The president went public with his 2014 bracket selections in a segment on ESPN this morning called “Barack-etology.” Out of the six brackets Obama has filled out during his presidency, the only tournament champion he has correctly predicted was North Carolina in 2009.
This year, Obama has No. 4 seed Michigan State beating No. 4 seed Louisville in the NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Final this year. You can find the president’s complete bracket below.
While it may seem shocking in other years to see two No. 4 seeds in the championship match, Michigan St. and Louisville both enter the tournament as many expert’s picks to win the entire tournament. Rounding out Obama’s Final Four are No. 1 seeds Florida and Arizona.
Obama’s bracket remains fairly conservative and free of upset predictions, although he did take his alma mater Harvard (No. 12) to beat No. 5 Cincinnati in their first-round matchup.
Are you on board with the president’s picks? Who do you think will win the tournament?
