    Obama picks us!

    ESPN was previewing Obama's picks for when they release them tomorrow and I caught a glimpse of us beating UCONN.

    I didn't see the rest because it was fast but they are saying he has a #1 seed losing early... and it ain't UNC because they previewed him writing it into his Final Four

    Re: Obama picks us!

    This is a shot at ESPN, not the OP, but does anyone really care who Obama picks?

    Are you kidding me? That ruined my day. Everything that guy does sounds good when he says it... and then the opposite result occurs.

    Don't care, but here's how it will go.

    He'll lull everybody to sleep by picking chalk for awhile and then pick a minor upset so that makes the average person thinks he has a sack. Also, Georgetown will win one more game than they're supposed to, as long as the favorite isn't from a swing state.

    Baracketology | President Barack Obama's 2012 NCAA men's basketball tournament bracket

    Picked all the 8 seeds. Picked all the 10 seeds minor upsets of 7s
    Only 2 other upsets other than those 10-7 onse in the first round.
    Sweet 16 is all 1-4 seeds, except 11 seed NC St and 5 seed New Mexico
    Elite 8 is all the 1 and 2 seeds except for 2-duke being upset by 3-Baylor
    Final 4 is all 1s and 2s.

    Very 'safe' bracket.
