Barack Obama's bracket picks Indiana to cut down the nets

Alex Wong

Barack Obama filled out his NCAA Tournament bracket on Wednesday, and for the next few weeks, the leader of the free world is an Indiana Hoosiers fan.

March Madness is here, and President Obama is getting in on the fun in the White House. It's the fifth straight year Obama's filled out a bracket, and he unveiled his picks on ESPN Wednesday morning. So who does Obama like this year?

He's keeping things pretty chalky until the Sweet 16. His big upset is 13-seeds Boise State/Lasalle over 4-seed Kansas State in the first round, and beyond that he's got the top four seeds advancing in the other three regions, with 5-seed Wisconsin rounding out the Sweet 16 full of favorites.

On the other hand... Obama likes 4-seed Michigan to knock off 1-seed Kansas in the South, plus 5-seed Wisconsin taking down Gonzaga in the West, which could be proof that even the President of the United States thinks it's kinda bullshit that Gonzaga has been the number one team in the country for the past few weeks.

Obama's Final Four has 3-seed Florida and 2-seed Ohio State to go along with top seeds Louisville and Indiana, and he's got Indiana winning it all.

"BUT UGH WHY IS THE PRESIDENT PICKING BASKETBALL GAMES WHEN HE'S SUPPOSED TO BE RUNNING THE COUNTRY?" Please don't be the person who asks this. There are more important questions to be asked and they involve alien security guards and Illuminati conspiracies.

Sadly, ESPN didn't ask those questions.

"I'm going with Louisville," he told ESPN in the SportsCenter segment that had nothing to do with aliens or the Illuminati. "And I'm going with Indiana. These are the two best teams right now, and for the championship I'm going back to the Big Ten. I think this is Indiana's year."
