Pres. Obama picking against Michigan teams in NCAA tournament

The NCAA Men’s basketball tournament begins in earnest tomorrow.   But one very well-known basketball fan expects no team with ties to Michigan will reach the Sweet 16.  

The White House released President Obama’s brackets today.  

The Commander and Chief expects a quick exit for the Golden Grizzlies of Oakland University.  Obama predicts 13th seeded OU will fall in its’s opening round game against the 4thseeded Texas Longhorns on Friday.  

Obama has higher hopes for the Michigan State Spartans and Michigan Wolverines.  The president expects both will advance to the second round.  But Obama predicts MSU will lose to 2ndseed Florida on Saturday and Michigan will lose to top seeded  Duke on Sunday.
