NCAA Brackets 2011: President Obama's Tournament Picks Are Boring
President Obama Takes No Chances In His NCAA Tournament Picks
Let me preface this by saying that I understand there are bigger things going on in the world and that the President's NCAA picks are not the most important thing in the world.
President Barack Obama has unveiled his complete tournament bracket on ESPN.com and it's almost alarming how conservative the President is with his picks.
We knew that the President's Final Four consisted of all the top-seeded teams, but maybe he would have some upsets in the earlier rounds.
The highest-seeded teams that the President has in the Sweet 16 are No. 5 seeds Kansas State and Arizona.
You can respect the logic that some of these lower-seeds are just better, but the beauty of the tournament is the upsets. Last year, the President's bracket was shot early on because he didn't try going with any Cinderella teams in the dance.
He does have No. 12 Richmond beating No. 5 Vanderbilt in the first-round, but everyone has that pick.
President Obama's National Championship game is Ohio State against Kansas, with Kansas defeating the Buckeyes.
The President went chalk pretty much all the way through. For someone who is such a big basketball fan, you would think that the President would have gone a much more interesting route with his picks.
Of course he could get the whole thing right and make me look like a fool. It wouldn't be the first time, and won't be the last either.
