March Madness: Obama favors Gators over Gophers

Last week, we told you President Barack Obama picked the Gophers to upset UCLA.

Well, the POTUS proved to America and Gopher Nation that he knows a thing or two about good choices and college basketball.

But while Obama also correctly picked Florida over Northwestern State, he is not predicting a Gopher upset in the round of 32. In fact, Obama has Florida in the Final Four.

Obama’s bracket is currently in the 30th percentile, which some Gopher fans should get a good chuckle out of, but imagine how much further his bracket would fall if Minnesota were to upset three-seeded Florida Sunday night?

I would, however, like to take a moment and applaud Obama’s trustworthy in the Big Ten as he had all seven conference teams advancing past the round of 64 — including Wisconsin (man, what a tragedy).
