When filling out his bracket on ESPN, Obama said of Michigan State's first round contest against Robert Morris "Izzo always has great teams" as he selected them to advance.
His bracket included a second round repeat of an early season matchup between the Spartans and the Kansas Jayhawks. Obama said "they're going to win it again," of the matchup.
But he drew the line when confronted with a potential Elite Eight matchup of the #2 seed MSU against the #1 seed Louisville Cardinals. There Obama picked the Cardinals.
While his picks have draw differing levels of interest and reaction, GoSpartans.net has the Spartans making it past Louisville into the Final Four and as a darkhorse to win the National Championship.
