Even though the days of Barack-etology on ESPN are over, former President Barack Obama is still making his picks for the NCAA Tournament public.
Obama has Michigan State winning it all with Virginia, North Carolina and Villanova as the other three teams in the Final Four for the men's tournament. On the women's side he selected UConn to defeat Mississippi State in the championship game with the other Final Four selections as Notre Dame and Louisville.
The former president warned, "Just because I have more time to watch games doesn't mean my picks will be any better, but here are my brackets this year."

He's picked some upsets in there as well with Loyola-Chicago (11) over Miami (6) in addition to Texas (10) over Nevada (7). He also has Syracuse (11) beating Arizona State in the play-in game and then going on to beating TCU (6).

It should be noted that last year Obama correctly picked North Carolina and UConn as the men's and women's champions.
President Donald Trump declined to publicly fill out a bracket last year and it's not clear if he will do one this year.
