President is backing the Indiana Hoosiers in this year’s NCAA Tournament. In what has become an annual tradition, President Obama unveiled his bracket on ESPN, betting that top-seeded Louisville and Indiana will advance to the men’s national title game and that Indiana will emerge victorious. He has Ohio State (No. 2 seed) and third-seeded Florida making it to the Final Four. He picked a couple of surprises: Belmont beating Arizona and Minnesota besting UCLA. Other than 2009, when he correctly picked North Carolina, Obama hasn’t had great luck with March Madness.
