President Obama jokes MSU sports fans are 'greedy'

President Barack Obama was on the campus of Michigan State University today to sign into law an agriculture spending bill at MSU’s Equine Performance Center. Midway through his speech, Obama took some time to talk about the Spartans’ recent success on both the football field and the basketball court.

“I’m also here to do some scouting on my brackets,” Obama joked. “I just talked to coach Izzo. Spartans are looking pretty good.”

Obama also spoke about meeting with MSU football coach Mark Dantonio

“You already got a Rose Bowl victory,” Obama said to the Michigan State students. “You guys are…. You’re greedy. You want to win everything.”

It’s certainly a good time to be a Spartan!
