Barack Obama's bracket includes one Big Ten team making it out of first weekend

For what it’s worth, Barack Obama doesn’t see the Big Ten having much success in the NCAA tournament.

Obama recently released his bracket, which has become an annual tradition, and the former President only has one Big Ten team making it out of the first weekend. That would be Big Ten tourney champ Michigan, which he has advancing to the Elite Eight.

As for the rest of the Big Ten, Obama has Wisconsin losing in the first round, and Maryland, Michigan State, Minnesota, Northwestern and Purdue all winning one game before falling on the opening weekend. Add it all up, and Obama has the Big Ten going 8-7.

See Obama’s full bracket below.
