When it comes to picking a team outside of Kentucky to win this year's NCAA Tournament, Wisconsin has been a popular choice across the nation.
Well, according to the President's bracket, that's not the case.
As he's done for each of the past six years, Barack Obama filled out his NCAA Tournament bracket in a recent ESPN special, and selected Kentucky to win it all.
Obama has Wisconsin and Maryland as the only Big Ten teams to advance to the Sweet 16, with the Terps losing in the round of 16 to Kentucky, and the Badgers falling to Arizona in the Elite Eight.
The President has Michigan State and Ohio State winning its opening games and then losing in the next round. He has Indiana, Iowa and Purdue losing in the opening round.
For what it?s worth, Obama is 1-5 with his national champion picks, correctly tabbing North Carolina in 2009. A year ago, the President predicted Michigan State to down Louisville in the national title game. The Spartans lost to eventual national champion UCONN in the Elite Eight.
