They’re calling it Barack-etology 2014.
The yearly tradition of President Barack Obama’s picks for the NCAA Tournament is here again and the president’s national champion will make Magic Johnson happy: the Michigan State Spartans.
“Tom Izzo is a great tournament coach,” Obama said, according to ESPN. “I’ve got Michigan State going all the way. … He knows how to motivate folks and he knows how to coach. My pick: Michigan State. Bring it home for me. It’s been a while since I’ve won my pool.”
The president’s Final Four picks — Mich. State, Louisville, Florida and Arizona — have been quite popular and for his part, President Obama acknowledged as such.
“I know these are not imaginative picks, but I think they’re the right ones,” he said.
