PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — President Barack Obama has made the tradition of sharing his March Madness bracket with the world each year on ESPN. The tradition has continued this year and Obama is going with a Wildcats versus Wildcats National Championship Game.
The Commander in Chief is going with Villanova and Kentucky in the title game and has Kentucky beating Villanova to win the championship while going undefeated for the year.
Obama’s Final Four includes Kentucky, Arizona, Duke and Villanova.
Arizona is widely regarded as the best option to derail Kentucky’s quest for perfection. Obama made it clear that he agrees with that idea, but is sticking with Kentucky beating them to advance to the title game.
In an interesting twist, Arizona is one of three teams in the President’s Final Four with the Wildcats mascot.
Obama also selected Nova to beat Duke in what he called a “mild upset.”
Even though the President has Villanova going all the way to the final, he has them as the second best Wildcats team in the dance.
