Former President Barack Obama Releases His Official 2018 March Madness Brackets

Former President Barack Obama Releases His Official 2018 March Madness Brackets

Former President Barack Obama does not have much faith in the Kentucky Wildcats in the NCAA Tournament.

His Final Four - Virginia (1), North Carolina (2), Villanova (1) and Michigan State (3). But even one win for the Aggies would be a big deal. Then he has Michigan State topping Villanova in the national semi finals and Virginia, the tournament's top seed, for the national championship. NMSU has lost 10 straight NCAA Tournament games, dating back to a 92-55 second-round loss to Cincinnati in 1993. Other upsets on his bracket include No. 12 New Mexico State besting No. 5 Clemson in the Midwest and Syracuse - provided it moves past Arizona State in a Wednesday night First Four game - defeating TCU, the Midwest's No. 6 seed.

Obama also has UConn, Notre Dame, Mississippi State and Louisville in the women's bracket, with UConn beating Mississippi State in the final game.

Obama picked 10 correct Sweet 16 teams previous year, but was 1-for-4 in the Final Four.

Barack Obama is no longer president, but he's still releasing his Barack-etology every year.

He declined an invitation previous year from ESPN to do so on-air, as Obama did during his presidency.
