President Barack Obama unveiled his bracket picks for the 2012 NCAA Tournament on Tuesday night, although he did so unintentionally. ESPN had been trying to tease his picks until the 9 a.m. SportsCenter on Wednesday, but mistakenly showed all of Obama’s picks by using various camera angles on the oversized bracket.
Obama has two No. 1 seeds — Kentucky and North Carolina — and two No. 2 seeds — Missouri and Ohio State, reaching the Final Four.
Obama has the Tar Heels beating the Wildcats in the championship game.
For every one of President Obama’s bracket selections in the 2012 NCAA Tournament, head to ObamasBracket.com for some “Baracketology.” You can also find Obama’s bracket picks in each of the previous three seasons.
President Obama correctly predicted North Carolina to win the national championship during his first year in the Oval Office in 2009, but he swung and missed on Kansas in each of the previous two seasons.
Also, don’t forget: The deadline to enter Obama’s 2012 Bracket Contest is Thursday before tip-off of the first games.
