BARACKetology - President Obama Makes His NCAA Picks (COOL)

Even with all of the madness going on with the economy, President Obama took some time out to sit down with ESPN's Andy Katz and fill out his NCAA March Madness bracket.  This is by far one of the coolest things a a current president has ever done in my opinion.

We all knew Obama could ball a little bit but he apparently he has a lot of basketball knowledge as well.  You can tell that he follows college basketball quite a bit and isn't just a poser.  His brother-in-law (Craig Robinson) is the head coach at Oregon State so I'm sure he has some great college hoops discussions to keep him on his game.

He ended up going with North Carolina as the champs.  He even said "I picked you all last year.  You let me down.  This year don't embarass me in front of the nation.  I'm counting on you."  I don't think you need much more than that to get motivated as a team!  Look out for UNC!  Maybe that is incentive to go update your brackets before it's too late!

Here is Andy Katz' summary of the interview and his take on Obama's hoops knowledge:
