Skip to comments.President Obama's Final Four: Kansas, Kansas State, Kentucky and Villanova
Posted on 03/16/2010 8:38:32 PM PDT by TornadoAlley3
Just like last season, President Barack Obama is filling out a bracket for the men's tournament. This year though, he'll be submitting his predictions for the women's field, too.
In an ESPN exclusive, President Barack Obama filled out his bracket predictions for the 2010 NCAA Men's and Women's Basketball Tournaments with ESPN.com senior writer Andy Katz and ESPN basketball analyst Doris Burke for air on ESPN's SportsCenter on Wednesday, March 17, at noon ET, and Friday, March 19, at 9 a.m., respectively [...]
Said Katz, After spending a few minutes with President Obama at the White House it was evident he has clearly paid attention to college basketball this season ... [H]e was aware of injuries, star players and key matchups in evaluating the top teams in the field.
Both of Obama's brackets will be posted online shortly after the segments air, but in the meantime, here are his Final Fours.
Men's: Kansas, Kansas State, Kentucky and Villanova
Women's: Connecticut, Notre Dame, Stanford and Tennessee
Thank God he is paying attention to something. He certainly is not paying attention to the American people.
Kiss of death for the Jahawks...
Thank God he didn’t pick my team.
It is amazing. I haven’t even had a moment to look at the brackets this week, much less complete them. This guy is supposedly running the country.
I wish Obama a great future in basketball analysis and prognostication. Leave presiding over our beloved nation to responsible adults, please.
Crap he already jinxed Kentucky once..Bad enough Obama babe Ashley Judd is shown at every event, and we’ll lose at least 3 to 4 starters to the NBA, now this.
Here’s to a good run anyway..
From the Vegas Insider: “UPDATED ODDS TO WIN THE 2009-2010 NCAA MEN’S BASKETBALL CHAMPIONSHIP”
Kansas 2/1 2/1
Kentucky 7/2 7/2
Syracuse 7/2 7/2
Duke 8/1 8/1
I see Obama is again not picking Duke like last year.
"From each according to his ability, to each according to his need." If that is your mantra, why would you watch college basketball, or any sport, for that matter. Obama should only watch sports where they do not keep score. Socialists are hipocrits.
Great There goes my money he picked Villanova. Is there anything he touches that doesn’t turn to sh*t? Wait do not answer me ...please.
I think Duke may be a little underpriced at 8/1 relative to recent years when they were overrated. This is the best Duke team since 2004.
Syracuse at 7/2 is a bad bet IMO. Kentucky is about right.
Just my $.02.
Great, the Messiah puts my pick in the crapper with Former Governor Corzine, nice.
Can I tell you I don’t give a f*** what this bast*** signs up for. He is a low down scamp.
Sure, go ahead. I always wanted to see what it was like to be a psychologist.
Every where you look — Obama. Every topic — Obama. Want to try to watch sports to escape for awhile? Obama.
Obama. Obama. Obama. Every where.
I’ve seen film of giant billboards and posters on the sides of buildings of Mao and other dictators in other countries. The people cannot escape them. They permeate every aspect of society.
This creepy phenomenon is now fading into our society too.
Thanks NObama. Couldn’t you have just picked one team from Kansas and not both of them? Geesh.
Though I certainly hope the Obammunist hasn't jinxed us like he did before the first SC game.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Glad I have only one of them. Ohio State, Syracuse, Kentucky and Baylor are my Final Four.
When will Pelousi and the dimocRATS attempt to force a vote to make sure Obozo’s picks come through???
Now, don’t mince words, CT. Tell us how you really feel about Obozo!
Kansas is a state that Obummer can’t win in 2012 so the socialist leader is trying to garner points with Kansans.
Kansas probably yes, Kentucky yes, but Kansas State and Villanova? The last two I don’t think so, especially Villanova, which has been playing poorly lately.
This POTUS stuff is harder than he thought so he is preparing for a career reporting sports?
What does Northern Alabama have against Kansas?
So much for Obama's claim that he wouldn't rest until the job situation got better.
Northern Iowa 69 Kansas 67
Saint Mary’s, Calif. 75 Villanova 68

Good they are showing HIS final four so he can’t adjust the picks like he will probably do AFTER THE SEGMENTS AIR.
Butler 63 Kansas State 59
West Virginia 73 Kentucky 66
That completes the 0's final four picks. None of them make it to the final four.
Just to be fair all his women’s basketball picks are still alive but may or may not yet make it to the final four.
oops check that....Tennessee for his womens picks has been eliminated. The other 3 are still alive.
