President Obama has kept one of his campaign promises and released his Final-Four picks to ESPN:
NEW YORK – President Barack Obama is picking Louisville, North Carolina, Memphis and Pittsburgh for the Final Four in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament.
The First Hoops Fan indulged in one of the week’s most popular pastimes, filling out his NCAA bracket Tuesday for ESPN. The network, which is posting Obama’s bracket online Wednesday and showing Andy Katz’s report on “Sportscenter” at noon EDT, will reveal the president’s pick for NCAA champion then.
The president stuck primarily with No. 1 seeds. The sole exception was Memphis, seeded No. 2 behind Connecticut in the West regional.
And since the topic of grades and athletes is sure to come up during the tourney, when will the president release his transcripts from Occidental and Columbia? If the grades of college athletes is somehow in the public domain, why not those of the president?
