Barack Obama unveils March Madness bracket, picks 2 B1G teams to make Final Four
March Madness is here, and everyone is in the mood for filling out some brackets!
That also includes former President of the United States, Barack Obama. He has traditionally filled out and shared his bracket with the public, and he unveiled his 2021 bracket via his personal Twitter account on Thursday morning.
The bracket does have some B1G flavor to it. Obama picked five B1G teams to advance to the Sweet 16 in Iowa, Michigan, Illinois, Ohio State, and Purdue. From there, he had three teams from the conference hitting the Elite Eight in Michigan, Illinois, and Ohio State.
The Final Four selected by Obama does have a lot of chalk in it with all four No. 1 seeds picked to make the national semifinals. Those matchups would be Gonzaga vs Michigan and Baylor vs Illinois. That sets up a Gonzaga vs Illinois national championship.
Here is his entire bracket:
