Former President Obama picks Michigan State, UConn in NCAAs

Former President Obama picks Michigan State, UConn in NCAAs

Barack Obama thinks the Big Ten's national championship drought is about to come to an end.

While current president Donald Trump doesn't fill out NCAA Tournament brackets, former president Barack Obama continues to participate in the annual ritual enjoyed by millions. He has not said whether or not he will fill out a bracket for this year's tournament.

Obama picked the Spartans to beat No. 1 overall seed Virginia in the title game. There are some upsets in there including Loyola-Chicago (11) over Miami (6).

Obama has Michigan State winning it all with Virginia, North Carolina and Villanova as the other three teams in the Final Four for the men's tournament.

Talking about the powertrain, the 2018 Hero Passion Pro and Passion XPro use the same 109 cc single-cylinder, air-cooled motor. The two Hero Passion motorcycles have received a slight bump in power and minor styling updates for the 2018 model year.

He also has Texas (10) over Nevada (7).

Obama has UConn winning the NCAA Women's National Championship. He has UConn avenging its Final Four loss to Mississippi State a year ago in the title game.

Joining UConn and Mississippi State in the Final Four in Obama's bracket are Notre Dame (29-3) and Louisville (32-2).

He declined an invitation previous year from ESPN to do so on-air, as Obama did during his presidency. There has been no indication he will this year, either, though a recent poll shows 38 percent of Americans would like him to do so.
