President Barack Obama has filed his official 2012 NCAA Tournament Bracket and he's picked the Missouri Tigers to make it all the way to the Final Four in New Orleans, showing that most believe the Tigers should have won the No. 1 seed over the Michigan State Spartans. The other choices for the President include Kentucky, Ohio State and North Carolina.

The Missouri Tigers won 30 games in a power conference, so it's clear that they can play with anyone. They split the season series with Kansas and demolished the Baylor Bears in the Big 12 conference final. For those who knock them for a poor non-conference schedule, the team has done everything it can do with what it has been given. And it's clear that Missouri can score on anyone at will.

Obama has a bracket challenge available for those interested in matching wits with the leader of the free world.
