Barack Obama Selects Missouri Among Final Four Teams, Picks UNC To Win 2012 NCAA Tournament

Barack Obama has released his full bracket on ESPN and it’s clear that Obama believes what many sportswriters and college basketball fans have been declaring all along: the Missouri Tigers were shafted in the seeding. The President himself chose the Missouri Tigers to make the trip to the Final Four in New Orleans along with the Kentucky Wildcats, Ohio State Buckeyes and North Carolina Tar Heels.

The Tigers are seeded second to Michigan State and were even chosen as the final No. 2 seed despite having 30 wins from a power conference like the Big 12. The move didn’t make sense at the time, and many are choosing Mizzou to make it that far — a sign that no one quite understands the charm of the Spartans as the top seed.

Frank Haith’s team has enjoyed a magical run in his first year replacing Mike Anderson and it will be an incredible cap to it all if they can make the Final Four.
