Former President Barack Obama Releases His Official 2018 March Madness Brackets

Obama tweets March Madness bracket, picks Michigan State men, UConn huskies women

Obama tweets March Madness bracket, picks Michigan State men, UConn huskies women

Throughout his presidency, he made it a tradition of sorts to reveal his NCAA tournament picks - men's and women's.

The former president warned, "Just because I have more time to watch games doesn't mean my picks will be any better, but here are my brackets this year".

His Final Four - Virginia (1), North Carolina (2), Villanova (1) and Michigan State (3).

Even with Donald Trump now in the oval office, the 44th President has continued to unveil his bracket to the world.

Obama has Michigan State winning the men's title and - no surprises - UConn winning the women's championship. There are some upsets in there including Loyola-Chicago (11) over Miami (6). Then he has Michigan State topping Villanova in the national semifinals and Virginia, the tournament's top seed, for the national championship.

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

In the women's bracket, Obama is predicting a rematch of last year's final: UConn vs. Mississippi State.

A year ago he picked the North Carolina men and UConn women to win, and at least the Tar Heels obliged. Last year, he selected North Carolina to beat Duke in the men's tournament.

Oh, and if you were wondering, President Trump opted not to fill out a bracket past year.
