Obama picks IU!

Who says the president doesn’t sometimes see red?

President Obama filled out his NCAA tournament bracket today and, to the delight of Hoosier Nation, picked IU as his national champion.

“I think it’s Indiana’s year,” the president told ESPN this morning.

Joining IU in Obama’s final four were Florida, Louisville and Ohio State. Obama predicted that the No. 1 seeded Hoosiers would defeat Louisville in the championship game.

This is the fifth year that Obama has filled out a bracket for the NCAA tournament. Though he’s had mixed results in past tournament selection efforts, Hoosier fans can only hope that the president returns to his 2009 performance, when he correctly picked North Carolina to win the title.
