Barack Obama Reveals 2021 March Madness NCAA Tournament Bracket Picks
By Larry Rupp
March Madness is back and that means celebrity bracket picks are as well. As a noted sports fan, former President Barack Obama played basketball throughout high school and college. He has made it a tradition to release his NCAA Tournament predictions for the past decade or so.
Now, Obama spends his time writing books, producing films and working in the political realm. That still hasn't stopped him from filling out a bracket. He doesn't have too many upsets picked this year and predicts a Championship game between two No. 1 seeds in the field.
In fact, Obama's Final Four features all four of the No. 1 seeds this year. While that isn't impossible, past tournaments have shown that the odds of that happening are very low. The only true outliers he has feature a No. 6 seed in USC as well as a No. 3 seed in Texas making it to the Elite 8.
His bracket does have a number of small upsets taking place in the first round including the No. 4 Virginia Cavaliers falling to the No. 13 Ohio Bobcats. However, he sides with most of America as he has the Gonzaga Bulldogs winning it all by defeating the Illinois Fighting Illini in the Championship game.
