The POTUS envisions Michigan State University going all the way

If President Barack Obama ever decides to give up this whole commander-in-chief gig, he could easily bounce back as a sports analyst.


On Wednesday, the POTUS filled out his annual NCAA March Madness bracket with ESPN, picking Michigan State University to become the victor over the University of Louisville.


"I think Michigan State, at this point, is playing in as tough a conference as there is," he said. "I think they know how to win. I think they're getting healthy. I think they're going to do really well."


He added, "[Coach Tom Izzo] knows how to motivate folks and he knows how to coach. So, my pick-- Michigan State. Bring it home for me. It's been a while since I've won my pool."


The Florida Gators and Arizona Wildcats rounded out Obama's Final Four picks. Although this is his most upset-heavy Final Four bracket with regards to seeding, the president is sure he made a sound decision.


While filling out his bracket, he noted, "I know these are not imaginative picks, but I think they’re the right ones."
