The bracketologist in chief has revealed his 2013 NCAA Tournament predictions and he has picked the Indiana Hoosiers to win the national championship.
Even without a campaign on the horizon, swing states were well represented when President Barack Obama revealed his Final Four selections to Andy Katz of ESPN. Obama selected a pair of No. 1 seeds, Louisville and Indiana, to advance to Final Four in the men's bracket along with No. 2 Ohio State and No. 3 Florida. In a projected final between Rick Pitino's Cardinals and Tom Crean's Hoosiers, Obama picked Indiana to cut down the nets
"There will be a theme here," Obama told Katz as he filled out the bracket, "and that is I really do think the Big Ten was far and away the best conference this year."
The No. 1 seed in the East Region, Indiana opened the season atop the AP Poll and held that weekly spot more times than any other team in a tumultuous college basketball campaign. Led by Cody Zeller and Victor Oladipo, the Hoosiers boast one of the most efficient offenses in the country and emerged from the loaded Big Ten with the outright regular-season title. Having notched road wins at Michigan, Michigan State and Ohio State to go with a neutral court win over Georgetown, Indiana should not be startled by the bright lights and high stakes of the NCAA Tournament.
