Obama has filled out a bracket and made it public every year since he took office. He has chosen the correct winner only once, when he picked North Carolina in 2009. Last year he had Louisville, who won the tournament, losing to Indiana in the championship game.

Obama has UCLA losing to Florida in the Sweet Sixteen. His only two big upset picks come in the second round, where he has No. 12 Harvard defeating Cincinnati in the East Regional and No. 12 North Dakota State defeating Oklahoma in the West Regional.
