How far does President Obama have the Horns going in the NCAA tourney?

Posted March 16th, 2016


President Barack Obama has released his picks for the NCAA Tournament, and he has the Kansas Jayhawks taking it all.

Obama makes his tournament picks every March, but he hasn’t correctly chosen the winner since picking North Carolina in 2009.

So where does the president have No. 6 seed Texas? Knocking out No. 11 Northern Illinois on Friday before a projected weekend loss to No. 3 Texas A&M. (Hmph, thanks, Obama.)


He has Texas faring better in the women’s tournament, reaching the Elite Eight before falling to UConn.
