It's not a slight on Lamar, rather that if the Cardinals beat the Vermont Catamounts in the opening round, they would ultimately run into his pick to win the national championship - the North Carolina Tar Heels. President Obama even admitted to ESPN's Andy Katz that he is a "sucker for North Carolina."
President Obama's bracket is mostly chalk in the Midwest region, but he does have No. 11-seed NC State Wolfpack taking down the No. 3-seed Georgetown Hoyas in the second round. In the South region, Obama has has No. 3-seed Baylor taking out No. 2-seed Duke in the Elite Eight.
President Obama's Final Four picks are as follows:
No.1 North Carolina Tar Heels vs. No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes
