President Obama's 2012 Bracket Predictions: Lamar Is Just A Casualty

No one is going to hear President Obama mention the Lamar Cardinals when he is filling out his 2012 NCAA bracket, because it is almost as if Lamar is not even in the tourney.

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 Kentucky Wildcats vs. No. 2 Missouri Tigers

No.1 North Carolina Tar Heels vs. No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes
