That’s as far as they get though.

Even though he’s not residing in The White House anymore, Barack Obama has still put out his NCAA Tournament bracket this year.

And guess what? He has the Arizona Wildcats making their first Final Four since 2001.

Here’s a look at his full bracket:

Obama has the Wildcats losing to Duke in the Final Four, and then a rival-filled title game between Duke and UNC.

Back in 2009, the former president correctly predicted the Tar Heels winning the National Championship, and last year, he also had them losing in the championship game, so he’s riding with Roy Williams again in this year’s version.

In his bracket, Obama has Arizona getting through North Dakota, VCU, Florida State, and Notre Dame before ultimately losing to Coach K and the Blue Devils. He has Bucknell beating West Virginia in the first round, which would certainly be a surprising result in the West Region.

While Obama may have Arizona in his Final Four, me and Ryan made our picks and we both have the Cats losing in the Elite Eight.

Be sure to join our bracket group. Who knows, maybe Obama is in there too.
