For someone who has a former Duke player as his personal aide, President Obama is getting very little love from the Blue Devils today. Especially annoyed is coach Mike Krzyzewski.
Obama unveiled his NCAA tournament bracket on Wednesday, and as we see here, he has Duke losing to Pittsburgh in the East Regional. Krzyzewski was not amused:
"Somebody said that we're not in President Obama's Final Four, and as much as I respect what he's doing, really, the economy is something that he should focus on, probably more than the brackets," Krzyzewski told a reporter from the Associated Press on Wednesday.
As for the rest of the President's bracket, it's being criticized as "too timid" by many. Picking Morgan State to upset Oklahoma may look good on Wednesday night and get people talking about your bravery, but I thought the idea was — just as in a Presidential election — to win the thing?
His bracket is kind of messy, though. Poor Louisville.
