Andy Katz was just shown on ESPNU with President Obama. As they talked (no specific picks were revealed verbally), the camera drifted past the West Region, and YEP, there it was, Syracuse and Florida State picked to advance.

I'm not going to be political (wouldn't do that), but will say that I hope his pick in this case is not so swift.

President Obama had us in the Sweet 16 last year and we lost in the first round.

Florida is much more in play politically than Washington. Wise political move on the President's part. Don't think he worries about Washington voting Republican.

Didn't he ride the North Carolina horse all the way last year? I've forgotten. That team was amazing, as we found out in the Sweet Sixteen, though I guess we played them about as well as anyone else.

Is Florida a swing state?:p

I actually like the fact that he does this, kind of like when he wore his White Sox jacket at the all star game. Don't worry about offending people.

If I was president, I would wear a Gonzaga sweat shirt at my press conferences.

I think he also picked Villanova to win it all, which shows some hypocracy on his part if he's placing defense over offense. Should they win it all, Villanova would have one of the worst defenses of a national champ in recent history.

I think it would be pretty wonderful if St. Mary's (if survive a very tough Richmond) could take out Villanova.

And so would I, 23!! So..... why wouldn't Obama pick one team and stick with it, like..... OSU?

This thread almost belongs in the the OCC.

But then again,..... several frequent threads in the MBB belong in the FOO. :D

Peace, everyone. Let's all just enjoy the moment of our Zags making it into The Dance for the 12th year in a row!! :clap:

I'm a little curious how the President selected regarding the other Catholic universities in the field. Anyone know? Did he pick a couple to advance?

Pish posh on President Obama's pick...

I'm interested to know who GOD picked to win?

I say if God is a Gael(so I've heard) and since the Gaels are part of the WCC, then it'd be most wise for God to pick the Zags! $$$$ for all!

Its all good, God is on our side. ;)

If God is a Gael, then why are they 4-19 against the Zags in our last 23 tilts?

Don't forget, God's a suffering savior. I don't know if picking up the cross and following Him in the tourney will work out to our temporal advantage :D
