Who isn’t picking Michigan State to win it all? Even President Barack Obama has a seat on the bandwagon now. The Commander-in-Chief revealed his NCAA tournament championship selection on ESPN’s “SportsCenter” this morning. His picks up through the Final Four were released Tuesday night. "Tom Izzo is a great tournament coach," Obama said to ESPN. "I've got Michigan State going all the way. ... He know how to motivate folks and he knows how to coach. My pick: Michigan State. Bring it home for me. It's been a while since I've won my pool." Besides the fourth-seeded Spartans and Louisville Cardinals, Obama picked No. 1 seeds Florida and Arizona to reach the Final Four. "I know these are not imaginative picks, but I think they're the right ones," Obama said. But beware: Obama has picked just one national champion correctly — North Carolina, which beat MSU in 2009. He picked Indiana to beat Louisville in last year’s NCAA tournament final.
