Barack Obama Reveals His NCAA Tournament Bracket

I'm looking forward to finally seeing Ja Morant of Murray State play.

You've probably read countless pieces focusing on why the best teams in college basketball will win the NCAA Tournament. With freshman guard Coby White coming into his own as a floor general, UNC is now risky enough in the half court to win close games in the later rounds. We take a look at the best futures wagers to win the NCAA title.

North Carolina beat Duke twice, but both times were without Zion.

The buzz of an unprecedented Duke-North Carolina national championship game has been building all month. Imagine the crowd and ratings that would churn out. In the East, Duke is joined by the No. 2 seed Michigan State Spartans, the No. 4 seed Virginia Tech Hokies and No. 6 seed Maryland Terrapins. Of course, it is some mixture of the three because if it was all coaching then Duke would win every year. The best team in their region is Michigan State, and I think they would easily win that game.

Picking a bunch of long shots is usually not the way to go when predicting the Final Four. I think coaching matters, it absolutely does and you can see it with coaches like Brad Stevens who nearly stole a National Title while at Butler before going to the Celtics and proving he is unquestionably one of the best coaches in the league. Most SEC fans think the Gators were hosed in the league semi-finals in their loss to eventual champ Auburn and they likely were. Well, it's because you were scared. The Spartans just navigated the underrated Big Ten and have the tools to make a run in the Big Dance.

No. 12 seed Liberty could take down No. 5 seed Mississippi State, and I think No. 12 seed OR will take down No. 5 seed Wisconsin. But of those 32 teams, 20 of them went on to win it all in the end.

How Odell Beckham being traded to the Browns impacts the Eagles
Vernon, 28, is coming off his first Pro Bowl season after piling up seven sacks and a forced fumble over 11 games. Francesa criticized the Giants for their handling of Beckham's controversies and for appeasing the star receiver.

Moving across the bracket to the South Region, we find a group of 16 where Virginia is the No. 1 seed and Tennessee is the No. 2, with Purdue and Kansas State rounding out the top four. Next was rival North Carolina at 15.8 percent, followed by the other No. 1 seeds Gonzaga (8.9 percent) and Virginia (8.3 percent).

The action begins just after noon Eastern with seventh-seeded Louisville playing No. 10 seed Minnesota.

No. 7 seed Wofford takes on No. 10 seed Seton Hall, and I think that could be one of the closest games in the first round.

He even has the Ducks and Aggies making an appearance in the Sweet 16. So many good teams, so many good matchups, all battling for a chance to cut down the nets in Minneapolis.

The current iteration of Duke starts four freshman, while the 2010 crew had two first-year players getting sparse amounts of bench minutes. There will be games on all day, sometimes four or five at a time. You won't regret it.
