President Obama thinks Marquette and Wisconsin will get to the Sweet 16. (PHOTO: ESPN)

Obama puts Bucky, Marquette in Sweet 16


March Madness is here, and the basketball action heats up in Milwaukee this week as the Bradley Center hosts the Midwest and West regional rounds of the "big dance." With fans flocking from near and far, the editorial staff at OnMilwaukee.com thought we'd help greet our new visitors with a week's worth of features and guides to everything that makes our city a great place to visit. It's "Welcome to Milwaukee Week" at OnMilwaukee.com!

As fans put the finishing touches on their 2010 NCAA Tournament bracket sheets, many are trying to predict just how far Marquette and Wisconsin can go in this year's Big Dance.

A lot of college basketball experts think the Badgers and Golden Eagles have what it takes to at least get past the first round and maybe into the Sweet 16.

It looks like President Obama thinks so, too.

According to a picture released today by ESPN, Obama picked both Marquette (which opens Thursday against Washington) and Wisconsin (which plays Friday against Wofford) will move on to next weekend's East Regional Semifinals in Syracuse, N.Y.

The picture shows Obama picked Marquette to get past New Mexico and Wisconsin by Cornell in second-round match-ups.

Unfortunately, the photo doesn't show Obama's full bracket, but media reports say that the First Fan -- who also filled out a women's bracket -- picked Kansas, Kansas State, Kentucky and Villanova to make the Final Four.

Yeah - I agree, he should be tethered to that oval office desk working around the clock for douche bags like you two...no vacations, no stress relieving activities, just drone-like working non-stop to find jobs for your uneducated lazy asses...

Obama filling out a bracket instead of working to get jobs for 'Mericans! Makes me absolutely sick to see our President doing ANYTHING but working in the Oval Office! You'd never catch Bush do anything but be on task for 'Merica! God bless 'Merica, God bless H.W. Bush!

Glad he had time to work on his bracket instead of trying to work on creating jobs for people and turning around the economy. Any distraction from really working...
