After the Sweet 16 that saw a lot of people’s NCAA March Madness brackets busted a bit more with popular Louisville going down to Kentucky, President Obama’s Barackets’ can finally be declared busted. The President had picked Louisville to be in the national championship game so he has lost a lot of potential points to come. He is still ahead of 78.2% of entries, but it remains to be seen how many ahead of him picked Louisville to go so far. About 28% picked Louisville to reach the Final Four, which won’t happen for them, and 9.4% picked Louisville to be in national championship game. The thing we don’t know is how many are ahead or behind the Prez to determine how much he may or may not slide due to that bad pick.
I, too, had picked Louisville to get to the Final Four, but not to the national championship game. That’s a potential 160 points I can still pick up on the President if Arizona can get to the national championship game. My brackets are getting busted, too, but I’m still ahead of 93.3% of entrants at this point. The thing is, one game wrong now can wipe that lead away easily.
Onward to the Elite 8!
