President Obama's 2012 Bracket Predictions: No.1 Kentucky Picked To Win South Region

President Barack Obama has filled out his NCAA Tournament bracket, as he does every year with ESPN's Andy Katz, and like most people, has the Kentucky Wildcats coming out of the South region to head to the Final Four.

A lot of the commander-in-chief's bracket picks are chalk, but Obama does have No. 3-seed Baylor taking out No. 2-seed Duke in the Elite Eight. The other upset the president is picking is the No. 12-seed Virginia Commonwealth Rams beating No. 5-seed Wichita State Shockers. VCU was the Cinderella team to make it to the Final Four last season, and Wichita State is a popular pick to do something similar in 2012. Obama also has the No. 10-seed Xavier Muskateers defeating the No. 7-seed Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

President Obama's Final Four picks are as follows:

No.1 Kentucky Wildcats vs. No. 2 Missouri Tigers

No.1 North Carolina Tar Heels vs. No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes
