While the days of Barack-etology on ESPN are over and President Trump is not filling out an NCAA tournament bracket this year, former President Barack Obama's picks can still mesmerize us.

Obama's picks for the 2017 Big Dance were posted on his foundation's website on Wednesday.

Obama put Duke and North Carolina in his national championship, with the Tar Heels as his projected champion. Kansas and Arizona were also in his Final Four.

His most surprising pick was No. 7 seed Michigan reaching the Elite Eight.
