A tradition as old as “thank you, Obama” jokes, Barack Obama unveiled his March Madness brackets for the 2021 NCAA tournament on both women and men earlier this week, and they have some big events

While No. 44 tries to play it safe, what he saw in the Final Four is a rarity that has only happened once in the history of the NCAA tournament

There are also some surprises for women: A surprise is brewing on the right side, and UConn has a bit of (unfortunate) history of its own

The former president got off to a 2-2 start UCLA and Texas Southern both won their first four games on Thursday night

Obama plays it safe here and picks all four No. 1 seeds to make it to the Final Four. The last and only time all four No. 1 seeds made it to the semifinals in 2008, UCLA, North Carolina, and Kansas Memphis all made it into the Final Four KU won the tournament this year
