Obama Shows Little March Madness Love For Texas Schools
Texas -- not just UT, but the state's other March Madness teams -- ain't getting much love from Barack Obama.
His annual bracket picks do have Baylor, A&M and Texas getting past the first round, but not UH.
Take heart, Coog fans: As Obama says, "I got killed last year in the first round."
Texas, he says, will lose to Kentucky ("I love Kentucky's freshmen, I think the committee gave them a pretty tough draw, but I think they're going to beat Texas"), but Baylor and A&M will advance to the Sweet Sixteen (meaning Baylor beats Sam Houston State in the first round).
But the Bears and Ags go no father. And Kansas beats Kentucky for the title.
