As you might expect, some intrepid journalist ran with this fun little piece and asked Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski what he thought of Obama saying their most bitter rival would take home the title.
Coach K echoed the sentiments of a lot of Joe Six-Packs out there, saying the president has bigger fish to fry.
At first glance, this quote really doesn't seem like a big deal to me. What was he expected to say? That it was great Obama picked North Carolina? That he hoped the First Fan won his bracket pool?""Somebody said that we're not in President Obama's Final Four, and as much as I respect what he's doing, really, the economy is something that he should focus on, probably more than the brackets," Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said from the Blue Devils' first-round site in Greensboro, N.C.
The people at the Drudge Report see this story a little different than I do, choosing to lead their site with it. The headline reads "DUKE COACH SLAM DUNKS OBAMA: FOCUS ON ECONOMY NOT NCAA PICKS."
What do you think? Is this even a criticism from Coach K or simply what he was expected to say? And how big of a story is this, really?
