Coach K Tells Obama: Focus On the Economy Not the Brackets

Duke Coach Mike Krzyzewski dissed Obama– “The economy is something that he should focus on, probably more than the brackets.”

Obama spent time explaining his NCAA basketball picks to the media yesterday.
CNN reported:

Duke basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski isn’t thrilled his team got snubbed by the leader of the free world.

“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,” Krzyzewski told a reporter from the Associated Press on Wednesday.

The president filled out his NCAA bracket for ESPN on Tuesday, and the Blue Devils weren’t among his Final 4 picks. Instead, he has Coach K’s squad falling to Pittsburgh in the Elite 8.

Obama’s pick to win the Big Dance? Duke’s archrival, the University of North Carolina.
