Former President Barack Obama has picked his winner of March Madness: Michigan. In the women’s tournament, he’s got the UConn Huskies going all the way — which is a good bet, since they have won six of the last 10 national championships. Obama revealed that he picked No. 3 seeded Michigan State Spartans in a tweet, but he did offer a warning: just because he has more time to watch games this year doesn’t mean his picks will be any better.

Obama has a men’s Final Four of Virginia, North Carolina, Villanova and Michigan State. In his women’s bracket, the Final Four includes UConn, Notre Dame, Mississippi State and Louisville. While Obama was in office, he filled out a bracket every year. Last year, he correctly picked North Carolina and UConn as the men’s and women’s champions.
