After President Barack Obama revealed his NCAA tournament bracket with Texas defeating Butler in the second round of Midwest regional play, Butler coach Chris Holtmann responded in kind.

Butler (22-10), the No. 6 seed in the Midwest, enters Thursday's game vs. Texas following an overtime loss to Xavier in the Big East tournament quarterfinals. Texas (20-13), the No. 11 seed, lost to Iowa State in the Big 12 tournament quarterfinals.

Holtmann's rejection of Obama's pick is certainly understandable, though it shouldn't hurt too much: Obama has the Longhorns losing to No. 3 Notre Dame in the Round of 32.
