Introductions? Obama, Bulls; Bulls, Obama



As you may have heard, President Obama is making an appearance in Dayton on Tuesday night -- with Prime Minister David Cameron, no less -- to catch one of the First Four games that open the NCAA Tournament.

USF, of course, is on its way to Dayton and will be playing in the First Four on Wednesday night. Should the Bulls get a chance to meet the president on Tuesday, they might want to formally introduce themselves.

See, Obama's official re-election site, the aptly named, has a "Bracket Challenge" feature, and when you mouse over USF on the presidential bracket, it explains that USF stands for ... "University of San Francisco." Yes, in an election year, Obama is putting himself at risk at losing some key votes around Fowler Avenue.

(UPDATE: Yes, earlier this evening, someone in the Obama campaign noticed rampant Tweeting about the, ahem, typo, and fixed it to USF. Here's somebody's screengrab just you don't think I'm making it all up.)
