Jordan Spieth revealed his March Madness bracket Thursday and he seems pretty confident in his national championship pick. Spieth is so confident, in fact, that he does not even care who plays in the national championship game since he’s picking Kansas as the national champion regardless.

Kansas might be a favorite this year, but as Spieth so aptly noted, that’s a bold choice. Why even play the tournament if Spieth is so confident that Kansas will win it all? And why couldn’t he have at least put someone down for the national final since it does not matter to Spieth who the opponent is?
The golfer is also kind of a traitor since he picked his alma mater, UT Austin, to make it only to the Sweet Sixteen. Spieth helped the Longhorns’ golf team to a national championship as a freshman in 2012 and also earned Big 12 Freshman of the Year and Player of the Year honors that season.
