Wisconsin’s Zach Bohannon takes to twitter to invite Obama to practice

Zach Bohannon is a junior forward at Wisconsin with political aspirations of his own, so it’s no wonder that he came up with a plan for how President Obama could improve his standing in the polls in the swing state: spend an afternoon hooping with the Badgers.

Bohannon has been tweeting at the President’s official account to try and convince him to play pickup with the team after he visits the campus on Thursday. And he’s certainly been persistent:

You have to admire the kid’s effort.

He even reached out to SportsCenter, Andy Katz (a Wisconsin alum), ESPN and Craig Robinson, the Oregon State head coach and Obama’s brother-in-law. Robinson’s response?:

You should have come to OSU.”

Well played, sir. Well played.

And while Bohannon’s efforts could very well land him on the same basketball court as the President of the United States of America, I can’t help but wonder just how many of his followers happen to agree with the college hoops best follow:

Team unfollow @zbohannon
