MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Gov. Scott Walker’s promise of a “big announcement” on April Fool’s Day turned out to have nothing to do with presidential politics.

Walker, widely expected to compete for the GOP presidential nomination, took to Twitter to promise his followers big news at 10 a.m. on Wednesday.

At the appointed hour, Walker tweeted his support for the Wisconsin Badgers, who play top seed Kentucky on Saturday in the Final Four.

“America needs big, bold leadership & that’s why I’m supporting Coach Ryan & the @BadgerMMB Saturday,” Walker wrote, adding the hashtag #AprilFools.
