Cbssports.com's Jerry Palm posted an updated bracketology this morning. Similar to what we've been seeing from other sites, such as espn earlier this week, Michigan is still a 3 seed.
I think it's safe to say that Michigan's win this past Tuesday does put us at a firm 3 seed.
So now we have 3 regular season games left: vs Purdue, at Illi, and at Penn St. We should win all 3, but we will probably win at least 2 out of 3. That puts Michigan at 23-8. We get a bye in the conference tourney either way. We SHOULD win the first game (second round) which puts Michigan in the semi-finals. We do all that and finish 24-9. I say that puts Michigan at a 3 seed still, which would be great.
How to go to a 2 seed: go 3-0 to finish season (easily possible) and then go to the conference tourney finals. That would put us at 26-8 ….what do you think,..you think that would be enough to get to a 2 seed…or would we need to be co-conference regular season champs also (and also win the conference tourney)?
We obviously can still drop to a 4 or 5 seed by losing another regular season game and losing in the first game (second round) of the conference tourney (possible). And we could drop to a 6-7 seed by completely stumbling.
