After the most recent Bracket Matrix update (today, 1:10PM), Michigan is now the top 4 seed, unsurprisingly dropping from their previous spot as the second 3 seed.
36 brackets were updated today; here are the seeds given to Michigan and their frequency:
- 2 (one bracket -- all hail HoopsHD!)
- 3 (six brackets)
- 4 (21 brackets -- including ESPN, CBS, and Yahoo)
- 5 (seven times)
- 7 (one bracket)
Once again, Drew's Bracketology, who you'll discover is a Minnesota fan if you click over to his page (or just read this sentence), is quite bearish on Michigan (and Iowa), listing both as 7 seeds. His bias does not carry over to his Gophers, though, as he has them barely in the field as a 12 seed.
Other B1G seeds according to the Matrix:
- MSU: 2 seed
- Wisconsin: 3 seed
- Iowa: 5 seed
- OSU: 6 seed
- Minnesota: 10 seed
In addition, Nebraska is now listed on two brackets as a 12 seed. For reference there are currently 81 brackets in the Matrix.
