I don't think they changed Les at all actually
national champs baby

stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly

so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
That's actually what I am going with in my bracket. Likely? No. Possible and full of awesomeness? Fo shizzle
I dunno, maybe it's just me, but I'm hoping for Michigan to take down Duke in the final.
Speaking for the more risk-averse fans, I would prefer to see Michigan in the NCG against just about anyone else.
Michigan vs. North Carolina A&T all the way!
They can only meet in the final 4. South and midwest meet in the final four.
life is like a box of chocolates... and you got the Whizzo Quality Assortment
You fell victim to one of the classic blunders. The most famous is never get into a land war with Asia. But only slightly less well known is this: never go in against a Sicilian, when death is on the line!
My bad. Looking at too many spreadsheets today...
I have Michigan over OSU as well

brackets that's what I picked. I couldn't stand to pick them that far and know I was going with my heart on us a little, but I just see some favorable match-ups for our style. I think we have jitters and nerves the first game and its tighter than it should be but I believe a victory will take some of that away and then we can run.
One man...Goodbye....Hello Heisman
Trey Burke Sr. has M winning it all:
...just became one of my favorite NBA players.
All right Lemmings. Bring the heat.
based off of complicated coin-flipping scenarios. We're gonna win it all. It's science
I have them losing to duke in the final by 1 point in one of mine. It's like I'm dreaming up the perfect pain.
All in for some manball.
I reached the same result utililizing the infallible Magic 8 Ball methodology
I have M, MSU, Ohio State, and Indiana in my FF, with M winning it all.
That's my B1G Homer bracket...love it.
Even if we make it to the title game (let's face it, the tournament is a crapshoot, and our overall play suggests we're not ready to make a deep run), Ohio State is honestly one of the last, if not the last team I'd want to play. I just don't think I could really handle losing to them with a national title at stake. It would ruin me.
Then again, in that crazy, wild scenario where we both made the title game and Michigan won, I'd make it my personal goal in life to never let any OSU fan live that game down, either.
Still, bottom line: I'd rather play just about anyone else.
It's been a lot. Its been a roller coaster that for some reason seemed like it would never get good. But you know what? We kept fighting. It's like that old saying goes, "Those Who Stay Will Be Champions." -David Molk
I hope you don't take my tone in the post as not believing Michigan can win it all. I was more so commenting on the probability of an OSU-Michigan title game. That would be the ultimate win for a Michigan fan and would validate the B1G in so many ways. I just don't realistically see two B1G teams making the title.
I don't think it is unrealistic to see two B1G teams in the final at all. IU, Ohio, Michigan, State, and probably Wisconsin are all capable of a deep run. And Ohio/Wisconsin seem to have the weakest route to the Final 4. I don't think anyone would be that surprised to find two B1G teams in the final at all.
I have Michigan defeating IU and Louisville beating OSU
NCG I have Michigan winning 80-79
I have the same final four and outcome.
Nate (or a mod) - why do threads you create have a distinct appearance from all other user threads? They don't have the same buttons (e.g. first new comment), they don't have the frame, etc.
The swag is back.
Who is Nate?
I love Greg Mattison
Oops - misread the username as another poster - NateVolk. But the question still stands - what causes certain posters posts to have an entirely different design format?
I did post it from my iPhone. I wonder if that could have an effect on it?
My bracket has a final 4 of MSU, OSU, Michigan, then Miami, with Miami taking it.
I have 5 B1G teams in my Elite Eight. Suppose that happens, but only 1 makes the FF, is that conference shame and fail?
And it's Wisconsin
someone will offer their prediction, and then say "book it".
at that point, we should probably book it.
this is my prediction.
I am not really Coach Schiano. -Coach Schiano on Mgoblog
Someone will criticize someone else's pick. Book it!
I would have to move out of OHIO for real after that. To keep from hurting someone or them getting me first...
Hard work beats talent...when talent fails to work hard! Go Blue!!
1976 Indiana vs Michigan with a Hoosier win. It's possible for a BIG match-up. Buckeyes and whiskey got the best bracket to make a run for the title. We can beat anyone in our bracket, but better dig deep. Gonna be a fun three weeks!
"Everybody thinks of changing humanity, but nobody thinks of changing himself." - Leo Tolstoy
I have a "few" brackets and as many of you i have a big ten final four and a michigan ohio state championship (differents brackets). Just think though, the football rivalry looks as if it may be coming back around and don't get me wrong I've enjoyed the last decade or so of the football rivalry but I have to admit it wasn't very exciting during the rich rod era kind of knowing we were going to win. Nothing was better than when we were ranked 1 & 2 and it came down to the end, it would be great if we could swing that kind of meaningful games in basketball as well
I like that CBS contributors actually respond to the articles comments.

How ridiculous would a Final Four of Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and Michigan State be? Id be on the edge of my seat the entire time
That I remember was three from the Big East in 1985. Two is pretty common.
Michigan in fact has been in the Final Four three times with another Big Ten team. We lost to Indiana in the championship game in 1976, beat Illinois in the semi-finals in 1989 and did not play Indiana in 1992.
