Coin flips. 1 seed vs a 16 seed gets 5 flips (1/32 chance to succeed), 2s get 4 flips (1/16), 3s and 4s get 3 flips (1/8, so I'm roughly guessing a single 3 or 4 seed will get upset in every tournament), 5s and 6s get 2 flips, and the rest is a true 50/50 shot.
The Final Four and Championship is always a 50/50 shot. It usually gives me a Cinderella team, which is always fun. IIRC this year's Cinderella is Bucknell, with Albany upsetting Duke but not getting any farther.
I learned my lesson last year, where I actually looked into matchups and made "great" predictions but finished in last place. Even the dog did better than I did (selected all dog mascot teams regardless of seeds, two dog matchups goes to the higher seed)

IU and MSU are both at 11-2. We're at 9-4. We need BOTH IU and MSU to drop two games and for us to win out.
Luckily, we play both of these teams once more. If we win (quite a big 'if' considering our current play) both of these, we just need IU and MSU to both drop one game.
Even more luckily, MSU and IU play each other. That means regardless, if we win out, we will be tied with one of these teams if IU/MSU wins every other game they should. Who to root for tomorrow is the team most likely to drop one of their remaining games not against Michigan.
Indiana doesn't really have difficult games outside of MSU and MICH. @MINN could be interesting, but I don't feel comfortable relying on the Gophers.
MSU still has to go to OSU and has a moderately difficult game at home against Wisconsin. They'll be favored to win both of those games, but I believe it's more probable for them to drop one of those two than Indiana dropping to the Gophers.
Therefore, I'll be hoping Sparty wins the game on Tuesday. If everything goes according to plan, we'll have a 3-way tie between IU, MSU, and Michigan. Plus we'll have quite the streak going into the tournament. Woo.

|1 year 18 weeks ago||Once Hoke and co. get Juniors||
Once Hoke and co. get Juniors and Seniors that they've recruited, then we can judge their effectiveness. We're still dealing with the round Denard peg in the square Borges hole, and I don't know how much we can actually pin that on Borges because he doesn't have a whole lot of experience dealing with somebody like him.
We got lucky with bounces last year, disguising a probable 8-4/9-3 record to 10-2. We're not getting as lucky this year.
To be fair, I do think Borges deserves a bit of the blame. Some of these playcalls have been mind-blowing.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||I'm extremely interested in||
I'm extremely interested in how the coaches are going to spin this mess of a game. There are so many questions:
Did Rawls kick a small child or something to piss somebody off? I can't see any reasons he doesn't get more touches especially when Fitz isn't performing well. Maybe it's not Fitz's fault, but at least TRY.
We played Gardner last year at QB multiple times--even with Denard also on the field. What happened to that? Has the coaching staff said "No, you're a WR now, no snaps for you lol" or completely revamped the playbook (which to me seems like a couple of pages at times) to where Gardner would be lost? I have no problem with Bellomy coming in, but when the dude goes 0/10 with a couple of picks to start, you have to think "Hmm, I don't think this is working. Don't we have another scholarship QB on the roster?"
Frankly, I believe Borges has no clue how to use Denard, and is trying to force him to run plays Borges is more familiar with, while at the same time trying to minimize Denard's mistakes. The result: obvious runs and short passes. I was pleased at the deep ball appearing a couple times today, but holy WR drops Batman. Our offense as a whole just looks completely illprepared to play against a team we don't have a massive talent advantage over. This is sickening.
I understand it's not fair to raid the Ann Arbor Torch and Pitchfork co. until Borges has had QBs progress through his system, but shit son, you have to make do with what you have.

I'm quite conflicted on this issue. Say we honored Tom Brady as a Michigan Legend (just pretend with me) this year and Denard was switched to #10 to honor that. I wouldn't be okay with that because of how closely associated he is with #16 right now. Plus, you'd be depriving him of his chance to make #16 a legend of its own.
I mean, I do like "honoring" former players (especially when the families support it) instead of just retiring them, but are you just funneling all the great players into wearing these "legendary" numbers in their junior/senior years?
But then there's the problem of finding people worthy to honor these unretired numbers. I don't support the idea of freshmen having them because A) The added pressure/exposure. and B) They haven't done anything to merit it.
I dunno. This is a really sticky situation and just leaving the numbers as "retired" is much easier. I would support having one patch on offense (Desmond) and one patch on defense (Woodson). Make them players who are sort-of recent but still absolutely legendary. Plus, it solves the future problem of us trotting out 11 players on offense where half of them could be rocking patches.
I guess my final answer would be no, but there's definitely great debate to be had.

I almost want him gone before the Lions pick again. With Sparty 1.0 (Stanton) already gone, I can easily see Mayhew going "Hey how about that Coupons guy?"
EDIT: If this comes true I'll begin packing my bags to Bolivia.

Urban Meyer can time travel? Shit, we might be in trouble after all.

Didn't they run something not too long ago on ESPN about "experts" lamenting they didn't open up a certain player's chest and look at his heart? I hear they both went to the same university too.
The guy is going to be a steal no matter where he goes.

I was standing right next to GERG before the 2010 Wisconsin game ready to go onto the field for halftime. The man was in a classic crouching pose with his hands on his head. He slowly stood up and asked Roh "Was that power? Are they running power?" Roh nodded. GERG went back to his crouching position and starting breathing through his teeth.
I hope to God he was being sarcastic.

Winged helmet and everything. Almost brings a tear to my eye.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||This just makes me feel worse||
This just makes me feel worse about our loss to Cornell. If we get beat, especially if it's an upset, I want to get beat by a team that's going to go far. Ugh. It was still a close game, from what I've heard.
Hats off to Ferris State. Having 5 CCHA teams in the tournament and none making the Frozen Four would have been an embarrassment.

We all know that. What we're worried about is some herpaderp agent strolling around and saying "Hey, I bet you could be a first round talent. Let's take a walk..."
|1 year 50 weeks ago||Agreed. Something must've||
Agreed. Something must've horrendously gone wrong because the band students should never be put in that kind of situation. Criss-crossing with the opposing football team? You're just asking for something like this. It's really hard to tell if he's just jumping (common) or if it was with malicious intent. In an ideal world he would've stopped to make sure the band player he just nailed was all right and maybe helped him off, but who does that anymore?
He won't get 8 years. Maybe a misdemeanor. I'd direct my blame at the event staff to figure out what the hell happened. Did the band start/leave late? Did the football players run onto the field too early? This kind of stuff, especially if it were a rivalry (hell, the MSU players brought the Paul Bunyan trophy over to the MMB and taunted us with it after the game. I was about five feet from the trophy), can't happen. It jeapordizes the safety of the band.

|1 year 51 weeks ago||I was in the basketball band||
I was in the basketball band for the Charlotte, NC trip last year. Watching Stu dunk against Tenneesee when I was about 20-30 feet from him was amazing (likewise, I was about that far away from Morris' last shot against Duke). However, my favorite memory was when we had about an hour to kill after we checked out of our rooms. I started playing Minecraft for no particular reason. About 10 minutes in, I didn't even realize McClimans was standing right behind me with a very confused look on his face. I tried to explain it to him but I'm fairly convinced he just thought I was an extremely strange individual.
TL:DR, I accidentally introduced McClimans to Minecraft last year.
