MBB: Bracketology Update

Submitted by LS And Play on January 30th, 2017 at 11:39 PM

In the most recent update on the Bracket Matrix (1/30), Michigan is currently one of the last 4 in the field as an 11 seed. 

ESPN, CBS, and SI all have Michigan as one of their last 4 teams in the field as well. 

Obviously, the next 7 days are critical for the team. 2-0 against OSU and MSU could give us a little bit of breathing room going into the last 7 conference games. 1-1 likely leaves Michigan in a similar position as they are today. 0-2 means we're probably finished. 

Other notes from the Bracket Matrix:

- The B1G gets 8 teams in the field, with one team occupying each seed line from 4-11. 

-Wisconsin is a 4 seed, Maryland a 5 seed, Purdue a 6 seed, NW a 7 seed, Minnesota an 8 seed, IU a 9 seed, and MSU is a 10 seed. 

-Not sure why Minnesota is so comfortably in the tournament right now; they are 3-6 in the conference and in absolute freefall, having lost 5 straight.

The win that turned around the 2010-11 season (we had been 11-9 overall and 1-6 in B1G play entering the game).  Over the next 3 1/2 years we were the best team in the conference.

Hi guys, thought I would get this up early so the discussion can begin. Pretty important game in the grand scheme of things. I really, really hate Indiana Basketball, ever since the early 70's when I started following M Sports.

I sure hope Jim and John Harbaugh don't show up at the game wearing Hoosier Gear like last season, I haven't noticed Crean doing anything like that for his brother-in-law. 

Hope we can beat these guys like we did in the B1G Tourney last year, that was fun, Go Blue!!!
