Given the level of competition in the B10, a #4 seed sounds a bit high. I fully expect a similar situation to last year being played out, where most of the teams in the B10 beat each other up, leading a lots of tournament teams, but very few with records good enough to merit a higher seeding. Michigan has 3 chances that would go a long way toward bringing up their seed outside of B10 play. Winning the pre-season tournament, playing Connecticut at home, and playing Kansas on the road. Take 2 out of 3 of these, and I would then see a 4 seed as probable.
