Love the way Lunardi has UofM set up in this hypothetical bracket. Wish it was real. Playing LBSU and then St. Mary's is a "relatively" easy path to the Sweet16. Yes, I'm aware that St. Mary's has a good squad.

I'm expecting more like a 6 seed considering our remaining schedule.  If we can get our shooters hot in March and figure out how to get THJ to be consistently aggressive we might be able to make a run.

Not bad. I want to avoid anything over a 6 and a 4 or 5 seed would be great because a run to the sweet 16 would look much more realistic. I like where this team is this year and next year i believe can be special with the recruiting class we have coming in.

Long Beach State wouldn't be a bad matchup to have in the opening round, but in this bracket, 6 gets Southern Miss (19-3), which I think would be harder but doable, although I would much prefer 4 in this scenario. For some reason, both Colorado State and Cincinnati at 12 (if we were 5 here) would make me cringe a little bit. Besides, you'd have to play the winner of Middle Tennessee  / Wisconsin to get into the Sweet 16. I like the  less stressful LB State - St. Mary's route, although the latter is no slouch.
