I could legitimately see any of those first 3 games being upsets. Here's to hoping today gets funky!

Michigan looks really good. Where was this team at the beginning of the season?

Maverick Morgan should have his jersey retired at the Crisler Center. What a turnaround.

They needed Maverick Morgan's motivation

Michigan's bigs have really improved throughout the season. Wagner and Wilson are playing exceptionally.

I guess the Big Ten sucks huh? This always happens every year. 3 in the Sweet 16 already.

Underwood is our Beilein. What an incredible coach. No turnovers, free flow of offense, and look at those adjustments in the face of Louisville taking away their strengths.

Man, he just empowers those kids to have such confidence. Can't believe there are Michigan fans out there that want him gone (info gathered second hand...)

It's coaching man. Beilein is the real thing. Painter is the real thing. Obviously Izzo is Izzo.

Let us all hope the graduation of Bo's stars reveals Greg Gard to not be on that level.

ACC has only UNC and Duke left. Of course they'll probably both make the Final Four and we'll hear how great the conference is.

Couple weeks ago things looked a little shaky, but this late surge seems to have them back on track. Yeah, let's see what he does without Koenig and Hayes.

Gonna be something if B1G can get 4 teams in the Sweet Sixteen. And 3 of those 4 will be in the Midwest if Michigan State upsets Kansas later this afternoon.
