From @OrionSang front page Bracket Watch article: "Most recent bracket projections have Michigan pushing toward a potential 6 seed, but the fact that the Big Ten Tournament championship will finish minutes before the Selection Show (which producers assure us will feature the actual brackets sooner than later) means that it might be too late."
I would hope the committee's incompetence doesn't extend this far, but it is entirely possible. I dont see how we wouldn't be a 6 seed, if we win today. The most impressive stat to our resume, at that point, might be the 6-0 neutral site record, with wins against SMU, Marquette, Purdue, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. Add in one elite team (if you dont count SMU), and that looks like a pretty daunting NCAA stretch, hypothetically.
