Michigan would have loved to have gotten MSU's spot, a #3 seed and two games in Detroit Rock City. Remember, when Michigan got the Outback Bowl Bid over the better record MSU? Well, that just happened to Michigan. It didn't matter that Michigan won the Big Ten Tournament and MSU twice, MSU had the better record and the committee gave them the home cooking.
Michigan now has to go on the road to Wichita, Kansas and play a Montana team as a 3 seed in the West. This bracket could set up a re-match with North Carolina in the sweet 16.
