Auburn Hills/Indianapolis regional. Louisville as the 2 in their region.

I would absolutely love it if these projections stayed the course til March. Obviously Louisville scares me but other then that I love it. I'll take my chances and hope L'ville goes down before the elite 8.
That would be a very good bracket for Michigan
My final four would be Duke vs. Arizona and Indiana vs. Michigan. Michigan - Duke final.
Michigan will probably drop in early February during that insane stretch (@ Indiana, OSU, @ Wis, @MSU), but the schedule sets up nicely for a big run at the end, especially if Michigan can do decently in the Big Ten Tournament. They get to play a bunch of quality teams at the end of the schedule at home, which will do a lot to boost their hype and resume. Of course, a lot can change before March, but the Big Ten is going to get at least one top seed and Michigan certainly has to be the odds on favorite to get one.

As projected it sets up for a likely match of Louisville vs Butler and the winner taking on Michigan...in Indianapolis. Butler playing in Indianapolis with a chance to go to the final four is frightening no matter how much more talent Michigan has. I rather play Louisville. Those dawgs got some kind of voodoo majic mojo working.
If we were to win the NC this year. I would absolutely love for it to be against Duke.
The #1 seed Kansas...their bracket would be an absolute war. That bracket is so loaded. We may just have a Tremendous Three cause nobody will make it out alive of that one.
"Those Who Stay...Will be Champions"
Holy crap Kansas' bracket is an absolute gauntlet. Indiana would come out of that, IMO.
My guess is that no matter what, the Big 10 champion will probably get a #1 seed. I can see a scenario where that is not true, but more than likely.
No kidding. And yeah, please let Michigan have that bracket. You have to face someone tough at some point to win, but it would be nice to not face a team (possibly) that legitimately scares me until the elite 8.
Since the brackets will change a lot from now until March Madness, there's little value in discussing these projections.
And Joe Lunardi is considered something of a joke in basketball circles. That he has a job as ESPN's "resident bracketologist" makes him a punchline.
