Tony Natoci is back this year to provide regular bracket updates as we lead up to the NCAA Tournament. Natoci publishes his own bracket at Heartbreak City and will outline where Michigan stands in current bracketology models, both in his own bracket and notable national brackets, along with updates and insights about the process, key bubble games to watch, and more.
For Michigan fans, the last 24 to 36 hours (depending on how often you happen to check Twitter) have been, to say the least, less than ideal. The Wolverines suffered a frustrating, heartbreaking, ultimately inconsequential loss to Ohio State yesterday afternoon, but of course the real blow came before the game, when Isaiah Livers was ruled out indefinitely due to a stress injury in his right foot.
Despite the frustration of losing Livers and losing in the Big Ten Tournament semifinals, Michigan is still on track to secure a No. 1 seed later today. Here’s the latest on the brackets, the bubble and today’s Selection Show (CBS).
