After a hard-fought comeback, the Michigan softball team lost to Tennessee, 5-3 today. Game 2 is set for tomorrow, with a loss eliminating Michigan from the NCAA Tournament. Obviously, there is no need to hit the panic button - Michigan lost Game 1 of the Championship series with UCLA last year before rallying to win the title.

But let me take this opportunity to point out how Michigan got screwed in the seeding. Seeded 9th enterting the tournament, the Wolverines have to go through Knoxville to get to Oklahoma City. Now, somehow Northwestern is a No. 4 seed.

Someone tell me that how that works.

Their records are almost identical (Michigan 43-13, Northwestern 45-13) and Michigan just went into Evanston and crushed the Wildcats for the Big Ten Tournament title. Yet, it is Northwestern with the home-field advantage all the way to the WCWS?

"Respect the 'M', bitches..."
