From the same network that just broke down the entire 2007 Playoffs comes Bracketology in August.

Predicting NCAA Tournament teams before the season is one thing. Projecting match-ups, Last Four In and Last Four Out is just insanity.

This is what you will eventually stumble upon after reading Andy Katz's Michigan preview. Apparently, Joe Lunardi has a lot of time on his hands.

Rest easy Michigan fans - the Wolverines are going to make their first NCAA Tournament in 9 years in 2007 (that's right, start booking the tickets to New Orleans). But there won't be much time for celebration - Michigan is getting a (9) seed, and a tough first-round draw against perennial giant-killer Southern Illinois.

Even worse, if Michigan survives, they'll have to face Big Baby and the Bengals in the Bayou. That seems pretty unfair - it's a good thing we have 6 months to bitch about it. Go Blue.

Joe: Put the bracket down ...
