It is that time of year in Michigan where we pick our school, MSU or Michigan to battle it out in the NCAA tournament.  In recent years, MSU has gone further in the brackets than Michigan but this year has a strong opportunity for both teams to reach the Final Four.  Who do you predict to go further?

Michigan State University has the toughest road to the Final Four between the two schools.  Michigan State is in the 'Region of Death' as some analyst are calling it with so many great team like Duke and Louisville to potentially play.  MSU's head coach Tom Izzo knows how tough things are for Sparty according to Mlive.

"If we get out of the first weekend, we really got two No. 1 seeds because potentially, Duke was a No. 1 seed up until yesterday or the day before."

University of Michigan has the more favorable bracket journey to the Final Four.  U of M will open up tournament against South Dakota State who could provide problems for the Wolverines.  Many analyst have the Wolverines getting to the Final Four and losing to Big Ten foe, Indiana.

Regardless what team you pick, you have to admit, it feels good to have both teams doing well this year.  I know you will be watching each game rooting for or against Michigan or MSU.  I will be rooting for MSU and believe they can win the entire tournament.
