OBrienSchofieldismyHero's predictions:

Michigan State: Elite Eight (at worst), get stunned by a Cinderella. Eventually, they stop shooting 50% at the worst possible moment.
Ohio State: Elite Eight.
Wisconsin: Sweet Sixteen, before getting chopped to bits by Syracuse, Fab Melo or no Fab Melo. If K-State knocks off #1 'Cuse in the Round of 32, then this gets VERY interesting.
Michigan: Sweet Sixteen. Again, Cal could give them fits in the Round of 32, but if for some reason unknown but to God Michigan ends up drawing USF in the Round of 32, they should beat the snot out of them. I don't have much faith in Temple advancing, but if Fran Dunphy's 1-4 NCAA record doesn't make that clear, not much will...
Indiana: Sweet Sixteen. If they draw Kentucky here, they won't have the advantage of a home crowd. It would take either Kentucky getting ousted in the 2nd round (Round of 32, in other words, because they're NOT losing to a 16 seed. But Josh Pastner is not a wimp in the tournament) or Kentucky putting together an awful showing for IU to get to the Elite Eight.
Purdue: Round of 32. If they survive St. Mary's, their next opponent is KU, and KU's talent level is on par with the teams that squashed Purdue this year, if not above them (MSU and Ohio State).

BT Hoops' predictions:

Indiana: Round of 32
Michigan State: Elite Eight
Ohio State: Elite Eight
Wisconsin: Sweet 16
Michigan: Sweet 16
Purdue: Round of 32
