UNC Basketball: Projecting Tar Heels' Path to 2012 NCAA Championship

I've already given you the reasons North Carolina is destined to win it all. Now I will map out the Tar Heels' path through the gauntlet that is the 2012 NCAA Tournament.

Though the Midwest region appears to be fairly straight-forward in comparison to the rest of the NCAA tournament bracket, there will be a few surprises. I'm a big fan of the underdog, but I don't see any making it to the Sweet 16 from the Midwest.

There is sure to be a massive hike in ratings with the final three matchups I have laid out for UNC. They will be tough, but they will be what makes North Carolina strong enough mentally to dance in confetti and cut down the nets for the sixth time—the third with Roy Williams at the helm.

I can't predict health, so for the sake of this article we will assume John Henson will be healthy for the entire tournament.

But before I give it all away, let's go ahead and embark on this journey through the Madness of March.

Feel free to print out a 2012 NCAA Tournament bracket and follow along.
