Now it starts to get serious for the Michigan Wolverines.
Wofford is gone after being swept away rather easily. But Michigan has a real opponent in the round of 32. The Texas Longhorns may not be among the elite teams in the nation, but head coach Rick Barnes has a talented unit that will push the Wolverines hard.
Michigan should win this game and advance to the Sweet 16. There is a certain indomitable characteristic that the Wolverines showed in last year's NCAA tournament when they reached the Final Four and they displayed it again this year.
However, they are going to have to win the physical battle against a Texas team that is more than capable of coming up with the upset if John Beilein does not have Michigan in top form.
