They’re in the dance, but did they land in the right spot?

NCAA Basketball: Big Ten Conference Tournament-Michigan State vs Michigan Nicole Sweet-USA TODAY Sports

The Michigan Wolverines basketball team will be a No. 3 seed in the West Region, taking on the Montana Grizzlies in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Thursday.

While Michigan as a No. 3 seed makes sense, the overall theme among pundits is that they believe Michigan should have landed where Michigan State did, in the Midwest Region where they’ll play their first round game in Detroit.

We compiled some reactions from various people you may recognize.

Enjoy and discuss.
