Tough matchup for me. You know Im from Michigan, but what you dont know is that I have a lot of family in Maine since thats where my father is from. Ive been to Maine at least 20 times, and I absolutely love it. MI and Maine are actually quite similar in a lot of ways, but I have to say Maine is about 20 years behind in a lot of ways too - which could be a good thing or bad thing depending on what you prefer.

Jeez, Maine is proving to be a real dark horse. I could sort of see the upset over Kentucky but if they take down Michigan too I'll be impressed.

Tough one, Michigan is also pretty boring although I've never been to Detroit. I'll go with Maine. I have an east coast bias for some reason for this tourney.

I've got to say that a lobster trap beats out Michigan Stadium on game day.
