The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are a 6 seed, and will wait for the winner of a Michigan vs. Tulsa play-in game to see who they're first-round opponent will be. So who does Notre Dame want to face?
"I don't think Notre Dame fans are allowed by law to cheer for Michigan," said Pete Sampson of Irish Illustrated, "so it would have to be Tulsa. Michigan Notre Dame rivalry would be a good Friday night matchup in Brooklyn, but in terms of cheering? I think that's a little bit strong for anyone in South Bend."
