The first session of SB Nation's 2012 Bracketology has been released, but just one team from the Denver region makes the cut.

The first iteration of SB Nation's 2012 Bracketology has been released and out of the Denver region, just the Pac-12's Colorado Buffalo's makes the cut. In the first edition, Chris Dobbertean of SB Nation has Colorado as a No. 12 seed in the tournament in the South bracket, taking on No. 5 Michigan Wolverines. Dobbertean explains how Colorado gets into the tournament:

You'll likely notice that the conference that's struggled the most since November 7th is America's punching bag, the Pac-12, which went from five teams in that projection to a mere two now‒and Colorado is only in as the auto bid.

It's still earlier in January however, and there is still a chance teams can improve and change their projected seeding.
