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.
