The 2012 NCAA Tournament might not be a long-term spot for the Colorado Buffaloes and the Colorado St. Rams this year -- well, that is if we believe SB Nation's Bill Connelly and his NCAA Bracket Predictions. He has both teams dropping out in their first games, the Buffs to the UNLV Rebels and the Rams to the Murray St. Racers.

The Rams merit a paragraph from Connelly to go over how overrated the Rams are this season. Those are all very valid points about the road schedule and the strength of schedule relying on the contest against the Duke Blue Devils. But he doesn't completely write the Rams off:

Of course, in Murray State, they drew the 11th-best team in the region (according to Pomeroy), so they may advance to the Round of 32 regardless.

So overrated, the Rams are underrated. Is that how it works? Time for the Rams to show why they deserve respect.
