Judging by some of the disagreement among bracketologists over Colorado State's NCAA tournament worthiness, the Rams may prove a tough case for the selection committee come Selection Sunday. ESPN's Joe Lunardi has the Rams out of the tournament in his latest bracket projection, while CBS's Jerry Palm has Colorado State as one of the last four teams in the field.
But that's just another indicator of the tenuous nature of Colorado State's current position. The Rams can strengthen their argument with a win over UNLV on Wednesday; failing that, a good run in the Mountain West Conference tournament might be necessary for a bid.
