After hours of scouring the Internet to follow how forecasts are envisioning Colorado's place in the NCAA basketball bracket, one site has emerged as the most informative.
It's The Bracket Project's Bracket Matrix 2012, which compiles more than 60 projected brackets from sources around the country.
Click to it and you'll find Colorado as most likely a No. 13 seed, with Colorado State as a No. 11.
CU thus would face a No. 4 seed in the first round, and the consensus there offers four tough opponents: Louisville, Wisconsin, Indiana and Florida State. Louisville just wrapped up the Big East tournament title, while Florida State knocked off Duke on Saturday and is playing North Carolina today for the Atlantic Coast tourney championship.
Colorado State, as a No. 11, would face a No. 6 seed in the first round. The consensus No. 6 group includes New Mexico, Florida, Creighton and Nevada-Las Vegas.
