    Selection Sunday show goes live on CBS at 3:30 MT.

    Buffs projected by most bracketologists as a 7 or 8 seed.

    Pac-12 expected to receive 7 bids with conventional wisdom on seeding:

    Oregon 1-2
    Utah 2-4
    Cal 4-6
    Zona 4-6
    CU 7-9
    USC 8-11
    OSU 9-11

    Some big questions on the bubble and what the committee will value today. Is it a big day for the mid-majors with St. Mary's, Valpo, Wichita State, Monmouth and SDSU all waiting anxiously?

    Which team will get the rest of the #1 seeds after Kansas?

    Where will CU fans be traveling?

    Who will win the Allbuffs bracket challenge this year? https://www.allbuffs.com/threads/official-allbuffs-ncaa-bracket-challenge.115289/

    What the Buffs don't want to see in the draw:

    Team that puts a lot of pressure on the guards and backs it up with shot blockers in the paint.

    What we want to see is a 3pt shooting team that's not especially bouncy (BYU type squad).

    I would love to see a post oriented team with a shooting point guard that can't drive especially well.

    CBS has a live feed to the CU team for instant reaction and probably a Tad interview. Good pub!

    I hope they didn't put a camera on us thinking we're a bubble team - especially after Sir Charles saying the Pac 12 was an underrated conference.

    Please, Dance Gods, don't give CU a 7-seed in Michigan State's region.

    Committee looks like it's valuing RPI and the Power 5 a lot based on these first selections.

    1 Kansas
    2 Oregon
    3 Virginia
    5 North Carolina (4 Villanova, Big East, got jumped)

    Nervous. I hope Kenny Smith is right and the NCAA has a high value on the Pac.

    I'm reading it as a good sign that the Committee showed some Pac-12 love with the 1 seeds.

    8 seed in the South, playing UConn for the right to play Kansas.

    Well, on the positive side CU will make a lot of headlines if it gets to the Sweet 16. :eek::D
