The Bracket Matrix is a wonderful resource that scours the web for all of the reputable sites that produce NCAA tournament projections. Their first incarnation has 28 websites listed and that is a number that will likely grow as the season goes on. These sites are all brackets that were completed on Nov. 8 so before a team has played a game, yet there were so few upsets over the first weekend not much would change, with the exception of a seed line here or there.
The Mountain West has four teams listed in the bracket and two that are being considered. Seeing six is a shock to me but here are where the Mountain West teams stand in the initial Matrix.
New Mexico's average seeding is 5.04 with a high of three and a low of seven.
Boise State's average seeding is 9.22 with a high six and a low of 12.
UNLV's average seeding is a 9.47 with a high of a seven but they are not seeded in six of the ballots.
San Diego State's average seeding is a 10.5 with a high of five but they were not seeded in seven of 23 ballots.
Wyoming gets picked in an 11-seed in one bracket and Utah State earned a 12-seed in two ballots.
