Selection Sunday 2012 Open Thread: Will Mountain West Get Four Teams In?

New, 3 comments

The 2012 NCAA Tournament Selection Sunday show is today and begins at 6 p.m. ET on CBS with a a follow-up show, NCAA Hardcore Brackets, on truTV at 7 p.m. ET.

What we know is that at least three Mountain West teams are getting in with New Mexico earning the aut-bid after defeating San Diego State who also is in the tournament, UNLV is in and likely Colorado State.

Colorado State got a much needed win against TCU and should be in, but with the Colorado Buffaloes winning the Pac-12 tournament there could be a bubble team pushed out. Well, unless the Pac-12 only gets one team in. However, teams like Seton Hall, Drexel and BYU are likely to be pushed out before Colorado State.

Lets now take a look at some of the latest bracketology projections.
