NCAA 2011 Bracket: Colorado Snubbed Thanks to Weak Nonconference Schedule
NCAA 2011 Bracket Doesn't Include The Exciting Colorado Buffs
Every year, it seems as if the selection committee drops the ball on at least one Major Conference team.
Say hello to Colorado and a respectable 21-13 record, including three wins over Big 12 foe Kansas State and a win over then No. 5 Texas.
The Buffs did enough during the regular season to play themselves off the bubble in the eyes of most experts, including CBS' Seth Davis.
Davis said on the CBS Selection Show Sunday evening that he didn't even have Colorado among the last four teams making the field.
In other words, just about everyone thought they were a lock.
Looking beyond the impressive conference wins over other NCAA Tournament teams, the Buffaloes played one of the worst nonconference schedules in the country this season.
A blowout loss to Harvard, another team considered to be a snub, and a loss to San Francisco probably were enough to keep Colorado out of the dance.
If you're going to play a soft pre-conference schedule, running the table is a must.
Led by sensational guard Alec Burks, Colorado figures to makes a serious run at the NIT and build momentum heading into next season.
