Time is ticking for you to fill out your bracket. As Buff fans, surely you have Tad Boyle's squad advancing past Pittsburgh in the round of 64 (ridiculously known as the second round).
However, there doesn't seem to be much love for the No.8-seeded Buffaloes outside the state of Colorado. Many appear to favor No. 9 Pitt to move on and face top-seeded Florida.
Included in that group is Nate Silver's statistically driven website fivethirtyeight.com. The numbers crew over there has worked up a pretty cool bracket graphic projecting the likelihood of each team advancing. Silver's team gives CU just a 28 percent chance to win on Thursday (11:40 a.m., MDT, TBS).
ESPN's Jay Bilas is also on the Pitt bandwagon. Here he breaks down the entire bracket, including an opening loss for the Buffs. (Insider required).
SI.com's Seth Davis doesn't mention the CU-Pitt game in his analysis of the South Region in this video, but he does have Florida going all the way, which means even if the Buffs win Thursday, he doesn't have them advancing past the round of 32.
And finally, if you're looking for more info about the Buffs' opponent, check out Paul Zeise's story from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Like Boyle's team, Jamie Dixon's squad had to overcome the loss of a player (Durand Johnson) to a season-ending torn ACL in order to make the NCAA Tournament.
