Blind Résumé

It’s March! Fuck yeah! Hoops, baseball, NFL Draft talk…we’re exiting one of the worst stages of the sports year and entering one of the best. We’re finally getting into college hoops and the bubble talks; it took about a month longer than normal. Who’s gonna dance? Who are the last four out?! With Selection Sunday less than a week away, it’s time to start using the phrases, “Bubble Watch,” “Tournament Résumé” and “Auto Bids” on a daily basis. So for the next week, we’ll be playing Blind Résumé. We’ll present two bubble teams’ résumés and your job is simple: in the comments, say which team deserves to get in and which one doesn’t. (If you think both are in — or out — suggest who you view as the better team). You might know who these teams are, but don’t spoil it for the rest of us. Since this is one of those blind item things, check back at 3 p.m. Pacific each day as we’ll post the true identities in the comments.

Team A:

Record: 21-9 (7-9 conference)
RPI: 42
Strength of schedule: 60
Against RPI Top 50: 5-4
Last 10: 5-5

Team B:

Record: 17-13 (8-10 conference)
RPI: 31
Strength of schedule: 2

Against RPI Top 50: 5-7
Last 10: 3-7

Play the part of a committee member in the comments. Who dances?

  1. Team A goes. Cause I hate team B.

  2. Team B is barely .500, if it went on a run in a post season tourney and got up to 20 wins it’s in, but for now Team A.

  3. Neither, if you can’t get to .500 in your own conference, you should be playing in the NIT.

  4. I take Team B. If they’re willing to play such a difficult schedule, they figure to give a good show in the dance…maybe knock off a 4 or a 5 in the first round.

    They should add a “times torched” category.

  5. RPI doesn’t mean shit. Nor does SOS. There should be no reward for LOSING to good teams. Neither is in with sub-.500 conference records, but I bet at least one of them gets in.

  6. Only 4 teams with losing conference records have gotten a bid in the last decade.

  7. a little early today…

    team a is Mississippi
    team b is Arizona

    neither should be in, but arizona’s blowing the right people b/c just about everyone is saying they’re in. with that record, it’d be nearly criminal. oregon has just as much of a case as the ‘cats.
