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 two weeks away, it's time to start using the phrases, "Bubble Watch," "Tournament Résumé" and "Auto Bids" on a daily basis. So from today until next Friday, 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: 19-9 (8-7 conference)
RPI: 39
Strength of schedule: 36
Against RPI Top 50: 4-8
Last 10: 4-6

Team B:

Record: 18-12 (8-9 conference)
RPI: 52
Strength of schedule: 8
Against RPI Top 50: 1-7
Last 10: 5-5

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

SoS means nothing if you don't do anything with it. Baylor wins.

Ohio State is team B and they don't deserve to get in.

If one has to, A.

team B's tough schedule don't mean shit if they can't win those games.

team a is the better team, but still probably on the bubble.

Anon. 11:40 is dead-on: B is definitely on the outside looking in, and Team A needs a win or two to feel safe. That bad "last-10" record won't help. They could be a last team out right now.

Gmoney -- I don't think it's OSU. Maybe the 'Cuse?
