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: 19-12 (10-8 conference)
RPI: 48
Strength of schedule: 21
Against RPI Top 50: 3-9
Last 10: 4-6

Team B:

Record: 21-10 (8-8 conference)
RPI: 65
Strength of schedule: 85
Against RPI Top 50: 2-8
Last 10: 3-7

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

Team A is in, all we ever hear is you are rewarded for playing a tough schedule well they have it with #21 and RPI in the 40's. Team B won 20+ games but the RPI is 65 and schedule in the 80's, no contest.

I would say neither. They both sucked against good teams. And they have both been awful down the stretch. Enjoy the NIT.

Team A is in, but probably will have to play well in a conference tournament.

Team B is NIT.

Both SHOULD be NIT especially after the Bubble shrunk by 2 teams yesterday. A sub-500 record over your last 10 should have some weight, especially when nothing else on the profile is all-that impressive.
