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: 23-9 (13-5 conference)
RPI: 35
Strength of schedule: 69
Against RPI Top 50: 0-5
Last 10: 8-2

Team B:

Record: 24-6 (12-2 conference)
RPI: 38
Strength of schedule: 137
Against RPI Top 50: 2-3
Last 10: 7-3

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

Team B gets in, Team A hasn't beaten ANYONE decent all season.

Agree. Has to be Team B. Team A hasn't beaten anyone and their record isn't overwhelming. Team A could be a victim of the shrinking bubble.

Team B. Neither necessarily played a great overall schedule, but Team B at least capitalized on a couple of its big games.

Quit padding your schedule, Team A. I'm onto you.
