I normally post a new bracket on Thursdays however with a midterm and a presentation due at school I don't think I will have the time today. That and there are alot of important bubble games going on tonight that will impact the bracket. But you can help me with the formation of my bracket but giving your input on the Blind Resume Game.

I will post two resumes of potential bubble teams and you give me feedback on which one is better. I will not post the names of the teams, but if you forget it out on your own, thats okay.

TEAM A

Record vs. Div-I: 19-9 (8-7)

RPI 62 SOS 81

Record vs. RPI top 25: 3-2

Record vs. RPI top 50: 4-7

Record vs. RPI top 100: 6-9

Last 12 games: 6-6

Key Wins: RPI ~5, RPI ~15, RPI ~25

Bad Losses: None

TEAM B

Record vs. Div-I: 21-8 (10-4)

RPI 57 SOS 119

Record vs. RPI top 25: 0-3

Record vs. RPI top 50: 2-5

Record vs. RPI top 100: 5-7

Last 12 Games: 10-2

Key Wins: RPI ~30, RPI ~35, Head-to-head against TEAM A

Bad Losses: RPI ~135

I will reveal the names of the teams now.

We had 5 votes for Team A and 2 votes for Team B. I'm not sure if I will put either team in, but I am slightly leaning towards Team A as well. I choose these teams because I thought they both had fairly even resumes but for different reasons. Team A has the better wins, but Team B beat Team A and has played extremely well as of late.

Team A = Penn State

Team B= Rhode Island

I will post more of these as we get closer to Selection Sunday. A new bracket will be posted by tomorrow.

I'm going to go with B.  Team A had a much tougher schedule and flashes of greatness.  However, Team A has been inconsistent, especially lately.  It appears the Top 25 is afraid to play B in a home-and-home arrangement, but they are playing solid hoops right now.

Again being from a BCS conference is not a selection criteria.

Now if you want to say their conference schedule was tougher than I agree with you, but can you say the schedule for a team from the SEC West, for example is really that much tougher than the schedule in the A-10 or the MWC than I don't know about that. BCS conference does not necessarily = tougher schedule

Badgerboy,

You do realize this is not college football, there are no "BCS conferences". The committee looks at who you've beaten, not what conference you're from.

Oh whoops, I always split them up when I post stuff like this, so I just automatically added top 25 and top 50 instead of paying attention.  I still like Team A by a little.

Definitely Team A.  Better wins, and the only things team B has going for them are better conference record and H2H, which the committee doesn't care about (see: last year, Arizona and Arizona State).

I'm glad I don't have to choose this stuff. I think I'm going to go team B. It's hard to tell what to look at the most.
