When the NCAA men's basketball tournament selection committee makes decisions on at-large berths and seeds, it sometimes covers the names of the schools on team reports to focus solely on their bodies of work. It helps committee members make decisions based on who teams played, where they played and how they did, and guarantees that no one is influenced by a school's name. Imagine that there is only one at-large slot left. One of these teams will make the field and be sent to Dayton to compete in the First Four. The question: Which team has a stronger overall body of work? You decide.
Blind Resume: Which Bubble Teams Are Most Deserving of 2021 NCAA Tournament Bid?
The seven biggest snubs in the NCAA Tournament bracket on Selection Sunday
Post a Comment. Friday, March 8, Blind Resumes. Which means the joy of filling out a bracket, bragging about your picks, and then watching way too much the right amount of basketball as you cheer on your teams. But to pick a bracket, the NCAA selection committee must choose who is in and who is out. It is our job as fans to speculate and predict who will be in the field, and who will be left out. The teams that are on the edge of being barely in or barely out of the tournament are considered to be "on the bubble". When fans look at these bubble teams to try and determine who should be in or not, they are often extremely biased towards large or traditional schools.
These teams, whom the committee might also be comparing head-to-head right now, all rest squarely on the bubble. Oftentimes, blind resumes intentionally use just a portion of the data in order to misrepresent a certain team's form—but, there will be no tricks or games here. The purpose of this exercise is to focus solely upon what the computer numbers have to say by stripping away the team names and proverbial eye tests. Well, one comparison doesn't involve bubble teams, but that is for your health.
