    NCAA Nitty Gritty Tournament Game (#4)

    Time for another of game for you to choose which team you think deserves the NCAA tournament spot. Both of these teams are bubble teams and one could easily be left out come selection Sunday, who do you think deserves the shot?

    Please do not try and guess or give away either team's name. I will provide this when enough votes have been given and I decide to end this poll and start another.


    Team 1

    Record: 19-6
    Non-Conf: 10-3
    Road: 6-2
    Neutral: 3-1

    RPI: 47
    SOS: 88
    vs 1-25: 1-4
    vs 1-50: 1-4
    vs 1-100: 6-4
    vs Sub-100: 13-2



    Team 2

    Record: 18-7
    Non-Conf: 11-4
    Road: 4-2
    Neutral: 2-1

    RPI: 51
    SOS: 56
    vs 1-25: 0-3
    vs 1-50: 2-5
    vs 1-100: 4-5
    vs Sub-100: 14-2


    For reference, here is Iowa State's resume as of Feb. 14:

    Record: 18-8
    Non-Conf: 10-3
    Road: 3-6
    Neutral: 2-0

    RPI: 38
    SOS: 50
    vs 1-25: 1-4
    vs 1-50: 2-5
    vs 1-100: 3-6
    vs Sub-100: 15-2

    Coin flip. If gun were at my head, I'd take team 2 just for how well they are doing in conference play.

    With it being a weekday I may leave this poll going longer than just 24 hours like I have with the previous ones, just keep the votes and comments coming.

    With the exception of the SOS disparity, nearly everything else favors Team 1.

    Counterintuitive Hunch: Team 2 is widely seen as a tournament lock, and Team 1 is in precarious bubble zone.

    The conference of one team didn't take long to guess; didn't deduce the other immediately.

    I won't reveal which is which, to avoid Spoiler Alert.

    Re: NCAA Nitty Gritty Tournament Game (#4)

    I think both of these teams should be in, but if I had to take one I'd take team one. 5-0 against RPI 51-100 is more than good enough to get in the tourney.

    team 2 is barely in if it ended today...I actually had trouble guessing the teams as team 2 looked like somebody familiar at first.

    Both are bubble teams and I do think they will both get in though.

    Team 1 due to having a top 25 win.

    Re: NCAA Nitty Gritty Tournament Game (#4)

    For reference could you put up ISU's info? Even if it's after the poll is over it would be interesting.

    Not a bad idea, I will go ahead and put up Iowa State's resume as a reference in the original post.

    Re: NCAA Nitty Gritty Tournament Game (#4)

    Back from a trip up to Iowa for the State Wrestling Tournament and the Oklahoma game! Here are the final results for this one, and I'll have another one up later this morning to keep this going...

    Final Voting Results

    Team 1: 36
    Team 2: 5


    Team 1: BYU
    Team 2: North Carolina State


    I'm surprised at the lopsided voting for this one given the two teams were so even in most aspects of their resume.

    Re: NCAA Nitty Gritty Tournament Game (#4)

    I got in too late for this one, but tried it before I checked the answer.

    It was a coin flip to me. I didn't like either one as a solid tournament team -- I would've voted #1 based on the single top-25 win, but didn't like the weak SOS.
