What is on an NCAA team sheet?

There was some confusion about what I wrote about on Monday. There were two versions of the team sheets. The one that the selection committee has been using is no longer publicly available, so I thought the other one had replaced it. It was locked down for the committee’s view. I apologize for the confusion.

Conference record and placement do not appear on the committee team sheets and the rankings in five non-NCAA metrics do appear on the team sheets. For a couple of decades, conference record and placement have not been criteria. The committee doesn’t consider anything about a team’s conference during the process. The name of the conference is not included in the team sheets.

The other metrics have been on the team sheets for a while, but were being discussed by the committee during deliberations before they were officially added to the sheet.

The NCAA provided an example of the information on the team sheets the selection committee uses.

The NET and other rankings are at the top of the line. These aren’t used to make decisions. The committee doesn’t compare the NET rankings of a couple of teams to determine which should be selected. If the information in the more important parts of the resume doesn’t match up with the rankings, a discussion will probably take place.

The answer is usually margin of victory. That is a significant factor in some form or fashion. Most of the others are results-oriented. SOR could be as well. The selection committee doesn’t generally reward margin of victory. If a team is counting on a good ranking alone to get into the tournament, it will be disappointed.

There is a box below the rankings. The strength of schedule rankings is important, but the road record is as well. The strength of a team’s schedule is one of the things being judged. It’s not unusual for a team on the bubble to be left out of the tournament because of a poor non-conference schedule.

The committee wants to see that teams can perform well away from home. The neutral site games are not listed in that box.

The box below that has the record in those games on it. This is a good starting point for comparing teams. The devil is in the details.

The most important part of a team’s resume is the actual games and results. This is where the comparisons can be made between the different opponents. The Quad 1 list is divided into two parts. The Quad 2 box has a division as well, but there are no games in the second part of Q2, so no line is drawn. Quads 3 and 4 are not the same.

This will probably be the last time you see a team sheet this season.

Bubble Watch will make its debut on Tuesday. I believe that teams on the bubble are affected by games on a daily basis. The bubble is fairly large this time of year, and teams will go on and off of it as we progress towards Selection Sunday.
