Virginia Commonwealth Reportedly 'Under Consideration' For NCAA Tournament At-Large Spot

Earlier today the #3Bids4CAA movement was discussed here at SB Nation D.C., but in light of the, well, enlightened words from CAA Commish Tom "Stop Calling Me Chuck" Yeager, I think it's time to examine a certain blind resume.

Yeager reportedly said that he's been told the NCAA Tournament will consider Virginia Commonwealth as an at-large team if they lose to Old Dominion in the CAA Tournament title game tonight. Via JMU Sports Blog:

CAA Commish Tom Yeager says NCAA told him that #VCU under consideration for at-large bid win or lose. #3Bids4CAA

So, in light of this, let's consider the blind resume of ... let's call them, oh, "Team V." The standard bullet points below explain why Team V is even in the annual "bubble" discussion.

TEAM V

↵
    ↵
  • RPI: 48
  • ↵
  • RECORD: 23-10
  • ↵
  • CONFERENCE RECORD: 14-6
  • ↵
  • STRENGTH OF SCHEDULE: 91
  • ↵
  • RECORD AGAINST RPI TOP 100: 8-7
  • ↵
  • RECORD AGAINST RPI TOP 50: 3-4
  • ↵
  • LAST 10 GAMES: 5-5
  • ↵

Sure, every other Tom, Dick and Utah State has good bullet points behind the "Team V" curtain.  But enough of this nonsense. VCU (who is "Team V," in case it wasn't clear) beat a UCLA team with wins over BYU, Arizona and St. John's. They beat a Wichita State squad that finished second in that mid-major darling of a conference the Missouri Valley. Finally, they beat two conference foes in George Mason and Old Dominion that are at-large locks. I just talked myself into wondering why the Rams are on the bubble at all.
