Think you have what it takes to hash out a fair 68-team bracket? Convinced the Selection Committee has it easy? Find out for yourself as Busting Brackets invites you into the selection room for a simulated look at the challenges the ten-member panel confronts on a daily basis.

Next up on the agenda: pinpointing No.1 seeds. Parse the résumés of the two teams below, then determine yourself which contender is more deserving of a No. 1 seed. Hint: these two schools play in the same conference.

Consistent with war room protocol, Busting Brackets has concealed the identities of the teams to eliminate empirical bias and prejudice. You can put a name to a résumé on the next page, where we unveil the two clubs. Even if you can infer the identities of the two schools without having to peek, try to base your decision upon the portfolios, not any preconceived notions you may have about each team.
