[Join LetsGoNova.com for a live blog of the selection show at 6 p.m. today.]

Selection Sunday revolves around the selection show, which starts at 6 p.m. (Villanova time) on CBS.

The nature of the selection show is that the brackets get revealed slowly, agonizingly, region-by-region, in between breathless commentary and lucrative commercial breaks.

As such, teams on the very edge of the bubble, like, say, Villanova, will want to know whether things are going their way even before they see their names listed.

Here is a brief guide to the selection show.

1. Bubble teams it's OK to see in the brackets: These teams already should be in.
  • Texas A&M
  • Kansas State
  • Baylor
  • St. Joseph's
  • South Alabama
  • Miami

2. Legitimate bubble competition: The best five profiles left, with four three to five spots available, depending on Wisconsin-Illinois and Arkansas-Georgia.
  • Arizona
  • Kentucky
  • Villanova
  • Oregon
  • Illinois State

3. Names Villanova fans do NOT want to see under any circumstances: If you see one of these teams, you know one of the legitimate bubble teams got left out.
  • Georgia (auto-bid)
  • Illinois (out)
  • Arizona State
  • VCU
  • Dayton
  • UMass
  • Virginia Tech
  • Ohio State
  • Mississippi
  • Syracuse
