Don't care what the computer numbers are, if UC is not good enough to win 3 of these last 5, they are not good enough to deserve a bid anyways.
I look at Seton Hall as an elimination game. Harkens back a little to 2006.
I cannot agree that UC is where they should be, but I do agree they are in position where they could play themselves right in. Losing to Presbyterian and losing at home to St Johns to me set UC back more than they should have been set back.
The losses to Marshall and Rutgers sucked, but to me were more excusable.
I don't think UC has any elimination games at this point, BUT if they lose to Seton Hall they may very well need to sweep Marquette/Louisville at home to get in (or make a deep Big East tournament run). Seton Hall is an enormous game.
2/3 in the Seton Hall/Louisville/Marquette stretch is necessary, so I wouldn't say this is an elimination game but its certainly the most winnable of the 3.
