South Florida is ahead of seton hall, there's no way around it. My brother is positive and naive like you too when it come's to seton hall and where they stand. You like to pretend that wins against WVU and St. Joe's count as 'quality wins" and I think that's silly. West Virginia can't possibly count as a good win...wvu can very well finish the sesaon with 14 losses. It doesn't matter where the rpi is...at the end of the day WVU has lost 14 ball games...i dont cant see how that team can be counted as a "quality win". I understand that they played a tough schedule which is why they have so many losses, but still, they are going to be an under .500 big east team with 14 losses. It's not a meaningless loss, but its certainly not up there with "quality". Same goes for St. Joseph's.
Yes...South florida losing ot penn state, odu and auburn is a lot worse than just rutgers.... but hahaha how do you not include "cincinnati" in quality wins, but include st joe's and wvu for seton hall? Take out the RPI, cincinnati has beaten a handfull of great teams and are right now cruising into the tournament.
A win over depaul can't possibly be enough. Since January 10th they've beaten Georgetown at home...and that's it. In that stretch they have managed to also lose to rutgers and nova. If they lose their first game in the tournament to WVU or UCONN, they have NO shot at going.
Historically, that is incorrect...whether you like it or not (and I hate the impact RPI has on the committee sometimes). I'm as cynical as anyone, but a win over DePaul will get them in. St. Joe's and VCU are still quality wins, just like Cincinnati, Louisville, and Seton Hall are for South Florida. They're both going to be in. The bubble is awful. You know how the committee works by now.
