URI Is Mathematically Eliminated From The A-10 Tournament

So I saw this search come across my stats today:

URI Tournament CMon Man

Not sure if this is a joke or not. I am hoping it was a joke.
A10 Standings 02252013

URI is 3 games back with 3 to go plus St. Bonaventure (the current last team to get in) owns the tie breaker over URI. The Bonnies also only have 3 games left. Mathematically, there is no way for URI to leap over St. Bonaventure.

But the larger question remains, who really was still holding out hope for them to make the tournament this late in the game? I had URI effectively eliminated after losing to SBU (their 6th loss in row during that streak). After going on that 6 game losing streak and looking at their schedule down the final stretch of the season (Xavier, Temple, La Salle, and UMass) was there really anybody who truly believed they still had a chance? If the answer to that is “yes,” then those yahoos are truly, honestly, fucking stupid. The only thing I have to say to them is:
c'mon man
