Pilots Mentioned in Mid Majority Chat

Post by Stonehouse on Fri Jan 30, 2009 11:02 am

For those of you that don't know, The Mid-Majority is a terrific site that focuses solely on mid majors. The writer (Kyle Whelliston) is really good and used to write for ESPN too until he recently wrote an article criticizing them and got fired for it.

Anyway, he used to do a weekly chat on ESPN but now he's doing it on his own site, and one of the questions from today was about Portland. Check it out:

Question:
Is Portland for real? Can this be a three team race? St. Mary's still kept it close (on the road no less) despite losing their star last night, and if Mills is healthy I expect them to win the conference, but could Portland challenge them and that other team?

Answer:
I can't think of any story as unexpected as Portland. John Parenti, my west coast man at BBState, was on them early, saying they could challenge for the league. I was like, huh? But this is a team that has an identity: it makes a ridiculous amount of 3's, and it stops 3's. Not quite at the level of the Big Two, but that would be something if the Pilots made the league semis or snuck into the championship game somehow. Bombs away!

Cool! Nice to see us getting some press!

WHEN the Pilots win the WCC tourney, the league will get three teams in the Dance!

In a tourney 2 things can take an unexpected team far, a big time player (Nik is slowly getting there) and hot 3 point shooting, we are poised to surprise some people for sure the rest of the season.

I love the press, even if it is semi-underground... honestly you get enough there, even the big boys have to pay attention at some point. Haha as long as they don't make any Pilot and aviation metaphors in their writeups I'm happy...

Unless they say something about the Pilots slipping it in.
