PILOTS RANKED #25!!!

Post by Stonehouse on Mon Nov 30, 2009 10:43 am

In the AP Poll:

http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/rankings

AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME!!!

As excited as I am, I had to take a moment and think about what a journey it's been... so many disappointments, seemingly endless years of futility, and now we are truly among the best. What a wonderful accomplishment for the staff and the team... I am so proud of them and what they have done on The Bluff. Words can't really describe the mix of emotions I'm feeling right now... what a wonderful day to be a Pilot fan.

This is so awesome, Stonehouse put it perfectly. I can only imaging what it's like being a student right now with a ranked bball team.
What % of the student body is on a nationally ranked D1 team?

CONGRATULATIONS to the Pilots on their Top 25 ranking in the AP Poll. Not only richly deserved, but obviously richly rewarding for the UP faithful.

Keep it rolling !!!

When I first saw the news I was like this: Shocked. Then I was like this: cheers. And then I was like this: Crying or Very sad, as I remembered times like the three-year stretch where my family bought the six-game ticket package - and I never saw the Pilots win a single game. How far we've come. What a ride this season is going to be.

That does it. Screw history papers - I'm coming up for the PSU game on Wednesday. I'm going to watch a ranked Pilots team play in the Chiles Center - for the first time ever!!!

cheers

Seems like it might be a good time for Lunardi to come up with a revision to "Bracketology".

After all these years!!!!!!!!!!! TO BE RANKED IN THE TOP 25 rimshot Reveno is by far the best coach the Pilots have ever had. Negratti, Turner, Etzel(for 2 years) Avina, Steele, Chavez and Mr. Glasses Holton. Hopefully the University can make the appropriate committment to keep him here on the Bluff. Yahoo!

CONGRATS PILOTS! I cannot wait to get back, more than ever and I even asked Athletics to put aside a ticket for me for the Gonzaga game, just like Ship11, so we both can enjoy the PurplePride when we return!

BEAT PSU! Very Happy

Did I hear the radio correctly that this is the first AP ranking in fifty years?

2009 - 1959 = 50

Portland ends drought in AP poll; Florida debuts at 13

Nov. 30, 2009
CBSSports.com wire reports

Only once before has the Associated Press college basketball poll changed as much as it did Monday.

Only once before has Portland been in the Top 25.

The Pilots were among a record-tying seven teams to move into the rankings Monday, their first appearance in the poll since February 1959.

http://www.cbssports.com/collegebasketball/story/12596766/florida-enters-ap-poll-at-13-portland-ends-drought


maybe 50 2/3 years, but that doesn't scan so well.

I remember being something like 10-0 in Jack Avina's tenure, and Sports Illustrated ranking UP third best in the West. But I guess an AP ranking didn't go with that.

Nice.

That said, I hope we can knock off a top 25 team on Wednesday.

Congrats Pilots and fans.

You guys played a great tournament, even when you weren't shooting particularly well.

Feed Smeldeurs as much as possible. He is good. Inside out. Got it?

Should be a fun year for a bunch of us.

I've done nothing but smile all day since I checked the rankings this morning. I've been going to games regularly since before I can remember (over twenty years) and all those hard years of bitter disappointment make this recognition of our ascent into relevancy all the more sweet. I can't wait to see our nationally ranked team take the floor on Wednesday. Awesome!

I thought I had heard that our last ranking was 1957 in the AP by the ESPN announcers and that we had never been ranked by an ESPN poll...but, then again ESPN came with the beginning of cable tv several years later. Haha... In any case, CONGRATS UP!

GO PILOTS!
