Pilots ranked #3 in Mid-Major poll

Post by onetouchfutbol on Mon Nov 30, 2009 8:51 pm

Okay, so it's not as big of news as the other. But, we have now climbed from 14 to 9 to 3 in the mid-major poll in recent weeks. We are now only behind Gonzaga and Butler:

I'm not sure why Butler hasn't fallen further, but, I'll take it.

Pilot's ranked 10th in Mid-Major Polls even with 3 losses. I don't know if the ranking means much because the Doug Gottlieb (ESPN BB Anouncer) says "Many Mid-Major schools get shut out of the NCAA's" (unless they win their Conference tourney. But it is nice to have something to see after this miserable week.
I guess this recognition would help for the NIT tournament or the other tourneys but at this point in a promising season those tourneys would be somewhat disapointing , grrh... tongue

So Gottelieb might say "they get robbed"?? He would know something about theft so I'll take his word for it... (I couldn't resist)

Hmmm... Any ideas about why St. Mary's got a #1 vote (in parenthesis)?

I wonder where we are in terms of RPI compared to the teams ahead of us in the mid-major rankings. We slid down to #83 in RPI last time a checked; out of the top 64 teams...
