Pilots' nosedive

I knew LSU-Shreveport would have a difficult time winning the NAIA national championship if only for the fact that it is a 32-team tournament played over about a seven-day period.

But never, and I mean never, did I expect the Pilots to bow out in the first round as the No. 2 seed in the tournament.

Yes, the Pilots had a great season winning the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference championship and tournament and reaching No. 1 in the NAIA poll.

But there is no way to sugar coat the Kansas City collapse.

It's like Duke losing in the second round of the NCAA Tourney ... except the Pilot's weren't the Duke of NAIA.
The rankings are truly meaningless -- obviously -- in NAIA. Due to lack of television coverage, there is no way to tell one team from another like Division-I.
LSUS looks like it should have been about No. 17. To be nice.
