Down but not out

Rainy catch

@SOURaiders @SOU_Football @Matt_Retzlaff

The Raiders lost to their football nemesis yesterday. Details here. Matt Retzlaff broke the SOU career receiving-yards record in today’s photo.

Southern Oregon has outgained all seven of their opponents in total yardage. However, SOU has a negative turnover ratio in five games, three of which were losses.

Surprisingly, Massey still has Southern Oregon at #4 in the country. Of course, Massey considers strength of schedule, and SOU has the toughest opponents of anyone in the NAIA. The coaches won’t be as generous in their rankings come Monday. I’m guessing they will drop the Raiders to #12 or #13. With just four games to go, what will this mean?

The Raiders can still win the Frontier Conference if they win out and Western Montana beats Eastern Oregon. That’s also probably the only scenario that will earn the Raiders a home playoff game in the postseason. One more loss and the Raiders will still have a chance at the postseason but no games will be in Ashland.

Massey has the Raiders as a 7-point favorite at College of Idaho Saturday.
