Massey dropped SOU from a tie for second to number three today. The coaches aren’t likely to agree come Monday’s new poll. I’m guessing the new coaches’ poll will look something like this:
1) Morningside
2) Marian
3) Northwestern
4) Southern Oregon

Northwestern has yet to play any decent teams and will likely get creamed by Morningside on 10/20. St. Francis would have moved ahead of the Raiders, but they lost again and will likely drop out of the top five with two in the loss column.

Rocky earned a top five spot on Massey but won’t crack the coaches’ top ten. Southern Oregon welcomes Eastern Oregon for homecoming this Saturday. EOU may make the coaches top 25 come Monday. Massey has them at #16. Massey gives the Raiders a 91% chance of winning and picks SOU by 19 over the Mountaineers.

New rankings and poll

Massey was impressed with Marian’s win; they jumped three spots to #1. Morningside beat Hastings 65-0, putting them in a two-way tie with the idle Raiders for the #2 ranking. Although Rocky Mountain also had a bye week, Massey moved them up a spot to #7, meaning #2 will be traveling to play at #7 this Saturday. Massey gives the Raiders an 80% chance of winning and picks SOU by 11 points.

The new 2018 NAIA Football Coaches’ Top 25 Poll came out today. My prediction from Saturday was nearly correct. SOU did move up to #2. St. Francis came in it at #5 instead of #4. The Raiders received two first place votes, not enough to overcome Morningside’s 13. The coaches are predictable–move up so long as someone above you suffers a defeat, drop if you lose even if it was to a great team. Therefore, preseason rankings mean a lot in NAIA football. That hurt SOU last year, and may hurt Marian this year. If Marian and SOU win out, expect to see them in Ashland on December 1.

Busy weekend

As predicted yesterday, the Raiders didn’t move in today’s poll.

New NAIA football rankings

EOU beat Western Montana today. Not much changed with Massey Ratings as SOU stayed put at #5. Massey was more impressed with Morningside’s win than Montana Tech’s victory over lowly Montana Northern so Montana Tech slid to #4 according to Massey.

Just a point of clarification… Several people said last week after this post that Massey doesn’t mean anything. It is true that Massey doesn’t mean anything in terms of who goes to the postseason or who gets home games in the postseason, but Massey means much more than the coaches’ poll in terms of predicting who will win games as I’ve documented many times over the years.

So what rankings do count? The extremely biased and inaccurate coaches’ poll is the only one that counts in the NAIA’s eyes. The first one comes out tomorrow (Monday, September 11). Based on what the coaches normally do, I believe Montana Tech will end up #5, Eastern Oregon will be ranked somewhere between #11 and #15, SOU will be somewhere between #14 and #18, and Western Montana will drop to somewhere around #20 or #21.

The Raiders will travel to Western Montana for next Saturday’s game. Massey has Southern Oregon as a 3-point favorite.

Update: How did I do?
