Morning surprise

I went to bed at this point:

And woke up to this news.

Volleyball earned SOU 73 points with a 5th place finish

Unfortunately, SOU has little chance of ever winning the NAIA Directors’ Cup for an entire year given the way the points are calculated. Standings are based on a school’s best 13 teams. The points are not weighted for things like number of sports or number of teams competing in a given sport. Therefore, schools with more teams and more teams in lower-participation sports (golf, tennis, swimming, cheer, dance, etc.) will score higher when all is said and done. If proper weighting was done (more points for higher-participation sports like softball and volleyball–there are over 220 volleyball teams in the NAIA but only 29 schools participating in swimming so if a school comes in 5th place in volleyball (like SOU did) they’ll score only half as many points as a school that comes in 5th place in both men’s and women’s swimming) and final points were divided by the number of teams that competed, Southern Oregon probably would have come in at #1 in each of the past four or five years. No team that has ranked higher than SOU in the final standings has only 13 teams (like SOU does). Most have 17 or more teams so they get to drop their lowest four or more teams a year. Last year’s winner, for instance, had 17 teams. The runner up had 22 teams!

SOU blows past Jamestown, a win away from Sweet 16

The Raiders won over Jamestown in three straight sets this afternoon. A win over St. Xavier (Wednesday at 2 p.m. PST) will mean Southern Oregon moves on to single-elimination bracketed play Friday. If they don’t succeed against St. Xavier, the Raiders will still be able to advance with a win over Viterbro (who beat St. Xavier today) on Thursday.

2018 NAIA Volleyball National Championship Pools Announced – Raiders may have caught a break

@SOURaiders @RaiderVB @MylaNorvell @elli_cook

#10 SOU landed in a pool with #7 Viterbo, #23 Jamestown, and unranked Saint Xavier. The top two teams advance. Being the second highest ranked team, according to the coaches, is nice, and having no top ranked teams in the pool is nicer. However, if you look at Massey Ratings, usually a better indicator than the coaches, things get even better.

Massey has Southern Oregon at #9, Viterbo at #13, Jamestown at #18 (behind both College of Idaho and Eastern Oregon–two teams the Raiders have defeated), and Saint Xavier at #34. SOU’s odds of advancing to the final 16 look promising.

Pool play begins November 27.
