I try to shoot so that I have to do as little editing after the fact as possible. The photo, above, needed some work.

The Raiders are now 21-1 after last night’s 111-33 victory. Tuesday night’s game (2/9/16) will be a big one against OIT in Ashland. The winner will be in first place in the Cascade Conference. The crowd will be huge. Get there early if you want a seat (and a free t-shirt).

No one answered my question, but the answer to “What do these numbers (9, 1, 3, 7, 10, 2, 1) mean?” is, “the rankings of the teams the Raiders beat in the playoffs over the past two years”. A streak of seven consecutive, playoff victories over top 10 teams (five of the games on the road) is impressive to say the least. Four of those victories came over teams in the top 3 (all on the road). Amazing.

The Raiders finished up as #2 in the final NAIA football rankings for 2015. Hopefully the Raiders beat teams ranked something like 16, 11, 7, and 5 in 2016’s playoffs. Why? Because that means a #1 ranking heading into them.

The coaches’ poll has three Frontier Conference teams in the top 25. Massey’s final rankings has seven Frontier Conference teams in the top 25. The coaches still aren’t paying attention to Massey despite Massey’s perfect record in predicting the final three rounds of the playoffs (compared to the coaches’, less than a coin flip, 3-4 record).

There is no snow in the forecast for Daytona, Florida next week. Instead, temperatures are likely to be in the 70s most of the time, occasionally dipping down into the 60s at night. Brrrrrr….

If you are in or near Ashland, come on down to RedZone today after 4:30 p.m. for Howard’s Happy Hour. Coach Craig Howard, and other members of the Raider coaching staff, will be available to chat and answer questions about SOU’s football season.
