A day after being chosen as the conference Defensive Player of the Week, the NAIA national office announced today that Jessie Selby is also the NAIA National Defensive Player of the Week.

A bit of a strange weekend for SOU athletics at home. Instead of games on Friday/Saturday or Saturday/Sunday the only game is men’s soccer on Sunday. Start time is 1 p.m.

SOU fall sports set to begin

Junior Rivas will be a junior in more ways than one this year

@SOUMensSoccer @SOURaiders @rivasjunior72

Tomorrow is the first competition for Southern Oregon University’s 2019-2020 athletics. There will be a men’s soccer game in Ashland at 2 p.m. The game doesn’t really count, but if you want to get a look at the latest version of a team that went 11-0-2 in conference and made it to the Sweet Sixteen at nationals last year, then head to Raider Stadium. The opponent will be Lane Community College.

Happy birthday, Carlos Magana!

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!

Raiders up to #12 on Massey

Massey Ratings bumped the Southern Oregon Men’s Soccer Team up a couple spots after yesterday’s playoff win. Massey has the Raiders’ defense ranked #1 in the NAIA. Massey also ranks Southern Oregon’s next foe as the #1 offense in the NAIA. Should be interesting…

SOU’s next opponent is Rio Grande, a team which has outscored its opponents 106-5. Not only have they not lost, they haven’t even tied. However, Massey indicates a much easier schedule for Rio Grande than the Raiders have gone through. For starters, the Cascade Conference has three teams in the final 16 teams. Rio Grande was the only team in the River States Conference to make the final 31.

Massey gives the Raiders a 38% chance of winning.
