Deja Vu – SOU vs Marian

Strangely, Southern Oregon has to travel to Kentucky while Dickinson State (North Dakota) goes to Redding, just a couple hours from Ashland. SOU and Dickinson are only five spots from each other in the rankings so it doesn’t make much sense. Details here.

McNeal Hall after demolition nearly complete (4/3/16)


I took thousands of photos in what was this place. There were many good times within, but good riddance! The lighting was awful, and the place showed its age despite renovations in the past couple decades. I’m looking forward to the new venue in fall of 2017.

Southern Oregon University and the NAIA’s Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup

SOU’s 2015 football team and 2015-16 women’s basketball team both came in 2nd place nationwide

@LSDirectorsCup @SOU_Football @raidersayre @SOURaiders

You can read about SOU’s 6th place standing in the Directors’ Cup here. Digging into the data a little deeper reveals that the schools in front of Southern in the rankings all have swim teams (SOU, and most NAIA schools, do not). If you back out the swim points, SOU is actually in first place!

With less than 30 teams competing in swimming at the NAIA level, why does swimming get equal rating with football (87 programs have football)? Or basketball (over 130 programs have basketball in NAIA DII)?
