Halloween in Ashland


Ashland’s Halloween Parade from the Elks Lodge

@NHGoregon #AshlandOregon #Oregon #Ashland

I had a different viewpoint for the Halloween parade this year. Next year I’ll try somewhere else as the Elks’ balcony was too crowded and most of the views were obstructed by trees that have yet to lose their leaves.

Happy Halloween

Raiders up to #3 in new Massey Ratings


@SOURaiders @SOU_Football @Chasecole31 @itsbronsenADER

With the Raiders big road win yesterday in Montana, Massey has bumped Southern Oregon up in the computer rankings to #3. SOU will play Massey’s #12, #11, and #9 over the next three weeks. Two of those games are at home in Ashland. Massey has the Raiders as at least 7 point favorites in each contest.

The coaches’ poll comes out tomorrow. Don’t look for any major changes in the top nine from the coaches. The coaches don’t tend to move teams up unless the team in front of them lost. It will be interesting to see what they do with #2 Morningside. The Raiders were punished in the poll for losing to NCAA DI UC Davis, even though the Raiders accumulated more yards than Davis. Yesterday Morningside lost to an NCAA DIII team (Wisconsin-Whitewater) by two touchdowns. Massey says that UC Davis could beat Wisconsin-Whitewater by a touchdown. Will the coaches drop Morningside as much as they dropped the Raiders? I doubt it. Look for Morningside to slip barely out of the top five and the Raiders to still be at #9.


Raiders #4 in new Massey Ratings


@SOURaiders @SOU_Football @Rollpride @FConference


2016 SOU Football Team after 1st victory

The Frontier Conference standings for football are as even as they possibly could be (after each team has played two or three conference games) with three teams at 2-1, two at 1-1, and three at 1-2. Anyone can still win the conference. Massey has five Frontier Conference teams in the NAIA top nine, led by SOU at #4 (with the most difficult schedule–SoS in the above chart–in the NAIA). The coaches’ poll won’t be that kind. The Raiders will be the only team in the top ten come Monday afternoon.

Massey gives SOU a 72% chance of beating Carroll in Montana this Saturday, a much higher percentage than the Raiders have ever been given at Carroll. Southern Oregon has only won once at Carroll College.
