Today the NAIA Football Coaches’ Top 25 Poll came out. Eastern Oregon University deservedly moved up from #26 to #10 after beating previously #2 SOU at home and #22 Montana Western on the road to start the season. The coaches have only 3 Frontier Conference teams in the top 20 while the more objective Massey Ratings has 7 Frontier Conference teams in the top 13. Frontier Conference teams are “only” 2-2 against non-conference opponents. However, the losses were both against NCAA DI teams! EOU is the only undefeated team from the Frontier Conference. SOU will get another crack at EOU, this time in Ashland, on October 15.

As I predicted yesterday, the coaches have some teams ahead of the Raiders like Doane (at #5) and Kansas Wesleyan (at #11) who wouldn’t finish in the top half of the Frontier Conference. One example of how the coaches aren’t paying attention is they have Montana Western and Dickinson State tied in the standings even though Montana Western just beat Dickinson State by 16 points at a neutral field.
