Another photo today from our walk on the Oregon Coast yesterday. You can see rain happening in the Pacific Ocean in this photo which was far more pleasant than the rain falling on us a bit earlier. The good thing about the rain was it cleared out most of the tourists.

If you are trying to find this spot, Google “Cape Perpetua Special Interest Area”.

If the trees look fuzzy in today’s photo, it’s because it was raining (despite the blue sky in the background).

Eastern Oregon over Marian at the half

It isn’t often that I find myself cheering for Eastern Oregon. Although Massey gave EOU only a 7% chance of victory today, and Massey predicted 41 points for Marian, the score at halftime is EOU 10 and Marian 0. Eastern’s offense hasn’t done anything. The touchdown came via a pick 6. You can view the current score here.

Maybe the Frontier Conference is even stronger than Massey thought…

Down but not out

Rainy catch

@SOURaiders @SOU_Football @Matt_Retzlaff

The Raiders lost to their football nemesis yesterday. Details here. Matt Retzlaff broke the SOU career receiving-yards record in today’s photo.

Southern Oregon has outgained all seven of their opponents in total yardage. However, SOU has a negative turnover ratio in five games, three of which were losses.

Surprisingly, Massey still has Southern Oregon at #4 in the country. Of course, Massey considers strength of schedule, and SOU has the toughest opponents of anyone in the NAIA. The coaches won’t be as generous in their rankings come Monday. I’m guessing they will drop the Raiders to #12 or #13. With just four games to go, what will this mean?

The Raiders can still win the Frontier Conference if they win out and Western Montana beats Eastern Oregon. That’s also probably the only scenario that will earn the Raiders a home playoff game in the postseason. One more loss and the Raiders will still have a chance at the postseason but no games will be in Ashland.

Massey has the Raiders as a 7-point favorite at College of Idaho Saturday.

Time for a third meeting with Carroll

SOU football rain

SOU football team beats MNU on 11/22/14 in the rain

@SOURaiders @SOU_Football

The 2014 NAIA Football Championship Series Quarterfinal Pairings came out this morning and have SOU going to play Carroll for the third time this season. You’d think that with 88 football teams in the NAIA they could come up with a way that you didn’t have to play a team three times (unless the third time was a championship game which this isn’t). In any event, SOU knows they can beat Carroll, Carroll knows SOU is probably the only team that can beat them, and for all intents and purposes the 11/29 game is the championship game. I’m sure Carroll would rather play any of the other remaining teams.

As it turned out (according to the 2014 NAIA Football Coaches’ Top 25 Poll), #8 is at #1, #7 is at #2, etc. That means, of course, that had SOU gotten past EOU last week SOU would likely be hosting another game against the #5 or #6 team instead of going on the road to play the #1 team. Oh well. SOU didn’t get screwed as much as EOU, the third best team in the country according to better rankings, who was not even given the chance to play in the final 16.
