The college football team from Oregon went to the National Championship game, and lost.
But this is about that OTHER game, and that other team.
In 2014, both the University of Oregon and Southern Oregon University played for the top prize in college football. In very different divisions, but a championship is a championship.
SOU won, and yet the Ducks' efforts--albeit on a much larger stage--overshadowed the Red Raiders' victory.
That team is the focus of a documentary already produced called "Becoming." Former SOU player Michael Bryant had a hand in that, and is now working on a profile of a successful small-college team, in the film "MOmentum."
