Did USA Rugby do it right after all?

Plenty of DII college rugby fans weren't happy with the choice of at-large teams.

USA Rugby collegiate jefe Rich Cortez said it was a tough choice, and acknowledged to Goff Rugby Report that maybe the MARC deserved a second seed, and perhaps there shouldn't be a #3 team in the playoffs.

RPI defeated Sacred Heart 32-27 to win the Tri-State Conference for the second time in three years.

"We were able to prove what we thought, which is we're able to play at a top level for a full game," said hooker Ray Lanzillo, who led a strong forward effort, especially in the lineouts. "We always come out really hard, but in this game we played hard for a full 80 minutes."

Sunday, RPI hosts Sacred Heart in the Tri-State final.

Saturday, the play-ins were held, and the WIIL Conference came out of it pretty well.

#2 Illinois State edged the Midwest winner IUPUI 24-21. The WIIl #3, UW-Milwaukee, defeated Minnesota-Duluth 39-31 to halt Duluth's longtime run to the national final four.

Xavier of Cincinnati and IUPUI are standing at 6-0 in the Midwest DII/NSCRO league, and it looks like the two teams are on a collision course this weekend in the conference final four.

Two weeks of data plus some upsets means we have a TON of moves in the Men's DII college rankings.

Furman drops. So does Sacred Heart. So does Western State. RPI gets a boost, and so does UNC-Charlotte, Middlebury, Bloomsburg and other MARC teams, and Quinnipiac.
