Three big pieces of news came out of the opening West Coast 7s collegiate tournament this past weekend.

This past week our picks were pretty good. We got 15 winners right, with one tie (so that's a wrong pick) and one loss; we'll take that.

That, along with last week's results, now influences our DIAA rankings. Jumping into the Top 40 is Middle Tennessee State and Boise State. Dropping from #1 is Bowling Green, which lost to Western Michigan.

Less than two minutes into the USA's Rugby World Cup game against Argentina the Eagles were screwed by the referee.

Loyola-Chicago’s defeat of Northern Iowa has the Great Midwest sitting up and taking notice.

Now at 2-1, Loyola is tied with Northern Iowa at 3-1 and in a solid position to make a go in the Great Midwest playoffs.

Now, Loyola’s 27-22 loss to Illinois State on September 7 looms large as an indication that Loyola could be very serious.

Well guess what, we've got College DII rankings right here.

It's been a few weeks since you saw any, so don't be surprised that you will see some major changes.

Such as ...Furman, Vermont, and especially Kings Point move up, especially Kings Point.

Goff Rugby Report Editor Alex Goff is involved in a new effort to bring back the print magazine to North American rugby.

Goff will be the editor of TRY Magazine, a high-end, glossy quarterly magazine that will bring in-depth stories about the game in the USA and Canada.

Cam Dolan will earn his 50th cap when he runs on against Argentina in the Rugby World Cup, and it's a well-deserved milestone.

The former Naples Bears HS player, who went on to play for Life University and captain the USA U19s and U20s, Dolan played in all four 2015 Rugby World Cup games, but didn't start in any of them.

The US Merchant Marine Academy is now clear atop the Tri-State Conference after beating William Paterson 50-5 Saturday. 

The result was an impressive one as WPU is certainly one of the major competitors in the Tri-State Men's DII conference, and to have Kings Point beat them by 45 points is a bit of a head-turner.

What's going on in the Big 10? 

It's still completely up in the air.

Wisconsin started really well with wins over Michigan State and Minnesota, but the Badgers were surprised this past weekend by Illinois, 17-15.

The Eagles are going to be up against it against Argentina, but they are targeting a win regardless.

Playing in the third Rugby World Cup pool match of 2019, the USA is 0-2 and needs to win the remaining two to get that coveted 3rd spot in the pool, which brings the reward of an automatic berth in the 2023 Rugby World Cup.

Reporters were asking players about that.

This past weekend we brought back our predictions for each week's games.

This is always a bit of a crapshoot, especially when not a lot of teams have common opponents. Of the 16 games played, we were right on 11 and wrong on five. That's not a great percentage. We were right on the margin of victory (or at least in the neighborhood) on seven.

The USA won the Glendale 7s playing some of the best seven-a-side rugby the Eagle woman have shown in a long time.

We know they're better now than they were a year ago, heck, six months ago. But how? Here are four aspects of play where the Eagles are way, way better than they were.

Will Hooley returns to action and will be on the bench for the USA as the Eagles get set to play Argentina October 9 at Kumagaya Rugby Stadium.

Head Coach Gary Gold has reunited the center pairing of Paul Lasike and Bryce Campbell. Marcel Brache, who has started twice at outside center in this World Cup, will suit up at left wing. Mart Iosefo doesn't make the gameday 23.

It's two tournament victories in a row, as the USA Women's 7s team won the Glendale 7s, beating New Zealand in the semis and Australia in the final.
