DIA Rugby News
Here are the Men's DI rugby games not only from this week, but the weeks coming up.
Since there are three playoff scenarios going on, we figured we'd give you some context, with the playoff/postseason scores from last week, and then what to expect next week.
Here are our reports on the Varsity Cup QFs:
Perhaps the most physical rugby player in the Rugby East, Iona College center Mike Scarcella was Goff Rugby Report's MVP Back in DI rugby fot last fall, and he is now a Scholz Award finalist.
One of four players who are finalists for the Scholz Award for the top men's college player in the country, Scarcella started playing at Bishop Hendricken in Rhode Island.
DIA is down to eight teams, and there is a marked difference between some of them.
It’s not easy to get capped as an undergraduate college player.
It’s even harder to do that and become a regular. And it’s hard still to do all of that and continue to contribute to your college team back home.
Ask anyone who has seen Chad Gough play and they will say he is multi-skilled.
Playing hooker for the University of Utah, and with the collegiate All Americans, Gough has shown he can run, pass, and play in the open field as well as anyone. It’s something that has been a part of his game since the start.
The University of Arizona defeated Air Force emphatically in Saturday’s DIA quarterfinal, taking the Zoomies to earth to the tune of 51-7.
San Diego State just won't go away.
Arizona visits Air Force in one of two DIA playoff games this weekend, and like the other, this one's kind of hard to predict.
The first round of the DIA playoffs is halfway done already, but two games remain, and both are compelling.
Playoffs often force some serious moves in the Men's All-DI playoffs, and we're right into playoffs now.
Given that DI-level teams have three (three!) postseasons to keep track of, we are, of course, still trying to figure out who would beat whom were they to face off.
Lindenwood University defeated Davenport 36-14 Saturday in a game that doubled as the final Mid-South league game and next week's DIA playoff.
Since Lindenwood and Davenport were slated to play in the DIA playoffs anyway, Lindenwood offered Davenport the option of making this game count twice, thus saving Davenport the trip to St. Charles, Mo. next week.
