Two ranked teams, #20 Middle Tennessee State and #26 Florida International, join three-time DIAA national finalists Central Florida and 5-1 Georgia Southern in the SIRC final four this weekend.
There's little to figure out in the South Independent Rugby Conference with two weekends of competition left.
Eight teams play this coming weekend, with Florida International at Central Florida, and Florida State at South Florida in the SIRC South, and Georgia Southern at Georgia Tech and Kennesaw State at Memphis in the SIRC North.
Despite the fact that Florida International went into this past weekends game 2-0, and their opponents were 1-1, there was an air of great importance to the game.
You see, that 1-1 team was Central Florida, the DIAA national champs in 2013 and 2014, and the runners up this past spring. If FIU was going to be taken seriously, they needed to win.
Could the most competitive league in DIAA be the SIRC South?
It’s worth a look, as the loss of Florida Atlantic makes the all-Florida men’s college competitive a four-team donnybrook of six grueling games for all.
