GRR: College Men
The hoped-for college rugby games for this weekend is a much longer list than the actual games.
Cancelations both last-minute and de-facto have gone on, and that leaves us with a small number of games, but games that still matter.
When judging who should be ranked #1, sometimes you have to balance wins and losses; not just look for an undefeated team.
Now, you'd be forgiven for assuming that Life University would garner the #1 team after beating Lindenwood, but that's not the case.
GRR's #2 Life University defeated #1 Lindenwood on the road in St. Charles, Mo. Saturday.
It wasn't really a surprise in that Life has only lost to Lindenwood once (albeit earlier this season) in 15s, and often plays very well at Lindenwood. This is what happened on Saturday night. Life came in girded for payback and edged Lindenwood 32-26.
The Collegiate Rugby Championship 7s event is back and under the aegis of National Collegiate Rugby.
NCR acquired the rights to the CRC tournament, name, and intellectual property and through NCR 7s Commissioner Pat Clifton has been developing how to bring the CRC competition back.
