GRR: College Men
The upstart in the Red River Conference has to be the University of Texas Austin.
The Longhorns, once one of the stronger teams in the conference, had hit upon hard times not helped by a revolving door of coaches. They have a new coaching staff again, but perhaps some solidity. Certainly there's a group of players who are behind their new head guy.
Week #3 of the Florida College season sees everyone enter competition with only one … one team at 2-0.
South Florida is the only team to not have lost a game and USF will host North Florida this weekend in a quest to go 3-0.
Sure they won by a lone point over Florida Atlantic, but they still won.
Saint Mary's won the second game of their tour, defeating Oxford University 16-12.
The tour covers a week and includes Cambridge University, Oxford, and Trinity College of Dublin. Cambridge edged Saint Mary's 24-17 on Sunday. The Gaels, whose 2nds won comfortably 47-0, play Trinity on Saturday in Ireland.
Loose forwards are next in our list for the top DIAA players of the fall.
Whether they are openside flankers, blindside flankers, or No. 8s, we lump them all together, often because many of these players suit up in all of those positions.
We have 43 players in this list.
