College Premier Division Rankings 3/21/11

Uncategorized

The latest edition of the Rugby Magazine College Premier Division rankings are out.

The records next to the team mean nothing in CPD play. A&M is 1-1, LSU is 0-2 in the league. LSU dropped a game to Notre Dame this past weekend, the Aggies were off. Everyone had Notre Dame bringing up the rear in the Mid-South Conference, but now it looks like LSU may be left holding the wooden spoon – if they do not turn it around.

A&M goes to Tennessee this weekend. A win in Knoxville gives the Ags a real shot at a top-3 finish in the conference.

As for the rest of the rankings: you won’t see any movement until Cal plays St. Mary’s and Life plays Arkansas State. In our opinion, it is a four-tiered cake. Tier one is Cal and BYU. Tier two is St. Mary’s, Life, Arkansas State, Life, Utah, Army, Dartmouth and Central Washington. Tier three is everyone ranked between 10-20. Tier four is everyone else. BYU put up 90-plus on both Colorado and Air Force in three days. USA Rugby should just make BYU and Cal play as men’s clubs in the Super League and be done with it.
