Congrats to both the Cougars and the Utes. I watched the second half of the
BYU/Navy game and wasn't disappointed, this is one good team that is a serious
contender for the championship. I'll be looking forward to seeing both games on
ESPN this Saturday. Go Cougs! (and Utes)
Nice work lads. The state of Utah continues to produce great rugby teams at all
hopefully BYU and Utah play again. How'd that go for you last time, Utes?lol....
Wouldn't it be great if Utah played BYU at Rio Tinto on the 21st.
As a BYU rugby fan, I hope that Utah beats Cal. It would be a blast to have the
championship come down to BYU vs Utah. An all State of Utah final would be
quite a complement to rugby in this state and create a spinoff craze that might
get more of our kids started early in the sport. On the other hand
I would love to see BYU beat Cal again.
I was at the BYU/Navy match on Saturday. Great win by the Cougs in front of a
large home crowd. It would be great to see BYU beat down the Utes at Rio Tinto!
Wow, about time the rugby championship is played somewhere other than Stanford,
less than a 1 hour drive from Cal's campus.It makes sense to have it
in Utah as two of the teams consistently making it tot the semis are from this
state. It is also more centralized for other teams like Navy, Penn State, etc.
Good Luck to BYU and Utah, that would be a great final in Rio Tinto.
BYU will play Cal, no doubt about it. They are the premier teams this year,
like every year.
Good luck to both teams. It would be awesome to have a BYU/Utah rematch at Rio
Tinto for the National Title covered by ESPN!!
i'd love to see a byu/utah championship as well but the utes have to beat a
tough cal team that already beat us up 35-0 earlier this year. cal's won
something like 25 of the last 27 national rugby championships. i think byu is
the most complete rugby team in the country this year. i was looking up stats
the other day and read that their average margin of victory was something like
75 points, it was rediculous. anyway, i'd like to see my utes pull it out but
cal rugby is the golden standard here in the states and i just think they have a
better team. i've seen both cal and byu play this year and byu has more size,
more speed, and more athleticism. i think this is byu's year.
Congrats to Highland High's north and south collegiate programs.
It is just nice to see things starting to work out. If BYU, Utah, the service
academies, and others keep improving, Cal will begin to find it difficult to
keep that aweful chip on their shoulder.More importantly, the Eagles
will begin to have a deeper talent pool to work with. We may never be a
perennial top tier international team but, just maybe we can start climbing out
of the cellar!!!
I too would love to see Utah beat Cal so we could crush them in the championship
game. No love for the Bears, & nothing better than seeing BYU humiliate
Utah in whatever arena.
I don't know a thing about rugby but, I think it's great that both teams are in
the semis. good luck to both
WA_Alum&Dad: as if we Ute fans really care. I don't even know how score is
kept in the game. It ranks up there with golf and women's tennis to me and most
other Utah fans.
