They are not a scholarship program so, I think, the university does not pay for
all the cots related to the program. It inhibits the travel. CAL has more teams
in the area who play the sport, thus far more games.
Cal is located near a lot of Rugby programs. Their full season before the
playoffs had 11 games in NCal, 10 in SCal, 3 in Las Vegas, 1 in Vancouver, Can
and 1 in Washington. Two of these games were against JCs. They play 3 in the
Championship tourney then go to Pennsylvania to play in the 7s invitational.
They will have played 5 games on Sunday.BYU scheduled 7 games in
Utah but 2 were canceled, 3 in SCal, 2 in Las Vegas, 2 in Colo and 1 in Az. They
play 3 in the Championship tourney. Travel costs probably prohibit
some of the travel and Sunday play probably causes less scheduling
opportunities. The last game of the 7s invite is played on Sunday.I
suppose the team could use more donations to help defray season expenses.
Thanks for the heads up about the U19 game that was going to happen before, but
why didn't you mention that it's two Utah teams who were playing against each
other in it for the 4th consecutive year. There should have been a story on
that game be itself, but at least mentioning two Utah teams playing would have
almost sufficed. You guys dropped the ball big time.
I don't quit understand rugby but who can answer this: Why did BYU only play 15
games and CAL 26?
Just watched the semifinal match on espn3 replay this afternoon. The Cougars
have a great team, it's going to be a lot of fun tonight. Go Cougs!
Good luck I hope they beat Cal.
I think by "tonight" he actually means tomorrow (Saturday). Go Cougs!
