    Blondie —

    Does the legitmacy of a national championship and the quality of play among these teams change your club’s opinion of playing division?

    What are the main factors for staying or leaving DI? Competetive density? Level of competition? Money?

    Curious.

  2. Just call me coach....

    I just noticed today that the DII Championship (unofficial) and the DI Championship (official) are at the same venue, fields, and hotel, hosted by the same club (Orlando) on overlapping days.

    D1 – Friday/Sunday
    D2 – Saturday/Sunday

    How FUN!!!!!!

    I think that it is terrific the Orlando arranged to host both events. Perhaps it will provide the USA rugby folks a chance to see the value of the DII division.

    (and remember that they support 4 levels of men’s playoffs…I’m sure the DI to DIII comparision for the men has a similar, if not greater, drop in play compared to the women)

    Anyone know of the times for the D2 matches? The site just gives the match order…

    I’m with Emily–this will be a GREAT event. I would love to go.
