monolith Polo Ralph Lauren (PRL) came to a head, but it’s a story worth
remembering in case it (inevitable) rears its head again... Read More
Until Saturday, Utah hadn’t played a 15s match since falling to Army in the
Elite Eight last spring, but you wouldn’t know it just by looking at the
57-5 score they put on UC Santa Barbara in Mesquite, Nev. Despite the large
final tally, the Utes, expected to contend for the inaugural CPL title

“Especially after having the whole... Read More
