Ranking the college 7s teams at this early stage is … risky. We are judging some teams on perhaps one tournament played against middling opposition, or maybe we’re ranking a team based on last year’s performances, graduations be damned.

Ranking on potential is a dangerous move, and still we have unknowns. Delaware is not playing rugby, Arkansas State is getting a new coach, Utah isn’t playing rugby, St. Mary’s is expected to be better than they were last fall, Army isn’t playing rugby … you see how it gets.

We rank these teams based on their most recent performances, with a nod to major players graduating.

There is still a lot of 7s to be players, and many more tournament that have greater meaning than the few already held this fall. This is just the start.
