Here come the playoffs

Sundays are always a mad scramble for me, trying to track down CIS coaches and put together a preview for the coming week. With 15 teams set to start the conference semi-finals next weekend, I'm busier than usual.

In any event, I've managed to talk to Ottawa's Denis Piche and Regina's Frank McCrystal so far, and I'll have their and other coaches' thoughts here for tomorrow.

It's also the final week for the CIS Top 10, so you've got one last chance to influence my voting. Here's what I'm thinking at the moment:
  1. Laval
  2. Ottawa
  3. Manitoba
  4. Saint Mary's
  5. Laurier
  6. Regina
  7. Saskatchewan
  8. Concordia
  9. Guelph
  10. Bishop's
A tough one at the bottom end there, what with Queen's dropping a home playoff game in the first round.

Playoff match-ups:
Acadia @ St. FX
Saint Mary's (bye)

Montreal @ Laval
Bishop's @ Concordia

Western @ Ottawa
Guelph @ Laurier

Calgary @ Manitoba
Saskatchewan @ Regina

A ton of terrific games there, and the two in CanWest should be barn burners. I'm also interested to see if Western/Guelph can pull off another upset against the OUA's best.
