Football: Now it's time for the breakdown

McGill SID extraordinaire Earl Zukerman has provided a breakdown of CFL players by Canadian alma mater.

It's no surprise that McMaster still comes out on top, given the success Greg Marshall had there before his stint with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

If someone's Ontario public education system math is correct, there are 129 players from CIS schools in the league, including a handful who played at Simon Fraser before it joined the league. If memory serves, that's up slightly from a season ago, which in the short run suggests that it's just a perception that CFL teams are putting more of a premium on Canadians who played NCAA Division 1. They might be; just looking at the raw totals is no proof one way or another.

Calgary, Guelph and Sherbrooke, among others, are the schools you would expect to see make a climb up this list in the seasons to come. Saint Mary's only having four alums in the CFL is a bit of a surprise.
