Football: Stephenson slowed in pursuit of rushing record

Windsor's Daryl Stephenson needs 337 for the Canadian career mark, but Greg Layson is reporting that the running back has a hamstring injury that could limit his carries in the Lancers opener vs. York.

The Lancers' other Daryl, running back Daryl Townsend, is going to be playing safety tomorrow. It's not unheard of to shift a player to the other side of the ball in camp, if his talent demands that he be on the field.

Incidentally, if you have any time tonight or tomorrow before 1 p.m., check out the Big Man on Campus OUA preview. Mr. Layson is calling for the U of T Varsity Blues to end The Streak on Saturday vs. Windsor. He's not alone in this prediction. I've heard more than one person joke about the fact that the Blues' last three wins -- in 2001, 1999 and in 1997 -- were over the Lancers.

Their last win before that was earlier in '97 over Waterloo, whom the Blues face today.

(Update: On CFRC, Queen's student station, Tyler King has predicted that the Blues will beat Waterloo tonight. What was that Oscar Wilde said about youth?)
