Football: Québec conference announces all-stars

Laval takes the gateau with 11 selections -- five on offence, four on defence and Christopher Milo as both kicker and punter.

Meantime, Sherbrooke, with a 5-3 record, has only two players selected. McGill, which didn't win a game, has just as many. Bishop's, which missed the playoffs, has five. This is not meant to impugn anyone's selection. There is an argument you hear every year that the picks should reflect the standings, although that's debatable. McGill allowed 52 points per game. It has an all-star on defence. Sherbrooke allowed 19 a game and gets shut out.

(That's reminiscent of a year about a decade ago where when Queen's missed the playoffs but had three all-Canadian selections ... one Tricolour type was heard to remark, "You'd think they'd have let us have three wins, so we could have made the playoffs.")
