Around the web: Revamped Western to hoop it up vs. Ohio State

From time to time there's stuff worth noting, but there isn't enough time to give each one a unique post ...

(As of 3:30 p.m. July 30).

  • Punter Burke Dales (Concordia) brawled with kicker Sandro DeAngelis during a Calgary Stampeders practice. Please don't let Sports By Brooks get word of a kicker throwdown.

    It is sexist to joke that what set Dales off was DeAngelis calling him "Stacey," so don't. (The Calgary Herald.)

  • Obby Khan (Simon Fraser), the Winnipeg Blue Bombers starting centre, has been called out publicly over his play. Khan has handled it like a champ. (Winnipeg Free Press, Winnipeg Sun.)

  • The Edmonton Journal profiles Eskimos safety Elliott Richardson, the Acadia grad who took over as the starting safety after veteran Scott Gordon (uOttawa) was injured.

  • The Halifax Herald's excellent Monty Mosher followed up his earlier story by confirming brothers Devon and Tristan Jones will team up with the Saint Mary's Huskies. Both of them play tailback, so that spot on the depth chart

    Mosher's story also includes a full list of Saint Mary's recruits.

  • Cool pictures of St. FX's new football field before the lines get painted.

  • OK, it's not football per se, but remember the post about using the Create-A-School feature in NCAA 10 video game so you and your friends can play as CIS teams? The Daily Norseman has reviewed the game.

  • Windsor previously announced it was playing Ohio State, but the Big Ten's Buckeyes will also play the Western Mustangs at noon on Aug. 31 at the St. Denis Centre.

    Mark Wacyk as always has nailed an in-depth look at the two-time OUA West champions, who have to replace five key guys, including No. 1 scoring option Brad Smith who signed to play in Britain.

    Ohio State-Western? Who is a Queen'sman who had a childhood rooting interest in the Michigan Wolverines (cool helmets, the Fab Five, Desmond Howard doing the Heisman pose) going to root for in that one?

  • The Hamilton Spectator has a look at McMaster's women's basketball recruiting. It might be be old news by now to some, but it will still be a Final 8 format for at least one more season on the women's side. This does make it possible for both championships to go to 16 teams with a Final Four concurrently in 2011, just saying.

  1. Talking about running backs, there is a pretty good one at Richland Northeast HS in South Carolina. He should be a good prospect for Ottawa. Why? Because his real name is Gee Gee Greene.
