Football: Quelle surprise! Western tops OUA pre-season media poll

Western's sports information impresario, Andy Watson, conducted an unofficial OUA coaches and media poll over the past week. Don't look so shocked at which team received 21-of-22 first-place votes.
  1. Western Mustangs (2nd nationally, received 21 first-place votes)
  2. Laurier Golden Hawks (7, received 1 first-place vote)
  3. Queen’s Golden Gaels (8)
  4. Ottawa Gee-Gees (10)
  5. Guelph Gryphons
  6. McMaster Marauders
  7. Windsor Lancers
  8. Waterloo Warriors
  9. U of T Varsity Blues
  10. York Lions
Sun Media's OUA football preview will appear in many Ontario newspapers on Friday. Apparently there's some flip-flopping with how the teams are ranked, but if anything, it was done just so not to follow the crowd. If it is Queen's-Laurier in the 2-3 spots and McMaster-Ottawa-Guelph in the 4-5-6 in place of Ottawa-Guelph-McMaster, it is really nothing to take seriously.

All that matters is what is between the white lines, starting Sunday.
