Morning rounds ...

To be updated in the morning ...

  • Laval's punt coverage unit gave up a touchdown last week and Montréal has two solid returners in wideout Frank Bruno and d-back Hamid Mahmoudi. Game within a game here, people. (Le Journal du Québec)

  • Twenty-year-old younger Alexandre Nadeau-Puize looks likely to start at QB for those No. 5 Carabins vs. the No. 1 Rouge et Or (Allez Les Bleus)

  • Western QB Michael Faulds is not thinking about records (he'll probably get Western's career yardage mark vs. Windsor on Saturday night and has a shot reaching the 10,000 plateau). He's also close to the OUA's career completions record.

    Athletes must lean at an early age how to answer that question with a straight face. Those of us who are born spectators spend all our time thinking about records! Faulds is 2,070 yards away from Matt Connell's career record for passing yardage. Queen's Dan Brannagan is 1,765 behind Connell. (London Free Press)

  • Speaking of Western-Windsor, Lancers coach Mike Morencie did not name starter yesterday. Western tailback Nathan Riva is playing close to his hometown (La Salle), so there's a storyline. (Windsor Star)

  • McMaster's James Edwards has made a "tough adjustment" from defensive end to weakside linebacker, but wasn't playing D-line at 205 lbs. tough enough already? (Hamilton Spectator)

    Guelph kicker Rob Maver has made a 64-yard field goal in practice, which explains why the CFL is so high on him. (Toronto Star)

  • U of T debuted the "steamroller" formation last night ... a short-yardage set with backup QB George Gretes in the shotgun and two blockers on each side. The Score's D.J. Bennett, on his Twitter, likened it to what the Florida Gators do with Tim Tebow. (Toronto Sun)

  • Dan Farthing (U of S Huskies) has entered the Saskatchewan Roughriders' Plaza of Honor. (Regina Leader-Post)
  • UNB easily handled Brock 4-0 in non-conference men's hockey. (Sun Media)

  • Manitoba gave coach Mike Sirant a win in his first game back, 6-5 over Carleton.
