- To add insult to injury, UBC coach Ted Goveia had his car keyed while his team was in Saskatchewan. From Little Man on Campus:
"(W)hen Goveia arrived in the parking lot at Thunderbird Stadium to pick up his truck, he noticed something was amiss. Vandals had taken a key or some sharp instrument and etched the initials SFU into the paint of Goveia's Range Rover.
"'It was the letters 'SFU' and then it was keyed up and down the whole side,' said Goveia. 'It's disturbing to see that done. It's a waste of time. Whatever. It's hard to say who did it and under what circumstances but I don't think it has anything to do with the (Shrum Bowl) or the sport.'
"Goveia said he had yet to report the incident to police. He also said that the schedule of his coaching staff over the next two weeks as UBC (1-5) prepares for its final two regular season games is hectic enough that he's not going to have time to get it repaired.
" 'I am not going to have time to get it fixed until after the season," Goveia explained. " 'We're going to be pretty busy, so I 'll have to drive around with it for a bit.'
- Saint Mary's, which beat Mount Allison 35-7 in Moncton, did not dress two starters from its offensive line and four from its defensive front seven. All should be good to go for next week's game vs. McGill (it's a rematch of the 1987 Vanier Cup!). (Halifax Chronicle-Herald)

- Some notable non-conference women's results: Last season's Final 8 bronze medallist Alberta is 1-1 at their home tourney after Windsor won 65-47 on Saturday ... junior national team player Justine Colley went off for 26 points in Saint Mary's 63-57 over Carleton, which is pretty good defensive ballclub.
