Football
  • Remember when Simon Fraser looked like a Hardy Cup contender? The slumping Clan in danger of slipping below .500 if they lose tonight vs. Saskatchewan (and starting guard Brent Robbins is done for the season).

    It's possible the Alberta and Saskatchewan teams might make up the entire Canada West playoff field, but you never want to make predictions with that crazy-kooky conference. (Vancouver Province)

  • U of S coach Brian Towriss noted the Huskies-Clan matchup could determine "second, third, fourth" in Canada West. The Huskies still have a chance at first place, at least mathematically. (Saskatoon Star-Phoenix)

  • The Saskatchewan-Simon Fraser game is being videocast on the Clan's website.

  • It's home-and-homes the next two weeks in the AUS; Saint Mary's-Mount Allison and St. FX-Acadia. Monty Mosher points out the X-Men are plus-8 in takeaways, which is big reason they have started 3-0. (Halifax Chronicle-Herald)

  • Regina kicker Perri Scarcelli has a shot at some Canada West career records. (Regina Leader-Post)

  • What will backup Kurtis Dance bring to the party for the Guelph-Waterloo game? (Dance party pun was deliberate.) (Guelph Mercury)

  • Lots of players to keep an eye peeled for this weekend in the OUA, but how about some love for the players who don't play quarterback or running back? (Always OUA)
Hockey
  • The Nipissing Lakers' much anticipated season opener tonight vs. Queen's is a homecoming for Golden Gaels coach Brett Gibson, who played for the OHL's late and lamented North Bay Centennials. (Sun Media)

  • Rookie Lakehead coach Joel Scherban, who actually played with two current Thunderwolves, makes his coaching debut tonight in a pre-season series vs. Guelph in T-Bay. (Thunder Bay Chronicle-Journal)

  • The Calgary Dinos have three-game trip this weekend to play three NCAA teams, Colorado College, Denver and Air Force. (Sun Media)
Media coverage
  • The Guelph Gryphons, through Streaming Sports Network Canada, will have videocasts of men's and women's basketball and hockey games throughout the fall and winter. Friend-of-the-blog Greg Layson, the reporter for the Guelph Mercury, is going to do the honours with the play-by-play. Layson has experience in the broadcast booth with both hockey and hoops, having commentated for the Alberta Golden Bears and Pandas as well as the Alberta Junior Hockey League.
