Linking the country ... 6 days till CCS (conference championship Saturday)

  • Laval QB Benoit Groulx is champing at the bit to play Montreal, since he missed the regular-season games vs. the Carabins. (Le Soleil)

  • Montreal Alouettes cornerback Paul Woldu's interception return for a touchdown against the Argonauts was his first TD since the 2006 Mitchell Bowl, when he helped Saskatchewan beat Ottawa.

    It's really surprising Als owner Robert Wetenhall didn't ask to decline the touchdown, since it was a scored by a Canadian. (Regina Leader-Post)

  • Saskatchewan has averaged almost 42 points in its last five games heading into Saturday's Hardy Cup vs. Calgary. It's also notable the Huskies didn't have offensive sparkplug Jeff Hassler in the lineup when the teams played in the season opener. (Saskatoon StarPhoenix)

  • Heading into the Yates Cup at Queen's, Western running back Nathan Riva and his teammates "feel we should have won the first time we were there ... Queen's is the best football team in the OUA for a reason. It will be the toughest challenge all year." (London Free Press)

  • Queen's QB Dan Brannagan credits the Golden Gaels' success to a "versatile" defence. (Hamilton Spectator, Kingston Whig-Standard)

  • Ottawa is headed into a two-day debate to decide what (maybe) to do about Lansdowne Park. For what it's worth, one the Lansdowne Live leaders, Roger Greenberg, says Ottawa and Carleton could both play football there. (Ottawa Business Journal)
  • Brock coach Ken Murray is not buying that Carleton is a young team after the Badgers' 17-point loss: "Carleton is so mature. There's a reason why they're No. 1 in the country. We made some mistakes and they made us pay for them." (St. Catharines Standard)

  • Speaking of which, Ravens coach Dave Smart did an interview with LifeAthletics about leadership:

  • Rookie Brock women's coach Si Khounviseth started 2-0 on the weekend. (St. Catharines Standard)
  • For anyone wondering how Nipissing's attendance is holding up, the Lakers had 2,654 on Saturday vs. Carleton. (North Bay Nugget)

  1. Re; Ottawa and Carleton at Lansdowne Live.

    uOttawa has run into vehement opposition from NIMBYs in Sandy Hill to the idea of including an outdoor stadium in their proposed new sport complex. This summer the university told Action Sandy Hill, the residents' association, that they would rethink the project rather than alienate their neighbours. I gleaned this from reading the minutes of an ASH general meeting in August.

    Therefore I would not be surprised to hear that uOttawa has approached Lansdowne Live recently to see what could be worked out with them.

  2. If you're interested in reading a recap of the Carbs vs Bishop's game in ENGLISH... ;) In The Gazette.

  3. Sorry but I'm a little suspicious of the continued focus on how banged up the Mustangs are going into the finals. With Riva and Faulds putting up the numbers they are who do they think they are kidding. Is this a bit of a head game by Marshall?
