While it is a couple weeks old, some might appreciate incoming St. FX O-lineman Colin Wicks' quotes about his former school in an interview with the excellent Monty Mosher two weeks ago.
"[Wicks] said any betrayal in the tawdry Waterloo mess is the domain of senior university administration, which told the blameless players they would have a team in 2010 before subsequently suspending the program for a year in June.That should have prompted the question, what changed Waterloo's mind? Excuse the belabouring, but Wicks' quotes would have been good column fodder for a writer in the Tri-Cities, instead of being ignored while everyone defers to authority figures and lives the lie.
" 'A lot of people are pretty sympathetic to our cause,' Wicks, back in Nova Scotia this summer, said in an interview this week.
" 'We got backstabbed by the administration. I can’t put it any other words. They promised that we’d play this fall.' "
