Linking the country: Huskies lose to T-Birds and a centenarian running back sets a record for the ages

  • Count the freshman's record as 1-0: Eric Dzwilewski and the Dinos beat Regina 24-21 last night, in the young QB's first start replacing Erik Glavic. 13 yards per attempt isn't too bad...and like a pitcher crediting his catcher after a complete game shutout, Dzwilewski credits his offensive line for giving him enough time to work. (Calgary Herald)

  • This is not necessarily always about football, but former Guelph QB Justin Dunk now hosts GryphTalk on CFRU. An archive of the show, on which our Mike Treadgold also appears. (CFRU; Friday's show is here.)

  • Continuing our Guelph theme, Greg Layson has his own link dump, for the OUA. (Big Man on Campus)

  • It's a rushing tandem of Craig Leger and Devon Jones for SMU this year. (The Chronicle-Herald)

  • Kevin Mitchell brings the nut graf: "The University of Saskatchewan Huskies committed six turnovers, surrendered six sacks and looked uniformly outmatched during a surprise 31-12 loss to the unranked British Columbia Thunderbirds." Laurence Nixon was actually yanked in the third quarter, meaning that the two best quarterbacks in the conference (in the country?) haven't played the full two games for their respective teams. (Saskatoon Star-Phoenix)

  • Huskie Football Outsider has the breakdown of the 31-12 loss. (Huskie Football Outsider)

  • Western has to beat McMaster if they want an easier route to home-field advantage...then again, we all enjoyed having everyone at 6-2 last year, so why not make us break out the divining rods and slide rules for playoff scenarios? Also, Morris Dalla Costa uses Wikipedia for his lede, but not Mac's roster for the spelling of "DiCroce." (London Free Press)

  • How embarrassing for OUA defences, to be unable to stop a 102-year-old Daryl Stephenson: "From 2004 to 2088, Daryl Stephenson ripped through OUA defences en route to becoming the all-time leading rusher in CIS history." You laugh, but if I were living in Windsor, I'd want to fast-forward 78 years as well. (One Windsor newspaper)

  • Windsor probably won't be that difficult for Queen's to beat, but I would have said the same thing about UBC going to Saskatchewan. (Kingston Whig-Standard)

  • Brian Dobie expects a lot from his offensive line this week. Don't we all. (Winnipeg Sun)

  • I can't speak for everyone, but I'm guessing many of those disgruntled Laurier fans are actually disgruntled about seeing Ryan Pyear in the same TV ad for the last 18 years (all estimates courtesy one Windsor newspaper). On the other hand, there's lots of extrapolation from impossibly small sample sizes in this article, so there's that, too. (The Record)


  • The Regina Cougars men's team likes their "new digs" at the Co-operators Centre at Evraz Place. (Regina Leader-Post)
