Linking the country: Monday afternoon linkin' time

  • Howard Tsumura talks to UBC coach Shawn Olson after the T-Birds went into Saskatoon and beat the Huskies. Much of it is what you'd expect. (Little Man on Campus)

  • Here are some highlights from Sherbrooke's 36-6 loss to Laval. Sébastien Lévesque's touchdown run starting at 0:49 is somewhat embarrassing for the Vert et Or defence, although the next clip shows them making a goal line stand, and Alexandre Poirier made at least one excellent catch. (via @VertetOr)

  • Can't say it better than the headline, so: "Rams take away lesson from loss to Dinos." (Regina Leader-Post)

  • Will QUFL teams sweep interlock this weekend? This year? (

  • More highlights! Who says you can't have fun watching the University of Toronto play football? (link via the Big Man on Campus)

  • Without Sam Malian, Windsor were in tough, and Queen's had to adjust to the "faster" Austin Kennedy. With six sacks, I think they adjusted just fine. (Kingston Whig-Standard)

  • DJ "Donnovan" Bennett had a piece on Ryan Pyear, Michael Faulds and Jon Behie, all of whom are QBs turned OCs. Like Greg Layson, I missed it too the first time. (How come nobody wants to be the next Tommy Chang?)
  • Our Evan Daum has been running Canada West men's hockey previews over the last few days. (South Campus Sports)

  • Lakehead's men's team has five newcomers, including a pair of Fort William North Stars. (
  • UBC's men's team knocked off Trinity 3 to 0 Friday night; the Spartans played with 10 men for most of the second half. (Little Man on Campus)

  • "The Ravens have never beaten the Gee-Gees, who are ranked fifth nationally, in 16 years." Not what you want to read as a Raven when you give up the tying goal in the second half. (Ottawa Citizen)

  • Reading CIS coverage day after day, you see the same people's bylines, and most who cover the league are quite good. Ian Hamilton, his latest being a profile of Cougar keeper Michelle Anderson, is one of them. (Regina Leader-Post)

  • Thanks to Michael Grobe for passing along that the Queen's women's team will play an exhibition against McGill as part of CBC's first Sports Day In Canada--which for some reason involves sitting in front of the TV for six hours. (I kid.) The game makes up the last two hours of the broadcast day on CBC.
