Linking the country: a pair of ugly losses out west, some Eric-Erik love, and an update on the Waterloo footballers

As you wonder how many times you can mock an upcoming opponent before the karma police take notice ...


  • That win over the Huskies is looking more and more like an outlier for the Thunderbirds. They didn't get in the red zone once against Regina on Friday night and lost 41-6. (Little Man on Campus) Also notable? Adrian Charles had a 90-yard TD rush, the second-longest in Rams history and the longest in ten years. (@reginacougars)

  • The 24-11 final score in the Carabins' win over McGill is somewhat misleading, considering that the Redmen started out with a 10-0 lead. (Rue Frontenac)

  • Alberta's loss to Saskatchewan sure sounds like it was ugly. (Edmonton Journal)

  • At least one Saskatchewan observer was mighty impressed with Jade Etienne's game in that win over the Bears. (Huskie Football Outsider)

  • Erik Glavic on Eric Dzwilewski (or "Junior"): "He’s really poised. I think that’s the biggest thing about him that’s really impressive to watch. He’s definitely looking like a — I wouldn’t say a fifth-year vet — but he’s looking like an experienced quarterback out there. He’s not making too many rookies mistakes. He’s done really well."

    And Junior on Glavic: "He’s kind of been the second quarterback coach and been the second set of eyes for me. If I have any problems on the sidelines, I go visit with Erik because he’s been there. He’s been in the same situations. He’s been on the field through the same stuff I have. So it’s a really big help. I just try to pick apart his brain and use the information he gives me and try to apply it on the field." (Calgary Sun)

  • Mount A receiver Nick Kukkonen is looking forward to playing in his hometown of Moncton today. (Times & Transcript)

  • The Globe and Mail checks in with "the longest training camp in history" in Waterloo, where it's found that players strongly dislike the UW administration, only eight current Warriors have CIS experience, and Dennis McPhee might have some recruiting trouble. (Globe and Mail)


  • The Regina women's team need to fill the setter role for a few weeks, and they're turning to a pair of rookies in Talayna Tremblay and Ceanna Lindquist. (Regina Leader-Post)


  • The Mustangs' men's roster is set. I guess we should get cracking on those basketball previews, eh? (Mustang Backcourt Club)

  • About 40% of top high school players are playing in CIS this year, if you're looking for a keeper in the 13th round in the MUBL this year. (


  • SMU and UNB battle for a tournament championship may just be preseason, but tell that to the players, specifically Kyle Bailey. Also note that we'll have live coverage of both games today (Guelph/PEI being the first one) with David Kilfoil on the liveblog. The Daily Gleaner

  • UOIT, the school for people who want to attend both a university and an institute of technology at the same time, is hoping to improve the Ridgebacks' men's hockey team some more after a 11-15-2 season last year. Coach Marlin Muylaert says UOIT has "perhaps the best athletic training facilities of any Ontario university." Anyone know if that's true? (North Bay Nugget)
