Linking the country: Vees upset Gees and various football injuries


  • With AUS teams losing by an aggregate score of 147-43 in the four games this weekend, Chris Cochrane can see why the Quebec conference reduced interlock to one game. (The Chronicle-Herald)

  • The Carleton football Ravens to play in 2012? They still need dressing rooms for both teams, a stadium upgrade, and millions of dollars, but if they can be competitive then I'm all for it. Compare this article with Neate's column from April to see how the football bid has progressed. (The Charlatan)

  • Add injury to insult for Queen's: Chris Ioannides' injury in the fourth means he might be out for a bit. (Kingston Whig-Standard)

  • Morris Dalla Costa is afraid that Western might struggle against Guelph if they play like they did against Windsor. Say what you will about Queen's and Western (and I will!), but at least they facilitate hand-wringing coverage when they lose, or win by an insufficient amount. (London Free Press)

  • Greg Layson has compiled video packages from the weekend on each OUA game. (Big Man on Campus)

  • Evan wasn't the only one impressed with Marc Mueller's day. (Regina Leader-Post)

  • Shawn Olson on UBC's loss: "You've got to work every day and I don't know if our guys did that this week. [...] A lot of people think football games are won or lost on Saturday. But I think we lost this one during the week." (Vancouver Sun)

  • Laurence Nixon left the game on crutches. Sprained ankle, which isn't so bad, but he might not dress Friday. (The Star-Phoenix)

  • The wisdom of the Deux Fans can't figure out why McGill's Austin Anderson (6 for 8 on field goals) was special teams player of the week in the Q instead of Jeff Thompson (223 yards on four returns, a conference record for yardage). (

  • Laurentian's women's team beat Carleton and Ottawa (both by 2-0, both at home), the latter losing for the first time in the (admittedly young) season. Based on the results from this year and last, the Gee-Gees were roughly 80-20 favourites in yesterday's game. Leanne Adams scored both goals in the upset, and Lisa Watson is quotable after the win. (Sudbury Star)

  • STU beat UNB 6-2, then lost the next day 7 to 5. But as long as UNB keeps beating everyone else, that first game will help the Tommies in the RPI in the early going. (The Daily Gleaner)

  1. STU beat UQTR, UNB, they wish they could beat them by that score.
