RSEQness: QUFL All-Stars announced

Well there's the new name: RSEQness can be looked at as "Our Sickness" which is, obviously University Sport. On tap this week: the QUFL announced its all-stars, previewing the playoffs and our weekly look at women's hockey.

Our basketball previews will be up next week just in time for next week's season openers. We'll take a quick look at the men's side. Concordia and Laval both opened the season ranked (No. 5 for Concordia, No. 7 for Laval) on the men's side. Laval is No. 8 on the women's side and is the only Quebec team ranked although Bishop's received some votes.

Status quo last week, as there were no big surprises. Sherbrooke beat McGill and paired with Bishop's loss, Sherbrooke will get a chance to avenge a close week one loss in the QUFL semi-final at CEPSUM. In the other semi-final Bishop's will try and get to the Dunsmore Cup and through Laval at PEPS. It will not be an easy task, and I think everyone would be shocked if Bishop's could pull it off - whether or not Jesse Andrews is healthy enough to play.

All-Stars announced
Not really any surprises in the announcements. Laval led the way with 12 all-stars (counting Christopher Milo twice as punter and place kicker), including three of the five unanimous selections. Montreal and Sherbrooke had 6, Bishop's and Concordia had 2 and McGill 1.

The only thing I can't see is how Bruno Prud'homme tied Jean-Philippe Shoiry. Shoiry was the best quarterback in the Q, and while Prud'homme was good, he wasn't better than Shoiry.

  1. "It will not be an easy task" (for Bishop's to beat Laval at PEPS without Andrews and Ngoyi) is quite an understatement IMHO. Here's a more realistic formulation: It would be a miracle...

    BTW, even when counting Milo twice, Laval has 11 all-star nominations (for 10 players).

  2. I was being a little sarcastic when I said that. I did write that everyone would be shocked. Maybe I should have been more obvious.

    And as for the all-stars, I must have counted Milo twice, and then thought I only counted him once.
