Writing about Friday night's game, Deux Fans describe the silence at Concordia for Montreal's 38-0 win (a worse crowd than McGill? ouch). Jeu blanc indeed. The only teams in that conference whom Montreal has yet to defeat by 24 or more points are McGill and Laval.
For those wondering if the Huskies might get it together this year, I'm afraid to say Calgary had more field goals than Saskatchewan had points. Johnny Mark, despite having two first names, connected on six, though none was longer than 36 yards.
Nobody from any Windsor newspaper went to watch the Lancers against the Lions, judging from the three sentences written about the game, the byline ("Posted by: Sports Desk"), and the irrelevant 2011 picture. In honour of their efforts, I'm not even going to put a "Lancers" tag on this post.
Similarly, sending two people to London for a big game would be too much for the Hamilton Spectator, so to illustrate a game in front of 11,000 people at TD Waterhouse Stadium in September 2012 they chose a file photo of one person at some unknown game at Ron Joyce Stadium in who-knows-what-year. (Aside from the dateline, it's not clear they sent anyone.) The Mustangs lost the game (33-27) and their QB, both of which Greg Marshall is taking rather seriously. We'll have more on this game tomorrow morning, the only game involving a top four team that wasn't a blowout.
Sweet Melinda, does any Ontario daily have photographers anymore? The Whig-Standard's gamer on the Golden Gaels' 32-25 win over Ottawa (closer than it seemed, probably) just uses a giant Queen's logo that is almost larger than the story. (Also, ten points for "local news" — you see the exact same stories at thewhig.com/sports as you do at lfpress.com/sports.) Now that the Gee-Gees have successfully stopped one thing their coach does they don't like, can someone work on "kicking a field goal from your opponent's 17 when down by 13 with under four minutes to go"?
In basketball news, the 2012-13 non-conference schedule opened this weekend, and in one result, the Lakehead men beat Brandon 83-56. No word if the fans up in Thunder Bay feasted on Bobcat meat for Homecoming.
