Weekend Preview

September 10, 2010

EXHIBITION GAMES START TONIGHT



News is hard to come by for the opening weekend of exhibition games. The Bisons usually start with an intersquad game where I can see a complete roster at least. Right now, the roster page for 2010-11 is not being updated.

The Bisons are one of four teams visiting Regina's new digs. (The others are Sask and Portage College from the ACAC.) Calgary and Lethbridge play a home-and-home. UBC and the Evil Monkeys will be at home watching Family Guy re-runs, I guess. Portage is a 3rd year team based in Lac La Biche, Alberta. They split a pair of games last weekend against Fort McMurray of the AJHL.

I am hopeful that LeagueStat will give full rosters etc. after the games. Sometimes the U of R was slow to provide updates last year.

Also, the Canada West site seems to be undergoing a transformation. Last night a new format was there, but it is gone today. Hoefully this means that a new site will be launched only when it is full ready to go. Unlike what the CIS site did last year.

WEEKEND LINKS
  • The news around the CIS has tailed off a bit lately. It seems everybody is just waiting for the games to start at long last. But here's what's out there as we head into the weekend.
    SOUTH CAMPUS SPORTS: LOOK AT SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES - Coach Adolph claims the Banjo-Dogs lacked "character" in last year's playoff loss. Hmm, sounds like cliche time in the pre-season. Never trust a guy named Adolph.

    SOUTH CAMPUS SPORTS: LOOK AT REGINA COUGARS - The Banjo-Cats have had a big turnover but have also lost some keys players from last year, including their 2nd and 4th top scorers, goaltender Brant Hilton, and leader Caine Pearpoint.

    U OF R PREVIEW STORY - There is a lot about the new digs. Geez, after getting paved highways 3 years ago, things are looking up in Hillbillyville.

    SOUTH CAMPUS SPORTS: WOOLGER GOING FROM EVIL MONKEYS TO UNB - After getting a 4 year degree he was off to get an MBA at UNB. But not so fast!

    DAILY GLEANER: WOOLGER GOING BACK! - This is also a good preview of the UNB Varsity Reds. It is easy-come-easy-go when players are not under contract.

    LEAGUESTAT - The site looks ready-to-go with updates and stats. So far there are advance links for only the two Regina games this weekend.
