So you could almost safely add another four-year drought for the OUA.

The OUA (Lakehead, etc.) had its chance in T-Bay and didn't get it done.

They'll likely have to wait until Nipissing plays host —— or Montreal or Trois-Rivieres or London or Ottawa or wherever —— to have their best shot at it.

In the meantime, the OUA probably won't get much respect, not unless there are big changes ahead.
I would be surprised, but not shocked, to see an OUA team win at nationals. They are always guaranteed 2 places. And we have seen teams go 1-1, get lucky with a tie-breaker, and there they are in a winner-take-all final. Remember SMU's melt-down against the Urban Cowboys?

BTW, I have been disappointed with Lakehead's play at nationals. A few years back I would have bet they'd have a national title, and several more wins, at nationals.
