Further still, Western played three other pre-season games vs. non-CIS teams and were beaten soundly in all 3.
The link I had for that one said they were tied:
In the rankings, losses to pro or NCAA teams won't hurt you. UOIT and SFX got a slight boost because of their wins against NCAA teams. That boost will dissipate as the season progresses and the teams have a better track record. Waterloo needs more games played. Yes, they are a team to watch since UQTR and Nipissing don't look half bad and they beat them both.
P.S. The same can be said for UBC. They had a win and SOL v Calgary. But Calgary have done reasonably well in 8 games against A level teams (Manitoba twice, Alberta twice, UNB twice, SFX and Acadia). UPEI also have 3 wins against A level teams, tempered by a loss to STU. So lots of teams coud easily be a week away from a promotion.
