USask announced their dates for UCup as March 14-17.

This is a week earlier than the last 5 years, so - the second half will be a bit shorter (16-12 split - my guess) which makes the first half more important this year.

Also means the season will start a week early - which will result in earlier exh. games (or some teams may skip a few exh. games given time and scheduling).

They could reduce the playoff rounds to all best of 3, but with the AUS getting the wildcard - this would implie a best of 5 in the second round.

Just an observation. We'll have to wait and see come July/Aug when the schedule is posted.
