most coaches would accept playing .500 on the road especially after hours on the bus playing in an environment where there are nuances to the rules that your players have never experienced. Some of the OUA teams still haven't decided on final rosters so these ex games will see players who may not be there when the weekend is over and some regulars will be sitting.
UofA and Sask may not feel that spending dollars on cross border ex games are worth the investment. For them just to get to the border is 4-5 hour bus trip, then where to, another 5 to Denver or Colorado Springs and don't forget the return trip. Bus rides suck, especially when you spend over 20 hours in one on a weekend.
