OHT35 - Ode to the Dearly Departed - Part 2a

As the semi-final round wraps up, the OHT35 looks back at the 12 teams eliminated in the quarter-final rounds across the CIS. This post will deal with the top 6 of those, who ranked between #8 and #20.

Here is the chart with a second row added for their playoff record and revised season totals.

The Thundermutts had the toughest schedule in the CIS. With the OUA's imbalanced schedule, this is always a distinct possibility. Also, in the OUA-E interlock they drew two games each with Carleton and UQTR. Against the A and B+ teams in the OUA they had the best record of any OUA team, 8-5-1. Yet down the stretch when they started to play more B and C teams they were sputtering, getting mostly split weekends. So their loss to Waterloo was not exactly stunning.

This is a program in a state of turmoil. On October 18th a player revolt led to the firing of coach Joel Scherban. The Thundermutts were off to a 3-1 start in conference games at that point. Then on December 6th they kicked Thomas Frazee off the team. He had 7 goals and 15 assists in 16 games. This from a program which was once thought to be on the path to “permanent contender” status.

The defending national champion McGilligutties never seemed up to the task of coming even remotely close to defending their title. The inglorious defeat at the hands of a minnow like Nipissing emphasizes that McGill was not at all a contender in 2012-13. They did lose a lot of talent but the top programs always do so and use new recruits to stay at or near the top. The fact that McGill has fallen so far and so fast makes one ask if they were a top program or merely a one-hit wonder. Though they have been a regular participant at the U-Cup in recent years, that may be largely attributed to their relatively easy path. The OUA East is traditionally the weakest division/conference in the CIS. Of note, in 2011-12 the OUA East as a whole had its best season, and that was the one where McGill won the title. All eyes will be on the Redmen in 2013-14 to see which way they go.

The Jeremies were on the cusp of A-/B+ all season, like they often are. On balance, they had a pretty decent record. With a break or two they could have been in the semi-finals, and with a reasonable chance of victory and a place in the U-Cup. They had a pair of tough losses in their playoff loss to UPEI.

The Tweety-Birds had a respectable regular season record. They had a win, loss, and tie in a tour of NCAA teams. But in the end they were right where they have been for almost every one of the last 40 years – behind Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Calgary. They should be able to recruit a dominating roster every year. Will this happen now that they have turned thumbs down to the NCAA?

It appeared that maybe the Aigles had returned to their traditional national contender status in 2011-12. That was clearly premature. In the end they had a respectable record and provided a stiff challenge to Acadia in the playoffs. This is the lot of a mid-pack team in the AUS.

The former Yeomen were the epitome of an average team, which is what they have been for many years now. Their occasional wins over A teams were matched by their occasional losses to C teams. One would think that a big school like this could, like UBC, aspire to becoming a top level program.
