Did not read the article until now.
I think the move makes the OUA West tougher than last year. UOIT was near the bottom. Toronto had moments in the Top 10 last year, and Ryerson has had good recruiting with its new facilities, it just needs time to reap the benefits.
This is a major change in schedule as well.
You now play:
-9 home games (one against each divisional opponent)
-9 away games (one against each divisional opponent)
-10 crossover games (one against each cross-divisional opponent)
This is somewhat interesting, as now every team in the OUA will be play every other team in the OUA at least once. This also will add travel for most teams, with the travel zone potentially encompassing Thunder Bay in the North West, to Winsdor in the South West to Trois-Rivieres in the East (depending on whether you are home/away).
