I'm very happy with where they are at the break - with seven rookies (not counting Vinneau & Kewin) and to be 1pt out of first - that's awesome.

The big difference from last year is the drop in the standings for SMU and SFX who were 3rd/4th last year with 23 & 20pts - a far cry from the 13 & 15 they have this season. That has to be the biggest difference this season - how the middle pack is clumped together - 4 teams within 2pts. A poor weekend could see you drop from 3rd to 6th.

STU has been a lot better, but remain on the outside looking in. UPEI is where they were last year at 6th with 13pts, but Dal was at 12 while STU this season is at 9. I don't see them winning enough games on their own to get into 6th - they will have to hope someone falters.

With one card left - I'd like to see a DMan, we have enough forwards.

Now that all of the rookies having played in each arena and add a healthly Houde-Caron, Carroll and Robertson - the second half should be good.

I wish Vinneau had played against Dal - if this is the next #1, what are they waiting for?
