So long as no objects, it seems best to put our shallow, fairly accurate observations about Canadian university football over at The CIS Blog.
The big news today, since it's always has to be about Western, is that the Mustangs are 0-2 for the first time since 1970 after a 22-15 loss to McMaster. Officiating, turnovers and the absence of star safety Matt Carapella will probably be part of Western's spin control, but it did seem like Greg Marshall didn't coach aggressively enough early on when Mac was very shaky.
How's this for a mixed metaphor? The 'Stangs had an early 12-3 lead, but were leaking oil from the first quarter on since it took its foot off the gas, not challenging the young Marauders secondary after getting an early 65-yard TD pass.
Queen's is in tough tomorrow vs. Guelph, so it seems best to keep a humble exterior. Still, Western plays the Ottawa Gee-Gees, Guelph and Windsor in the next three weeks.
