2013 Yates Cup Preview

The Yates Cup is one of the oldest trophies in North American Sports and the fight to earn the right to lift the 106 year old trophy is always a good one. For the last two year the McMaster Marauders have been given the opportunity to call themselves the OUA champions but all that would change this year. After the loss of former Hec Crighton winner Kyle Quinlan the Marauders were not the same team that had dominated a conference for two years.

2013 OUA Playoff Preview

The CIS season began with a big question as the Big Four in the conferences were the main story that everyone was watching. The Calgary Dinos, Laval Rouge et Or, Acadia Axemen, and the McMaster Marauders had all won their conferences in the last two years and questions of three-peats were beginning to surface. Two of the teams had already been through the three-peat and had won plenty of titles ahead of last year. Two teams in the big four were looking to win the title for the third straight year and begin a time of dominance like in the other two conferences.

Is McMaster Done? (OUA Preview)

The OUA will see plenty of changes in 2013 as a new team enters the fold and the dominant team has been gutted. The Carlton Ravens will be the new team on the block as they return to the football field for the first time in 15 years. They will have a high hill to climb as they enter the biggest conference in the CIS and will have to compete with some very well established programs.
