Revenge for THE Dynasty (48th Vanier Cup Review)

The Laval Rouge et Or went into the 48th Vanier Cup with a very clear goal in mind and that was to get some revenge for their loss in the 47th Vanier Cup a year ago. They would be in tough against the best team in the country though with Kyle Quinlan leading the McMaster Marauders to an undefeated season. The Marauders and Rouge et Or had met before in the 47th Vanier Cup in 2011 in what had become known as the Greatest Game Ever Played.

Déjà vu at its Best (48th Vanier Cup Preview)

The 2012 CIS season has seen one thing dominate the season and that is the consistency to which the season has played out. Last year saw the Calgary Dinos, Acadia Axemen, Laval Rouge et Or, and McMaster Marauders all make the National playoffs. This year it was the same as all four teams repeated as champions in their conference. The similarities continued as the Mitchell and Uteck Bowls saw the McMaster Marauders and Laval Rouge et Or take the wins.

As the CIS season came to a close there seemed to be one major theme as consistency ruled the day and the year in the CIS. For the first time ever all four Conference Champions would repeat sending the exact same four teams to the National Bowls. Calgary, McMaster, Laval, and Acadia would all return to the National Bowls this year with two teams looking to continue the trend and two looking to end it.

The CIS is one of the two college football leagues in North America although it rarely gets noticed. The NCAA is the one league that overshadows the CIS every year as they are bigger and have a lot more money. The TV deals are larger and the players are the future of the NFL in the NCAA with college football bigger in many places than professional football.
