The Dominance Continues (49th Vanier Cup Review)

The Laval Rouge et Or would come into the 49th Vanier Cup as the clear favorites and as the most dominant team in the CIS. They have been a team that it seems can never be beat as they have only lost a handful of times since they won their first Vanier Cup in 1999. Since the Université Laval first established their football program in 1995 they have quickly become a powerhouse. Winning 7 Vanier Cups and 11 RSEQ titles since they began the Rouge et Or are the model for how to build a football program.

49th Vanier Cup Preview

In the year of the Big Four it seems only fitting that the only two big four teams remain fighting to the last game of the season. The Calgary Dinos and the Laval Rouge et Or are the two teams that have survived through the CIS season to earn their spot in the Vanier Cup and it seems no surprise that they are left as the only two teams left. The season would begin with the stories of the Big Four teams who were all going for at least three conference titles in a row.

Before any team could punch their ticket to Quebec City for the championship they would have to go through the Uteck and Mitchell Bowls. That would bring about the Bowl week in CIS football and a week that perfectly expresses the system that the CIS uses to ensure the two best teams in the country make it to the championship.

2013 CIS Preview: National Outlook

College Football in the states is constantly in the news with lawsuits and the constant debate over the bowl system. In Canada it is quite different as the system is what many wish the NCAA was. The playoff system in the CIS is a great one but it does not prevent one team from dominating most years.

2012 CIS Football Preview

Last year in August I began writing my 2011 CIS Preview with the title CIS Keeps Getting Better as I looked to the future of a league ready to break out. I did not think that 2011 would be the year that the CIS captured the hearts and minds of football fans but I did believe that the CIS was a great league ready to be noticed. In 2011 they showed exactly that as the 2011 CIS season was a great one.
