2015 CanWest Playoff Preview

The CanWest was much the same as the RSEQ with one dominant team sitting at the top for years.

2013 Hardy Cup Preview

The theme of dominance in the CIS can be nailed down to two conferences that have seen the same teams raise their championship trophies. As the OUA and AUS continue to exchange their champions the RSEQ and CanWest conferences have seen long reigns from their champions. The OUA and the AUS would begin to look like their neighbours but this year will see new champions rather than a three-peat for either team.

2013 CanWest Playoff Preview

In the CanWest this year it was a lot of the same story as one of the Big Four teams would return to the top. The Calgary Dinos have won the Hardy Trophy for the last five years and have been the most dominant team in the West. They would once again see themselves at the top of the CanWest standings as they go for their sixth straight title. This year their dominance was not as for sure as it used to be with some big players leaving the program including star running back Steven Lumbala.

CIS Football Report (Week 6)

The CIS has been ruled by the teams known as the Big Four in the last two years with four teams taking over the league. These four teams have been have won their respective conferences in the last two years and are the only teams to see the National Playoffs for the last two years. They have been dominant teams that have been the class of their conferences and the class of the CIS. As they entered another year the questions arose about how exactly they would come out in the new season.

The CIS season continues on and the teams are beginning to figure out where they stand among their conferences. The only problem for many of the teams this year is that there is not a lot that has been figured out yet. The CIS season has seen very few teams break away as the season looks to be one of the more even years in the league.

CIS Football would get back into full swing this past weekend when two conferences joined the OUA in beginning their season. The second week of the CIS season is more the official start of the season than the week before. The imbalance of the conferences in the CIS have made the starting day for the league a murky one.

Calgary‚Äôs Conference? (CanWest Preview)

The theme of the season id the dominance of the top four teams in the country and one of the best for almost half a decade has been the Calgary Dinos. The Dinos have won 4 Hardy Cups in the last four years as one of the most dominant teams in the CIS. They have done some great things and have shown how to sustain their success. They are one of the few true dynasties in the CIS with a four year run that will come under fire this year. Now they are hoping to get back to the top and unseat the recent dynasty. As is with most college teams a class can only last 4 years and that is where the Dinos are.

Teams continue to fight for a playoff spot and a chance at extending their season.

Can Calgary Remain the Class of the CanWest? (Hardy Cp Preview)

This year in the CanWest Conference saw familiar faces at the top with the Calgary Dinos and the Saskatchewan Huskies in the top two positions. The domination of the CanWest conference looked to continue for these two teams as the only competition for first place was each other for the 3 years in a row. It did not work out that way as Saskatchewan was taken out of the second spot by the UBC Thunderbirds who surprised everyone with their great season.
