2015 CanWest Playoff Preview

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

2015 CIS Football Preview: Can Change Continue to Rule?

The CIS has been a league where top teams have continued to dominate their respective conferences without much room for new teams to make an impact.

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.

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 5)

This week the CIS would see a number of important games for all of the conferences as the top teams looked to separate themselves from the pack. The top teams in each conference would use this week to show that they are the team to beat in their conference. Some teams would continue their dominance in the conference racking up another win.

CIS Football Report (Week 4)

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.

Calgary’s 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.

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.

CIS Football Report (Week 8)

Then there was one with the CIS season wrapping up for most of the conferences next week and the OUA this week there is only one undefeated team left. After the loss by Laval two weeks ago and a battle between Saint Mary’s and Montreal for a rules violation Calgary and Western were the only two teams left without a loss. This week that all changed as one of the two teams took their first loss on the season as the #1 ranked Western Mustangs lost in their final week of the regular season.

CIS Football Report (Week 3)

The CIS went into the third week of the season with the top teams asserting their dominance over the competition. This was true of the Western Mustangs as they took on their equals from last year in the Ottawa Gee Gees. Last year the Gee Gees were one of the best teams in the nation and won the OUA regular season title. As they marched towards the Vanier Cup they met the Western Mustangs in the Yates Cup final. The Gee Gees season ended when the Mustangs beat them in the Yates Cup. This year the Mustangs are favorites to win the OUA but the Gee Gees were hanging on through two weeks of the season.
