CIS Football Report (2013 Season in Review)

The CIS Season is officially over and the hardware has been handed out with not a whole lot changing. The season began with the Big Four and talk of the four repeat champions as questions arose as to who could continue their runs in their conferences. Changes would be seen but in the end the result was much the same as everyone had seen before. Two of the big four would last to the end of the season and both were the two teams that had much more than a three-peat at stake.

CIS Football Report (CIS Semi-Finals Week)

The CIS season is at an end with only one more game left before the best team in the country is determined at the 49th Vanier Cup. 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 Bowl Preview

The CIS season is almost over and four teams continue to play as the National Playoffs begin with the National Bowls. The Uteck and the Mitchell Bowl are set and ready to produce the potential Vanier Cup Champions. When the Vanier Cup was established in 1965 the top two teams in the country were invited to the championship

2013 Loney Bowl Preview

One of the Big Four in the league has fallen and in their place is another powerhouse that is used to winning games. The Saint Mary’s Huskies have regularly challenged the Acadia Axemen for the AUS title year after year. They are a part of one of the biggest battles in the CIS with the Huskies and the Axemen continually up for the Jewett Trophy. You have to go back to 1997 to find another team that won the Jewett Trophy not named the Huskies or the Axemen.

2013 AUS Playoff Preview

The AUS conference has never been the most powerful conference in the CIS as they have fallen behind the bigger conferences. Still the AUS contains teams that exude the true east coast mentality. They never give up and they continue to fight even though the odds are against them and they always seem to be able to keep people wondering if they could bring an upset. They have had moments where they have been at the top of the CIS football world and won the Vanier Cup but recently it has not been in the cards for them.

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.

Can the Atlantic Provide Parity? (AUS Preview)

The AUS is the smallest conference in the CIS and therefore is more likely to be the conference that can provide a new champion. For the last three years the Acadia Axemen have been the rulers of the East coast but they have not been that dominant team like the other three. With only four teams in the conference the AUS is an interesting conference full of possibilities to win.

CIS Football Report (Semi-Finals)

CIS Football was officially in playoff mode this week as every conference held the semi-finals of their conference. It is the best time of year as the best teams face off with everything on the line. If they lose they go home with nothing but a playoff spot to boast about but if they win they live to fight another day in the CIS season. The regular season doesn’t matter in the playoffs besides the deciding what field you play on.

Being an athlete is a rough profession at any level but in football making the jump from college to professional is especially difficult. Players who make that jump realize fast that the next level features the biggest, strongest, fastest, and smartest football players in the sport. For some this can be extremely overwhelming as they are put in a situation that they have never been in before.

CIS Football Report (Week 6)

The season continues to draw to a close as there are now only three games left for most conferences except the OUA who have two. Teams continue to fight for a playoff spot and a chance at extending their season. As week six finished the playoff picture became a little clearer as teams began to take their spots in the next season.
