    Last year's tournament was the best one ever and im certain this year will not disappoint either.

    The women's tournament is expanding to 16 teams next season so im sure the men's will follow suit. (Congrats to the simon frazier women's squad forwinning the national championship).

    So this will be the last CIS Final 8 (and coincidentally just the 3rd down from 10 teams a few years back [​IMG]).

    I haven't been following it much this year because I'm not too close anymore with anyone who plays. I caught a bit of the Western/Ottawa game when Iwas working out, not a great game. I didn't realize Calgary was so good this year and their game with UBC should be good. If I'm watching TV whenit's on I'll check it out.

    How is he telling ducktales? I'm pretty sure CIS schools dont give full scholarships. So whats the the big deal if they offer for you to playthey really arent giving you much anyways.

    get the hell outta here with that.

    you're pretty much always wrong arent you? [​IMG].

    if more canadians had pride in their national product then Canada weouldnt be in such dire straits in every sport that isnt hockey.

    Carleton beat Alabama last season. and it took Illinois overtime to beat them.

    Running with power conference teams is damn respectable considering the vastly smaller budget and effort put into developing local talent.
