2010 Official Hollywood Top 27

Post by Hollywood2 » Mon Sep 06, 2010 9:03 pm

OFFICIAL HOLLYWOOD TOP 27 - WEEK 1

I know, I know. You have been waiting impatiently for this list. You have cursed Waterloo for making this a 2-stage opening week. You have cursed Toronto and Windsor for their evening game. You had to satisfy yourself with watching the CFL's Greatest Team soundly defeat the Aggros. Your patience is about to be rewarded.

STEP 1: WEEK 1 RESULTS
  • Non-conference games:
    McGill 40, Toronto 17
    Saskatchewan 40, Western Ontario 12
    Sherbrooke 41, Ottawa 0
    Concordia 40, Guelph 23
    Calgary 20, Alberta 14
    Laval 76, York 0

    Tuesday, August 31, 2010
    Ottawa 23, Windsor 14
    McMaster 23, Queen's 18

    Wednesday, September 1, 2010
    Guelph 15, Toronto 13
    W. Ontario 46, Laurier 1

    Thursday, September 2, 2010
    Montreal 33, Sherbrooke 29

    Friday, September 3, 2010
    Regina 45, Manitoba 11

    Saturday, September 4, 2010
    Alberta 36, UBC 28
    Concordia 17, Bishop's 14
    Saskatchewan 34, Calgary 13

    Sunday, September 5, 2010
    Laval 50, McGill 9

    Monday, September 6, 2010
    Guelph 26, York 2
    Ottawa 20, W. Ontario 19
    McMaster 26, Laurier 24
    Windsor 26, Toronto 17
STEP 2: REGIONAL RANKINGS

The rankings show each team's conference record followed by their overall record. The games marked # are non-conference games. The games marked * are against a jabroni.
  • CANADA WEST

    1 Saskatchewan (1-0, 2-0) beat WO# Calg
    2 Regina (1-0) beat Man
    3 Calgary (0-1, 1-1) beat Alta#; lost to Sask
    4 Alberta (1-0, 1-1) beat UBC; lost to Calg#
    5 UBC (0-1) lost to Alta
    6 Manitoba (0-1) lost to Reg
    7 Simon Fraser (0-0)

    It will take at least one more week to put week #1 into context. Taking margins of victory into account, one has to put Regina ahead of Calgary. (Even though I very much believe that will change.) Simon Fraser looks to be cellar-dwellers, don't they?

    ONTARIO

    1 McMaster (2-0) beat Que Laur
    2 Ottawa (2-0, 2-1) beat Wind WO; lost to Sher#
    3 W. Ontario (1-1, 1-2) beat Laur; lost to Sask# Ott
    4 Queen's (0-1) lost to McM
    5 Laurier (0-2) lost to WO McM
    6 Guelph (2-0, 2-1) beat Tor* York*; lost to Conc#
    7 Windsor (1-1) beat Tor*; lost to Ott
    8 Toronto (0-2, 0-3) lost to McG# Gue Wind
    9 Waterloo (0-0)
    10 York (0-1, 0-2) lost to Lav# Gue

    Thus far only Toronto and York have full-fledged jabroni status. Of note, Guelph and Windsor are hereby declared to be ham-n-eggers. That means they could become jabronis or move into the blob any time.

    You will note Waterloo's presence. Why not include them? They are supposedly only “suspended” for one year. And unless York improves, I think they'll finish 9th, or even 8th, in the conference. Maybe their inclusion here will assure them of returning.

    Now, on to the non-jabronis. What a bizarre set of results. The Urban Cowboys were crushed by Saskatchewan. Ottawa were obliterated by Sherbrooke. So, maybe they just aren't as good as McMaster, Laurier, or Queen's. Not quite. McMaster beat 'em both in close games. So the same Laurier team to be crushed by the Urban Cowboys (those who were crushed by Sask and lost to an Ottawa team steamrolled by Sherbrooke) could easily have beaten The Big Macs. So, in sum, these 5 teams all look like they belong in The Blob. Perhaps Ottawa's result against Sherbrooke and Laurier's result against the Urban Cowboys will be viewed as their “Mulligan” once the season unfolds. Time will tell.

    QUEBEC/ATLANTIC

    1 Laval (1-0, 2-0) beat York*# McG
    2 Montreal (1-0) beat Sher
    3 Sherbrooke (0-1, 1-1) beat Ott#; lost to Mtl
    4 Concordia (1-0, 2-0) beat Gue# Bish
    5 Bishop's (0-1) lost to Conc
    6 McGill (0-1, 1-1) beat Tor*#; lost to Lav
    n/r Saint Mary's (0-0)
    n/r St. Francis-Xavier (0-0)
    n/r Acadia (0-0)
    n/r Mount Allison (0-0)

    The Q teams racked up big wins against the O in pre-season and so it seems that the conference is uniformly strong as expected. McGill lost their jabroni status last year so Laval's thumping of them has to impress. I gave Sherbrooke the nod over Concordia basically due to their margin over Ottawa. Otherwise, the teams are tightly bunched and subject to significant change in coming weeks.
STEP 3: THE BLEND
  • 1 Saskatchewan (1-0, 2-0) beat WO# Calg
    2 Laval (1-0, 2-0) beat York*# McG


    3 Montreal (1-0) beat Sher
    4 Regina (1-0) beat Man
    5 Sherbrooke (0-1, 1-1) beat Ott#; lost to Mtl
    6 Calgary (0-1, 1-1) beat Alta#; lost to Sask
    7 Alberta (1-0, 1-1) beat UBC; lost to Calg#
    8 Concordia (1-0, 2-0) beat Gue# Bish
    9 McMaster (2-0) beat Que Laur


    10 Ottawa (2-0, 2-1) beat Wind WO; lost to Sher#
    11 W. Ontario (1-1, 1-2) beat Laur; lost to Sask# Ott
    12 Bishop's (0-1) lost to Conc
    13 UBC (0-1) lost to Alta
    14 McGill (0-1, 1-1) beat Tor*#; lost to Lav
    15 Queen's (0-1) lost to McM
    16 Manitoba (0-1) lost to Reg
    17 Laurier (0-2) lost to WO McM


    18 Guelph (2-0, 2-1) beat Tor* York*; lost to Conc#
    19 Windsor (1-1) beat Tor*; lost to Ott


    20 Toronto (0-2, 0-3) lost to McG# Gue Wind
    21 Waterloo (0-0)
    22 York (0-1, 0-2) lost to Lav#, Gue
    23 Simon Fraser (0-0)


    n/r Saint Mary's (0-0)
    n/r St. Francis-Xavier (0-0)
    n/r Acadia (0-0)
    n/r Mount Allison (0-0)


    NOTE: The AUS teams will join the rankings next week once their teams have played. To help everybody understand the rankings, I have compiled this handy reference so that you can see who beat whom. Of course, in time it is hard to blend all chains without generating inconsistencies. For example, A will beat B, B will beat C, and C will beat A. In that case a team would be ranked behind a team they have beaten. For now, that need not happen.

Regina, Sherbrooke, Alberta, Concordia. Something's messed up in the calculations. No respect for OUA. The Rams victory over Bisons certainly doesn't catapult them into the top 5.

Don't understand the inclusion of SFU & Waterloo. Is it a joke? Why not include Carleton & Dalhousie as well?

The OUA had a problematic non-conference season this year, going 0-5 with one-sided losses across the board. One of their pre-season favourites, Ottawa, losing 41-0 to Q league also-rans Sherbrooke had to raise eyebrows. (BTW, Ottawa beat them in the 2009 pre-season.) Right now, only McMaster has an unblemished record.

As for SFU and Waterloo, why not leave them in just for fun? SFU can face the inglorious position of being last every week. And without playing, Waterloo could still out-perform York. :rotf:

Mac should be ranked highest since they didn't play a pre-season match? The pre-season is of course interesting since we do have few opportunities to compare conferences but being pre-season and with OUA having few training days before playing and few days before opening season, they count for even less than even a normal pre-season game would.

SFU doesn't belong in the CIS and no longer belongs in the same thread as Canadian football.

OFFICIAL HOLLYWOOD TOP 27 - WEEK 2

While everybody figures that after this week's results a lottery might work best, the OHT27 has made sense of it all and things pretty much fall into place. Of course, the AUS makes no sense and a case can be made to put their four teams virtually anywhere.

It should also be remembered that places 3-16 are mili-rankings apart and those teams could experience major shifts next week.

For those who want last week's results, see the OHT27 #1.

STEP 1: WEEK 2 RESULTS
  • September 10, 2010
    UBC 31 Saskatchewan 12
    Calgary 24 Regina 21

    September 11, 2010
    Acadia 17 Saint Mary's 7
    Bishop's 26 McGill 19
    Western Ontario 50 McMaster 19
    Montreal 29 Concordia 8
    Ottawa 45 York 3
    Mount Allison 19 St Francis-Xavier 6
    Alberta 31 Manitoba 6
    Laval 36 Sherbrooke 6
    Laurier 37 Toronto 6

    September 12, 2010
    Queen's 40 Windsor 7
STEP 2: REGIONAL RANKINGS

The rankings show each team's conference record followed by their overall record. The games marked # are non-conference games. The games marked * games against a jabroni.
  • CANADA WEST

    1 Alberta (2-0, 2-1) beat UBC Man; lost to Calg#
    2 UBC (1-1) beat Sask; lost to Alta
    3 Saskatchewan (1-1, 2-1) beat WO# Calg; lost to UBC
    4 Calgary (1-1, 2-1) beat Alta# Reg; lost to Sask
    5 Regina (1-1) beat Man; lost to Calg
    6 Manitoba (0-2) lost to Reg Alta
    7 Simon Fraser (0-0)

    When a pile of teams are tightly bunched one would think the rankings could be all over the map. However, these rankings surprisingly fell into shape quite nicely. The only result not consistent with these rankings is the non-conference win by Calgary over Alberta.

    ONTARIO

    1 Ottawa (3-0, 3-1) beat Wind* WO York*; lost to Sher#
    2 W. Ontario (2-1, 2-2) beat Laur McM; lost to Sask# Ott
    3 McMaster (2-1) beat Que Laur; lost to WO
    4 Queen's (1-1) beat Wind*; lost to McM
    5 Laurier (1-2) beat Tor*; lost to WO McM
    6 Guelph (2-0, 2-1) beat Tor* York*; lost to Conc#
    7 Windsor (1-2) beat Tor*; lost to Ott Que
    8 Waterloo (0-0)
    9 Toronto (0-3, 0-4) lost to McG# Gue Wind Laur
    10 York (0-2, 0-3) lost to Lav# Gue Ott

    The OUA surprisingly falls into place quite nicely as well. There are NO results which are inconsistent with these rankings. Windsor got themselves a reservation at Hotel Jabroni. Toronto's wipeout put them below Waterloo.

    QUEBEC/ATLANTIC

    1 Laval (2-0, 3-0) beat York*# McG Sher
    2 Montreal (2-0) beat Sher Conc
    3 Sherbrooke (0-2, 1-2) beat Ott#; lost to Mtl Lav
    4 Concordia (1-1, 2-1) beat Gue# Bish; lost to Mtl
    5 Acadia (1-0) beat SMU
    6 Bishop's (1-1) beat McG; lost to Conc
    7 Mount Allison (1-0) beat SFX
    8 Saint Mary's (0-1) lost to Aca
    9 McGill (0-2, 1-2) beat Tor*#; lost to Lav Bish
    10 St. Francis-Xavier (0-1) lost to MtA

    This week's results warranted no shift in the Q rankings. But the A?!?!?!?! Could it be jabroni-free? Or is it Jabronis Unanimous? If ever the OHT27 needed an interlock weekend, this is it. Feel free to disagree with my AUS rankings.
STEP 3: THE BLEND
  • 1 Laval (2-0, 3-0) beat York*# McG Sher
    2 Montreal (2-0) beat Sher Conc


    3 Alberta (2-0, 2-1) beat UBC Man; lost to Calg#

    24 Waterloo (0-0)
    25 Toronto (0-3, 0-4) lost to McG# Gue Wind Laur
    26 York (0-2, 0-3) lost to Lav# Gue Ott
    27 Simon Fraser (0-0)


    NOTE: To help everybody understand the rankings, I have compiled this handy reference so that you can see who beat whom. So far it is only necessary to have one result which is out of synch with the rankings, that being Calgary's non-conference win over Alberta.
    Calgary > Alberta

Enjoy reading these. Still think you place too much emphasis on meaningless pre-season games. How can you justify putting Sherbrooke at number 7 in the country and ahead of Concordia and Bishop's in QUFL?

OFFICIAL HOLLYWOOD TOP 27 - WEEK 3

Well, I guess we know that if Albert Einstein would assure us that his latest theory is:

Q > A

And that if Ines Sainz was Shaw TV's new sideline reporter we would see that the CW is tighter than her pants.
Image

Meanwhile, Ontario makes one think of Sheila Copps.
Image

For past reference check OHT #1 and OHT #2

STEP 1: WEEK 2 RESULTS
  • September 17, 2010
    Concordia 34 McGill 29
    Sherbrooke 44 Mount Allison 10

    September 18, 2010
    Montreal 27 St Francis-Xavier 10
    Ottawa 43 McMaster 35
    Laval 45 Saint Mary's 7
    Bishop's 31 Acadia 16
    Toronto 24 York 19
    Guelph 21 Queen's 15
    Calgary 23 Alberta 14
    Manitoba 40 UBC 17
    Western Ontario 30 Windsor 15
    Regina 37 Saskatchewan 26
STEP 2: REGIONAL RANKINGS

The rankings show each team's conference record followed by their overall record. The games marked # are non-conference games. The games marked * are games against a jabroni.
  • CANADA WEST

    1 Calgary (2-1, 3-1) beat Alta# Reg Alta; lost to Sask
    2 Alberta (2-1, 2-2) beat UBC Man; lost to Calg# Calg
    3 Regina (2-1) beat Man Sask; lost to Calg
    4 Manitoba (1-2) beat UBC; lost to Reg Alta
    5 UBC (1-2) beat Sask; lost to Alta Man
    6 Saskatchewan (1-2, 2-2) beat WO# Calg; lost to UBC Reg
    7 Simon Fraser (0-0)

    This is one crazy season in the CW. What strikes me as odd is the amount of one-sided games so far. The other thing is that these rankings render only one game as an odd-ball, that being Saskatchewan's opening night win over Calgary. Otherwise, every game is totally consistent with these rankings.

    In addition, I looked at each group of 3 tied teams. Logically, the 2-1 teams would have to be ahead of the 1-2 teams.

    Calgary beat Alberta and Regina, and Regina and Alberta have yet to play. But they both have wins over Manitoba and losses to Calgary. The difference is that Alberta also beat UBC, Regina also beat Saskatchewan, and UBC beat Saskatchewan. So Alberta gets the nod for 2nd.

    Of the 1-2 teams, Manitoba beat UBC who beat Saskatchewan, and Manitoba and Saskatchewan have not played. So those 3 also fall into order, and there's your CW rankings, the same by either method.

    ONTARIO

    1 Ottawa (4-0, 4-1) beat Wind* WO York* McM; lost to Sher#
    2 W. Ontario (3-1, 3-2) beat Laur McM Wind*; lost to Sask# Ott
    3 McMaster (2-2) beat Que Laur; lost to WO Ott
    4 Guelph (3-0, 3-1) beat Tor* York* Que; lost to Conc#
    5 Queen's (1-2) beat Wind*; lost to McM Gue
    6 Laurier (1-2) beat Tor*; lost to WO McM
    7 Windsor (1-3) beat Tor*; lost to Ott Que WO
    8 Waterloo (0-0)
    9 Toronto (1-3, 1-4) beat York*; lost to McG# Gue Wind Laur
    10 York (0-3, 0-4) lost to Lav# Gue Ott Tor*

    The OUA has fallen into place. And the 9 teams now neatly fall into 3 groups of 3, with 3 teams in The Blob, 3 ham-n-eggers, and 3 jabronis. No result so far in consistent with these rankings.

    This week's manhandling by the Q of the A mirrored the pre-season manhandling by the Q of the O. I have to remark how disappointed I was with Queen's performance against Guelph. Right now the conference is being dominated by teams who were picked to shreds by average to below average Q and CW teams.

    And in the Battle of the Big Lemon, aka The Jabroni Bowl, we all have to congratulate Toronto for beating York. I bet Yonge Street is going nuts tonight.

    QUEBEC/ATLANTIC

    1 Laval (3-0, 3-0) beat York*# McG Sher StM
    2 Montreal (3-0) beat Sher Conc SFX
    3 Concordia (2-1, 3-1) beat Gue# Bish McG; lost to Mtl
    4 Sherbrooke (1-2, 2-2) beat Ott# MtA; lost to Mtl Lav
    6 Bishop's (2-1) beat McG Aca; lost to Conc
    9 McGill (0-3, 1-3) beat Tor*#; lost to Lav Bish Conc
    5 Acadia (1-1) beat SMU; lost to Bish
    7 Mount Allison (1-1) beat SFX; lost to Sher
    8 Saint Mary's (0-2) lost to Aca Lav
    10 St. Francis-Xavier (0-2) lost to MtA Mtl

    The men defeated the boys this weekend. I guess one cannot be disappointed by Acadia and Mount Allison losing away. McGill's close losses to Bishop's and now Concordia suggest some upward potential from them. So the Q, for the first time, has places #1 through #6, and the A gets places #7 to #10. So while the A has no jabronis, they are all ham-n-eggers.

    We'll have to see how the A teams do against one another to see who can move into The Blob. In fairness to them, their results now are strikingly similar to those achieved by Western Ontario, Ottawa, and Guelph against similar opposition in the pre-season.

    One other factor affecting the rankings is that being whupped by Laval does not cost a team. It does not strain my imagination to see them beating any team I have seen by 30 points.

    Finally, after having Sherbrooke ahead of Concordia by a nose I now have Concordia ahead of Sherbrooke, also by a nose. Sherbrooke could use more games against mid-rank opponents and then this could change yet again.

Re: 2010 Official Hollywood Top 27

OFFICIAL HOLLYWOOD TOP 27 - WEEK 4

The approximate half-way mark has now been reached. So the OHT27, already the most authoritative ranking in CIS football, becomes even MORE authoritative from here on in. In fact, I have it on good authority that Elle McPherson is very impressed with this week's ranking.

Image
Impressive!

For past reference check OHT #1, OHT #2, and OHT #3. It is always useful to see the wisdom unfold over time.

STEP 1: WEEK 4 RESULTS
  • Sept. 24
    Montreal 24 McGill 11
    Saskatchewan 33 Alberta 9
    Regina 41 UBC 6

    Sept. 25
    Mount Allison 23 Saint Mary's 21
    Laurier 68 York 14
    Bishop's 18 Concordia 17
    McMaster 39 Windsor 3
    Ottawa 27 Queen's 25
    W. Ontario 15 Guelph 8
    Calgary 26 Manitoba 25
    Acadia 24 St. Francis-Xavier 11

    Sept. 26
    Laval 23 Sherbrooke 7
STEP 2: REGIONAL RANKINGS

The rankings show each team's conference record followed by their overall record. The games marked # are non-conference games. The games marked * are games against a jabroni.
  • CANADA WEST

    1 Calgary (3-1, 4-1) beat Alta# Reg Alta Man; lost to Sask
    2 Regina (3-1) beat Man Sask UBC; lost to Calg
    3 Saskatchewan (2-2, 3-2) beat WO# Calg Alta; lost to UBC Reg
    4 Alberta (2-2, 2-3) beat UBC Man; lost to Calg# Calg Sask
    5 Manitoba (1-3) beat UBC; lost to Reg Alta Calg
    6 UBC (1-3) beat Sask; lost to Alta Man Reg
    7 Simon Fraser (0-0)

    Using the “who beat whom” system, every team is consistent with these rankings except for ... Saskatchewan! They lost to UBC and beat Calgary. Those are the only two “oddball” results thus far.

    Of concern is the number of one-sided games so far this year. This week there were once again two blow-outs. The exception was the 26-25 Calgary win over Manitoba. I tend to think that the teams are settling in to where they belong. The big question will be “Where does Sask belong?”I suspect that they will recover and challenge Calgary for the top 2 places, that Regina and Manitoba will settle in to 3rd and 4th, and then Alberta and UBC will be pesky 5th and 6th place teams. But for now the standings are what the standings are and the ratings speak for themselves.

    ONTARIO

    1 Ottawa (5-0, 5-1) beat Wind* WO York* McM Que; lost to Sher#
    2 W. Ontario (4-1, 3-2) beat Laur McM Wind* Gue; lost to Sask# Ott
    3 McMaster (3-2) beat Que Laur Wind*; lost to WO Ott
    4 Guelph (3-1, 3-2) beat Tor* York* Que; lost to Conc# WO
    5 Queen's (1-3) beat Wind*; lost to McM Gue Ott
    6 Laurier (2-2) beat Tor* York*; lost to WO McM
    7 Windsor (1-4) beat Tor*; lost to Ott Que WO McM
    8 Waterloo (0-0)
    9 Toronto (1-3, 1-4) beat York*; lost to McG# Gue Wind Laur
    10 York (0-4, 0-5) lost to Lav# Gue Ott Tor* Laur

    In reading the debate about the hype for WO v Guelph it dawned on me that in fact this IS a down year for the upper echelons of the OUA. Which of last year's top 5 claim to be an improved side this season? NONE! So that would explain why their non-conference results were down from last year's.

    So Ottawa stays top-of-the-heap with luke-warm results against mediocre teams and everybody else stays in their rut. Ottawa, WO, and McMaster are within “the blob”, along with the CW and most of the Q. Guelph, Queen's, and Laurier still look like ham-n-eggers, and Windsor, Toronto, and York continue to define jabroniism. Thoise three teams are a combined 0-7 against non-jabronis and non-ham-n-eggers this year.

    QUEBEC/ATLANTIC

    1 Laval (4-0, 4-0) beat York*# McG Sher StM Sher
    2 Montreal (4-0) beat Sher Conc SFX McG
    3 Bishop's (3-1) beat McG Aca Conc; lost to Conc
    4 Concordia (2-2, 3-2) beat Gue# Bish McG; lost to Mtl Bish
    5 Sherbrooke (1-3, 2-3) beat Ott# MtA; lost to Mtl Lav Lav
    6 McGill (0-4, 1-4) beat Tor*#; lost to Lav Bish Conc Mtl
    7 Acadia (2-1) beat SMU SFX; lost to Bish
    8 Mount Allison (2-1) beat SFX SMU; lost to Sher
    9 Saint Mary's (0-3) lost to Aca Lav MtA
    10 St. Francis-Xavier (0-3) lost to MtA Mtl Aca

    So, where do we go with the A? Acadia and Mount Allison are both 2-0 against SMU and SFX. Their wipeouts against the Q mean that the best they can be is a ham-n-egger. So where does that leave SMU and SFX? Since SFX put up a decent battle with Montreal I shall spare them a jabroni-watch. SMU is a different story. Their punishing loss to Laval is not enough, because lots of blob teams would have suffered the same fate. But too many losses to a ham-n-egger raises questions.

    In the Q it is clear that #1, #2, and #6 are taken. However #2=#4 are more confused now that Bishop's and Concordia have split. Sherbrooke is still hard to rate because all their losses are against Montreal and Laval. Those three could be in any order.
STEP 3: THE BLEND
  • ”CONTENDERS”
    1 Laval (4-0, 4-0) beat York*# McG Sher StM Sher
    2 Montreal (4-0) beat Sher Conc SFX McG

OFFICIAL HOLLYWOOD TOP 27 - WEEK 7

Your patience is about to be rewarded. The OHT27 is here!!!!!!!

And your patience is also being rewarded with a special troika of some of Hollywood's biggest fans: Cheryl Tiegs, Elle McPherson, and Katarina Witt.

Image Image Image

The prior OHT27's are here: OHT #1, OHT #2, OHT #3, OHT #4, OHT #5, OHT #6

STEP 1: WEEK 7 RESULTS
  • Oct. 15
    StFX 6 Saint Mary's 41
    Calgary 17 Saskatchewan 36

    Oct. 16
    Mount Allison 20 Acadia 7
    McMaster 40 Toronto 21
    Windsor 14 Guelph 41
    Concordia 36 Sherbrooke 39 2OT
    Montreal 30 McGill 7
    Western 76 York 0
    Queen's 23 Laurier 44
    Regina 41 Manitoba 19
    UBC 32 Alberta 28

    Oct. 17
    Bishop's 0 Laval 62
STEP 2: REGIONAL RANKINGS

The rankings show each team's conference record followed by their overall record. The games marked # are non-conference games. The games marked * are games against a jabroni. ^Laurier's win over Toronto was reversed.
  • CANADA WEST

    1 Regina (5-1) beat Man Sask UBC Alta Man; lost to Calg
    2 Saskatchewan (4-2, 5-2) beat WO# Calg Alta Man Calg; lost to UBC Reg
    3 Calgary (4-2, 5-2) beat Alta# Reg Alta Man UBC; lost to Sask Sask
    4 Alberta (2-4, 2-5) beat UBC Man; lost to Calg# Calg Sask Reg UBC
    5 UBC (2-4, 2-5) beat Sask Alta; lost to Alta Man Reg Calg SFU#
    6 Manitoba (1-5) beat UBC; lost to Reg Alta Calg Sask Reg
    7 Simon Fraser (0-0, 1-0) beat UBC#

    Those crazy, kooky Huskies looked like world-beaters once again. This really throws the CW for a ratings loop. Regina is hard to see as a real contender. Manitoba could have beaten them but in the end execution won. The question is can they continue to get so much mileage from their talent? Anyhow, no CW can be ranked ahead of them right now, and they are not good enough right now to be considered a "contender".

    Oddly, Manitoba would still make the playoffs with an away win over Alberta and a home win over UBC if Calgary beats Alberta OR if Calgary loses to Alberta and UBC beats Sask, i.e. the 3-way tie.

    ONTARIO

    1 W. Ontario (6-1, 6-2) beat Laur McM Wind* Gue Que York; lost to Sask# Ott
    2 Ottawa (6-1, 6-2) beat Wind* WO York* McM Que Laur; lost to Sher# Tor*
    3 McMaster (6-2) beat Que Laur Wind* York* Gue Tor; lost to WO Ott
    4 Laurier (3-4^) beat York* Gue Que; lost to WO McM Tor*^ Ott
    5 Guelph (4-3, 4-4) beat Tor* York* Que Wind*; lost to Conc# WO Laur McM
    6 Queen's (2-5) beat Wind* Tor*; lost to McM Gue Ott WO Laur
    7 Windsor (2-5) beat Tor* York*; lost to Ott Que WO McM Gue
    8 Toronto (3-4^, 2-6) beat Laur^ York* Ott; lost to McG# Gue Wind Que McM
    9 Waterloo (0-0)
    10 York (0-7, 0-8) lost to Lav# Gue Ott Tor* Laur McM Wind* WO

    Laurier's thumping of Queen's has one asking: Is Queen's now a jabroni? Their only wins are over jabronis this year. Otherwise the rest of the OUA results were nothing but yawners.

    QUEBEC/ATLANTIC

    1 Laval (7-0, 8-0) beat York*# McG Sher StM Sher Conc Mtl Bish
    2 Bishop's (5-2) beat McG Aca Conc Mtl Sher; lost to Conc Lav
    3 Montreal (5-2) beat Sher Conc SFX McG McG; lost to Bish Lav
    4 Sherbrooke (3-4, 4-4) beat Ott# MtA McG Conc; lost to Mtl Lav Lav Bish
    5 Concordia (3-4, 4-4) beat Gue# Bish McG; lost to Mtl Bish Lav Sher
    6 Mount Allison (3-3) beat SFX SMU Aca; lost to Sher SFX Aca
    7 Acadia (3-3) beat SMU SFX MtA; lost to Bish SMU MtA
    8 McGill (0-7, 1-7) beat Tor*#; lost to Lav Bish Conc Mtl Sher Conc Mtl
    9 Saint Mary's (3-3) beat Aca SFX SFX; lost to Aca Lav MtA
    10 St. Francis-Xavier (1-5) beat MtA; lost to MtA Mtl Aca SMU SMU

    Egads, it is hard to actually call anybody #2 in this race. Bishop's just don't have what it takes against Laval. Otherwise Sherbrooke leap-frogs Concordia and Mt A does likewise to Acadia.

    Alberta joins the ever-expanding group of ham-n-eggers. UBC is the only ham-n-egger to have defeated a blob team all year. This is somewhat unusual. In fact, there have been an unusually high amount of thumpings this year.
