2013 Manitoba Bisons Football

WELCOME TO 2013!

Mosaic Stadium in Regina
No TV or Radio


So, the time for a new football season is almost upon us. And the Bisons are starting out with a common fixture - a road game in Banjoland's southern outhouse.

The Bisons added the most sought-after recruit in the CIS - BCFL grad quarterback Jordan Yantz. One of last year's QB recruits, Theo Deezar, went back to the BCFL and Ryan Marsch went back to the Rifles. That way they will get some playing time.

The Bisons' trioka of running backs are returing for their 3rd year now. In the off-season, Nic Demski played for the World Team in a games against the USA and scored a TD in their loss. Last year Anthony Coombs ran roughshod over the Yanks in leading the World Team to a win.

I have linked to all sorts of preview stories. IMO the big question is whether the Bison D can come around. Remember their 78-54 loss in Bedrock? Secondly, can they avoid the late game yips that cost them 2 or 3 other games? The offence should once again be one of the best.

This also marks the debut of the brand new stadium. My only concern is that it will be way too big for CW crowds. Still a great feature. And, when you go see the Bisons play there you do NOT have to watch the Bombers!

Here is the Bison home schedule:
Fri. Aug 30: Alberta Golden Bears 7 p.m.
Sat Sept 7: Saskatchewan Huskies 5 p.m.
Sat Sept 28: Regina Rams 1 p.m.
Sat Oct 5: UBC Thunderbirds 1 p.m.

The Evil Monkeys were the CW's jabroni in 2012. They have a new coach, who seems like one of those wack football coaches:
For this year’s Golden Bear veterans and prospects, the start of training camp doesn’t actually mark the start of training. Since January, the players have been participating in mandatory 6 a.m. workout sessions on at least a weekly basis.
I have seen this movie before.

Yes, it is only an exhibition game. However, the Bisons blew another one late. Last season, that happened three times. Must control the yips if you want to be a contender!

There are loads of preview links you can check. In a nutshell, this game marks the debut of the Bisons at their new stadium. How many will show up? I have not seen much about the Bisons in the papers or in local media. In fact, less than usual. TBF, it does not feel like the end of summer with yhis heat wave. I know I will be there as part of a fair sized group. A night game at the U of M will feel strange.

In the CW coaches' poll the Bisons are a close 3rd and the Evil MOnkeys a distant 6th. So if the form chart holds, this would be the home side's first win at the new digs. The Bisons also slipped into 10th in the pre-season Top 10.

1. Calgary 47 (4)
2. Saskatchewan 38 (1)

Wow, what a night! 10,199 people watching a Bison game! Touchdowns-a-plenty, big plays, and a warm summer night. What's not to like?

And, it was basically Winnipeg's cleavage-fest. Seriously. It was the night of massive racks. If that sort of thing interests you then the IGF is the place for you.

Now, if you want to read about the game, I have loads of links. Tonight the game was about a new builiding, which may or may not be the catlyst to promote CIS football in a way that not even a Vanier Cup could accomplish.

Will the fans keep coming back? Here are my early thoughts.

- The ticket price hike from $10 to $15 is OK, considering you now get spacious, comfy seats. But concessions have almost doubled in price. They charge CFL prices, such as beer up from $4.50 to $8.00.

- Crowds draw crowds. This may tend to keep people coming back. But it also means that it would be hard to recover fans if they were just showing up once to see the stadium.

- The Bombers suck, and this gives the Bisons a chance to establish a foothold.

- I do wonder about the target market. Are these Bomber fans who wanted to see if it was possible for the home side to win in this place? If so, is it A-OK to charge more than the Goldeyes so long as you charge less than the Bombers? A Bison game is Bombers-light, to these people?

- Over-abundance of tickets means they will always rely on walk-up sales. So expect poor crowds on rainy days.

- I liked the night game. However, when it gets cooler I suspect I will long for the traditional Saturday afternoon start.

- Offensive stars draw fans. Anthony Coombs put on a show. I suspect people will want to watch him.

One concern: How do you give up 40+ to the Evil Monkeys? We'll see hoiw they do against the other teams. They have some good weapons. I do strongly suspect the Primates will be 6th again.

Thus concludes week 1 in the CW. And UBC has the worst offence with their paltry 31 point output. I never saw the game but this one was tied late. The Boys from Bedrock were tied very late and a field goal and TD off an interception salted this one away. If Calgary can barely pull off a win against the lowly Tweety-Birds, maybe they are not the shoe-in for first that the oundits would have us believe. IMO a road win in the CW is never a sure thing, and this proves it. The Dinos go from British California to Banjoland's southern outhouse next weekend, whilst the Birdies fly off to Saudi Alberta.

Welcome to civilization, Mutts!

The great thing about playing for a Saskatchewan football team is that at least three times a year you get to go somewhere vastly superior to your hometown on a roadtrip. This weekend the Banjo-Mutts have that expereience as they visit Manitoba and the spiffy new IGF.

But will they like it? I hear that they really enjoyed drinking from the toilets at the old Pan Am Stadium. And they will no doubt miss playing fetch with the tennis balls, now absent from the scene since the tennis courts were amongst the things removed to build the new stadium.

In any event, the lack of nearby fire hydrants has always been the problem for the Mutts when they visit Manitoba. Even when ranked significantly ahead of the Bisons in the past they have fallen flat when they visit.

And this year, the teams are thought to be on a collision course for a 2nd place showdown, and possibly a semi-final game. But let us not get ahead of ourselves. Sask dusted off British California in exhibition and then narrowly hung on for dear life to beat their inbred cousins, the Lambs. In exhibition, the Bisons starters built a lead against those same Lambs, which was then squandered by the depth players. Blowing leads late in the game was the Bison bug-a-boo last year.

So this is a key game for the Herd. If they could send the Mutts to their kennel (or, worse, back home) with a loss they will surely be viewed as a strong conference contender this year.

Another great night of entertainment, but this time the home side could not pull it out. The Bisons mounted a strong second half comeback to take the lead. They then preserved a 1-point lead with a minute left when they stopped the Banjo-Mutts on 3rd and goal from the one. However, Sask got a field goal with mere seconds remaining. The Bisons took the ball at the 35, completed a pass to the 55, lost 3 seconds on an off-side when the referees' whistle seemed to throw them off, then appeared to get screwed out of 2 seconds after another completion drove them inside the Sask 35. That was a potential game-winning field goal attempt they lost.

Anyhow, the almost 5,000 fans there liked it and I reckon will be back soon. Once the weather cools the place may lose its feel. Whereas game 1 was a Cleavage-Fest, game 2 was the night of the short shorts. Did the campus have a sale on small denim cut-offs?

Where do these teams rate? Maybe they just look nice in great surroundings, but I would say both teams look stronger than last year's Dinos. However, will they look so good playing on frozen ground in November?

Things should come into focus soon Sask and Manitoba each visit Bedrock over the next 2 weekends. Up next for the Bisons is a trip to British California.

The Evil Monkeys had a massive 29-2 lead and seemed to be on their way to a victory when all of a sudden the Tweety-Birds rallied for the win. I think Saudi Alberta has shown they will not be last year's jabronis. Surely they will win a game at some stage. Their offence has loads of talent. And, like the rest of the CW, their D is giving up lots of points.

The Tweety-Birds have had two uneven performances heading into this game, making them a difficult opponent to gauge. Last week they beat the Evil Monkeys in overtime after rallying from a 29-2 deficit. The pundits had them ranked as an outsider but as a tough opponent. Road wins are never easy in the CW, so a Bison win in this one would likely paint them as (at least) a solid playoff team. The big test will be next week in the Town of Bedrock.

There are loads of good stories at the links, so check them out.

Sept. 14: Amazing Comeback for the Bisons!

Holy crap!

After doing my Saturday running around I got home and settled in front of my computer to see the Bisons (hopefully) thrash those Left Coast Hippy Freaks. Imagine my chagrin when I noticed it was 32-15 for the Tweety-Birds. I tot I taw a misprint, but the webcast on canadawest.tv confirmed it. And UBC had just scored with only about 8 minutes left.

Enter the Demski & Coombs vaudeville show. Suddenly, UBC could not stop those two. Jordan Yantz at QB just had to choose which of these stars he wanted to see go, and there he went. Touchdown Demski with 5:46 left. Touchdown Coombs with 2:06 left. Then touchdown Demski with 1:01 left. Sure, a field goal would have tied the game and forced OT (which looked really nice a few minutes earlier), but why waste time? Why not go for the gusto.

Here's how the BC media saw it:
On Saturday, playing its annual homecoming game in front of a smitten, blue-and-gold adorned crowd of just under 4,000 fans Thunderbird Stadium, they became the latter in facing the No. 8-ranked Manitoba Bisons.

What was most incredible was the blinding speed of their descent, surrendering three straight fourth-quarter touchdowns in a span of under five minutes to lose 36-32 after they had led the game 32-15 with under nine minutes remaining.

“As a young team, sometimes you do tend to count your chickens before they hatch,” said UBC head coach Shawn Olson, who will rely on his even keel as the team now prepares to play at Regina this coming Saturday. “Today, we just didn’t make enough plays. If it was something on special teams, or the defence needing to make a stop, or the offence being hit and miss, in all three phases, this was a team loss.”
The Herd is off to the Town of Bedrock next weekend to face the Dinosaurs, who seemed to be facing extinction as conference heavyweight until feasting on the Mutts this weekend.

The next Bison appearnce at the IGF will be September 28th against the Regina Hams in the homecoming game. Why would anybody miss that one?

I do not recall the Bisons ever wearing all-white before.

The score was no indication of the play in this one. It was only a 6 point game late in the 4th quarter when the Evil Monkeys gambled and lost a 3rd down conversion. The Hams capitalized on the turnover and in the dying seconds rubbed salt in the wounds with another late score. Poor little monkeys.

CALGARY DINOSAURS 36

:. [U of C Story] :. [Buckley Story] :. [Stats]

In what has been a wild and crazy season in the CW, Sask's 24 points is a season-low for offensive output. That is rather amazing.

The Dinos have looked rather ordinary so far, albeit still producing victories. They had not played as well as the Mutts in the first two weeks. So one must ask if they have now found the form expected of them by the pre-season pundits. Or, was this an off night for the Mangy Ones.

The Peter Griffins keep rolling along, now at 3-0. But is a 26 point win over the Blahs a big deal? Well, it is better than 14 points over Laurier.

This is another of those games where it is difficult to answer: Was this is a good result for McArooni? 14 point win? Nice. But York lost by 51 to Queen's. IMO McMac will be happy any time they get a W. York? They have remaining games against Carleton, Ottawa, and Toronto. They could go 4-4.

Not even an OUA slate of disasters could immunize one from seeing this result. A 56 point blowout does tend to stand out. The Urban Cowboys have accumulated a well-deserved 4-0 record. At some point one has to call into question the calibre of the mid- to lower-ranked OUA teams.

LAURIER GOLDEN HAWKS 41
WATERLOO WARRIORS 10

Laurier needed this win badly. After losses to Toronto and York (!!!), and with remaining games against the Urban Cowboys, Windsor, the Queens, and McMac, one had to consider the possibility of them going 0-8. Now, they look like they are on their way to 1-7, maybe even 2-6!

MCGILL REDMEN 48
MOUNT ALLISON MOUNTIES 17

:. [Boxscore]

The Mounted are clearly the weakest team in the AUS. Too bad they did not have a game against Concordia in this interlock. Wenow know that the McGilligutties can beat the Stinkers and the Mounted, and cannot beat Laval. That description could apply to almost every other team in the CIS.

ST. FRANCIS-XAVIER X-MEN 35
CONCORDIA STINGERS 18

:. [Boxscore]

This was a good result for the fans of the AUS. It was their only win in the four interlocking games. However, Laval and Montreal could probably beat most teams in the CIS, and the Mounted are the AUS's jabroni team. That meant that the Jeremies had to make a stand and show that a so-so AUS team is better than the refuse of the Q. Mission accomplished.

SAINT MARY'S HUSKIES 10
MONTREAL CARABINS 29

The Smurfs were un-Smurf-like in a gray uniform for this one. While it was a comfortable win for the Bums, IMO it also said that the SMUskies may well be better than 4 teams in the Q.

Image Image
LAVAL ROUGE ET OR 26
ACADIA AXEMEN 14

:. [Boxscore]

There was a time when Laval would have been up by 40 points by half-time against the #2 team in the AUS. No more. It really is too bad that we won't see another A-Q interlock week. Acadia and SFX facing Bishop's and Sherbrooke would be quite intriguing.

Image Image
BISHOP'S GAITERS 22
SHERBROOKE VERT ET OR 21

The first time the Footware beat the Colours it drew oohs and ahs. But twice? Egads, the Foxes are just not reaching their long-awaited "potential". Looks like they will be fighting it out with the McGilligutties for 4th. Neither of these teams seem to be a threat to the top 2 in the Q.

So, are the Bisons a contender? Or a team that is shooting for a playoff berth? This game will speak volumes. The Bedrock Boys beat the Banjo-Mutts, who had already beaten the Herd. So a win here would keep the hopes alive. A loss means 1st is highly unlikely and a good rally would be needed for 2nd.

This should be a good offensive display. (The same could be said for every CW so far this year.) So tuning in Shaw Cable 9 should be worth your while.

This was a Friday night game and I was ging to watch some junior hockey. So I put this one on the PVR to be watched later. Then Shaw had it end after the 3rd quarter. Anyhow, what I saw was not altogether pretty. Yes, Coombs was awesome and the team racked up over 500 yards of offence. But bad D and several bad breaks led to a significant defeat.

Does the Bison braintrust have a plan to make this D work? If so, the team could raise heck in the playoffs. If not, could they score 50 in the playoffs?

It could be that the Evil Monkeys are wearing down. No matter what they tried, they always wound up surrendering a crap-load of points. Or it might be that the Banjo-Mutts are the first team in the CW to get their defence in order. I had hoped that the Monkeys would be more competitive this year.

After losing at home to the Tweety-Birds, the Hams are in dire need of a win. They did beat the Bisons in the exhibiton game. In that one the Herd built up a lead only to have their backups blow it down the stretch.

A win in this homecoming game would almost assure the Bisons of a playoff berth. Then a win over UBC next week would almost guarantee the Bisons 3rd place. And then a win in Saskatchewan would probably get them 2nd, provided the wrap things up with a win over Alberta in the final game.

Hopefully these last two regular season home games will draw nice crowds. I hope to be there!

Sept. 28: Bisons Crush Little Lambs

I watced the football game, paid some bills, let the dog out, grabbed a sub, and am getting ready to head back for the Bison-Blahs hockey game. Many of the links aren't up yet, or shall be updated, so this is an "in progress" kind of post.

This was an ugly game on an ugly day. It has rained a lot. Without the roof I never would have gone to the game. There were just under 5,000 fans there, and way less than half were there by the 4th quarter. The rez students were mostly in t-shirts and were long gone by the end of the half-time break. The combination of cold weather and $7 beer will do that.

On the post-game radio they quoted stats which said each team had 22 penalties for over 200 yards each. Yantz was off at QB, although play slection had lots to do with it. The passes were mostly longer attempts. I say when it is cold and wet, go for short passes and the running game.

The Bisons barely showed up for the 2nd half. They just played for field position. Which probably makes sense when you are up by a bucket-full. But it does diminish the entertainment value.

On the plus side, the Bison D was incredible. For one thing, they do, in fact, have a D. For another, one Lamb TD came by their D on a fumble recovery. So the Bison D surrendered just one TD drive and one missed FG drive in the entire game.

One last thing: What do you to do to get a 15 yard no yards penalty? The Lambs seldom gave 5 yards on a punt all day, clearly to prevent run-backs. (Even so, there were a couple of good ones.)

Next week the Bisons host UBC, the hard-luck losers in the CW thus far. Then again, the Evil Monkeys also had them all-but-beaten as well. It will be the last Bison home game of the regular season.

:. [UBC Story] :. [Boxscore] :. [Stats]

This game was unusual in that very few points were scored. Before this week, only 5 CW games saw a team score below 30 points, and only once was a team below 20. It was quite usual in that UBC lost another heart-breaker. Especially painful were a late pass which hit the upright and a goal-line fumble.

CALGARY DINOSAURS 76
ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 21

:. [U of C Story] :. [CIS Boxscore]

After starting the season looking tougher, the Evil Monkeys have fallen apart. And the Bedrock Boys have found their form.

Image
Here's the skinny on the CW. The teams have now played 5 games each, or one complete round-robin. Though there have been numerous close games, the teams have ultimately filtered themselves out so that there are no ties in the standings. Calgary has 5 wins, Sask 4, Manitoba 3, UBC 2, Regina 1, and Alberta 0. Next week the schedule has #1 v #2, #3 v #4, and #5 v #6. In all 3 games the higher ranked team can assure themselves if finishing ahead of their opponent with a win. Also, if the Bisons beat UBC and Calgary beats Sask, the Bison game in Sask in week 7 would be for 2nd place and hosting rights in the semi-final round.

This may be the last chance to see the home team win at the IGF this season. Saturday's game marks the end of the regular season home schedule for the Herd. A win would make a home playoff game a possibility. But for now, UBC is two points behind the Bisons. If the Bisons beat them then that would guarantee no worse than 3rd place for the Herd.

One other reason to watch: UBC have had the most dramatic endings this year. One week they needed a miracle comeback to avoid being the first victim of the Evil Monkeys in 3 years. That was then followed by a blown game against the Bisons.
