Post Re: Irish invading Canada
It was a big weekend for football in Canada with the annual labour day games, as the Edmonton Eskimos toppled the Calgary Stampeders 37-16 while in Montreal the Alouettes had a tremendous
goal line stand, stopping the BC Lions four times from the one yard line while coming out on top
30-25. In the east the Toronto Argonauts defeated the Hamilton Tiger Cats for the first time this season, but the game still came down to the final seconds with Toronto prevailing 34-31.

In the only other game this weekend the defending Grey Cup Champion Saskatchewan Roughriders
with newly acquired quarterback Michael Bishop defeated the Winnipeg Blue Bombers 19-6, and yes for those of you that are familiar Labatts Blue was named after the Bombers.

After taking a couple of weeks off from writing there is not much to tell, as these were perhaps the most lopsided games of the season. Jarious Jackson continues to recover from injury, as back-up Buck Pierce led the BC Lions to a 40-10 victory over the Hamilton Tiger Cats.

Also in Toronto in a game I regret attending Mike Vanderjagt scored 17 points, as the Calgary Stampeders cemilished the Argonauts 44-16. Did I forget to mention that Vanderjagt plays for Toronto, and gave up 2 safeties, and fumbled a ball in the end zone that led to a Stampeders touchdown.

Sorry Mike, yes he does, and he still has quite the leg, but he never kicked in the CFL with the accuracy that he displayed in the NFL. Coming into this season he had a 73% accuracy rating on field goals.

Last week in the CFL Jarious Jackson finally got back in the line-up, and led the BC Lions to a victory over the Argonauts by a score of 55-32 in a wide open game.

The Argos have gone from a team that won 11 games last year with former Kansas State quarterback and former Heisman runner-up Michael Bishop to a team who traded for last years MVP, and have only won 4 times in 17 games, and will probably lose tonight against Saskatchewan and former QB Michael Bishop. :lol:

By the way Jackson passed for 156 yards and three touchdowns in relief of Buck Pierce, and in case you were wondering if you get injured up here, and they have a capable back-up, you can lose your job, and hopefully Jackson quarterbacks for the rest of the season.

Well Jarious Jackson is apparently not going to be the quarterback for the BC Lions in the playoffs, at least until Pierce gets injured again, and the Lions defeated the defending Grey Cup Champion Saskatchewan Roughriders 33-12 in the West Semi-Final.

In the East (Sort of) we had two western teams competing for the right to move to the eastern final and face the Montreal Alouettes. The reason for this being that until they put another team back in the east they have a cross-over team if the fourth placed team in the west has a better record than the third placed team in the east. Well, enough about that, as the Edmonton Eskimos defeated the Winnipeg Blue Bombers by a score of 29-21 on the strength of 303 yards passing in the -8 degree wind chill of Can Ad Inns Stadium in Winnipeg.

The season came to an end on Sunday at the 96th Grey Cup in Montreal, as the hometown Montreal Alouettes provided the opposition for the western champions the Calgary Stampeders.

In a game played before the second largest crowd in Grey Cup history the Alouettes started fast and built a 13-3 lead that was trimmed to 13-10 by halftime with a late touchdown. The fans would sit on their hands fir the entire half, as the Stampeders would outscore the Alouettes 12-1 in the second half, and send 66,308 fans home licking their wounds.

Until next year....Hoping for an influx of Fighting Irish and Volunteers.

PS: Nick Setta may get a look in the NFL next season.

The new CFL season starts tomorrow, and we have another Fighting Irish alumnus who has found a home in the CFL.
Defensive tackle Darrell Campbell who spent parts of four seasons in the NFL will play for the Montreal Alouettes this season.

There will also be 4 members of the Tennesee Volunteers in the CFL this season.

Last night in the CFL the BC Lions defeated the Edmonton Eskimos by a score of 40-22, as Jarious Jackson came off the bench for the Lions and completed 19 of 28 passes for 362 yards and 4 touchdowns. So it only makes sense that Lions coach Wally Buono announced today that Buck Pierce would start next week after losing his first two starts. :?

Last night in the CFL Jarious Jackson came off the bench again to lead the BC Lions to a come from behind victory over Toronto Argonauts. Jackson replaced the oft injured Buck Pierce and threw for 254 yeards and three touchdowns.

Justin Medlock kicked 7 field goals for the Argos, as they went down to defeat 36-28.
