Just got this article via the CIS twitter feed (https://twitter.com/CIS_SIC) on CIS grads in the CFL.[url=http://english.cis-sic.ca/sports/fball/2012-13/releases/20120628-cis?utm_medium=twitter&utm_source=twitterfeed]http://english.cis-sic.ca/sports/fball/ ... witterfeed[/url]
Apparently, 145 is a record for the number of CIS grads on 2012 rosters (compared to a minimum of 160 over all 8 teams).
The article also breaks down players in a number of ways, including by CIS conference. Canada West leads at 47. This surprises me a little, considering that it's not the biggest conference and there are greater weather and distance challenges faced by that conference than any other. Also surprising is that none of the top 6 contributing schools are in Ontario, despite the fact that all of the teams here are relatively close together and, aside from UBC, we probably have the most favourable weather conditions in Canada for football. I'm impressed that St. Mary's ranks so close to the top, even though Atlantic Canada probably has the lowest interest in football in the country (at least at the pro level).
