2012 Mitchell Bowl: November 17, 2012
The Ticats season may be over, but there is a team in this town that is a contender to win a national championship. And that team consists of some future CFLers, and perhaps some future Ticats. Their opponents also have some future CFLers, and possibly some future Ticats. After what was a disappointing season for Ticat fans, there are many football fans in Hamilton who would like to at least see the McMaster Marauders succeed, and win this Mitchell Bowl game today and be playing in the Vanier Cup game again. And if you want to post about the game as it's happening, this is the place to do so. You can think of this thread as being like a virtual living room where fans discuss the game with each other. You can think of it as being like a virtual broadcast booth where what happens in the game is mentioned and commented on while it's happening. You can also think of it as being like Twitter but without the character limit. In any case, here we go.
WHAT – The 2012 Mitchell Bowl. McMaster vs. Calgary. Marauders vs. Dinos.
WHO - The McMaster Marauders and the Calgary Dinos.
WHY – To see which of these teams that appear to have some future CFLers (and quite possibly, some future Ticats) will be playing for the Vanier Cup.
WHERE - Ron Joyce Stadium in Hamilton, Ontario.
WHEN - Saturday, November 17th, 2012, at 4:00 p.m. EDT.
HOW - Radio: CHML (900 kHz AM) broadcasting from Hamilton.
The McMaster Marauders are on a 20 game win streak and are the only undefeated team in the CIS this year so far. But today, they are going up against a team that is definitely better than any team they have taken on since last year's Vanier Cup game. Both teams have many talented players, and players who will be watched closely by CFL scouts. And so this game is expected to be a great one, as these two teams that are among the best in the CIS look to play for the Vanier Cup next week. And so now having said that, I say...
