2019 OFFICIAL HOLLYWOOD TOP 27 - USports Football

OFFICIAL HOLLYWOOD TOP 27 - PRE-SEASON/WEEK 1

The 2018 season was a disappointment because in the aftermath of surgery I had to work hard and curtail my recreational computer use. But now … It’s 2019!

And to motivate the selections some vintage ladies of quality: Katarina Witt and Elle McPherson.

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 Manitoba (0-0, 1-0) beat Reg#
2 Regina (0-0, 0-1) lost Man#
n/r Alberta (0-0, 0-0)
n/r Calgary (0-0, 0-0)
n/r Saskatchewan (0-0, 0-0)
n/r UBC (0-0, 0-0)

Only one CW exhibition game this year, so not much shaking in the OHT27.

ONTARIO

1 McMaster (1-0, 1-0) beat Gue
2 W. Ontario (1-0, 1-0) beat Laur
3 Carleton (1-0, 1-0) beat Que
4 Windsor (1-0, 1-0) beat York
5 Queen’s (0-1, 0-1) lost Carl
6 Waterloo (1-0, 1-0) beat Tor
7 Laurier (0-1, 0-1) lost UWO
8 Guelph (0-1, 0-1) lost McM
9 Toronto (0-1, 0-1) lost Wat
10 York (0-1, 0-1) lost Wind
n/r Ottawa (0-0, 0-0)

No OUA exhibitions this year, which is odd. Also odd that the traditional bottom four were all paired off against one another.

QUEBEC

1 Laval (1-0, 1-0) beat Sher
2 Montreal (1-0, 1-0) beat Conc
3 Concordia (0-1, 0-1) lost Mtl
4 Sherbrooke (0-1, 0-1) lost Lav
n/r McGill (0-0, 0-0)

No exhibitions in Quebec, either. Strange that Laval couldn’t get a dance partner. So, is Concordia closing the gap?

ATLANTIC

1 Saint Mary’s (0-0, 1-0) beat SFX#
2 St. FX (1-0, 1-1) beat MtA lost SMU#
3 Mount Allison (0-1, 1-1) beat Aca# lost SFX
4 Acadia (1-0, 1-1) beat Bish lost MtA#
5 Bishop’s (0-1, 0-1) lost Aca

Wouldn’t it be cool to rename this conference “Fredo?? Oddly, the teams have fallen into place rather nicely after just one round and an exhibition round. Pity Bishop’s. They’re took pathetic to even play an exhibition game against Sherbrooke.

STEP 3: THE BLEND

OFFICIAL HOLLYWOOD TOP 27 - WEEK 2

There were a few mild surprises this weekend and sorting out the rankings required an international flavour for inspiration. So I got help from a supermodel, Candace Swanepoel, and a former Coronation Street actress, Helen Flanagan. This also marks the first ranking where everybody has played a game.

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 Manitoba (1-0, 2-0) beat Reg# Sask
2 Regina (1-0, 1-1) lost Man# beat UBC
3 Calgary (1-0, 1-0) beat Alta
4 Alberta (0-1, 0-1) lost Cal
5 Saskatchewan (0-1, 0-1) lost Man
6 UBC (0-1, 0-1) lost Reg

At this early stage, margin of victory is a factor. Manitoba beat Regina in pre-season and their 24 point win over Saskatchewan and Regina’s 30 point win over UBC are (probably) more impressive than Calgary’s 10 point win over Alberta. So there you go. After more games we can better evaluate the relative merits of the early results.

ONTARIO

1 McMaster (2-0, 2-0) beat Gue Ott
2 W. Ontario (1-0, 1-0) beat Laur
3 Guelph (1-1, 1-1) beat Carl lost McM
4 Carleton (1-1, 1-1) beat Que lost Gue
5 Ottawa (0-1, 0-1) lost McM
6 Waterloo (1-0, 1-0) beat Tor
7 Laurier (1-1, 1-1) beat York lost UWO
8 Queen’s (0-1, 0-1) lost Carl
9 Toronto (1-1, 1-1) beat Wind lost Wat
10 Windsor (1-1, 1-1) beat York lost Tor
11 York (0-2, 0-2) lost Wind Laur

MacU gets the nod over UWO, just barely, They have no common opponents. But MacU beat Guelph (who beat Carleton) and Ottawa (their only game) whilst UWO beat Laurier (who edged lowly York) and Queen’s (who lost to Carleton). AT the bottom, Toronto-WIndsor-York (in that order). But what to do with the middle? Well, Guelph-Carleton-Queen’s fall in order quite easily. That leaves us with no solid foundation for ranking Ottawa, Waterloo, and Laurier. I decided to jam them together, in-between Carleton and Queen’s.

QUEBEC

1 Laval (1-0, 1-0) beat Sher
2 McGill (1-0, 1-0) beat Conc
3 Montreal (2-0, 2-0) beat Conc Sher
4 Sherbrooke (0-2, 0-2) lost Lav Mtl
5 Concordia (0-2, 0-2) lost Mtl McG

Montreal has now had two very tight wins and their record may be deceptive. Especially when McGill whupped Concordia, against whom Montreal had a very narrow win. So the Q looks a little different than usual in the early going. If this continues, when the conference rankings are blended in the future, The upper rankings of the Top Ten will be just Laval and whichever CW and OUA teams emerge.

ATLANTIC

1 Saint Mary’s (1-0, 2-0) beat SFX# MtA
2 Acadia (1-0, 1-1) beat Bish lost MtA#
3 Bishop’s (1-1, 1-1) beat SFX lost Aca
4 St. FX (1-1, 1-2) beat MtA lost SMU# Bish
5 Mount Allison (0-2, 1-2) beat Aca# lost SFX SMU

One thing about the AUS, it doesn’t take long for the pre-season games to lose ranking usefulness. Mount Allison beat Acadia in exhibition, but then Acadia beat Bishop’s who beat St. FX who beat Mount Allison. I suspect some topsy-turviness in these rankings.

STEP 3: THE BLEND

“POTENTIAL CONTENDERS”
1 Laval (1-0, 1-0) beat Sher

“COULD GO EITHER WAY”
2 McMaster (2-0, 2-0) beat Gue Ott
3 Manitoba (1-0, 2-0) beat Reg# Sask
4 W. Ontario (2-0, 2-0) beat Laur Que
5 Regina (1-0, 1-1) lost Man# beat UBC
6 Calgary (1-0, 1-0) beat Alta
7 McGill (1-0, 1-0) beat Conc
8 Guelph (1-1, 1-1) beat Carl lost McM
9 Montreal (2-0, 2-0) beat Conc Sher
10 Alberta (0-1, 0-1) lost Cal

“THE BLOB IS CALLING”
11 Carleton (1-1, 1-1) beat Que lost Gue
12 Sherbrooke (0-2, 0-2) lost Lav Mtl
13 Ottawa (0-1, 0-1) lost McM
14 Saskatchewan (0-1, 0-1) lost Man
15 Waterloo (1-0, 1-0) beat Tor
16 Concordia (0-2, 0-2) lost Mtl McG
17 Laurier (1-1, 1-1) beat York lost UWO
18 UBC (0-1, 0-1) lost Reg
19 Queen’s (0-2, 0-2) lost Carl UWO

“JABRONIS-IN-WAITING”
20 Saint Mary’s (1-0, 2-0) beat SFX# MtA
21 Toronto (1-1, 1-1) beat Wind lost Wat
22 Acadia (1-0, 1-1) beat Bish lost MtA#
23 Windsor (1-1, 1-1) beat York lost Tor
24 Bishop’s (1-1, 1-1) beat SFX lost Aca
25 St. FX (1-1, 1-2) beat MtA lost SMU# Bish
26 Mount Allison (0-2, 1-2) beat Aca# lost SFX SMU
27 York (0-2, 0-2) lost Wind Laur

This blend was tough. At this stage the teams are basically inserted in rotation by region. Perhaps Alberta could be down a category, although still ranked #10. AUS people might want a courtesy place in the Top 10. NO! For an AUS team to be in The Blob they will have to be reasonably dominant in the AUS and offer at least a challenge in the bowl games. I would be delighted to see the SMUskies, or somebody else, do just that.

OFFICIAL HOLLYWOOD TOP 27 - WEEK 3

We are now three weeks in to the season (two for the CW) and the rankings are starting to take form. And, speaking of form, how about the timeless of beauty of Susanna Hoffs? Still makes me want to walk like an Egyptian! And Alyssa Miller shows why Sports Illustrated is a fine magazine.

1 Calgary (2-0, 1-0) beat Alta Man

3 Alberta (1-1, 1-1) beat Reg lost Cal
4 Regina (1-1, 1-2) beat UBC lost Man# Alta
5 Saskatchewan (1-1, 1-1) beat UBC lost Man
6 UBC (0-2, 0-2) lost Reg Sask

Calgary won the battle for first, Alberta’s narrow win over Regina leaves them a hair behind Manitoba, and Saskatchewan shows signs of life. Looks like 1 and 6 are clear, and movement amongst the rest looks likely.

ONTARIO

1 W. Ontario (3-0, 3-0) beat Laur Que McM
2 McMaster (2-1, 2-1) beat Gue Ott lost UWO
3 Guelph (2-1, 2-1) beat Carl York lost McM
4 Ottawa (1-1, 1-1) beat Que lost McM

8 Queen’s (0-3, 0-3) lost Carl UWO Ott
9 Laurier (1-2, 1-2) beat York lost UWO Tor
10 Windsor (1-2, 1-2) beat York lost Tor Wat
11 York (0-3, 0-3) lost Wind Laur Gue

Laurier and Queen’s look like Ham’n’Eggers this year. The bottom teams are not the doormats they used to be.I want to see what happens when Waterloo and Toronto start playing better teams. The big win for the Urban Cowboys vaults them up a notch.

QUEBEC

1 Laval (2-0, 2-0) beat Sher Con
2 Montreal (3-0, 3-0) beat Conc Sher McG
3 McGill (1-1, 1-1) beat Conc lost Mtl
4 Sherbrooke (0-2, 0-2) lost Lav Mtl
5 Concordia (0-3, 0-3) lost Mtl McG Lav

Montreal answered the call against McGill. Let’s see which games will turn out to be the mulligans.

ATLANTIC

1 Saint Mary’s (2-0, 3-0) beat SFX# MtA Bish
2 Acadia (2-0, 2-1) beat Bish SFX lost MtA#
3 Bishop’s (1-2, 1-2) beat SFX lost Aca SMU
4 St. FX (1-2, 1-3) beat MtA lost SMU# Bish Aca
5 Mount Allison (0-2, 1-2) beat Aca# lost SFX SMU

For the first time this year the AUS had a rich-get-richer weekend. But who really cares when games have to be shifted to avoid a hurricane? Stay safe, Maritimers.

“CONTENDERS”
1 Laval (2-0, 2-0) beat Sher Con

26 Mount Allison (0-2, 1-2) beat Aca# lost SFX SMU

“JABRONIS”
27 York (0-3, 0-3) lost Wind Laur Gue

Right now it is hard to see 1, 2, or 3 losing to 4, 5, or 6. Lots of movement within The Blob seems likely. In fact, movement between The Blob and The Ham’n’Egger categories seems quite possible.

OFFICIAL HOLLYWOOD TOP 27 - WEEK 4

For many teams outside the CW, the season has hit the half-way mark. It gets late early, to paraphrase Yogi Berra. This week’s ranking is inspired by Gisele Bundchen (model and football wife) and Lacey Evans (the sassy southern belle of the WWE).

Lacey’s a legit military girl.

4 Saskatchewan (2-1, 2-1) beat UBC Reg lost Man
5 Regina (1-2, 1-3) beat UBC lost Man# Alta Sask
6 UBC (0-3, 0-3) lost Reg Sask Cal

Calgary and UBC are easy to rank. In the middle, against one another, Alberta is 2-0, Manitoba and Saskatchewan are both 1-1, and Regina is 0-2.

Lacey’s women’s right!

ONTARIO

1 W. Ontario (4-0, 4-0) beat Laur Que McM Carl
2 McMaster (3-1, 3-1) beat Gue Ott York* lost UWO
3 Guelph (3-1, 3-1) beat Carl York* Wat lost McM

10 Windsor (1-3, 1-3) beat York* lost Tor Wat Que
11 York (0-4, 0-4) lost Wind Laur Gue McM

The other conferences had a lot of games where the teams played leap-frog. None of that happened in the OUA. There is growing separation between the top and bottom of this conference. It looks like the bottom six are mostly respectable but no threat to the top five.

Gisele in the early days.

QUEBEC

1 Montreal (4-0, 4-0) beat Conc Sher McG Lav
2 Laval (2-1, 2-1) beat Sher Con lost Mtl
3 Sherbrooke (1-2, 1-2) beat McG lost Lav Mtl
4 McGill (1-2, 1-2) beat Conc lost Mtl Sher
5 Concordia (0-3, 0-3) lost Mtl McG Lav

The win over Laval obviously boosts Montreal’s ranking big time. But when combined with Shebrooke’s win over McGill it makes it a challenge to blend the RSEQ’s bottom three into the national mix.

The man who invented the high-heels and lingerie look deserves a Nobel Prize.

ATLANTIC

1 Acadia (3-0, 3-1) beat Bish SFX SMU lost MtA#
2 Saint Mary’s (2-1, 3-2) beat SFX# MtA Bish lost Aca
3 Bishop’s (2-2, 2-2) beat SFX MtA lost Aca SMU
4 St. FX (1-2, 1-3) beat MtA lost SMU# Bish Aca
5 Mount Allison (0-3, 1-2) beat Aca# lost SFX SMU Bish

The Cajuns win the head-to-head battle for the #1 ranking. I suspect that the AUS will see a number of reversals during the 2nd half of the regular season.

In some of her pictures the cheapskates at SI forgot to buy her the matching top. Thankfully, I found this modest picture.

4 Saskatchewan (2-2, 2-2) beat UBC Reg lost Man Alta
5 Regina (1-3, 1-4) beat UBC lost Man# Alta Sask Cal
6 UBC (0-4, 0-4) lost Reg Sask Cal Man

For some reason, Sask fans thought they were under-ranked a week ago. Nope. Then, and now, there was NOT ONE result inconsistent with these rankings. That is, each team is ranked ahead of the teams they have beaten and is behind each of the teams to whom they have lost. Usually by this point in the season, we have a “loop? in the CW. (This is where A beat B, B beat C, and C beat A.)

It’s nice when a model actually uses swimwear for water frolics.

10 Windsor (1-4, 1-4) beat York* lost Tor Wat Que McM
11 York (0-5, 0-5) lost Wind Laur Gue McM Ott

Waterloo’s win over Carleton was a result of significance. It has all 11 teams falling into a nice, neat order. Again, no loops! The only rankings which are not 100% determined by wins/losses are Ottawa’s place (which could be ahead of Guelph, behind Waterloo, or in-between those two, where I put them) and the Battle for Ninth (between Laurier and Windsor).

QUEBEC

1 Montreal (4-0, 4-0) beat Conc Sher McG Lav
2 Laval (3-1, 3-1) beat Sher Con McG lost Mtl
3 McGill (1-3, 1-3) beat Conc lost Mtl Sher Lav
4 Sherbrooke (1-3, 1-3) beat McG lost Lav Mtl Conc
5 Concordia (1-3, 0-3) beat Sher lost Mtl McG Lav

Finally, a loop! Concordia beat Sherbrooke, who beat McGill, who beat Concordia. Therefore, none of these teams has an absolute priority over the other two. For rankings purposes, it comes down to margins of wins and losses.

One of the classiest models from back in the day.

ATLANTIC

1 Acadia (4-0, 4-1) beat Bish SFX SMU MtA lost MtA#
2 Saint Mary’s (3-1, 4-1) beat SFX# MtA Bish SFX lost Aca
3 Bishop’s (2-2, 2-2) beat SFX MtA lost Aca SMU
4 St. FX (1-3, 1-4) beat MtA lost SMU# Bish Aca SMU
5 Mount Allison (0-4, 1-4) beat Aca# lost SFX SMU Bish Aca

The AUS rankings are the easiest in Canada to assess. The teams have all now played each other once and there are no loops. However, the scores have been close. First just beat last by 7. I can imagine there will be many reversals when the return matches come about in the upcoming weeks.

“JABRONIS”
27 York (0-5, 0-5) lost Wind Laur Gue McM Ott

This is a funny season. We have just the one Jabroni, but a huge pile of Ham’n’Eggers. If McGill, Sherbrooke, and Concordia were more competitive with Laval and Montreal, then all three would be in The Blob instead. Regina and Carleton have had closer losses against comparable teams from their conferences.

OFFICIAL HOLLYWOOD TOP 27 - WEEK 6

The CW has now played a complete round-robin, and the AUS and RSEQ are taking their second lap. So this week I get a mother and her daughters to help. The mother is past 60! But it’s none other than Christie Brinkley, with daughters Sailor Brinkley Cook and Alexa Rae Joel.

Still looking good after 60!

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.

It takes skill to be flattered by a red bikini at her age.

CANADA WEST

1 Calgary (4-1, 4-1) beat Alta Man UBC Reg lost Sask
2 Alberta (4-1, 4-1) beat Reg Man Sask UBC lost Cal
3 Manitoba (3-2, 4-2) beat Reg# Sask UBC Reg lost Cal Alta
4 Saskatchewan (3-2, 3-2) beat UBC Reg Cal lost Man Alta
5 Regina (1-4, 1-5) beat UBC lost Man# Alta Sask Cal Man
6 UBC (0-5, 0-5) lost Reg Sask Cal Man Alta

Nice win for Sask, and this creates a couple of loops. So the rankings remain unchanged. This ranking produces one oddball result (Sask over Calgary) whereas any other ranking would have at least two. So who thought that a 20 point loss by UBC to Alberta would raise no eyebrows?

Sports Illustrated still gets great pictures of her after 40 years.

ONTARIO

1 W. Ontario (6-0, 6-0) beat Laur Que McM Carl Gue Wind
2 McMaster (4-1, 4-1) beat Gue Ott York* Wind lost UWO
3 Guelph (4-2, 4-2) beat Carl York* Wat Ott lost McM UWO
4 Ottawa (3-2, 3-2) beat Que Laur York* lost McM Gue
5 Waterloo (4-1, 4-1) beat Tor Wind Carl York* lost Gue
6 Carleton (2-3, 2-3) beat Que Tor lost Gue UWO Wat
7 Laurier (2-3, 2-3) beat York* Que lost UWO Tor Ott
8 Toronto (2-3, 2-3) beat Wind Laur lost Wat Que Carl
9 Queen’s (2-4, 2-4) beat Wind Tor lost Carl UWO Ott Laur
10 Windsor (1-5, 1-5) beat York* lost Tor Wat Que McM UWO
11 York (0-6, 0-6) lost Wind Laur Gue McM Ott Wat

The OUA falls into place nicely until we get to that 7-8-9 loop involving Queen’s, Toronto, and Laurier. Here’s their head-to-head scores, which decide the issue:
Toronto 38 Laurier 34
Queen’s 37 Toronto 33
Queen’s 16 Laurier 52

It would be helpful if Waterloo could have more games against the top half of the conference.

Sailor Brinkley Cook has a tough act to follow.

QUEBEC

1 Montreal (5-0, 5-0) beat Conc Sher McG Lav Conc
2 Laval (3-1, 3-1) beat Sher Con McG lost Mtl
3 McGill (2-3, 2-3) beat Conc Sher lost Mtl Sher Lav
4 Concordia (1-4, 1-4) beat Sher lost Mtl McG Lav Mtl
5 Sherbrooke (1-4, 1-4) beat McG lost Lav Mtl Conc McG

That 3-4-5 loop is tough to rank. Their head-to-head record decides the issue:
McGill 2-1
Concordia 1-1
Sherbrooke 1-2

Alexa Rae Joel likely envies mom.

ATLANTIC

1 Acadia (5-0, 5-1) beat Bish SFX SMU MtA Bish lost MtA#
2 Saint Mary’s (3-1, 4-1) beat SFX# MtA Bish SFX lost Aca
3 Bishop’s (2-3, 2-3) beat SFX MtA lost Aca SMU Aca
4 Mount Allison (1-4, 2-4) beat Aca# SFX lost SFX SMU Bish Aca
5 St. FX (1-4, 1-5) beat MtA lost SMU# Bish Aca SMU MtA

The good old AUS is a mass scramble. Looking at the point spreads, I could easily see playoff surprises here. Up until the bowl game.

“JABRONIS”
27 York (0-6, 0-6) lost Wind Laur Gue McM Ott Wat

Saskatchewan’s win boosts them, but still not past 4th in the CW. The distance between 1 and 4 in the CW is not very far right now. So now we have four CW teams between 4th and 8th. So some shuffling has occurred. We’ll have to see what happens with Calgary. The extent to which reversals occur in the CW could dramatically affect all the rankings.

It would also be of interest to see if McGill or Sherbrooke can throw a scare into Montreal or Laval, or get a win! Right now there still seems to be a two-tier gap between the top 2 and the bottom 3, notwithstanding Concordia’s spell over Montreal.

Ontario also has a clear top 3, yet they have another 3 in spots 10-12. Ottawa, Waterloo, and Carleton seem unlikely to beat the top 3, or lose to the bottom 5.

Controversy will reign over the AUS for another week. But a 12 point win over Bishop’s does not boost Acadia over the RSEQ ham’n’eggers or Regina.

So in the tow of Axl Rose one day Stephanie Seymour found herself in the same room as Courtney Love. “Are you a model?” Stephanie decided to ask (by way of appraisal I suppose).

“No. Are you a brain surgeon?” was Courtney’s reply.

;D

The Ravens lost to the Gee men today in front of a sold out TD Place .

That is just AWESOME For USports Football. To see the old Panda Rivalry sell out a Modern TD place.

With Laval & Montreal bitter rivals. It would be great to see a Cariban Home game planned ahead of time.
When Laval Visits have the game at Percival Molson. With Laval Fans able to make plans to Travel to Montreal.
As well as the whole Montreal area football community from HS , Cegep, & Als fans out to support the home team.

Similar, A Mac home game vs Rival Western do the same at THF.
These kinda of close regional rivalries amongst the best teams year in and year out certainly can promote USports football to a higher level.

It would be great to see Sportsnet, TSN, or another network to show these special games Nationally.
As well as TVA or RDS the same for Montreal & Laval. As well as the Panda.
Old Peps in Laval. & TD Waterhouse at Western already have bigger on campus venues so wen those rivals visit their home turf. It can make these games a yearly National TV event.

A game of the week would be great Saturdays and maybe a double header once in awhile .

Panda for sure and a few home coming games that have some atmosphere .

But Yes with venues like Laval , University of Montreal , Queens , Western and U of Saskatchewan that have both sides of the field with spectators and fans it would make the better connection to the three down game .

U of Regina and U of Saskatchewan game would be great .

With a few Renos St Mary’s , Guelph and probably missing a few .

There is some good Canadian content and stories that would give you about 14 weeks of coverage and potential of 60 to 100 hours if you add in a pre game show and spin off content .

Saturday afternoons and you also get a young demo mixed with the old . A little hype and pump up on TV every week etc… and you can grow the audience .

Yes exactly. Playing these type rivalry games at TD Place, THF, Percival Molson.
These stadiums are already set up for major TV coverage with Camera areas already in place, press box, …
The idea of the Northern 8 or watever it was called having non conferance games. Shown on a National game of the week is still a great idea.
But they kinda skipped a step.
There are already big in conferance rivals & venues that are modern, and can fill up. So there is no stress of $$$ for schools to cover travel costs. Nor the Networks to cover any large costs.

If they really wana make Usports TV & Nationally relevant.
There gona have to do something about the AUS and how the playoffs are set.
Whichever conferance draws the Aus champ each year it is a blowout & really a buy to Vanier Cup.
Thats certainly keeping Networks to wanting to televise a final 4 type thing.
Or a Junior Hockey Memorial Cup type of national TV type interest from networks.
I mean Bishops already bolted from the Q for football to play in AUS.
If they are going to allow that. They mind as well realign Usports conferences just for Football.
Merge the Q with the AUS. Similar to how QMJH has the Maritime division under the QMJH Umbrella.
The OUA has 9 teams. Break the OUA into a North South division.
Have McGill & Concordia back to the where they used to be in that Ontario North type division where they have Ottawa, Queen’s Carleton. In that division.
Now you have 4 divisions with each division having 5 or 6 teams in each.
Either way keeping the AUS or changing divisions for football.
Have an 8 team playoff with the top 2 teams from each division.
The winner of the league cup games draws a #1 seed & the loser a #2 seed.
Cross over and play #1s against #2s. Truly getting the best 4 teams into a semi.
How many times do we see a top 4 team get left out because of only on team from each conferance gets in to final 4. And the AUS team isnt near the top 4 let alone 8.
Just ex. CanWest Calgary , Sask, or other.
Oua. Western, Mac, or other.
The Q Its Laval and Montreal Cariban.

The OUA squelched a “super league” concept. I like just adding Montreal and Laval to Canada West. 8 teams. Round-robin p0lus one game. Montreal and Laval would face each other a 2nd time for their +1 game. But that would make the Q a second-tier league.

OFFICIAL HOLLYWOOD TOP 27 - WEEK 7

The start of the 2nd (partial) lap around the CW began, and it’s the last weekend before Thanksgiving. So not yet the stretch drive, but the end is in sight. And this week we get to compare and contrast the modeling styles of two different eras with a look at the legendary Marisa Miller and relative newcomer Erin Heatherton.

There are loads of loops in the OUA due to the weekend results. The Urban Cowboys get top spot, Windsor and York still get the bottom two spots. Toronto’s win over Laurier now looks like the outlier result, so they’re #9. Queen’s only wins are over Windsor and Toronto, so they’re #8. Here are the head-to-head records of the rest:
Guelph 3-1
McMaster 2-1
Ottawa 2-2
Laurier 1-1
Waterloo 1-2
Carleton 1-3

Adriana was sleepy but still provided valued insights.

QUEBEC

1 Montreal (6-1, 6-1) beat Conc Sher McG Lav Conc McG Sher
2 Laval (5-1, 5-1) beat Sher Con McG Conc McG lost Mtl
3 Sherbrooke (2-4, 2-4) beat McG Mtl lost Lav Mtl Conc McG
4 McGill (2-5, 2-5) beat Conc Sher lost Mtl Sher Lav Mtl Lav
5 Concordia (1-5, 1-5) beat Sher lost Mtl McG Lav Mtl Lav

Finally! A win by the one of the three over one of the two. Montreal still has the head-to-head win over Laval.

Adriana has mixed thoughts about Acadia.

ATLANTIC

1 Acadia (6-0, 6-1) beat Bish SFX SMU MtA Bish SFX lost MtA#
2 Bishop’s (4-3, 4-3) beat SFX MtA SFX SMU lost Aca SMU Aca
3 Saint Mary’s (3-3, 4-3) beat SFX# MtA Bish SFX lost Aca MtA Bish
4 Mount Allison (2-4, 3-4) beat Aca# SFX SMU lost SFX SMU Bish Aca
5 St. FX (1-6, 1-7) beat MtA lost SMU# Bish Aca SMU MtA Bish Aca

SO Bishop’s plays leap-frog with the SMUskies. And the debate about where to rank Acadia shall rage on again.
