It was a tough year by alouette standards but still lots of positives to look back on.
Sean Whyte setting a new team consecutive FG mark in Calgary with the streak ending in Hamilton.
Jamel Richardson's 12 hundred yard games including the record breaker at home against Calgary.
Calvillo's 3 records all broken vs. the argos with a sweep to boot.
Sweeping the esks and beating the riders in their house.
Setting a new playoff scoring record vs. hammy in the playoffs despite the loss.
Josh Bourke winning lineman of the year.
First place tie and only one point short of finishing first in the east.
Second best average attendance in the recent history of McGill.
Pretty much a full plate of good memories and still defending back to back champs until some other team duplicates the feat
In the end Trestman's mantra held true: 'The pursuit was indeed the reward'.
