I have no interest in going to see Cinninati play Western Michigan. Now if they would bring back the Can-Am game and let Canada use the Canadian seniors in the NCAA as well as the CIS I would be interested.
They might not all be available because of their own teams bowl games.
An O-Line of Jeff Perrett (Tulsa) and Peter Dyakowski (LSU) at tackle, Jon Hameister-Ries (Tulsa) and Kyle Koch (McMaster) at guard along with Cedric Gagne-Marcoux at center would match up with anybody on the US side.
The same on the D-Line, Jermaine Reid (Akron) and Adrian Davis (Marshall) at DE, J.P. Bekesiak (Toledo) and Alan Weeks (Windsor) at DT. And there would be Jason Ward (Connecticut), Mike Williams (Boise State), Art Kapalanga (Syracuse) at DE's and Nuvraj Bassi (Oregon), Cory Mace (Wyoming)at DT as backups.
WR's Eric Deslauriers (E. Michigan) and Obed Cetoute-Genaille (C. Michigan) along with Dave McKoy (Guelph) and Glenn MacKay (Windsor)
TE Steve Schmidt (San Diego State)
A pair of excellant RB's would be Jon Cornish (Kansas) and Clifton Dawson (Harvard)
QB Michael Faulds (Western)
LB's Aaron Wagner (BYU), Josh Bean (Boise State), Jesse Alexander (Laurier), Tyrone Roue (St. Mary's) Yannick Carter (Laurier)
DB's Mike Roberts (Indiana State),Anthony Plante (Ottawa), Drew Haynes (Waterloo), Moe Sidibe (Concordia), Jesse Card (McMaster). This would probably be the weakest positions.
K Derek Schiavone (Western)
I'd pay money to go and see these guys and who ever else was picked, play some US college all-stars.
I hope they get a good crowd to see this game this year, but...not much appeal.
There is a couple of Canadians on Western Michigan, 3rd string Rec. Fernand Kashama and 4th string QB Caleb Clarke.
Cincinnati has a 3rd string Canadian DB Peter Carriere.
