Tiger-Cats gameday is here once again. And so the play-by-play game thread for discussion of the game as it happens is due to be posted. So as we prepare for Thanksgiving dinner, this will be the place to discuss this game we will be watching.

Click here to view the video game preview via Ticats TV. This video that is 4:52 in length consists of excerpts of interviews with Taaffe, Armstead, Caulley, and Cody. It was interesting to hear Armstead say he had to make better decisions. It was also good to see clips of last week’s TD pass and blocked punt. However, the information given about Lumsden seems a little outdated.
Click here for the Tiger-Cats depth chart. Good to see Printers is listed as the starting quarterback on it, not good to see Lumsden not there at all. Cavka replaces Jerome Davis, and Adams and Lofton start at DT and LB respectively.

Click here for this afternoon's weather forecast. Right now, there is a 40% probability of precipitation this afternoon. Northwest winds of 5 km/h are expected. And at this time, it is expected that the temperature will be about 16 degrees Celsius.
And so gameday is here and the Ticats again, and they take on a team that is also struggling. However, without Lumsden, the Ticats may not have much of a chance. But this could be an opportunity for the Ticats to show what they can do without him, and that they can win away from IWS. And let us hope that on this Thanksgiving Day, we’ll be thankful for a Ticat win.
