Tiger-Cats vs. Roughriders: October 21, 2007
Tiger-Cats gameday is here once again. And so that time for me to post this play-by-play game thread for discussion of the game as it happens is here. In fact, posting of this may be overdue with kickoff only being a few hours from now, so I suppose once again there won’t be as much pre-game discussion here this time. But with this game being away from IWS there might be quite a few posts. Or perhaps not, with the way team has played this season. In any case, this thread is here for people to discuss the game as it happens.
WHAT – Tiger-Cats Gameday: Tiger-Cats vs. Roughriders.

Click here to view the video game preview via Ticats TV. This video that is 6:43 in length consists of excerpts of interviews with Taaffe, Beveridge, Armour, and Moreno. Topics discussed include the possibility of “bad blood spilling over? from last week, things coming apart in the 2nd half last week, and the shakeup of the secondary. Also discussed was Moreno being nine tackles away form breaking a team record, and the competition between Moreno and Armour. I enjoyed listening to that part of that segment.
Click here for the Tiger-Cats depth chart. There you will see many changes made there from last week. In addition to the juggling of the secondary are changes mentioned by TCTD here.

Click here for this afternoon's weather forecast.Right now, there is a 0% probability of precipitation this afternoon. Northwest winds of 25 km/h are expected. And at this time, it is expected that the temperature will be about 8°C.
And so gameday is here and we have a rematch from last week. This time, the Ticats try to win a game in a stadium other than IWS, something they have not done this season. And the Ticats go into it without Terry Caulley, who impressed last week. For reasons such as these, it looks like many of us only hope to be entertained and to see some positive signs from this team.
