    Calgary Stampeders News Roundup for November 9, 2015

    News
    ABOUT LAST NIGHT . . .

    Here’s a closer look at Saturday’s 28-7 victory over the BC Lions as the curtain fell on the 2015 regular season:

    Calgary Stampeders 28, BC Lions 7: Game Balls & Bricks
    Spoiled.
    That’s the only way to describe what followers of the Calgary Stampeders have been over the past three seasons.
    As the Stamps dusted off the B.C. Lions by a 28-7 margin Saturday at BC Place in the final game of the 2015 regular-season, it ran the franchise’s record since the beginning of 2013 to an astounding 43-11.

    Lions GM Wally Buono offers tip of hat to friend & rival Stamps Coach Huff
    The significance was not lost on Wally Buono.
    As the B.C. Lions GM sat and watched the Calgary Stampeders beat up on his team Saturday in the BC Place preamble leading up to the real thing next Sunday at McMahon Stadium, he briefly thought about what it meant for John Hufnagel’s final regular-season game on the sideline to be played in front of him.
    After all, it was Buono who hired Hufnagel to be his offensive co-ordinator 25 years ago in Calgary, kickstarting what is sure to eventually be a hall of fame coaching career.

    Stamps get momentum boost heading into playoffs with a win
    For a so-called ‘nothing’ game, the Calgary Stampeders accomplished a whole lot of something in their 28-7 triumph over the B.C. Lions Saturday in Vancouver.
    First, they capped off the regular season with a win, their 14th, which will put a little more of a spring in their step as they head into playoff mode. Second, they got some performances from a number of individuals, some who will see action against the Lions on Sunday in the CFL West Division semi-final, others who may not.
    Receiver Anthony Parker, who has been a consistent cog in the offence these past two seasons, had one of his best games as a Stampeder, snaring four passes for 122 yards and scoring the longest touchdown of his career — a 70-yard romp midway through the third quarter on a ball thrown by Stamps’ starting QB Drew Tate.

    Which Grey Cup matchup is the most intriguing? Here are the nine options
    The tournament is about to begin, and excitement is building, at least for me. There are four games to decide the final matchup, and then it’s up to two teams to decide the Grey Cup winner this year.
    With five games left, there are nine combinations for the final two, and regardless of what happens, it won’t be a well-worn matchup that we’ve started to become tired with.
    Among the possible head-to-heads, only two of them have happened four times previously, and one has never happened before. Of course, with the Ottawa RedBlacks only one win away from a Grey Cup berth, they throw in some extra intrigue. Ottawa has a rich history of football, but not since the early 1980s has there been a decent team in our nation’s capital — the caveat being they didn’t actually have a team for two long stretches of time.

    The East and West semifinals both have an experience gulf at quarterback
    The Ottawa Redblacks's win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats Saturday finalized the CFL's playoff picture, setting up an East semifinal between the Tiger-Cats and the Toronto Argonauts in addition to the previously-determined West semifinal between the Calgary Stampeders and the B.C. Lions. The teams' records heading in are rather different, as the West has 14-4 Calgary hosting 7-11 B.C., while the East has 10-8 Hamilton hosting fellow 10-8 team Toronto, but there's one significant crossover between the games. Both of them will have an experienced quarterback starting under centre for one team, and one with much less CFL experience on the other side, which can make a big difference.

    Wouldn't miss it. Takes me back to Hufnagel's first playoff game as Stamps head coach a 22-18 triumph over BC. All I recall is Burris throwing the ball away with a few seconds left on the clock and giving the ball back to the Leo's for one last jump ball in the end zone.

    Any matchup with exception of TOR VS BC.
    Of course the Stamps vs Redblacks would provide many story lines.

    I'm not sure. The section I'm in is pretty low keyed.

    Henry Burris, Mo Price, Malik Jackson, Justin Phillips, Jon Gott, J'Micheal Deane, Brad Sinopoli, Shawn Lemon, Rick Campbell. That's quite a list of former Stampeders on the StampedersEast... errrr... Redblacks.

    Whats the crowd count look like - might be Huff's last game as stamps head coach, no?

    I predict a tight stamps win, setting up the final confrontation w/ Tennessee Corky's evil empire!

    BC isn't as bad as everyone (particularly riderfans say) and the Stamps (mostly thru injury and doubts about Cornish's health) are no longer mega-dominant.
