    Calgary Stampeders News Roundup for September 20, 2013

    Thursday, Sept. 19: News and notes from practice
    It looks as though the Calgary Stampeders’ win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats came with a price.
    A Maurice Price, that is.

    Stephen: QB carousel continues in Calgary
    It has been, to say the least, a most unusual situation with Calgary quarterbacks in 2013.
    Drew Tate opened the season, but an injury gave way to Kevin Glenn who gave way to Bo Levi Mitchell as a result of an injury of his own. Not only have the Stampeders played three quarterbacks, the three have all been productive and won games.
    The trio has led Calgary to the best record in the league, 33 offensive touchdowns and the best time of possession record in the league.

    Stamps running back Jon Cornish finds motivation
    For Jon Cornish, finding motivation is as easy as finding a crease in a defence.
    And when the outspoken Calgary Stampeders tailback finds it, he usually exploits it.

    Stampeders Hughes putting up big sacks numbers
    They say if you’re not getting better, you’re getting worse.
    There’s no doubt Charleston Hughes is doing the former.
    Heading into his sixth campaign with the Calgary Stampeders earlier this year, the dynamic pass-rusher didn’t care to share the personal goals he set for himself during the off-season.

    Stamps could party like it’s 1995
    You are obliged to scroll back a ways. Quite a stretch, matter of fact. All the way to 1995. To put it in some sort of historical context, O.J. Simpson went on trial in 1995. The DVD format was announced in 1995. The Russian space station Mir launched and Forrest (“Life is like a box of chocolates”) Gump swept the Oscars,
    Also in 1995, the Calgary Stampeders won 10 of their first dozen games.
    Hasn’t happened since.

    Stamps defenders prepare for the unique talents of Argos backup Zach Collaros
    What the veteran Ricky Ray can do as a quarterback is a given, but his replacement Zach Collaros is quickly establishing his own M.O. for opposing defences.
    “They’re two different players, like night and day,” explained Calgary Stampeders’ defensive stalwart Keon Raymond after practice on Thursday as the Stamps prepare to take on the Collaros-led Toronto Argonauts. The Argos, 7-4, and Stamps, 9-2, square off on Saturday, 5:30 p.m. kickoff, at McMahon Stadium in a battle of division leaders.

    Stamps notes: Arnett finally draws into the lineup, replacing the injured Mo Price
    It’s been a while since Calgary Stampeders’ newcomer Alric Arnett has played a football game outdoors and he’s looking forward to it this weekend.
    “Hopefully it’s a nice day on Saturday,” mused Arnett, who in 2012 toiled for the Orlando Predators of the Arena Football League.
