    Calgary Stampeders News Roundup for September 6, 2013

    Getting to know the O-line
    Drew Tate gets to know Edwin Harrison in this one-on-one.

    Stephen: Labour Day rematch not short on intrigue
    Is it really only 97 hours from the end of the Labour Day game in Calgary and the start of the rematch in Edmonton?
    With all of the drama and intrigue surrounding the rematch game, it seems like it was months, not hours separating the contests.
    The Eskimos, of course, have had their share of drama following the game, but so have the Calgary Stampeders.
    The Stampeders drama centers around their starting quarterback.

    Mo no fan of Esks GM’s tactics
    It’s been a whirlwind week for both the Calgary Stampeders and Edmonton Eskimos.
    That’ll happen when you have almost exactly 96 hours between games.
    After the Stamps ran roughshod over, through, and around the Esks offensive line group Monday to the tune of seven sacks, changes were expected.

    Calgary Stampeders Notes: Hufnagel to coach 100th game.
    His birth certificate may say he was born in Pennsylvania, but John Hufnagel is at home in Calgary.
    The Calgary Stampeders boss with the dual portfolio will coach his 100th career game with the Red & White on Friday, and it even surprised the 61-year-old ball coach.
    “When I found out about it through our public relations people, I was pleased that I lasted this long,” Hufnagel said. “Hopefully, there’s a few more games in the future.

    Esks coach denies Calgary Stampeder star's claims
    Jon Cornish says it was Kavis Reed planting bulletin board material on Labour Day.
    Reed says that’s not his style.
    Edmonton Eskimos linebacker T.J. Hill says he has sources.
    The Calgary Stampeders running back says he has his insiders, too.
    It’s a classic case of he said, he said.
    “One of their coaches and a few of their players came up to me after the game and told me I apparently told somebody I was going to rush for 200 yards on them — that I was giving them no respect and stuff like that,” Cornish said earlier this week.

    Calgary Stampeders star Mo Price says Bo Levi Mitchell 'meant to be' as a QB
    Leadership qualities. Poise. Talent.
    You can’t ask for much more in a quarterback.
    Ask Calgary Stampeders game-breaker Maurice Price his opinion of Bo Levi Mitchell, and he’ll tell you the Texan has it all.
    And he has it at the tender age of 23.
    “Bo is meant to do this and he’s meant to be a leader,” Price said of the man expected to get his second-career start Friday night at Commonwealth Stadium against the Edmonton Eskimos (7 p.m., TSN, News Talk 770). “He’s meant to be a starting quarterback, so we expect to see good things.

    5 Key Battles: Calgary Stampeders vs. Edmonton Eskimos
    DE Charleston Hughes vs. RT Cliff Louis
    Talk about a tough return assignment. Louis, who has been out of the lineup for the past five games with an arm injury, returns to the starting lineup this week and draws a man with eight sacks on the season, good for second in the CFL. After dealing with a wrist injury of his own earlier in the season, Hughes has been a one-man wrecking crew the past two weeks. He took out Argos QB Ricky Ray in Week 9, and then gave the Esks offensive line fits on Monday with three sacks. If Louis can’t slow down the prolific edge-rusher, it’ll be another long night for QB Mike Reilly.

    Stamps have no plans to let up on battered Eskimos quarterback Mike Reilly
    Keon Raymond chuckled Thursday upon hearing the news that Edmonton Eskimos quarterback Mike Reilly is alive and breathing in the Alberta capital.
    “I hope so,” the Calgary Stampeders linebacker said. “I don’t want anybody catching homicide charges on our defensive line.”
    Perhaps lucky for Charleston Hughes and Co., Reilly lived to tell the tale from a seven-sack beating in a 37-34 Calgary victory in the Labour Day Classic.

    Stamps notes: Reed pleads innocent on Cornish claim of telling tall tales to fire up his defence
    Kavis Reed pleads not guilty to the accusations levelled at him by Calgary’s Jon Cornish.
    Although, given the gridiron drama in the Alberta capital these days, an ethical complaint by an opposing running back doesn’t likely rank high on Reed’s list of worries.
    On Wednesday, Cornish went public with his distaste for comments Reed allegedly made to the Edmonton Eskimos prior to the Labour Day Classic.

    Eskimos offensive line vows to protect their quarterback on Friday
    Matt O’Donnell is losing sleep at night. Thaddeus Coleman felt in-game shame.
    Both members of an Edmonton Eskimos offensive line that went through a fryer of scrutiny and criticism this week know that what we saw last week — quarterback Mike Reilly being sacked seven times in their loss to the Calgary Stampeders — can never happen again.
