    Interesting article with calls for the OUA to leave the CIS to save money. Not sure this article develops it enough to understand all the reasons but it's a starting point. Could Waterloo start a movement? Or will Waterloo simply drop football?

    Riiiight. Don't follow Laval and improve the level of CIS football, just quit.

    Real lame-o attitude.

    The first 2 sentences are difficult to understand ..... So leaving the CIS will make it that Western or Queens will reduce their investment in football and reduce their effort in wanting to win? And there would be no blowouts.

    And I don't think Waterloo gets much revenue from their games. I think if they left CIS the number of games played would be reduced .... Less overhead. ..... But it may increase interest as a football game doesn't happen often .... A unique event.

    This is typical of Ontario thinking .... Reduce things to the lowest common denominator so more are involved and parity can be achieved.

    OUA really needs to divide their football into 2 tiers. There could be movement between the tiers season over season of 1 or 2 teams. During the season the tiers can play amongst themselves. The top tier can play the Yates to go on to the National bowl games. The second league can play a provincial game .... At the dome, with big crowds ...... Yea right!:(

    They could do the same in Quebec but there aren't as many teams

    Matty Proulx had an interesting article on how it's a North America wide phenomenon to see blowouts in college football.

    The idea of a super league is the best one if not for travel costs and student issues.
