  • Over the past couple weeks, there’s been some interesting stuff going down in the offer game. Grad transfer CFC100 Chris Fournier has garnered offers from Rice, New Hampshire, Towson, and Maine since announcing he would transfer for a fifth year next year, given the new NCAA rule where players get an extra year of eligibility. 2022 CFC100 OT Jackson McEwan also picked up his first offer from Fresno State.

  • In NFL week 10 action, a Canadian had a career day. Eagles linebacker Alex Singleton had 15 tackles against the New York Giants, which is an even higher single-game total than he ever had in the CFL, even in his 2017 season where he was awarded CFL Most Outstanding Defensive Player. CFC100 Chase Claypool also had a solid day, with 4 catches for 56 yards and a couple scores versus the Bengals.
  • Week 12 wasn’t the strongest week for Canadians in college football, partially due to 17 total cancelled games, and adverse effects on some top guys (Chuba Hubbard’s been injured the past two weeks and Josh Palmer’s quarterback is simply not good). Some bright spots were CFC100 RB Chase Brown of Illinois with 110 rushing yards and 2 TDs, CFC40 DE Daniel Joseph with 5 tackles and 1.5 sacks, and CFC60 LB Geoff Cantin-Arku with 5 tackles and 2 sacks.
