Penn State Commit CFC100 Christian Veilleux Two recent games were my inspiration for looking at today’s quarterback play, and where it is going. With no college or pro football being played in Canada, most football fans were probably tuned in to 2 recent games played south of the border. TheRead More

2020 has become a minefield for high school sports. Each province and its high school sports associations have contrasting philosophies as to the relevance of, and the possibility of playing a football 2020 season. Many “experts” feel that playing football at the high school level is particularly risky. This theoryRead More

The survival and the relevance of the CFL have been questioned for some time, it seems like a never-ending controversy. At the best of times selling the CFL in some cities has been a real challenge. By cancelling the 2020 season due to the COVID-19 crisis, the league’s future hasRead More

  A couple of weeks ago I wrote an article describing “blueblood programs”. Today I am illustrating why I believe that the Citadel high school of Halifax, Nova Scotia, is the bluest of the blue. My primary reasoning is based on 2 critical factors; factors I believe to be unmatchedRead More

This article could be considered a sequel to “Bluebloods”, written last week. While I pointed out, in that article, that a shortage of big guys (offensive linemen & inside defensive linemen) can make for difficult times; and that these tough times could include a substantial obstacle to efficient practices andRead More

As I started this article my wife asked why a program would be called a blueblood program, and what exactly, I meant by that. I thought it was pretty obvious, however, as an explanation, I substituted “football royalty”, this seemed to create some clarity for her. I want to examineRead More

Today I write an opinion that will be unpopular with just about everyone, at my age, I don’t need new friends. Many have decried that U Sports is sticking with limiting the age of its football players to under 25, even though there will be no football in 2020 forRead More

tFor decades, recruiting services have sold parents on this same promise of connecting high school athletes with college coaches who wouldnÕt otherwise recruit them. Even as fewer prospects go unnoticed than ever before, especially in football, services such as Playing for Envelopes sell themselves not just as middlemen, but also as brand managers, social media marketers and recruiting power brokers -- all essential, they say, in an increasingly complicated process.

I consider what Joe Brady did with QB Joe Burrow in his first season at LSU has never been duplicated. Many will hide behind the expression “arguably” to protect themselves from potential criticism. I challenge anyone to describe a better first season coaching job of improving an athlete’s play.
