The Northern 8---Good or Bad for CIS Football?
I'm sure you have read about this, but if not, Vancouver broadcaster Jim Mullin and Saskatoon businessman David Dube are trying to create a higher profile for Canadian university football. They want to see the top teams in this country playing against one another and they want to see the product that is Canadian university football get more exposure across the country by having the games shown nationally on some network which isn't being done right now.
I love the concept and I think this is something that could fly, but it would seem there is a lot of resistance on the parts of some in the CIS to make it happen.
Watch this video and feel free to comment as on the surface, it would likely be a good thing for both of Saskatchewan's university programs.
David Dube will be with me in the Sportscage Friday afternoon at 505 to discuss this.
