--Dean Brockman is back in the WHL. The former Saskatoon Blades coach was named Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations for the Swift Current Broncos.  The job became open when Manny Vivieros left to become an assistant coach with the Edmonton Oilers.   Meanwhile, former Regina Pat Brad Lauer was announced as the head coach of the Edmonton Oil Kings.

--The 2019 SaskTel Tankard is going to Whitewood. The event will be held February 6-10 with the winner representing Saskatchewan at the Tim Hortons Brier in Brandon.

--Ricky Ray's season is over.  Reports say the veteran quarterback isn't planning to return to the Toronto Argonauts this year after suffering a neck injury in their 41-7 home loss to the Calgary Stampeders on Saturday night.

--With Zach Collaros on the shelf, the Riders have gone out and gotten a new quarterback.  Devin Gardner played his college ball at the University of Michigan.  In his senior season (20140, he threw for 1896 yards with 10 TD's and 15 INT's. He had been playing in Japan.

--A huge upset at the World Cup in Russia. Defending champion Germany failed to make it out of the group stage after a 2-nil loss to South Korea. Germany needed a win to have a shot at advancing but conceded two goals in stoppage time. The outcome propelled Mexico into the round of 16 behind Sweden, even after Sweden's 3-nil win over the Mexican team.

I heard you on the Cage yesterday talking about Gardner. You're right. This guy was horrible as a QB. What makes anyone think he can be a CFL QB? Another epic Murphy fail!
