Queen’s won Saturday afternoon by a score of 32-6 against McMaster. Most obvious reason is 8 turnovers by Mac. You better win a game when that happens. All of those touchdowns were direct results of the turnovers and short field position. So the score doesn’t indicate the whole story. Offense wasn’t as good as it has been as Brannagan threw for 161 yards. Quite low for him but he didn’t make the mistakes Mac did. With the Queen’s running game and defense that was more than enough for a win. Need to play better against Western next week though.
Bit of misleading trivia coming out of this, already seen “Queen’s hosting the Yates cup for first time since 1978”. Technically true, but part of the reason is Queen’s joined up the Ontario-Quebec Conference in 1980. They played for a different championship for the next 2 decades. The Golden Gaels hosted the Dunsmore Cup in 1997, but that doesn’t sound as good as 1978.
1pm kickoff next Saturday on CFRC and on The Score. Or catch the game in person in Kingston. Did you see the crowd? Or should I say lack of a big crowd. Less than 2,500 for a playoff game is disappointing. Weather was nice and sunny so can’t use the weather excuse.
Mac got a bit of revenge as the basketball team won Saturday night on CFRC. My streak of working on every live sports broadcast since I started in 2006 came to an end. Bound to happen with the increase of games this year and my work schedule. I’ll give out the schedule for hockey and basketball for everyone. Basketball isn’t on the CFRC website right now so this is the only place to read them right now.
2010 is getting close.
Quick version of NFL picks since work was quite busy on Saturday night. Made the picks on Friday night’s show, but I can’t remember if everyone is the same.
Falcons, Bears, Ravens, Colts, Jags, Pats, Packers, Saints, Seahawks, Giants, 49ers, Cowboys and Steelers.
Think for Friday I’ll re-air the show with Toni Marie Wiseman. It did air in July when a lot of people in the Kingston area might have missed it. Summer is a slower time at the station and this Friday is the day she’ll be running with the Olympic Torch in St. John’s. It makes sense to play that show again this week.
Will be taping a new voiceover for it. Can talk about the feedback for it this past summer and a few other things.
