Yup, Laval's OLine will be HUGE this year. And fast too. Watch out for that inside run, it will slice through opposing defences like a hot knife in soft butter.

The Arblows have released Eric Maranda and Yves Hercule.

I can now put that team back on my hate list where they belong.

That's a whole damn lot of CIS guys that got released. Sorry they couldn't make it.

Gotta say I'm surprised Jean-Louis got released. He was a heck of a DT for Laval.

So Orban is going back to the Rams... Should be good for the CIS. And I'll bet he gets another try next year.

2008-06-21, 17:15
Why no love for Mark Dewit, ex of the Dinos? Just 21 years old, youngest guy at the combine, youngest guy drafted...sticks with the Argos, on the active roster!

During the ex-game versus the Ticats, he played the second quarter at left guard, played in the third at right guard and took two series in the fourth at center. He is now the 6th lineman for the Argos! This after playing all last year with the Dinos at left tackle.

Still has two years of elegibility left.

Way to go Mark!

:rolleyes: Because we hate his guts?

Seriously, much more likely we didn't notice before you mentioned it. We each follow players out of our own backyard, in addition to stars like Orban obviously.

This being said, he's with the Argos. Impressive feat at 21 but still, no love for sure. ;)

2008-06-21, 17:50
Oh, and just wondering, how come he's with a CFL team already???

CIS guys get drafted after their 4th year after all. Or at age 24 IIRC. Neither of which applies to him. So what's his story?

2008-06-21, 17:59
Mark redshirted first year, played d end year two (1 year of eligibility), played left guard year three (2nd year of eligibility) and tackle last year four (3rd year of eligiblity). Two years of eligibility left but had to go into the draft because of his 4 years of school.

2008-06-22, 03:23
Not seeing his name, I presume P-L Yao stuck with the Eskimos.

Good for him.

Yup, him and Ciezki are both listed on Edmonton's roster.

So is Concordia's Sammy Okpro who was the most dominant DB in the Q the past few years. Seems he got through camp with a roster spot too.

Good job Dewit but then why no love for O'Neill? Even though its about being in the right place at the right time its about being ready when that time comes. Shout out to the other Dinos OL in CFL camp Tim O'Neill. He also had a great exh. series and has stuck on the Stampeders active roster. Great job by former CIS All Canadian and pro Rohn Meyer who is the Dinos OL coach and to the offseason conditioning the team is doing. That should help bring more guys who want the best development out there as long as their marks are good enough to get into the u of c. Guess there's a new OL factory in the CW. :D

Dinos batting .1000
.1000 ain't that good. 1.000 is much better. :p

Congrats to all who got to keep their dreams alive, even those who get to do it with the Argos. :)
