    Let me be clear about this, there's not practicality to this idea what so ever. My point is that the level of talent that the AUS is able to attract is spread so thin that it would take combining all...

    I think the AUS is struggling to get beyond it's own reputation. I can't imagine many recruits want to play on the wrong side of the annual nationally televised slaughter. Before things turn around,...

    X has this really bad habit of putting tackling dummies on the bus when they travel to Quebec. It’s a problem, because the coaches get confused and put them in the game.
