The sports channels often get stuff just to deny the other guy. TSN has the rights to several rugby events they do not show, just so that Sportsnet World is a crap channel not worth purchasing for rugby fans.

I don't believe Sportsnet wants the U-Sports any more. It would fit nicely with TSN the way things have unfolded. Although they would get whipped in the ratings, they could have basketball and hockey semi-finals opposite HNIC on Saturday nights. Nothing on TSN draws much those nights anyhow.

The Vanier Cup/Grey Cup double feature is custom-made for them. Fans would see a regular TSN crew handling the Vanier which would add credibility.
