OFFICIAL HOLLYWOOD TOP 27 - WEEK 5

Seems we just got started, and already we are just past the half-way point of the regular season. Deep thought is required from two lovely assistants. Alix Townsend was kicked off a plane for wearing this outfit.

STEP 2: REGIONAL RANKINGS

The rankings show each team's conference record followed by their overall record. The games marked # are non-conference games. The games marked * are games against a jabroni.


Alix looks good on approach.

CANADA WEST

1 Calgary (4-0, 4-1) beat Alta Reg Man Sask lost Reg#
2 UBC (3-1, 4-1) beat Alta# Man Sask Alta lost Reg
3 Regina (2-2, 3-2) beat Cal# UBC Alta lost Cal Man
4 Saskatchewan (2-2, 2-2) beat Man Alta lost McM# UBC Cal
5 Manitoba (1-3, 1-3) beat Reg lost Sask UBC Cal
6 Alberta (0-4, 0-5) lost UBC# Cal Sask Reg UBC

The Manitoba win over Regina makes this more like a typical CW season, where we have a couple of “loops”, i.e. A beat B, B beat C, and C beat A. Omitting the two teams from Saudi Alberta, the standings are:
UBC 2-1
Reg 1-1
Sask 1-1
Man 1-2

That Banjoland Battle coming next week is a very significant game rankings-wise. Who would have thought there could exist a scenario where Manitoba could overtake Regina in the rankings before the bye week?


Alix dazzles on departure.

ONTARIO

1 W. Ontario (5-0, 5-0) beat York* Gue McM Wind* Que
2 McMaster (3-1, 4-1) beat Sask# Carl Ott Gue lost UWO
3 Laurier (4-0, 4-1) beat Tor* Carl Que Wat lost Con#
4 Ottawa (4-1, 4-1) beat Gue Que York* Wind* lost McM
5 Waterloo (4-1, 4-1) beat Wind* York* Tor* Carl lost Laur
6 Carleton (1-3, 1-4) beat Que lost Lav# McM Laur Wat
7 Queen's (0-4, 1-4) beat McG# lost Car Ott Laur UWO
8 Guelph (2-3, 4-3) beat SFX# MtA# Wind* Tor* lost Ott UWO McM
9 York (1-3, 1-4) beat Tor* lost Sher# UWO Wat Ott
10 Toronto (1-4, 1-5) beat Wind* lost Mtl# Lau Wat Gue York*
11 Windsor (0-5, 0-5) lost Wat Tor* Gue UWO Ott

The Big Lemon was all abuzz over the epic battle between York and Toronto. Both teams are in the OUA's Top Ten! Otherwise all games were won by the higher ranked team. Laurier gets a boost with a win over Waterloo. I have my suspicions about Waterloo. But no matter what happens the rest of the way, they still might be the “team of the year” for their turn-about. By the way, here is the NJR (non-jabroni record) for the teams:
UWO 3-0
McM 3-1, 4-1
Laur 3-0, 3-1
Wat 1-1
Carl 1-3, 1-4
Que 0-4, 1-4
Gue 0-3, 2-3 (two mini-wins)

So the rankings have been adjusted accordingly. Funny that there is not yet a “loop” in the OUA results.


Amia is also very inspirational.

QUEBEC

1 Montreal (4-0, 5-0) beat Tor# Con Lav Sher McG
2 Laval (3-1, 4-1) beat Car# Sher McG Con lost Mtl
3 Concordia (2-2, 3-2) beat Lau# Sher McG lost Mtl Lav
4 McGill (1-3, 1-4) beat Sher lost Que# Lav Con Mtl
5 Sherbrooke (0-4, 1-4) beat York# lost Lav Con McG Mtl

Laval escaped with a narrow win over Concordia. A loss would have dropped them very significantly in the rankings, and really thrown things for a loop. As it is, they cling to 2nd in the Q.


Amia may have visited the AUS if they still played interlock with Quebec.

ATLANTIC

1 Saint Mary's (4-0, 5-0) beat Aca# SFX Bish Aca MtA
2 Acadia (2-2, 2-3) beat Bish SFX lost SMU# MtA SMU
3 St. F.X. (2-2, 2-4) beat MtA Bish lost Gue# MtA# SMU Aca
4 Mount Allison (1-3, 2-4) beat SFX# Aca lost Gue# SFX Bish SMU
5 Bishop's (1-3, 1-3) beat MtA lost Aca SMU SFX

The AUS has now completed a round-robin. Spots 2-5 are seemingly in a toss-up for the second round-robin of the season.

STEP 3: THE BLEND


Everybody from coast-to-coast can admire Amia.

26 Toronto (1-4, 1-5) beat Wind* lost Mtl# Lau Wat Gue York*
27 Windsor (0-5, 0-5) lost Wat Tor* Gue UWO Ott

The Blob has been split in two. Right now, the “Lower Blob” teams have but one win against “Upper Blob” teams, and that is Manitoba's win over Regina. It is difficult to rank SMU and Manitoba within that group of OUA teams. Guelph's wins have been mini-exhibition games and jabroni victimizations.
