OFFICIAL HOLLYWOOD TOP 27 - WEEK 2

After the opening of the CW, and week 2 elsewhere, it seems as though there could be some extreme divisions in this year's rankings. Did you know that Barbi Benton was once a Hee Haw Honey? What a weird show that was. Banjos and cut-offs. When colour TV comes to Saskatchewan they'll be all over that one.

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.


My mechanic, Angela Jennings, introduces the CW.

CANADA WEST

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

Regina looks like the real deal. I suspect Bedrock U will join them but right now that's guesswork. Key game already for the Herd against the T-irds.


Danielle Robertson introduces the OUA.

ONTARIO

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

The big news here is that Waterloo has now won twice. Solid wins, too. No early whistle due to a curfew in a tight game. But it's always hard to gauge teams who have only beaten jabronis. It would still be great for Waterloo to upgrade to ham'n'egger this year. Above Waterloo we have a very tight bunch of teams, all capable of almost any re-ordering in upcoming weeks. For now, the McUniversity edges the UfOs and Urban Cowboys in the top bunch. And the next bunch of Cartoon U, Goof, Jackass College, and the Queens are basically pick 'em.


Josephine Skriver takes us to the RSEQ.

QUEBEC

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

There are only 5 teams here but clearly two distinct levels. (I guess that's a 21st century use of “distinct society” for Quebec.) Anybody picking something other than Laval v Montreal for the Dunsmore?


Alexa turns her back on the AUS.

ATLANTIC

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

Rough intro for Bishop's to the AUS. Nice turn-around for St. F.X. With the SMUskies on a bye week we have to wait at least one more week to see if they for real, or an AUS facsimile thereof.

STEP 3: THE BLEND


Jenna Drouin hitches a ride to this week's blend.

"POTENTIAL CONTENDERS"
1 Regina (1-0, 2-0) beat Cal# UBC
2 Laval (2-0, 3-0) beat Car# Sher McG
3 Montreal (1-0, 2-0) beat Tor# Con

7 Calgary (1-0, 1-1) beat Alta lost Reg#
8 W. Ontario (2-0, 2-0) beat York* Gue
9 Carleton (1-1, 1-2) beat Que lost Lav# McM
10 Concordia (1-1, 2-1) beat Lau# Sher lost Mtl
11 UBC (0-1, 1-1) beat Alta# lost Reg
12 Saint Mary's (1-0, 2-0) beat Aca# SFX
13 Guelph (0-2, 2-2) beat SFX# MtA# lost Ott UWO
14 Laurier (1-0, 1-1) beat Tor* lost Con#
15 Manitoba (0-1, 0-1) lost Sask
16 Queen's (0-2, 1-2) beat McG# lost Car Ott
17 St. F.X. (1-1, 1-3) beat MtA lost Gue# MtA# SMU
18 Sherbrooke (0-2, 1-2) beat York# lost Lav Con
19 McGill (0-1, 0-2) lost Que# Lav
20 Mount Allison (1-1, 2-2) beat SFX# Aca* lost Gue# SFX
21 Waterloo (2-0, 2-0) beat Wind* York*
22 Alberta (0-1, 0-2) lost UBC# Cal

"JABRONIS-IN-WAITING"
23 Toronto (1-1, 1-2) beat Wind* lost Mtl# Lau
24 Acadia (1-1, 1-2) beat Bish* lost SMU# MtA
25 Windsor (0-2, 0-2) lost Wat Tor*
26 York (0-2, 0-3) lost Sher# UWO Wat
27 Bishop's (0-1, 0-1) lost Aca*

These rankings are still very volatile. There are a lot of significant match-ups next week between teams in the same neighbourhood, which should allow some winnowing to occur.
