So you're saying a head coach with 20 years experience had so little control over what was happening that he brought on a bad offensive coordinator and then allowed him to derail multiple seasons without the head coach stepping in to fix the problem?

You're either wrong or that head coach should be dismissed immediately. The buck stops with the head coach, if "the OC was horrible" that's on the HC for allowing it to continue.

More likely the Rams just didn't recruit as well those seasons and suffered for it, they had a lack of talent.

With the right talent you can run a 12 play playbook at bantam and do fine. Perhaps if this OC had a far too complicated scheme that could cause big problems, but again that would be incumbent upon the head coach to realize was happening and take the steps to correct it.

Your argument that it was all coaching doesn't hold much water. Look at the Stony Plain team from this year and last, tier ! finalists last year to 0-7 this year and 44 points scored. That was all coaching? Talent beats coaching every time at the youth level.

Nope it's a combination of both-but I guess I'm just an uneducated observer

To the Raymond folk this is old old news. We have gotten used to it up here. My son is in 8th grade and played the Rams during the regular season. We got pounded pretty good. My son is one of the better grade 8 players on his team. He and I have both been spoken to by the coaches what I will say ‘strategically place parents’ from the Rams. It is the better way to go now. My sons team was decimated last couple seasons by players leaving for the Rams. Hey. If you can’t beat em join em.

As a person that was at the game and not affiliated with either side. Let me put my 2 bits in.
Rams 91, big guy, hit to the whistle and a little after, I didn't find his hits late but I did find that they were not needed being that he hit someone close to the pile that had nothing to do with it, a little dirty but no where near a penalty. It was the type of hit you love when its your team and hate when its not.
As for the stands, its Raymond's stadium they have the right to put any rules they wish. I cant believe that adults are complaining cause some one is sitting in their seat or not where they are supposed to....grow up!
Yes some of the Raymond players walk home, they live a 2 minute walk away, it wasn't overly cold and its not a big city were they are going to get shot on the way home.
Everyone needs to stop being a troll, grow up, congrats to Sherwood Park and hold your heads high Raymond, you took on a community 50 times larger then you town and held your own!

Not 50 times larger but cor the most part I agree with your post

We're barely over 2 days out from Calgary's loss to Laval and the comments coming from some CW posters are hilarious yet sadly reflective of an angry & bitter group of people; very Trump-like in many ways.

Examples include:  blaming young rookies, coaches, calling Laval players old & uneducated, racist & homophobic comments towards the Calgary mayor & PM Trudeau, trashing Western & entire OUA, ... on & on, etc.

Accept the loss & move on already!  Sad & pathetic!

asm lost to HT 32-27 in a close hard fought game. the crusaders shut down rourke who played a terrible game for his standards. if it had not been for a kick return touchdown the crusaders would have taken the game deservedly. agreeing with some other posts i also think that nelson would not be able to compete with a defensive superpower such as assumption or an offensive beast like HT. there is nothing special about Nelson as their offense often take 2-3 quarters to put up decent points against average teams and a defence that lets tier 3 teams put up 15 points

Did they get a first down on the play? Was
b15  enough?

Because Team B did a scrimmage kick (return kick) Team A does not need to gain any yards.  Team A gets a first down as a result of receiving the return kick.

Another way to think of it is that the overtime series will end when (a) Team A scores, (b) Team B scores or (c) Team B ends up with the ball (on downs, interception, fumble recovery, etc.)

Never really see no yards within 30 yard line of kicking team....

But I'm assuming that if there had be a 15 yard No Yard called it is a restricted penalty.

Yes no yards is restricted if within the 30 (15 yard variety) or within the 10 (5 yard variety.)

Doesn't happen very often but had an UR against Team B and two OC against Team A.

After sawed off, move back 5 yards...

Is it still a first down for Team A because of the UR... seems odd to move back and award a first down.

You need to keep in mind that Objectionable Conduct is not balanced like other penalties.  The definition from (7-4) is:

"Penalty: 1) L10 from point where the ball would have been put into play if no other foul occurred, or added to the penalty for any other foul."

This means that you always apply OC after the other penalties.  So in your case you would apply the UR: up 15, awarding the first down.  Then move back 10.  Then move back another 10.

This can make a difference with restrictions depending where in the field you are.

Realignment might be the only to fix the problem....this is how i see it

Atlantic division




8 team national playoff, 4  conference  champs plus 4 wildcards as voted.

I agree ... great idea but you are asking the "leagues" that make up USports to,dissolve themselves, their traditions (103rd Yates Cup), their sponsors, their TV deals (RSEQ and CW) for what exactly?

No one wants to admit it but USports doesn't really exist beyond its brand... It has so team, no leagues, no investigators and its TV deals for FB and BB suck. Schools, teams, officials and athletes belong to leagues, the leagues use USports to coordinate national championships which USports GET THE LEAGUES TO HOST FOR THEM. Each championship is bid on and hosted by a member school who is assisted by their league.

So i mean a lot of alignment schemes get posted here. All of them seem better than what we currently have but the money needed to coordinate a 27 team FB team league across Canada is daunting. Jim M can't get a 8 or 9 team national league for some of these same reasons.

Not true divisions can still have championships there are the same amount of divisions as before, this would just balance out and make it so that we are truly getting the top 8 teams in the country. Yes Laval may dominate aus but other than Montreal they dominate the Q. The top programs are going to be the top no matter what this way it ensures that they are playing each other and giving competitive games instead of 78 point blowouts.
Ex. This year might have looked like
1. Laval - A champ
2. Western - O champ
3. Montreal - Q champ
4. Calgary - W champ
5. Laurier - wc
6. UBC - wc
7. Regina - wc
8. McMaster - wc

I think everyone will agree that these matchups 1 vs 8 and so on would be much better games.
