Huskies Outsider

After a few seasons of play that entrenched the Huskie offence in the bottom half of the conference, the team would like nothing more than to put the recent past behind them and vault to the top half of the offensive statistics column. The Huskies’ offensive output was good for an average of 496.0 yards per game last season, which was placed them fourth in the conference. They showed flashes of brilliance and signs of their dominant teams of the late 2000’s in the first half, notably in two weeks in September that saw them beat Regina 33-18 at home and UBC 45-29 on the road. Then, they played a | Full Article

The Huskies went on the road and suffered an 8 point loss at the hands of the unbeaten and #1 ranked Calgary Dinosaurs on Saturday. While certainly disappointing to not come away with a win, the Dogs played their hearts out and gave a serious challenge to the best team in the nation. Before beginning our final edition of “Three Downs,” Dallas and I wish to express our appreciation to all of the Huskies who exhausted their eligibility on Saturday; we wish you the best of luck with your future endeavours and hope to see you cheering on the Dogs at Griffiths Stadium next fall. 1st down: What is your | Full Article

This Saturday afternoon, the Huskies will face the tall task of handing the Calgary Dinosaurs their first loss of the season in the conference semifinal to be played at McMahon Stadium. The Dogs played a great fourth quarter in a comeback win over Regina in order to reach the playoffs, and hope that momentum continues against the Dinos. We look ahead to the game with “Three Downs.” 1st down: What will it take to hand an outstanding Calgary team their first loss of the year? Dallas: It will take a full 60 minute effort in all three phases of the game. The Huskies have to find a way to match | Full Article

Tom and I discuss the Huskies’ come-from-behind victory over the Regina Rams and the playoff game next week against the Calgary Dinos. We also discuss the Rams’ third 0-8 season and their 17 years of CIS mediocrity. Enjoy!

The Huskies will play their final regular season game on Friday when they visit the Regina Rams. A win over our southern foe will likely result in the Dogs grabbing the final playoff spot, along with the trip to Calgary that accompanies it. We take a look at this must-win game with “Three Downs.” 1st down: What is the key to the game for the Huskies on offence? Dallas: I think the key will be continuing the dominance through the air, especially since Tyler Chow will not be playing. We have excellent receivers and Kyle Siemens proved he is a CIS-calibre quarterback. If the last game was any indication, we | Full Article

The Huskies are looking to end a two game skid when the TBirds come to town on Friday night. The Dogs played their best game of the season against this same UBC team a few weeks ago, and they hope to show similar form in the rematch as well. Here’s our thoughts on their final regular season home game of 2015: 1st down: How important is this game to Huskie football, and how might that be reflected in the team’s play on Friday? Dallas: I think it’s extremely important if they have any hopes of salvaging this season. Rebounding with a win against a Blake Nill team and taking the | Full Article

The Huskies are coming off their best performance of the season, and now they embark on road matchup with the best team in the country. This is the front end of a home and home series with the Calgary Dinos, and we take a look at it with another edition of Three Downs. 1st down: To what do you credit the Huskies’ turnaround in the last 2 games? Dallas: I think it has to do with the veteran core of the team. Fourth and fifth year players like Drew Burko, Dylan Kemp, Chris Friesen, Mat Leung and Donovan Dale have been through a lot of ups and downs in their | Full Article

The Huskies earned a much needed win over Regina last week, and hope to even their record with a trip to Vancouver to face the TBirds. Dallas and Tom discuss the first 3 weeks of the season, and look ahead to Friday’s game, with another edition of Three Downs. 1st down: What did we learn about the Huskies last Friday night in their win against the Regina Rams? Dallas: I think we learned that they are a potentially explosive team on offence. When they are firing on all cylinders, they have the weapons to put up some big points. Conversely, I think we learned that they are very tough against | Full Article

The Dogs put one up in the win column with a solid performance against the Rams on Friday night. It’s time to hand out some game balls: Offence: Dallas: Nine catches for 135 yards and two touchdowns earned Mitch Hillis the offensive player of the game from me. He is a dangerous player who is a special athlete, as I said on the last Outsider Radio. With him and Tyler Chow available, this offence has the ability to light up the opposition. Tom: Tyler Chow averaged an impressive 8.3 yards/carry and added 56 yards receiving, so I’ll award the 2nd year RB my offensive game ball. Defence: Tom: There’s a | Full Article
