Tom and Dallas wrap up spring camp with a look at key position battles and which players stood out. In addition, they give their thoughts on Canada West and the Northern 8 proposal. Interviews with coaches and players follow the podcast.

Tom interviews Head Coach Brian Towriss about his impressions of camp so far and what we can expect during tomorrow’s Spring Scrimmage.

The University of Saskatchewan Huskies are now through two practices at their 2015 spring camp. Tom and Dallas break down a few key battles and who is impressing early on.

As coaches Aaron Moser and Scott Flory worked in the adjacent rooms, Head Coach Brian Towriss and I sat down to discuss several topics, ranging from recruiting to coaching changes in the Canada West to uniform rules in the OUA. Tom and I will be following up with the fan perspective in a week or two with the second edition of Outsider Radio for 2015.

In the Canada West conference, and in the entire CIS, for that matter, you will be as successful as your offensive line is strong. It’s no coincidence that the Huskies were a dominant team that went to four Vanier Cups between 2002 and 2006 with players like Rhett McLane, Chris Sutherland, Jordan Rempel, and Tim West manning the offensive line. It’s also no surprise that the Calgary Dinos have been so successful lately, with the likes of Paul Swiston, Kirby Fabien, Alex Krausnick and Carson Rockhill opening holes and protecting their quarterbacks. Of course, these teams also have great defensive players and excellent receivers, quarterbacks and running backs, but the | Full Article

Coach Jason Sulz spoke briefly with Huskie Outsider, on Saturday afternoon, about his talented group of receivers. “The group is doing well. Unfortunately Kit (Hillis) and Graham (Unruh) got nicked; they’re two guys that we’re looking to for some production this year and I really wanted to give them some more reps, but that’s the breaks of camp I guess” (Kit Hillis was able to rejoin camp for the scrimmage). Yol Piok and Brett Enns are two of the Dogs’ new recruits at receiver. “They’re both picking things up right away,” Sulz noted. “They’re not getting a ton of reps right now, but they’ll get a lot in scrimmage tomorrow. | Full Article

Tom and Dallas break down the defence and wrap up 2014 spring camp.

The University of Saskatchewan Huskies wrapped up their 2014 spring camp today with the annual scrimmage. See some of the highlights below.

The Huskies wrapped up spring camp with a scrimmage this morning. Both sides of the ball turned in a fairly good performance to cap off what was a successful weekend. The offence was able to score four touchdowns on the day. On the first drive of the day it took Jarvis James just 2 carries to get the ball into the end zone from the 15 yard line. James promptly pounded the ball into the end zone for a 2 point conversion on the next play as well. Jarvis also scored the second TD of the scrimmage, this time on a 7 yard pass from Jeremy Long. Mitch Hillis scored | Full Article

With the graduation of veterans Joel Seutter, Ben Rush, and Zach Hart, the defensive line will be taking on a new look this fall. Despite the turnover, don’t expect there to be much of a drop off from what has arguably been the Huskies’ strongest unit over the last few years. “We’re really good at tackle, with a lot of depth there,” commented Aaron Moser, one of the Dogs’ two defensive line coaches. “Honestly, I think we have six guys that can play defensive tackle. Our veteran guys – Clayton Sarich, Brayden Twarynski, and Tim Agbaje – have all looked really good. But Garrett Meek, Caleb Eidsvik, and new recruit | Full Article
