  • U of R Rams

    http://www.rodpedersen.com/2018/08/1...-pizzeria.html

    The U of R Rams are home to the Manitoba Bisons Wednesday at 6:00 pm at Leibel Field. There's no broadcast of it so get out and pack the park to see what Coach Steve Bryce has got! Plus it's Noah Picton's final career exhibition game ...

    Hey, are the Rams playing all their games at Leibel this year? Man, I've been wanting them to move there since they joined the CIS and now that it's totally renovated, it's such a beautiful facility. Should be a much better atmosphere, especially if they can find a way to get the students to come out. I finally went to a Rams game last year for the first time in years and it completely sucked. 1000 people in Mosaic for a sporting event is a waste of time.

    The game tonight is the only game at Leibel Field.
    All their other games will at NMS.

      Looking forward to the game tonight. Glad I'm able to catch a game before coaching starts up again tomorrow night. Hoping to see a few former Campbell kids get in!

        Are they charging for tonight's game? Agreed that the atmosphere potential at Leibel Field is huge but we all knew when they build new Mosaic that anything and everything would be pushed there.

          Leibel is too small. The Rams draw 2k for a small crowd and Leibel only holds about 1k.

            A 3,000-5,000 seat stadium beside the turf at U of R would be ideal for the Rams.

            I can't see them leaving Mosaic any time soon though, unless the one of game at Leibel is met with extreme enthusiasm.

              If they planted a couple thousands trees, it would be great at the UofR with additional seating. Rams at Mosaic is terrible, but like you say, they won't be leaving which is unfortunate.

                  Whoops.
                  The University of Regina has launched an internal review after they were forced to forfeit three football games this season because of an ineligible player.

                      Even if they don't disclose the game, it shouldn't be tough for someone who really wants to know to look at the roster of the first 5 games vs the next 3 and see who's missing that dressed for all 5 games so far.

                        I just wonder if maybe it's time they become a full fledged university team instead of how they are currently set up. In the past few years, they've had players suspended for roids, their rookie of the year failing a drug test and playing in Kelowna (guess he likes weed more than playing decent football) and now this. I'm sure other programs have their share of crap too, but maybe the oversight isn't what it should be.

                          You could look right now. He's already off the roster. EDIT: But it was not his fault.

                          This is so terrible for those kids. The university ****ed up, and the kids get punished for it. Just imagine being in your final year of eligibility and then this. Brutal.

                            Especially for a guy like Picton. One of the best QBs in Canadian college history has to play out his final season on a good team that will have forfeited its way out of the playoffs. This could be his last year of football at any level.

                              True, He said as much in an interview this week. This ruling has a bad effect on the Huskies too. They beat the Rams so gain nothing from this but all the teams they are battling in the standing made up a game.
