Running backs and special teams Coach Chris Nugai will be a guest coach next month with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the CFL This will be Nugai's fourth go-round as a guest coach for a CFL team.
Speaking of the CFL, Tad Crawford '07 is coming back for his fourth season with the B.C. Lions. Remember that with the three-down football rules in the CFL, having good defensive backs is crucial.
Small World Update #127
I just found out that HB Shannon, who's doing a great job with his Brown Bear Blogger page, lives in Mayfield Heights, Ohio... probably about 2 minutes from the Marsol Apartments that were my home from 1996-97.
There must have been something in the hard water over there.
I have also been told that graduating CU seniors M.A. Olawale and Austin Knowlin are considering careers in the CFL. I'd love to see what Olawale could do with a few years to hone his skills purely as a running back. He could be an NFL player if he learns that position well enough.
And with all the punting in the CFL, I can see Knowlin as a pretty good weapon as a returner.
