Sounds good. I hope they both have good individual games.

Winnipeg won 33-25 in overtime.

Jaelon Acklin had 1 carry for 1 yard.  He also had 4 receptions for 33 yards.  The longest reception was 13 yards.

The Arkells did the half-time show.

Attendance = 26,234.  That is an all-time Tim Hortons Field attendance record.

Interesting tidbit to me is he lost 15 lbs his senior year at WIU.  No doubt got quicker in doing that.  So many ball handlers probably spend most of their time getting bigger (and slower).
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));

I remember it well. I think he played some his sophomore year, but you didn't hear much out of him his junior year. I remember asking what happened to him, and why he wasn't playing; only to see him his senior year when he really broke loose. That's what you call dedication and the burning desire to play.
