CIS Team by Team 2011 season

Canadian University Football camps are just opening up across the nation, the quest for November's Vanier Cup set to begin in September.

Through the fall, as we come across items of note from the member teams of the CIS we'll pass them along through this entry on the portal, it surely won't be a comprehensive review but at least will offer up a glimpse into the growing importance of the CIS to Canadian football.

We'll list our entries University by University as we stumble across them, entries will also be added to our CIS Digest feature.

You can also learn more about the CIS from their website, which features a  wide variety of items and features about the University game in Canada.
