If you’ve got time this morning you may want to re-watch the highlights of the last match-up with the boys in yellow. A couple of things stood out to me the other night as I watched this for about the fourth time. What a slick ballhandler Jazz Lindsey is. There are plays in the video I’ve now seen four or five times and I’m still faked out when Jazz executes his ball fakes. Also, I also saw some great hits on RBs and receivers. Particularly one by Cam Walker. No wonder even some veteran Gaels were a little reluctant to catch the ball in the 2nd half of the game.

Another article from the Whig-Standard – Gaels return man in rare company – focuses on receiver/returner Chris Patrician. Patrician who missed the Oct 13 game in Guelph may be the best punt returner in the OUA. He has scored 3 TDs on returns. If you recall the first game Guelph dominated Queen’s in the return game – 338 return yards vs 63. So they better watch out for this guy today.
Gryphon fans will remember that a great Gryphon effort at Queen’s in 2009 went for naught when Gael returner Jimmy Allen scored 3 TDs. He was the differnce maker in 52-49 loss in Kingston. What I’d really like to see is an A’dre Fraser punt return for a TD. Fraser has returned 2 or 3 kicks for TDs this season only to have them nullified by penalties. Fraser has been very close to breaking several others.
