REGINA - Hamilton Tiger-Cats head coach Kent Austin is a figure that l

REGINA - Hamilton Tiger-Cats head coach Kent Austin is a figure that literally looms large over Mosaic Stadium, site of the 101st Grey Cup. Thats because a 21-metre-high banner of Austin hangs outside the stadium, which is home to the Saskatchewan Roughriders football club. Its a tribute to the quarterback who guided the Riders to the 1989 Grey Cup championship and was head coach when the green and white clinched the title in 2007. Austin left the Roughriders after the championship win and spent five years in the U.S. college ranks before becoming Hamiltons head coach and general manager last December. Saskatchewan spoiled Austins return to Regina in the regular season with a 37-0 win over the Ticats in July. But Riders head coach Corey Chamblin says the Ticats are "a totally different team" now and Saskatchewan cant take anything for granted in the Grey Cup on Sunday. "Thats the thing about it, its a very fresh challenge for us. Everythings brand new," Chamblin said at a news conference Tuesday. "They do so many different things from when we played them early in the season. Theyve totally changed...a lot of things that theyve done and Im sure (they think) the same thing when they look at us on film, so itll be a fresh game and itll be one of those where therell be a lot of adjustments throughout the course of that game." Chamblin says one of the things the Riders did in the off season was look at how many coaching changes other teams had and try to catch them off guard early on. But he says Hamilton has grown together and gelled as a team. Hamilton heads into the Grey Cup game on a roll, having won 11 of its last 15 games, including last weeks East Division final against 2012 Grey Cup champion Toronto. Chamblin, who spent the 2011 season as Hamiltons defensive co-ordinator before becoming the Riders head coach in 2012, says he doesnt see the game as a head-to-head challenge between coaches. "I enjoy that I dont get the storylines he does, that puts more pressure on Kent," joked Chamblin. "No, right now its the Hamilton Tiger-Cats versus the Saskatchewan Roughriders. I never make it an individual battle or anything like that. Kents a very good coach and hes done a very good job with his football team. The same here." "Ultimately its going to be two teams play in the Grey Cup," he added. Riders quarterback Darian Durant agrees that they are preparing to face a completely different team, including his former Saskatchewan teammate and friend Andy Fantuz. "Those guys, there were missing some pieces when we played them earlier. You know, they had a bunch of young guys who were new to the CFL, didnt know the game as much and now, theyre basically veterans," Durant said at Mosaic Stadium. "They went on the road and they beat the defending Grey Cup champions, which says a lot, so you definitely have to make sure youre ready and prepared for those guys." The last time Saskatchewan and Hamilton faced each other in the Grey Cup was in 1989, when Austin was the quarterback. Saskatchewan won 43-40 with a last-second field goal from Dave Ridgway. Durant is getting help from Saskatchewan offensive co-ordinator George Cortez, who was the head coach and director of football operations for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats last season. The Grey Cup will also be a homecoming of sorts for Hamilton quarterback Henry Burris, who is a former Rider. Authentic Chris Kaman Jersey . Hazard cut in from the left and scored with a swerving right-footed shot for ninth goal of the season, which proved to be enough for the victory despite Chelseas forwards again lacking a cutting edge up front. Al-Farouq Aminu Jersey . A big centre with all the tools to be an elite player, Johansen paced the Blue Jackets with a standout game Saturday night. He had a goal and two assists for a career-high three points as Columbus beat the New York Islanders 5-2 to snap a five-game losing streak. http://www.theblazersteamshop.com/mason … rs-jersey/ .ca! Hi Kerry, Its another day and here we are looking at another dubious hit to the head. In this case Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky elbowed Saku Koivu in the head about a second after he dished off the puck to a teammate, knocking him unconscious. Damian Lillard Blazers Jersey . However, he did make them miss him a little less. Cundiff, who had the unenviable job of replacing Dawson last season, agreed Thursday to a one-year, $1. Ed Davis Jersey . Numbers Game examines the deal that sees Michael Del Zotto and Kevin Klein switch places. The Predators Get: D Michael Del Zotto.STANFORD, Calif. -- Tyler Gaffney ran for 95 yards and two touchdowns, Anthony Wilkerson added 68 yards and another score, and No. 5 Stanford started strong in a 42-28 victory over No. 23 Arizona State on Saturday night in the Pac-12 opener for both teams. The defending conference champions controlled every facet of the game to turn the only matchup between ranked opponents this week into a 29-0 halftime lead. The Cardinal (3-0, 1-0) scored in the air and on the ground, forced two turnovers, blocked two punts, tallied 10 tackles for loss and recorded three sacks. Taylor Kelly threw for 367 yards, including three touchdown passes in the fourth quarter, and Jaelen Strong caught 12 passes for 168 yards and a score in an otherwise disappointing showing for the Sun Devils (2-1, 0-1). Arizona State beat Big Ten champion Wisconsin in a controversial finish last week in the desert. Stanford showed more diversity on both sides of the ball than it had in solid, but not overwhelming, victories against San Jose State and Army. The Cardinals funky formations and disguised defences had the Sun Devils dazed and dizzy, again displaying the disparity between the past four league champions -- Stanford and Oregon -- and everybody else. Kevin Hogan completed 11 of 17 passes for 151 yards and two touchdowns to Ty Montgomery to lift Stanford to its 11th straight victory. Montgomery, held without a touchdown last season after being slowed by a nagging knee injury, finished with four catches for 62 yards. He has at least one touchdown in every game. Cardinal contributions came from all over. Josh Mauro, making his first career start in place of injured defensive end Henry Anderson, backed off his pass rush and stuck his left hand out to corral Kellys pass for an interception. The play extended Stanfords streak of forcing a turnover to 27 games -- the longest in the country -- and set up Montgomerys 17-yard touchdown catch. Gaffney ran for a short TD after Devon Cajustes diving, 34-yard reception.dddddddddddd Wilkerson scampered 13 yards for another score, and Montgomery sliced up the middle for an easy 30-yard touchdown. The Cardinal capped off the one-sided start when Blake Lueders blocked his man into the punter. The ball deflected into the end zone and was kicked out for a safety to give Stanford a 29-0 halftime lead. Ben Gardner blocked a surprise punt by Kelly, and Gaffney followed with a 16-yard TD run to give Stanford a 39-7 lead late in the third quarter. The worst news of the game for Stanford came when officials ejected safety Ed Reynolds for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Kelly in the fourth quarter. Under the new targeting rule, Reynolds could miss the first half of the next game at Washington State unless the conference overturns the call. Kelly threw touchdown passes to Chris Coyle (45 yards), Strong (7 yards) and Marion Grice (6 yards) in the fourth quarter to make the game look closer than it was. Kelly completed 30 of 55 passes and threw an interception in a desperation heave to the end zone on the final play. The late rally put a charge into Cardinal coach David Shaw, who put Hogan and the offensive starters back in the game. But Arizona State wasted its best chances to seize momentum earlier. Grices 2-yard TD run finished off a 1:42 drive to open the second half. Then Robert Nelson intercepted a pass from Hogan to give the Sun Devils the ball at Stanfords 34, but the Sun Devils turned it over when Grice dropped a pass on fourth down. The loss was another humbling setback for an Arizona State program trying to take the next step under second-year coach Todd Graham. The Sun Devils began this season by blowing out Football Championship Subdivision opponent Sacramento State and then scored one of the programs biggest victories in recent years last Saturday night in a 32-30 victory over then-No. 20 Wisconsin that ended with Pac-12 officials getting publicly reprimanded.
