CIS is now U Sports

Canadian Interuniversity Sport is rebranding itself as U Sports.

Every article I've read touches on tv ratings, as sad as that is.  I don't know how they can compete for eyeballs vs the NCAA machine, let alone all the pros.

Truth be told, as a teen I would watch a CIS game of the week a couple times a month just for fun, background noise.  I also enjoyed the semi final football games & Vanier Cup which was at SkyDome for a long while.

I wonder if CIS/U Sports can exist long-term with the NCAA being around and accepting Canadian schools. I know that Simon Fraser has transitioned, I wonder if more will.

 

Carleton could be a top 50 program in NCAA Division I men's basketball right now.

In Canada, colleges belong to U Sports. In Soviet Russia, college sports belong to YOU!
