This year there were 17 returning starters. Unfortunately, due to injuries the team was down to 12 and 14 starters in the last two games respectively. Luckily, there were a few guys able to step it up and help the hurting team out.

Defensive lineman Dan Federkeil finished his fifth and final year as a Dino, accumulating 31 solo tackles and 29 career quarterback sacks. He was nominated for the prestigious J.P. Metras Trophy for Canadian Interuniversity Sport Lineman of the Year.

The Dinos football team took on the University of Saskatchewan Huskies in front of 1,600 rambunctious fans Sat., Oct. 29. After losing to the University of Manitoba Bisons the previous weekend--and being pushed out of a playoff spot--the Dinos were playing for pride.

The battle of Alberta was fought at McMahon Stadium Sat., Oct. 15. While the first 45 minutes of the game were played valiantly, the result was dismal: the Dinos lost 20-10 to the University of Alberta Golden Bears.

While the score looks better on paper than some of their other losses this season, this game held more significance because it was against their U of A rivals.

Wow! Pretty much all I can say is wow. On a warm evening in Vancouver Fri., Sept. 30, at what's known as the mud bowl or the University of British Columbia Field, something unbelievable happened: the last place UBC Thunderbirds (0-3) massacred the fourth place Dinos (2-2). The major upset ended with a score of 43-4 for the Thunderbirds.

Friday Sept. 16 was the night of the Dino. Not that fancy, uptight dinner the university puts on every year, but a night that really showed Dino pride. Dan Birdwell, a defensive lineman for the Oakland Raiders in the 1960s, once said "you have to play this game like somebody just hit your mother with a two-by-four."

  Dual defeats don't discourage DinosPDF files may take a moment to load

The battle of Alberta saw the Dinos defeated 34-20 at the hands of the University of Alberta Golden Bears Sat., Sept. 10. In front of 3,376 fans, the Dinos tried to prove that the previous week's dismal defeat against the University of Manitoba Bisons was uncharacteristic of what this team is capable of. While the Dinos' performance improved significantly, they were still unable to attain a victory.

  Dinos step into big pile of Bison shitPDF files may take a moment to load

During the late 1990s Head Coach of the Cincinnati Bengal's, Bruce Coslet, once commented about a losing season. "We can't run. We can't pass. We can't stop the run. We can't stop the pass. Other than that, we're just not a very good football team right now."

That quote pretty much sums up the Dinos' first football game of the season Sat., Sep. 3.
