What do you think Mark?

Maybe it's just me but this year's tournament does not seem as deep as previous years. As strong as Carleton has been, there have always been at least 2 or 3 other teams going in that seemed to have a decent shot on paper. This year, I think UBC might be the only one and they are less of a threat than Brandon or Victoria in recent years, IMO.

Some might argue that Acadia is a potential danger in the second round but their loss to St. Mary's does show AUS sports, IMO but rather how few real threats there are this season.
