TORONTO —Stuffing CFL Outstanding Player candidate Jon Cornish twice this
season is a pleasant memory for the Toronto Argonauts defence. Stephen Nicholas Jersey . Whether they can
stop the Calgary Stampeders star running back a third time in the Grey Cup game
Sunday will be another story. “It was so long ago that we played them,”
linebacker Marcus Ball said Wednesday. “Cornish is stampeding through the league
right now, so its going to be a challenge to try to stop those guys. But were up
for it.” The Argonauts beat the Stampeders in both of their meetings, extending
their winning streak against Calgary to five games since 2010. But none of that
will matter when the teams line up for the championship game at Rogers Centre.
Toronto won 39-36 in Calgary on July 7, holding Cornish to 39 yards on seven
carries. They beat them 22-14 at home on Aug. 18, when the leagues rushing
leader got 43 yards on 12 attempts. That 4.2 yards per carry is well below his
5.6-yard average for the season and was a drop in the bucket of his 1,457
rushing yards for a year, a record for a Canadian. Against most defences,
Cornishs blend of speed and power is more than a handful. In playoff games
against Saskatchewan and British Columbia, Cornish ran for 109 and 112 yards
respectively. “Thats what makes him so good—he can catch it out of the
backfield, he can make a move, he can run you over, he can go between the
tackles,” added Ball. “Thats what makes him a challenge.” Its a challenge the
Argonauts will have to meet if they hope to contain a Calgary offence that has
scored 30 or more points in each of its last six games, all victories. Toronto
has a dangerous attack of its own led by quarterback Ricky Ray, and a special
teams marvel in returner Chad Owens, so much of their fate as they try for a
rare Grey Cup win on home turf lies in how the defence holds up against Calgary
veteran quarterback Kevin Glenn and his array of weapons. “Theyre so balanced
and can attack you in so many different ways,” said veteran safety Jordan
Younger. “It starts with Cornish. “He controls the line of scrimmage with the
run game. Off of that, it opens up the (receivers) Nik Lewis and Romby Bryants,
the Marquay McDaniels and Maurice Prices, to get the ball. Theyve got four
capable guys, a great running back, a veteran quarterback and they have one of
the best offensive minds in the game in (offensive co-ordinator) Dave
Dickenson.” Toronto counters with Chris Jones, a former Stampeder coach who is
widely considered the most creative defensive co-ordinator in the eight-team
league. Jones elected not to speak to reporters as the Argos met with the media
at a team breakfast at a downtown hotel, but his players were happy to talk
about the coach known for tricky coverages and multi-player blitzes. “Some of
the principles are different because you attack so many different ways and from
so many different areas, some of which you may not be used to doing,” Younger
said of playing in a Jones defence. “But at the core, its just football
fundamentals, understanding how to play man-to-man coverage, understanding zone
coverage and knowing when youre supposed to drop.” Price has been especially
hot, picking up more than 100 yards in four straight games heading into the Grey
Cup. The Argonaut defence also minimized damage from Glenn, a quarterback they
know well from his years in Hamilton. But the veteran who was tabbed as back-up
to Drew Tate only to have a brilliant season in injury relief has of late been
playing his best football in years. Both Calgary and Toronto got hot when it
matters most, near the end of the regular season. Both scored upset wins on the
road in their division finals. So neither puts too much emphasis on what
happened early in the campaign. “We cant go into this game thinking we beat them
twice,” said six-foot-eight defensive tackle Kevin Huntley. “Theyre not the same
team and were not the same Toronto Argonauts as when we played them. “Its all
about understanding what your opponent is doing now, not what they did before.
We have an old saying that if you talk about what you did before you havent done
nothing lately. So we want to make sure we go into this game preparing like weve
never played them.” Jonathan Babineaux Jersey . The commissioners
office announced the penalties Tuesday. Kevin Grendell, a left-hander with
Baltimores rookie-level Gulf Coast League Orioles, has been suspended 50 games
for testing positive for Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA). Tony Gonzalez Game Jersey . Fister gave up
just two hits over eight innings and Prince Fielder capped a four-run second
inning with a two-run single to help Detroit beat the Los Angeles Angels 7-2

78th and 87th minute to send North Korea on to the final four. She now has seven

equalizer.BERGAMO, Italy—Inter Milan players Javier Zanetti and Andrea
Ranocchia were among the thousands of people to pay their respects to Piermario
Morosini during a public viewing Wednesday in a church in Bergamo, his hometown.
Morosini collapsed and died after suffering a cardiac arrest during Livornos

Roberto Spagnolo, youth team coach Fabio Gallo and former president Alessandro
Ruggeri were also among those who paid their respects to Morosini, who started
his career with his hometown club. Dunta Robinson Jersey. The Brescia squad also
turned up. More than 20,000 fans are expected to watch Morosinis funeral on
Thursday on three giant screens being set up nearby. Players and representatives
from Livorno, Udinese, Atalanta and Pescara will attend the funeral, as well as
numerous former teammates of Morosini. Italian football federation president
Giancarlo Abete and his deputy Demetrio Albertini will also be there, along with
national team coach Cesare Prandelli. Livorno have organized two buses to
transport some of the fans to Bergamo. ’ ’ ’
