Grey Cup 101: Former Rider champions offer advice to team

They may not be playing with the team anymore, but there are a lot of former Saskatchewan Roughrider greats who are getting fired up for Grey Cup.

"This is something that people are going to be remembering for the rest of their lives, something that they're going to talk about for years to come," Don Narcisse said.

Grey Cup 101: Rider Nation has no borders

Regina may be hosting the "Celebration in Rider Nation," but the borders of Rider Nation extend far beyond the Queen City.

"As long as you can kind of navigate the internet and I guess try and find a way to watch it, and stay up late, you can still be a Rider fan from abroad," said Cole Hawkins, a student from Regina who is currently studying in Europe.

Gary Etcheverry resigns from Roughriders

The Saskatchewan Roughriders announced the resignation of defensive assistant Gary Etcheverry just days before the start of training camp.

Vice President of the Riders, Ken Miller, says Etcheverry will be looking for business opportunities instead of coaching football this season. Etcheverry was demoted within the Roughriders coaching staff after losing his defensive coordinator position to Richie Hall.

Riders take one on the chin in Montreal

What looked to be a promising game at the start ended with the Saskatchewan Roughriders being brutally outscored 40-9 by the Montreal Alouettes on Monday.

The Green and White, led by running-back Anthony Allen, actually took a 7-0 lead in the first quarter of the game. Tino Sunseri started the game but wasn't actually used much out of the gate; Allen ran wild to pick up the bulk of his 126 yards in the first quarter. That included the Riders' only offence of the game, an 11-yard touchdown reception.

GAME DAY: Riders hope to re-find winning ways in Montreal

The Riders are back on the road today trying to pick up a rare win in the Eastern time-zone.

Heading east has been a struggle for the Green and White, save for a night game earlier in the year against the Ottawa RedBlacks, the Riders have lost games in both Toronto and Hamilton.

One of the biggest reasons for those struggles could be the time change, especially when the team has to play at 11 a.m. Saskatchewan time.

GAME DAY: Riders at Alouettes depth charts

The Riders close out the Eastern part of the schedule this week in Montreal against the Alouettes.

The Green Zone Game Day begins at 6 a.m. on News Talk Radio with Game Day with Wray, followed by the Green Zone Pre-Game Show. During the game, stay tuned for the Fan Zone with Scotty and the King which leads into the Green Zone Post-Game show as we hear from the guys, the players and you at 1-877-300-7275 and by text at 306306.

Tino Sunseri to start in Montreal

The Riders are once again making a change at quarterback this week, kind of.

Tino Sunseri will start Monday afternoon against the Montreal Alouettes after Seth Doege got the start last week behind centre against the Calgary Stampeders.

Of course, Sunseri did end up playing a little over half of the game against the Stamps after coming in for Doege when he threw three interceptions. So, it's not really a change at quarterback but officially on the depth chart it will be.

Hughes, Best back at Riders' practice

The Rider roster is about to get a big boost.

Thanks to some extra days off this week, the Saskatchewan Roughriders appear to be getting some key players back from the injured list. Fullback Neal Hughes and offensive lineman Chris Best are eligible to come off the six-game injured list and have been practicing all week.

"It's been very tough to sit on the sidelines, obviously I want to be out there," said Hughes, who's been out since week two with a foot injury. "It's a great feeling practicing with the guys."

Teammates glad to see Joseph return

It's official. Kerry Joseph is once again a Roughrider and already practiced with the Green and White on Thursday.

The last time Joseph was suited up in a Riders jersey was the eventful 2007 season that saw the team win their third Grey Cup. Even though seven years has passed, some of Joseph's teammates from that season remain on the team.

"It's always good to see an old face," said Neal Hughes. "He doesn't look like he's aged a bit and still out here throwing the ball and doing his thing."
