THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM. Western players look on at Western's training camp. Little did they know they would be facing an 0-1 record after losing to Windsor 25-16.

The Mustangs football team feels they're an improved team with the potential to do great things. Despite their opening day upset loss on Monday to Windsor - their first loss to Windsor in our lifetime - the team is still confident and should be one of the top contenders in Ontario University Athletics.

A huge test for the Mustangs will come on Sep. 13 at TD Waterhouse Stadium when they face the Queen's Golden Gaels. Queen's defeated Western 55-20 in last years OUA semi-finals and players have that date circled on their calendar.

Other key games for the Mustangs are on Homecoming weekend, Sep. 20 versus Ottawa and Oct. 4 when they travel to Hamilton to take on the defending Yates Cup champions, the McMaster Marauders.

Haylor is confident going into the season but knows it won't be an easy year in the competitive OUA.

"We have long and short term goals. We want to be competitive, play our best and be the best we can each week. The best teams don't always win," he said, but added "The possibility of being a great team is real."
