The University of Calgary Dinos football team will return to the field tonight for the first time since last fall's narrow loss in the Vanier Cup as its 2010 Spring Camp opens at McMahon Stadium. Approximately 100 players, both returnees and newcomers, will participate in the weekend camp which culminates in Sunday afternoon's Red-White scrimmage. The Dinos have won back-to-back Canada West championships and made their first appearance in the Vanier Cup since 1995 last season. The Dinos will return seven All-Canadians to their 2010 team, with all but one offensive starter back from the 2009 squad that lost a heartbreaking Vanier Cup 33-31 to Queen's after blowing an 18-point halftime lead.
At the centre of Nill's plans for the future of the program is the succession at quarterback, with BLG Award winner Erik Glavic entering his fifth and final year of eligibility. The weekend opens Friday afternoon with the Dinos' annual Recruit Signing Day, where the 2010 recruiting class will be introduced.

Sunday is also Draft Day in the Canadian Football League, and at least two Dinos – running back Anthony Woodson and offensive lineman Quinn McCaughan – are expected to be selected.
For three quarters, the seventh-ranked University of Manitoba Bisons were matching the second-ranked University of Calgary Dinos.
The Dinos capitalized with a touchdown that demoralized the Bisons, and, when the smoke cleared, the Dinos left Winnipeg with a 33-12 win and a perfect 3-0 record. Third-year quarterback Eric Dzwilewski posted his best passing game in CIS, completing 23 of 32 passes for 329 yards and three majors. Despite not having first team All-Canadian tailback Steven Lumbala in the lineup, the Dinos still managed to put up over 500 yards of total offence.
For the players, spring camp is an opportunity to get back on the field after a long off-season of training, while the coaching staff gets a first look at the recruiting class to aid in preparation for the 2010 season.

For the players, Spring Camp is just the first step toward returning to that stage and a shot at redemption. The backup pivot spot is up for grabs with the graduation of Deke Junior, and the coaching staff has designed many of the drills this weekend to help in their evaluation of the young quarterbacks that will look to crack the roster.
The first practice goes Friday night, followed by two sessions each day on Saturday and Sunday.
The catches added up to 182 yards and two touchdowns, including the game-winner from 33 yards early in the third quarter.
