Connor Halliday released by B.C. Lions

New, 13 comments

The former Coug lasted just two days in CFL after being signed to their practice squad

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The tides changed for WSU alum Connor Halliday Thursday, as news broke that he had been released by the CFL's B.C. LIons. Just yesterday we ran this article, but that same morning Farhan Lalji of TSN had some bad news for Halliday, and Coug fans.

This is obviously another set back in his professional career. The big question at this point is how many more times will we be saying that? There hasn't been a lot of good news on the Halliday front since in semi retirement back in May.

Michael Preston talked about it in the comments of Thursday's article, but it seems a bit odd that the reason he got cut was because of his lack of arm strength. Anyone who saw him play at WSU knew he was a gunslinger, so it's weird to think he doesn't have the arm to make it in the CFL.

This probably won't be the last we hear about Connor, there could be another tryout somewhere, but lets hope the next news is good news. That's all I want for the former QB.
