Stamps shocker: Canadian quarterback Andrew Buckley retires

Canadian quarterback Andrew Buckley has retired from football after getting into medical school.

The Calgary Stampeders made the announcement on Monday morning.

“I’ve been accepted into medical school at the University of Calgary and it was an opportunity I couldn’t pass on,” Buckley said in a statement. “Studying medicine has been my goal since I was young and this is the right time in my life to pursue it.”

Buckley, a Calgary native, has been the Stamps’ back up and short-yardage quarterback the last two seasons and made his first career start last year against Winnipeg. For his career, he registered 57 career carries for 157 yards and 11 touchdowns while completing 33 of 44 passes for 326 yards and one touchdown.

Buckley was a seventh-round selection out of the University of Calgary in 2015 and is two-time winner of the Hec Crighton Trophy as the top player in Canadian university football.

“We’re sorry to lose Andrew but we certainly wish him the best in his studies and his future career,” said Stampeders president and general manager John Hufnagel. “We enjoyed Andrew’s time with the Red and White and thank him for everything he did for the organization.”

The move leaves Ricky Stanzi, who threw eight passes in his rookie season last year, as the only other quarterback on the roster behind starter Bo Levi Mitchell.

  1. Wow. That is a shocker, but what can you say, a great opportunity for him.

    • I heard he was getting out of the game because he had a stalker dressed head to toe in red – following him around on a scooter, with a big stamps flag.

      He seemed to have tourettes like outbursts, often shouting unintelligible statements, praising Chris Jones, and professiing his love for the Riders.

      • Jeremiah was a bullfrog // May 7, 2018 at 3:25 pm //

        Great story to hear the young man is going to become an M.D.
        he was given a chance to study in a 1st institute or dress for a team that plays in a barn atmosphere with their Redneck home made 18 wheeler weight trailer. hahaha You should see that thing. It’s so fricken Redneck only a team sporting Red could come up with something like that!

        • Mr Red // May 7, 2018 at 3:35 pm //

          There is no 18 wheeler weight room. Try again.

          • Jeremiah was a bullfrog // May 7, 2018 at 3:59 pm //

            Call it what you will Red. I may have embellished the amount of wheels. It’s still a portable weight room. Plus you have to know it’s a tit for tat with Yup. The only difference is the portable weight room is real. Yups imaginary scooter dude is not.

          • Bullfrog – the scooter story is true. DAKAZ stopped to help him on the Yellow head 🙂

        • Mr Red // May 8, 2018 at 9:10 am //

          That is categorically wrong. There is absolutely no portable weight room at McMahon stadium. The weight room is permanently built within the structure of the players facility. Come to Fan fest on Saturday and see for yourself

  2. The world needs doctors more than it needs short yardage on 3rd down Canadian quarterbacks. Good luck to the young man!

  3. Awaiting Moderation // May 7, 2018 at 10:32 am //

    Potential future team doctor for the Stamps!
    Good luck to Andrew.

    I am curious to see who the Stamps find as their new back up QB.

  4. rider fan // May 7, 2018 at 10:36 am //

    Good luck to Mr Buckley, to bad to see this happen. Was hoping he would get some playing time , being a Canadian. Well with BLM there not much chance playing I guess. The Stamps will bee on the hunt, I hear Johnny is still free.

  5. Michael Kulyk // May 7, 2018 at 10:39 am //

    “If I’d only gotten to be a doctor for five minutes… now that would have been a tragedy.” – field of dreams
    ————–
    good luck / bonne chance

  6. Noah Picton for the Stamps?

    • Why?
      The guy is too short and never played a down as a pro or at the NCAA level.
      Wouldn’t hurt to bring him to camp though and see if he can throw in the pro

  7. Buckley took a step back last year anyways. Huff will find the next one, no doubt about it

  8. Definitely the RIGHT MOVE by Buckley. A good guy, teammate and player who once he becomes a medical DR. he will have a much bigger effect on society vs being a Canadian QB hopefully setting a new trend in the CFL. Plenty of QBs to replace him. Maybe the kid from Regina can get a shot at replacing him.

  9. Something people may not know, Dave Dickenson almost got into medical school too.

  10. Good: bad news for Stamps. Stamps urgently require 2nd QB as cannot survive CFL w/o one. There’s a lesson learned here: Stock up as many quality QBs in off season. One never knows who will be gone . Well, Huff/Dickenson probably knew. Congrats to Buckley in med school.

    • Stamps and Eskimos did pretty well with 1 QB in 2017

      • CFLFIRST // May 7, 2018 at 1:15 pm //

        Assuming your number 1 QB will miss time due to injury is not really a great plan for success. Good thing you’re not a GM. Mitchell could very well go the entire year without injury, but if he gets a season ending injury game 1 they could be staring last place in the face. The CFL isn’t flag football

      • Richard Cunningham // May 7, 2018 at 2:58 pm //

        Edmonton had Franklin ready to go if Mike went down. He was was able to get a full season in with the help of his O-line and not taking as many stupid hits running the ball and not sliding correctly.

  11. Had a great laugh thinking back to all the proclamations about this gimp being the next Russ Jackson.

    Had an even greater laugh thinking back to the 2016 Grey Cup and the goal line collapse.

    • Maybe he’ll save yours, or a life of a loved one some day Area51.

    • I guess you forgot about Buckley beating his season record for rushing touchdowns. Hard to shine when you’re not given a decent opportunity aside from third down conversions.

  12. It’s a bigger lose to the rest of league. Not a big lose to the stumps. He wasn’t very good to begin with. They still need to find a second string qb(even having Buckley for 2 years). If baby bo goes down, game over for them.

    • yawn
      When will you ever learn RobE?
      Everytime the Stamps loss someone, rider fame gleefully predict gloom for the Stamps, it never happens!

      • sheesh,Rob E, and Red, did you guys have the same English teacher, and/or sleep in the same English class? robe says “it’s a bigger lose”…should have written loss…then red answers”everytime the Stamps loss” should have written lose…and, BTW, every and time are 2 separate words…
        AND, BTW, If BO Mitchell ( I leave out the Levi middle, because I don’t see any other narcissistic players wanting to be identified by 2 given names) goes down, given his bad shoulder, does anyone really think that the next guy up will give them the same production? Remember when DD went down, they were a first place club, then floundered badly. (ya, sure, red, they were useless with or without him, and their record was achieved with mirrors, and gainer could have done a better job than doubles, and Buckley was a better QB than Doubles..blah, blah, blah…and…you can thank me now, red, because I saved you the trouble of trying to put together coherent sentences in rebuttal.

        • My my, I wish I had all the time to read and comment on all of the grammatical errors on a football site. Must kill you every time someone misuses their, there and they’re.

          Back to football, yes.. the Stamps would be in a world of hurt if they lost Bo. No doubt about it. They simply have no back up plan, I think Huff got caught sleeping on this one.

          • Mr Red // May 7, 2018 at 3:17 pm //

            Are you comparing the Stamps to the Alouettes??? That’s laughable. If we were the Alouettes we would have rode with Henry Burris and not make the hard decision and process of going in a new direction……sorry nice try.

          • I think Bo’s on a short leash after that easy pick-six he gave to a wide receiver dressed in green and white. In fact, I’m certain Duron haunts certain stamps fans even to this day.

          • actually Rob…nobody has THAT MUCH time, as almost all of the posts are full of that stuff. I like your retorts to the crimson crier. I just couldn’t help myself when I saw that each of one of you used lose and loss in consecutive posts, with each guy using the opposite one incorrectly. It was good for a laugh. As for the 3 faces of there…it happens all the time…sometimes I use the wrong one, not out of ignorance, but the letters just roll off your fingers, when the mind is tired, or pre-occupied watching a game, like I am doing now.
            The one that really bugs me is: should have. The contraction is should’ve, but I often see, even the paid columnists, writing should of. Our school system is dysfunctional.

        • Mr Red // May 7, 2018 at 2:41 pm //

          Yeah I remember when DD went down. You couldn’t win a game. That’s because you had a 1 dimensional team. Calgary starters went down in 2012- We went to the Cup, 1999- we went to cup.
          People predicted Calgary’s downfall after we moved on from Flutie, Garcia, Dickenson and Burris…….Calgary will be fine.

          • Keep telling yourself that Little Red riding hood. Even the mighty Alouettes of the mid 2000’s- early 2010’s eventually fell. Just a matter of time for it to happen to you.

          • I still think Bo’s on a short leash. And with Buckley now retired, calgary’s got big problems. Roy, rather Red, maybe consider cheering for the Roughriders. Calgary’s in big trouble.

      • True green // May 8, 2018 at 12:56 am //

        Contrary to your line of thinking, not all Rider fans are happy to see injury or loss with opposing teams. Perhaps you are projecting your own unhealthy mindset on others.

    • Stamps are hurting only ONE other QB on their roster going into camp – Ricky Stanzi.

      Other teams have at least 4 QBs going into camp, the Riders with 4, Esks have 5, Bomber have 5, Ottawa 4, Argos 5, Ticats 4, Als 5.

      • White Horse // May 7, 2018 at 11:48 am //

        Jeff…you just spout off about something you know nothing about. I guarantee you the Stamps have three or four QB’s at camp. Buckley’s announcement was held back till now for management purposes.

    • The riders won 10 games last year with no QB, the Stamps defence is even better! Why can’t they win 11 or 12??

      • rider fan // May 7, 2018 at 1:13 pm //

        Mr red the riders had a poor record to start with they did well in the second half of the season. If they can pick up where they left off they will do well . Look forward to the season.

        • greenenvy? // May 7, 2018 at 2:38 pm //

          Not exactly true. The Riders hit their peak in games 7-9 when they won dominantly over 3 Western opponents. Yes, they were 8-4 over the last 12 games but after that 3 game stretch the last half they were 5-4. And they only won 1 more game vs the West over the season. So you have to keep it in perspective. The Riders, after being humiliated in BC benefitted somewhat by BC not showing up next week in Regina. TSN recorded Bono’s pre-game comments where he was disgusted by his team & basically wrapped up the pep talk by saying he thought they weren’t prepared. The other 2 games following were a beatdown of Wpg & a very injured Esk squad. The Riders also were, in turn, dominated by those same 4 Western clubs in games. This year will be interesting because no one will take them lightly. Have they got a better team? To quote a CFL writer – “they’re different but are they better”? I think Riders weren’t quite as bad as a 5 team club in 2016 & may not have been quite as good as a 10 win club in 2017. We’ll find out.

          • greenenvy? // May 7, 2018 at 2:40 pm //

            I should add the Riders have an excellent chance to start hot this season, opening with 5 games vs the East. Not to say the East will be the same pushover. But I could see them going 4-1, even 5-0 to start. The opener with Argos will be a tough one but they get them at home.

          • The same could be said by the Riders in their final game against Edmonton. They rested 5 or 6 of their starters and were one point behind the Eskimos midway through the fourth quarter. That game in Regina could’ve gone either way.

        • Mr Red // May 7, 2018 at 3:11 pm //

          You lost 2 of your last 3 games. Not exactly stellar.

    • I’m pretty sure the QB position is pretty important. We had 2 backup qbs running our offense… and still got 10 wins. You had your starting QB playing.. Imagine if he went down. You guys could barely score points by the end of the year with him.

  13. Just saying // May 7, 2018 at 11:28 am //

    Hey red It’s funny how one minute he’s a world beater and the next I quote …. Buckley took a step back last year anyways. Your new name should be red coloured glasses.

  14. Bo'stheBest // May 7, 2018 at 11:31 am //

    Collaros would be a good fit, once the Riders cut him in camp

  15. The Stamps are going to have to do some scrambling and find some QBs for camp.
    All other team have 4 or 5 on their rosters

    • The Stamps new this day was coming, they knew Buckley’s plan was medical school and a Stamp career was plan B. Huff might just call up Chris Jones and dance with him into another bad rider trade.

      • Oh hey Red. I see you’re here again spewing garbage like the senile old man you are. Section F you said right? Those are the cheap seats aren’t they? Haha. Deadbeat.

    • Bo'stheBest // May 7, 2018 at 2:49 pm //

      If you are looking for scrambling Brandon Bridge “to Nowhere” might be the guy!

  16. Green Apples // May 7, 2018 at 11:53 am //

    Good for Andrew, he’s making the right decision. Under normal circumstances he would have played a couple more years, but this decision certainly speaks to a bad culture within this franchise as well depleted, deteriorating facilities at McMahon.

  17. Stanzi is still on the Stumps roster? Wasn’t he the guy who threw a temper tantrum in KC? Haha what a joke the Stumps are.

  18. Stamps Fans who need money and attention // May 7, 2018 at 12:05 pm //

    Here comes Johnny Football to the Stampede City! Make it happen Huff!

    • Yes Manziel to Calgary guarantees grey cup. For all the negative Hamilton bloggers re Manziel this would be perfect since you do t think he will even get in the field. Lol

  19. BigRedMachine // May 7, 2018 at 12:09 pm //

    Maybe Tate gets a second chance in Calgary. Surprised Stanzi is still on the team…

    • Rick Stanzi was a disaster at Iowa. Constantly making dumb decisions in the pocket and didn’t have any accuracy beyond 15yds.

      No idea why the Stamps braintrust would waste their time on this guy.

  20. Wideout // May 7, 2018 at 12:17 pm //

    I’m thinking Mith Gale might get a call for a second round with the Stamps. Always thought he was pretty serviceable when he played.

  21. solara2000 // May 7, 2018 at 12:18 pm //

    How about Noah Picton? He could hide behind the hogs on 3rd down and short plays.

  22. And another Stamps players leaves the disfunctional organization….good for him for pursuing medical degree, probably makes more than Huff and little Dick combined going that route.

  23. Buckley sucked anyway and was just another body on a bloated and over hyped roster. Stamps are winning 7 games this year at best. Sorry Stamps fans!

  24. They will probably trade Edmonton for Kevin Glenn

    • Darren // May 7, 2018 at 2:29 pm //

      Oh, I like this … I doubt it and get you are kidding … but that would simply be awesome!

      • greenenvy? // May 7, 2018 at 3:38 pm //

        One can only hope but not likely when hosting the GC. One & done in Edmonton. Maybe this year Glenn gets the Cup. That means Reilly plays all year.

        • Darren // May 7, 2018 at 9:22 pm //

          I would trade Glenn for a a bag of used footballs and it wouldn’t impact the Esks negatively in any way.

  25. Hmmmm….priority one, for them: protect the QB. Better put one of those Michelin tire bubble suits on Bo, to protect him!

    sheesh,Rob E, and Red, did you guys have the same English teacher, and/or sleep in the same English class? robe says “it’s a bigger lose”…should have written loss…then red answers”everytime the Stamps loss” should have written lose…and, BTW, every and time are 2 separate words…
    AND, BTW, If BO Mitchell ( I leave out the Levi middle, because I don’t see any other narcissistic players wanting to be identified by 2 given names) goes down, given his bad shoulder, does anyone really think that the next guy up will give them the same production? Remember when DD went down, they were a first place club, then floundered badly.

  26. Can’t blame the man for building his future. Wish him well.

  27. Huff's Neighbor // May 7, 2018 at 12:57 pm //

    Smart move by an obviously very smart person. Good luck.

  28. Tiger man // May 7, 2018 at 1:16 pm //

    With NFLers retiring after only a couple of seasons, we should be surprised at this announcement??

    Wish you well, Andrew.

    • Cat Fan // May 7, 2018 at 2:34 pm //

      ??? … why would NFLers retiring be more relevant than Sandy Beveridge’s number for a job as a fire fighter coming up so that he retired part way through the 2010 season?

      For that matter – why is a retirement to pursue school or a different job all that shocking?

  29. Scottsask // May 7, 2018 at 1:38 pm //

    Too bad the league will be down a Canadian Qb. Best of luck to you Andrew.

  30. Ditchbanger // May 7, 2018 at 1:52 pm //

    Maybe the riders can deal Vince Uoung to the stamps.

    Hear he’s looking for work

    • Dig your own ditch already. I’ll throw you in and tell your mom you’re okay.

  31. Sad to see a promising Canadian QB hang up the cleats, but can fully understand his choice here. Best wishes on this next professional journey that he’s beginning.

  32. Mr Red // May 7, 2018 at 3:01 pm //

    riders fans are loving this. Enjoy because that annual jolt of reality is about to bit you.
    Here’s a preview
    Branden Bridge Eastern Final…..11/21 141 yards..WOW!!
    If that doesn’t say HOF QB I don’t know what does!

    • that may be OK, if they play in a snowbowl, and Messam rumbles for 188 yards, and the Riders win.
      BTW, Bridge is a talent. It wouldn’t surprise me if becomes a starter sooner than later.

  33. Darren // May 7, 2018 at 3:15 pm //

    Looks stupid now to have developed Andrew Buckley over Ricky Stanzi last year. It is almost a certainty that Bo Levi Mitchell will take his NFL shot at the end of 2018 and that means Ricky Stanzi better get some legit game reps in 2018 behind BLM. Huff has to be calling Brandon Silvers to beg him to come to camp.

    Stamps fans need to pray that Dickenson is smart enough to give 3 or 4 starts to Stanzi this year and that the young QB responds. Stanzi ran a Pro-Style West Coast offense in Iowa and that will help, but he needs pro reps this season to ensure the Stamps avoid collapsing and having to rebuild when BLM leaves for the NFL.

    Now before you even say it … yes Stamps fans BLM is on record with ESPN last training camp as to want to take an NFL shot when his contract is up. The direct quote from Mitchell last spring was, “Just now in training camp, there were seven or eight scouts who came in. I know there’s been some talk in the NFL about me. When my time comes, the NFL has been my dream since I was a kid. I’ll take that shot.”

    Looks like the Stamps are going into a transition year without Buckley and young QB in Stanzi who has almost no reps.

    • Mr Red // May 7, 2018 at 3:23 pm //

      That interview is from awhile ago.
      This off season, both Bo and Huff have indicated they expect a new contract will be signed after the new CBA is in place

      • greenenvy? // May 7, 2018 at 3:44 pm //

        True Red. But BLM either takes it next year or not at all. The other factor is the CBA. I think it will be a tough go this time around. If the season is delayed, greater chance he ends up in an NFL camp.

      • Darren // May 7, 2018 at 9:25 pm //

        That interview is from last year’s training camp and nothing has changed, but nice try … if there is a new contract read to go, I would bet it involved Huff yelling SHOW ME THE MONEY! Nice try Jerry McGuire … Vegas is giving 3 to 1 Bo walks at the end of 2018. LMAO!

        • Problem is: he may, indeed, walk….away from football if his shoulder gets banged up again.

  34. Mr Red // May 7, 2018 at 5:47 pm //

    So Calgary is in trouble because they lack the proper depth at QB, but when I point out the lack of Canadian depth on the riders O-line I’m basically called stupid.
    Interesting how out minds work to provide us with comfort

    • It’s pretty clear why folks on here call you stupid, and it has nothing to do with Calgary or the Riders. It’s your personality (or complete lack thereof)

      • Yup, the poor guy seems to be second-guessing himself. It’s pretty clear his first thoughts were probably right.

        • 89 – did you just say he had a “thought”??

          • That’s a rarity, isn’t that. I’ll have to be more careful how I write. I think he’s ignoring us, Yup. I was going to ask him for another stamps flag. The last one actually changed colours. It still lingers behind the scrub brush.

    • Did you ever think Red that if everyone’s calling you stupid, they may be right? Just wondering?

      • Mr Red // May 7, 2018 at 6:31 pm //

        Did you ever think greenrider89 that if everyone is telling you the riders are going to suck, except other rider fans, they might be right?
        Just wondering.

        • Ah, you’re communicating with me, Roy. I thought I lost communication with you for a moment. The answer to your question is anything is possible. It’s just like the news I received about BLM being on a short leash with management.

        • “Everyone” consists mostly of you, and your multiple personalities.

          • Boy, isn’t that the real deal!!! Let’s see, horse turds, horsee, white horse, red horse, green horse, yellow horse. I call that a real personality disorder. What’s he going to do if BLM is relegated to the bench???

          • Mr Red // May 7, 2018 at 6:52 pm //

            For the last several weeks I’ve been Mr Red, no one else.
            Funny I’m accused of this when someone else is clearly impersonating me at time, but I’m sure you’d know nothing about that

          • To be quite honest, Roy (or, Red), I really don’t care, so you might be right. But I’m here for a good time, just like yourself. And I’ll continue to throw my little jabs at you when I’m in the right mood. At least, I’ll try to keep you honest that way.

            Maybe I will stop in. You wearing the red unitard again? More importantly, will the outriders be there?

        • Mr Red // May 7, 2018 at 6:56 pm //

          Yes the outriders are there. They will be in one huddle and you’ll find me in the middle. If not, simply look for the smartest best looking guy there, that will be me.
          You can meet Huff and enter the mecca of football- the Calgary Stampeders locker room.

  36. Unfortunate but one can’t blame Buckley for moving on to his long term career goal when the opportunity presents itself. Stamps will have to bring in another couple of QBs I would think to provide some competition and throwing arms in training camp. It’s quite likely that they knew losing Buckley was a possibility so may well have a plan in place to fill the void.

  37. Green=Money // May 7, 2018 at 6:50 pm //

    Maybe Kevin what’s his name will come back. The old owners kid who couldn’t remember which arm he threw with.

    • Mr Red // May 7, 2018 at 7:07 pm //

      The one dark era of the past 30 years for the mighty Stampeders

      • Green=Money // May 7, 2018 at 7:25 pm //

        Why do you think Freddy shoes was a dark time?

        • Mr Red // May 7, 2018 at 7:33 pm //

          Why? Did you see what went on during that time?
          The team was a mess, mainly because the owner wanted his son to start at QB, Every hire and fire was with this in mind. Dark days for Fans.

          • Green=Money // May 7, 2018 at 8:13 pm //

            I quite enjoyed it:)

          • Mr Red // May 7, 2018 at 8:48 pm //

            I bet you did. Just think those 3 years gave you a taste of the glee Stamp fans have pretty much every year watching the riders

  38. Seriously – this is a big loss for Calgary. Manyhandles must be beside himself, and himself, and himself……..:)

    • Mr Red // May 7, 2018 at 7:00 pm //

      How big of a loss it is; we’ll never know.
      You were probably qiddy when Calgary traded Burris is 2011 off season. Our QB situation turned out pretty well didn’t it?

  39. Mr Red // May 7, 2018 at 7:11 pm //

    So looking into this more. Part of Buckley’s decision was realizing he would never be the starter. He knows BLM’s resigning is imminent.

  40. Mr Red // May 7, 2018 at 7:54 pm //

    I will bet any riderfan that Ricky Stanzi is a better QB than Branden Bridge

  41. Dude Stanzi is a joke. Do you even know what that guy did? Christ. Look into his behaviour and that’s why is on your sh*tty team

  42. Bridge crushes Stanzi, how retrded are our Red? Stanzi? Seriously? Hahaha. That guy is a PUNK

  43. Ron Bates // May 7, 2018 at 9:08 pm //

    Too bad and it’s too bad he can not fit in Medical School the way the KC Chief from Quebec has. Too bad!

    Bridge is on the long list of QB’s who are tremendous athletes but can’t throw a ball with accuracy. 11 for 21 in the East Final proves this. With film on this guy now, teams will study his tendencies, it will be pick city!

  45. It is BRANDON BRIDGE. And, with his limited first-team reps that week, and against a stingy Argo D, not at all surprising. Besides, he was trying to do too much because he knew that CJ would be quick with the hook.
    BTW, is that a Zombie party?

    • Well he certainly didn’t do too much. He in fact, did too little. Besides terrible completion percentage, Bridge only had the ball in scoring position twice. 1 TD and 1 field goal. This is a trend that he follows most games too.

  46. Besides, good old Huff would give the few still-operative hair follicles he has, to get Bridge.

  47. To compare. Bo’s first playoff game, he was 2 years younger than Bridge. Was 14/22 336 yards 4 TDS and 0 INT.
    Against a Chris Jones coached team!!!!!!

  48. What a m o r o n !
    In case you haven’t noticed, Bridge carries a Canadian birth certificate, which has a certain stigma attached to it. (ask google what that means) So, there is very little opportunity for a Canuck, even if talented, to land a starting job. Even the rules carry a bias with the stipulation of 3 QBs of any designation. I know it may be difficult for you, and probably hurts a lot, but, at least, try to think just a little bit before you spew BS. Failing that, the old adage is: a fool’s wisdom is in his silence.

  49. Rumour has it Buckley was bored of playing doctor in the locker room so he is giving the real thing a try

    The big concern is how many players are leaving or retiring at a young age since coach Dave has taken over. That kinda makes me nervous.
