Pat Ricard could prove to be an undrafted gem for the Ravens

...As Zrebiec mentions, the Ravens have a good track record at finding undrafted talent at defensive lineman. Just last year they found Michael Pierce who had a great rookie season. That is why the Ravens front office is considered one of the best in the NFL. For them, the draft never ends after the last pick.

Hard Nose talent the Ravens love.

At 6-3, 285 pounds Ricard definitely has the frame for a defensive lineman. Add that with his hard-work mentality and the Ravens could have a very good player. A lot of these undrafted players come in with a chip on their shoulder because they didn’t get selected. We see this especially with players from smaller programs. They don’t get the same looks as all the big schools.

Former UMaine QB Dan Collins signs with CFL squad

OTTAWA, Ontario - Dan Collins showed some significant promise in his senior season at the University of Maine, and now, it's paying off with a pro contract in North America.


The Ottawa Redblacks announced Wednesday the New Jersey-native had signed a contract with the squad, becoming one of six quarterbacks competing for a roster spot. Collins will aim to make the team before opening day Aug. 10. He also joins former UMaine teammate Sherrod Baltimore on the team after Baltimore signed up north back in April.

TOM: Thanks for posting this. Always thought that Til Gloger was underrated and under used in his 4 years at UMaine. Didn't get anywhere near enough offensive touches in either his years under two different coaching regimes.

Great to see him doing so well in Germany and now into the top League there for next year.

His playing time diminished some his senior year and that was disappointing to me. Rap on him was his defense. However, why Maine didn't play their 2-3 zone when he was on the floor was a mystery to me if he wasn't up to the defense that the coaching staff desired.

He had the best scoring average per minute play his senior year and only he and Lamar Harewood had plus points per minutes played if I remember correctly.

Always looked lime a very coachable player and could find the open man when he was double downed on on the block. My kind of player.

Former UMaine hockey player, ex-Islanders coach joins Florida Panthers’ staff

Five months after being fired by the New York Islanders, Jack Capuano has a new coaching job.

Capuano, a former University of Maine defenseman and Bangor resident who was deposed by the Islanders in January, has been named an associate head coach with the Florida Panthers, the team announced on Friday afternoon.

The native of Cranston, Rhode Island, will join the staff of newly hired head coach Bob Boughner.

“I am extremely excited to join the Florida Panthers organization,” said Capuano in a statement released by the Panthers. “I want to thank Vinnie Viola and Doug Cifu for putting their trust in me and Dale for giving me an opportunity to work with Bob, one of the great young minds in the game. My familiarity with the Panthers has grown a lot throughout the past few years and I’m eager to work with such a young, talented group of players.”
