The NCAA drops the puck today on their mens hockey tournament and there will be no shortage of Canadians on the ice as 16 teams try to make their first step to becoming National Champions. The tournament includes a total of 109 Canadian players. There are 35 players from Ontario, 35 from British Columbia, 18 from Alberta and seven each from Quebec, Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Many of those players are trying to follow in the footsteps of several successful Canadian NHLers who went to college, including four members of the gold-medal-winning Sochi Olympic team: Jonathan Toews (North Dakota), Martin St. Louis (Vermont), Patrick Sharp (Vermont) and Chris Kunitz (Ferris State). "I think that if more Canadian families were exposed to what college can do — as parents for your kid socially, athletically and academically ... I think more people would be doing it," said University of Denver coach Jim Montgomery, a Montreal native who went to Maine and ended up playing 122 NHL games. Among the 945 players to see NHL action this season, 100 were Canadians who played at a U.S. college. Naturally, many went the more traditional road, through the QMJHL, OHL or WHL. But the NCAA is slowly becoming another acceptable way to get there. "Theres no wrong path," Phoenix Coyotes assistant general manager Brad Treliving said. "I think as a Canadian guy you grew up and youre around major junior hockey more, so ... youre closer to it than you are U.S. colleges, but, jeez, theres no wrong answer. Its an individual choice and theres benefits to both." Treliving said major junior hockey is the "quicker" path to the NHL because it has more of a pro-style schedule and grind. But others point to colleges 40-game season as a better chance for some players to develop. Theres more opportunity to lift weights and practice. "Theres the Sidney Crosbys and the Ovechkins and the Malkins of the world that could grow under a rock and are going to play in the NHL," Montgomery said. "Theres other perfect examples — elite players like the Paul Kariyas of the world. Those are the ones everyone knows but its like, did he really need to go to college? Well, Paul Kariya needed to go to college because he was 155 pounds and in 18 months of college he was 175 pounds ready to play against 30-year-old men that are 225 pounds. "It teaches you how to be a man quick." Perhaps some notoriety can come from watching this NCAA tournament. Boston College defenceman Michael Matheson (Pointe-Claire, Que.) is a first-round pick and top prospect for the Florida Panthers, while Quinnipiac has Connor and Kellen Jones (Montrose, B.C.) and Matthew Peca(Petawawa, Ont.). Wisconsin goaltender Joel Rumpel (Swift Current, Sask.) has been one of the best in the country this season and could soon follow in the footsteps of other recent Canadian college players like Matt Read, Ben Scrivens and Cory Conacher who have signed NHL contracts. Hamilton brothers Greg and Matt Carey recently signed deals with the Coyotes and Chicago Blackhawks, respectively, after playing at St. Lawrence University in upstate New York. Greg Carey came away satisfied with his direction, which was only possible because playing tier-2 junior hockey opened him up to the world of U.S. colleges. "You have friends, older friends on your team who have the ability to go and to head down to the States and play and it looks like a lot of fun," Carey said in a phone interview. "And then you get to go on your visits and you get exposed to this world that you really dont see as a Canadian kid growing up. We see a lot of the major junior with the Dub and the O and the Q and the NHL is right there, front and centre, so we dont really get the NCAA." Looking at the tournament from an NHL draft perspective, the top eligible player in the tournament, according to Craig Buttons rankings, is Boston Colleges starting goalie Thatcher Demko. Demko posted a .921 save percentage and 2.13 goals against average in 21 starts this season. Jaleel Scott Ravens Jersey .

Thats how the Ravens won when Ryan was their defensive co-ordinator from 2005-08, and that is precisely the formula Baltimore used to beat Ryans New York Jets on Sunday.LEXINGTON, Ky. -- A touchdown pass helped Teddy Bridgewater overcome one of his slowest starts in recent memory. Everything else soon fell into place for No. 7 Louisville, with a big boost from running back Senorise Perry. Perry ran for 100 yards and two touchdowns and Bridgewater overcame a shaky start to pass for 250 yards and the Cardinals scored on four consecutive drives to pull away from rival Kentucky for a 27-13 victory on Saturday. Louisvilles rebound followed a halftime tongue-lashing by coach Charlie Strong, who was upset with his offence. They responded with 339 second-half yards en route to outgaining Kentucky 492-376. "I was kind of (upset) at half because I knew we werent playing our best football," Strong said. "I had some really good words for them. ... We hadnt played our best with our offence in the first half but defensively, we had. "I knew eventually we would pick up on offence because we just have too many good players not to." Fortunately for the Cardinals, Louisvilles best player had already started making adjustments. Bridgewater connected with DeVante Parker for a 13-yard touchdown just before halftime that opened things up for Louisville (3-0). The quarterback said he didnt feel like his timing was off, but conceded that he wasnt as accurate as he could have been. The point was to keep pushing. "You never carry one play into the next play," he said after completing 16 of 28 attempts. "If I throw a bad ball one play then I just try to hit the next one." Perry followed with second-half TD runs of 1 and 36 yards sandwiched around John Wallaces 21-yard field goal that provided a cushion. He finished with 100 yards on 11 carries to help the Cardinals earn their third straight Governors Cup. The Cardinals defence held Kentucky to 0 for 13 on third downs and forced three turnovers, including two in their territory on consecutive possessions to preserve a win that required more work after easy wins over Ohio and Eastern Kentucky. "Thats just good to show that we focused on the money down," Louisville middle linebacker Preston Brown said. "Third down is a big down for us. We got off the field when we needed to." Alex Montgomery caught a 3-yard touchdown pass from Jalen Whitlow in the fourth quarrter and Joe Mansour kicked two field goals for Kentucky (1-2).ddddddddddddWhitlow and starting quarterback Maxwell Smith combined to complete just 17 of 37 passes for 214 yards for the Wildcats. Smith left in the third quarter after injuring his shoulder, and Kentucky coach Mark Stoops said he was unsure of his status. The Wildcats have a bye week before facing No. 18 Florida on Sept. 28. "I felt like we had a good plan," the coach said. "I felt like our guys were starting to play more aggressive, make them earn their yards. ... It was disappointing that we had a couple of turnovers. We had our opportunities." Bridgewater returned to Commonwealth Stadium for the first time since directing a 24-17 victory in 2011 that helped launch a career that includes Heisman hopes this season. He got off to a slow start as Kentuckys defence kept him and his receivers in check for much of the first half. He had just 58 yards through one quarter and looked especially out of sync in throwing behind Robert Clark after the Cardinals recovered a Whitlow fumble at the Wildcats 27. Wallace salvaged the drive with a 36-yard field goal for a 3-0 lead. But Kentuckys offence couldnt take advantage as receivers dropped passes from Smith -- who took all but two snaps in the first half -- while Raymond Sanders fumbled a handoff at the Louisville 13 late in the second quarter. The turnover ended a chance for the Wildcats to tie the game after Bridgewater finally got untracked to hit a leaping Parker over two defenders in the left corner with 2:36 left in the half. "We call them ball fetchers and thats the reason why," Bridgewater said of Parker. "Just throw it up and let them go get it." Dominique Brown helped set up Louisvilles first score with five straight carries for 27 yards to the Kentucky 15. The Cardinals momentum continued into the second half as Perry sandwiched his TD runs around Wallaces 21-yard field goal for a 27-3 lead that ensured theyd be carrying the Governors Cup again. "All games are big games but this game is a little different and thats why we had to go out and prepare the way we did," Strong said. "We just had to make sure we had the focus and the confidence to believe that we could come in here and beat them."
