    Yes it was, and I apologize. My frustration got the better of me, not that that constitutes an excuse.

    I have worked with folks who have Down's for many years. And -while it's always dangerous to generalize- I have yet to meet one person so "afflicted" who was not a warm, genuine and delightful human being... It's amazing how good we can be when we have no sense of ego.

    Again, I made a thoughtless remark out of exasperation, and my sincere regrets are extended to all of you who have had the privilege to know and love someone who was born with Down's.

      SUNYAC Preseason Poll Here.

      SUNY Plattsburgh has been ranked No. 1 in the 2013-14 State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) men's ice hockey preseason poll after receiving seven first place votes and 63 total votes from the conference coaches.

      Plattsburgh finished the 2012-13 season No. 2 in the conference, 13-2-1 and 19-7-1 overall. The Cardinals last won the SUNYAC Championship in 2011-12 and have won four of the last six conference titles and 21 overall. In 2011-12 they made their fifth consecutive trip to the NCAA tournament.

      With 54 points and two first place votes, defending SUNYAC Champion Oswego State ranked second in the preseason poll. Last year, the Lakers won the regular season title and ended 14-2 in the conference and 25-5 overall. Oswego finished the season as the National Runner-up, falling 5-3 to UW-Eau in the 2012 NCAA Championship game which marked their fourth-straight Frozen Four appearance.

      SUNYAC ice hockey conference games begin tomorrow, November 1. The six-team SUNYAC tournament will start February 26 on campuses with the top-two teams receiving a first-round bye. The SUNYAC semifinals will be played March 1 and the championship game is set for March 8 on the campus of the higher seed.
