    Plattsburgh is getting off lightly. No mention of Houle lying about not knowing to investigators about beer on the bus... the video is bad bad bad. How could he not know? The AD was on the bus too. Under age drinking? Scott, do you have proof of your Norwich claim?

    I'm pretty sure that #9 is out. I would never let my daughter go to this program, players are whiners and the fans/ parents are arrogant jerks. The school is terrible, the town is gross.

    Don't lie, don't ever lie! Get your hands on the video and you'll see the lies and arrogance. This is absolutely disgusting behavior.

    Proof? It was a quick encounter as I was leaving to start my drive home. I wasn't wearing a wire nor asked the front desk for their tape of a man in Norwich hockey gear approaching me at the front desk. Though had I know what was coming I would have tried for the tape. I have no proof other than my own recollection but I am confident enough to swear out under penalty of perjury the encounter happened. Granted, could have been a parent and the plane he was referring to was not the team plane, but I doubt it.

    Wait...you mean some college hockey players had a few beers? Shocking..just simply Shocking news. The PC nation we have become is just a joke. Back in my day [lol] there were beers on the team bus coming home from away games. I know...it was.... just terrible. [and the coaches were there drinking a few too]...snowflakes everywhere these days.

    You are simply starting rumors to lessen the behavior of PSU. A man? A dad? We are talking about a team(many below 21) taking pictures with the NCAA Championship Trophy with beers in hand on the team bus with the Coach & AD present.

    I can't argue about being snowflakes... but the Rules are the rules, sometimes arrogance lets one believe they are above written rules. They broke major NCAA rules.

    Who punished UST? NCAA? The conference? The school itself?

    I'm not saying they didn't break the rules. At this point, I'm not going to argue the punishment. What I will say is that Plattsburgh were the only ones caught posting it in social media. Anybody who kept their eyes open in the lobby of Arrington Arena that Saturday saw players from all 4 teams bringing in bags of "mysterious cylindrical objects that were totally not cans of beer" to the locker rooms. Again, like Scott, I personally witnessed this and thought nothing of it.

    Plattsburgh is guilty. End of story. But to pretend that they did anything that the other 3 teams didn't (except perhaps post on social media) is either naive or ignorant.

    I completely agree with you. Show me a team that doesn't drink/celebrate....at any level beyond youth hockey (BTW the drinking age in Canada is either 18 or 19, but that's a story for another day)! It's totally unfortunate that they got caught.

    But, if the UST story is right, I will say that the team's high profile and success was part of the reason they got off lightly compared to that.

    Has post-game drinking been the norm at the national championship in the past? Sounds like that's what some people on here are saying. Why is this the first we're hearing about this type of behavior at the national championship?

    If you have to ask if drinking is a norm for college athletes you should probably take a left instead of a right out from under the rock with all due respect. This isn't hazing or some sort of binge drinking party.

    Can you not read?! That's not what I asked. You must have gone to Plattsburgh where literacy is not important. Drinking is obviously a norm for college students in general, not just college athletes. My question once again was, "Has post-game drinking been the norm at the national championship in the past?"

    Don't most/all schools/athletic departments have a zero tolerance policy for drugs and alcohol? Schools/athletic departments/AD's can't have it both ways and punish some kids for breaking this policy during the school year (and we all know it happens every year across the country), but then have an unwritten exception for those that make it to the national championship.

    Im sorry, maybe your Chest Club didn't have beer parties after the Championships....

    No, I did read...and responded....College Hockey Players are College Athletes. College Athletes are College Students. Most College Students partake in some sort of "against the rules" policy. Most College Hockey Players AKA College Students will PARTY after winning a Championship, especially when they are of age. If they kicked every kid out of school for alcohol they wouldn't have a freakn college. What cupcake world do you live in? People get busted all the time on a "dry" campus and get issued a college security appearance ticket 99% of the time. One of the only times you see people expelled/suspended is when there is malicious intent (hazing) or when someone gets hurt. Like I said...if you're asking these questions like you want to act like drinking doesn't happen ("dont most/all schools/athletic departments have a zero tolerance policy..." blah blah blah....I ask what rock you live under. AD's, Coaches, Players, Parents, ect ect all know what happens at school. It's when it gets posted to social media that issues arise. And yes, Ive seen several MENS players at the NCAA's enjoying questionable beverages and post game celebrations. Should probably suspend Derrick Shaw and Bob Emery for allowing him to smoke a cigar in the locker room back in 2001. (TIC)

    Side note....as I explained to someone else. I agree with the punishment, as comical as it is. When you put someone against POLICY on social media, the NCAA has to act. But acting like this is the end of the world, that college kids are drinking is just laughable lol

    I know nothing about your daughter. But thank you, sir (and I use that term loosely) for staying the hell out of my town. I suspect from your bitterness that your daughter wasnít recruited to come to Plattsburgh. Your last name isnít Ball, is it?

    Lol, you're precious! "Chest Club" and "ect ect" are just too funny. You should go back to Platty, but try to graduate this time, PSUChump. If you do, I have no doubt you'll have a few beers to celebrate the accomplishment. Thanks for the laughs!
