When I was a cadet at Norwich, I would go to the games but didn't understand or appreciate the larger DIII hockey landscape. I had a better understanding of the Middlebury rivalry, but that was mostly due to old alums (read: Charlie Crosby) telling stories of getting into brawls at football games back in the day. I didn't know much about Plattsburgh other than the fact that they had awesome jerseys. It wasn't until after graduating that I really became a fan of the DIII game and understood the stature of McShane, Beaney, and Emery. By all accounts, all three of them were and are class acts. The story about the grace and heart Coach Emery showed Coach Gosek made me tear up a bit. Excellent coach, sounds like a better man.
