NEW HAVEN, Conn., Oct. 3--Yale's Jordan Olivar was an angry football coach today. His targets were the officials who worked in the Dartmouth-Yale game here Saturday.
Without mentioning names, Olivar claimed that two "irresponsible decisions" by the officials proved costly to the Elis, who lost 12-8.
"It's not sour grapes," he said. The defeat ruined Yale's perfect record of being unbeaten, untied, and unscored on in five games.
"The wrong calls--mistakes, of course,, were terrible," complained the Yale coach, who usually keeps his burns and bruises to himself. "The sanctity football officials are housed in is wrong," Olivar told sports writers. "If I make a mistake, I'm blasted. If the kids make any, they're blasted, but officials apparently mustn't be blasted."
