Savoir-Faire at Watson Rink

[Editor's note--For reasons which he claims "go way back," Harvard hockey coach Bill Cleary refuses to talk to The Crimson.]

The following exclusive interview of Crimson hockey mentor Bill Cleary was conducted immediately following last night's Harvard-B.U. contest. Any reproduction without the express written consent of The Harvard Crimson is strictly prohibited.

Crimson: So what's the story, coach. Do the Terriers have some sort of jinx on you?

Cleary:

Crimson: No kidding. What did you tell your team between the second and third periods that seemed to fire them up?

Cleary:

Crimson: Wow. What happened on B.U.'s winning goal?

Cleary:

Crimson: So that's what it was. After you had tied the score late in the third period and had seemingly gathered all the momentum, did you think you might win the game in regulation as you did last week against Northeastern?

Cleary:

Crimson: Yeah, right. Now that the team has played five games, what areas do you see as needing the most improvement?

Cleary:

Crimson: Is that so. How would you compare this year's B.U. team to the powerhouse Terrier squads of the last few seasons?

Cleary:

Crimson: That's true. How concerned were you when the Terriers jumped out to a 2-0 advantage?

Cleary:

Crimson: Oh really. What about that penalty to John Cochrane late in the third period. Was the referee justified in his call?

Cleary:

Crimson: Definitely. Will the Terriers, despite a 1-5 record at this point, eventually have to be reckoned with before the season is over?

Cleary:

Crimson: Well said. And what about the Crimson? What can we expect of Harvard this winter?

Cleary:

Crimson: That much. Who are the other teams that you expect to cause trouble in the ECAC?

Cleary:

Crimson: That many. How much difference does Petro really make to your hockey team?

Cleary:

Crimson: Seriously. One last thing, coach. Do you have the time?

Cleary:

Crimson: That's OK, but thanks anyway. Not giving one the time of day is no big deal.
