    Re: Harvard Crimson (again) 2018-19

    Regarding Stone’s present team, my fan clock sees next year as the culmination of a three-year rebuild, which seems to be moving ahead. But the incoming recruits will be critical. New line additions will have to unleash Hughes, Gilmore, Jovanovich, Petrie, and KDR to make scoring a habit, not just a happenstance. And we need D! We have some young talent, but Ds seem to take forever to develop (why is that?), and we need a real blueliner, or two, from day one. It would be criminal to have a .500 team in front of Reed for the next three years. But Lethargy? Indifference? I haven’t seen it, and with Fusco and Laing on the ice it would have been hard to get away with. Fatigue, maybe, especially with the past few seasons’ involuntary short benches. And yes, there’s been more than enough poor play, but mostly from those whose trajectory has been downward, which happens, however Machiavellian the recruiting. But I’m going to give it a few more years before putting in a call to Josh McDaniels . . . er, I mean Maura Crowell. (Personally, I wouldn’t trust Lee-J in the Beanpot
    This is one of the best and most evenhanded recaps I've seen on this thread or any other thread in a long time. Not since Dave1382 patrolled the board a decade or so ago.

    What Trillium doesn't understand (and his bias against Harvard is so transparent, it's hilarious) is that Harvard doesn't fire coaches unless there is an egregious display of behavior towards the student athletes or the program spirals into disarray with a mass exodus of players because of said treatment. Mark Mazzoleni did his level best to infuriate alumni, parents and former players with his attitude towards the Harvard community, yet it was his treatment of players that ultimately got him his walking papers (and even then, it was a parting of the ways that was spurred on by an offer from the Green Bay Gamblers).

    One of my issues with the Harvard program and coaching staff is that building depth is not considered crucial to success. Thus a group of 'star' players get the majority of ice time at the expense of others who languish on the bench. This wears the team down towards March and I believe is one reason we have trouble getting far in our own tournament, let alone the NCAAs.

    Former Crimson player Sami Reber is building an impressive resume as a coach at her high school alma mater. One would think she'd be a candidate for a (head?) coaching job at her college alma mater in the not-too-distant future.

    Et tu, D2D?

    Quite the story, despite “some bumps in the road” in the current 27-4-0 season! And those four sets of sisters on the roster!! That’s a remarkable gathering of hockey gene pools, even for Minnesota.

    Reber was a strong, gutsy but disciplined skater as I remember her, and tough to match up against when skating with Hillary Crowe. Given her repeated success coaching a doubtless talented corps at Edina, it would certainly be nice to think of her as being in the pipeline, however long that might be. (I wonder if anyone has ever gone from behind a high school bench to HC in the Bigs.) Exciting. Refreshing. In due course!

    Thanks for post.

    Reber was an assistant to Maura Crowell at UMD in 2015-16, so she does have NCAA coaching experience. Coaches like Steve Sertich and Jim Scanlan were coaching girls HS before they moved to women's D-I. Offhand, I don't remember a female coach doing the same thing, but I'm guessing it has happened at some point.

    I would guess that being a HS coach somewhere like Edina or Eden Prairie has some benefits over coaching at least a few of the lesser D-I jobs, not saying Harvard is one of those. The chance to combine coaching with teaching jobs can make for a better salary than the low end of D-I. Some of her teams at Edina might offer the chance to coach more talent than at a Union or Brown. It would come down to what age group a coach wants to work with and where she wants to live.

    Crimson fans, get yourselves over to the BC thread NOW! (And not just because T3 refers to Harvard as a powerhouse program )

    Ok, scouts, what have we got here? Can we make some noise this year? We’ve got to, since
    we’re going to Nashville, Nashville, Nashville, Tennessee, we’re going to Nashville . . .
    Have I a reason to believe we will well be received in Nashville?
