Something odd about the Harvard game against Merrimack the other day - Patrick McNally didn't play... that seems odd for a top 4 defenceman.
I tried to figure out what had happened (injury?), but there wasn't any news or press release that I could find - but it's weird that he is no longer on their roster:Harvard Roster
Now I'm wondering if McNally is involved in the big cheating scandal from the spring Gov 1310 course at Harvard:NY Times Article
"Harvard’s rules provide a range of potential punishments for cheating, the most severe being forced withdrawal for a year, but for varsity athletes, there is an added risk. An athlete has a maximum of four years of eligibility to play for the school, and one who took part in even a single game, and then was suspended for the year, would have used up one of those years. But withdrawing before playing could preserve that eligibility for a future year.
At least a few of the students under investigation have withdrawn, or plan to do so, according to a Harvard official and an athlete who has conferred with some of the departing students. The student said that some of those who are leaving are athletes.
Both people were granted anonymity to discuss a topic that the university considers confidential."
I don't know if McNally's absence the other night has anything to do with this cheating scandal - I guess we'll see.
Harvard's next game is on Monday night against Mass-Lowell.
