    Yup, Pemsl was to blame for the first one and Shayok and Jacobson for the one at the end of the game.

    Prohm was in the wrong in both of them.

    And Fran was wrong for refusing to shake hands. He was a bad sport.

    With how much Prohm lost his composure that game and his players following his lead, it was the right decision by Fran.

    You would hate to see a coach overreact in the hand shake line after getting beat. Iowa fans saw it this year after the Iowa/Illinois game and it was a bad look for the Illini staff.

    I agree that the Illini assistants were out of line, but why can't Fran take the high road every once in awhile? I'll help you with the answer: He can't

    Not the biggest Fran fan personally, but I have no problem pulling guys from a handshake line after a chippy ending while opposing coaches continue to shout at your players. What is the upside for staying? Not much IMO. Downside? Maybe KU vs KSU and a couple indefinite suspensions for a beat up roster.

    What players were getting shouted at and by what coaches?

    Props to Fran I guess for knowing his childish demeanor and personality are contagious and his players reflect his poor character and would thus be prone to physical violence if exposed to an ominous sportmanship line

    Or....

    He knows that weird stuff can happen. Unless you think David Montgomery throwing a punch in the Baylor game is a reflection of the ISU head football coaches "poor character and childish demeanor".

    That wasn't the same situation, and football is much more violent sport by nature.
