A couple of things. Sure, it looks bad, cameras are on and fans are sort

of watching. But:

We don't know how much time these guys spent being cordial prior to the game, or during recruiting season for that matter. It could be Crean and Bennett are plenty cool with one another whatever the handshake looks like after Tony wins another rock fight. (I'll give you Ferret does this same thing, but I have no reason to believe he and Tony are otherwise "cool." K's ego probably precludes that. K does have to say nice things about Tony from time to time, but it's about as genuine as his hair color).

Crean is under immense, soul crushing pressure to give his program a pulse. He's probably not employable at any level that he would accept after this season if he doesn't make a decent showing this year. His career is tanking and he and everyone else knows it. UVA is a meaningful scalp, and they were 5 minutes or fewer away.

These guys are Type-A competitors. Losing sucks. At least he didn't throw a tantrum or berate stadium staff.

All that said, thank goodness we have a coach with class and will never see that out of our guy.
