Corey Koskie's podcast - check it out -- really interesting --
It's one thing to routinely act that way, that's a problem. But when a horrible call (opinion as neutral observer) helps pave the way for your season to end I can understand acting that way.
According to the 2019-20 NCAA Ice Hockey Rule book it's a bench minor for a coach or other non-playing person connected with a team to use foul or abusive language; obscene gestures; threatening language or gestures; or other unsportsmanlike conduct to an official, or otherwise try to influence or intimidate an official either before or during a game.
It was a horrible call to me and many others but you can obviously disagree. Haven't seen anyone else on here, Twitter defend the call but that's obviously your right.

Dear God...these Gopher fans put up with you all year? I have no doubt Jeff Jackson thought it was a good call!
As far as the skate, the problem there is all I get to see is these short video clips, and they are deceiving, cause I can't see what leads up to them. and, of course, the highlights from the Big Ten completely skip any mention, or video of it. I hate my cable company too much to uncut my cable.
Bob's actions are not very professional but what else is he supposed to do? Sit there with a forlorn look on his face like the Don did for years? He rarely showed any emotion for the last few years of his tenure as head coach there and basically let Guentzel do all the yapping.
It's a bad call because the refs don't call that same infraction the 10+ times a game it happens and if you're going to call it that closely you need to be calling all of them for consistency purposes. If they'd been calling that consistently all game then sure, call it in OT. You'd still have people who are angry obviously because of biases but at least the call would be justifiable. When you just pick and choose when to call it and it just happens to go to the home team in OT that's just garbage reffing.
Someone wrote a good research piece a while ago about NHL reffing and how inconsistent it is as well as when calls are more likely to be made: https://hockey-graphs.com/2018/05/28...te-in-the-nhl/
edit: that's a different article than the one I was thinking of and I'll try and find it. But they concluded that 1 out of every 6 penalties were actually called in games.
