Is it just me or do you agree?  Watch the end of women's college basketball games.  The coaches barely shake hands and move on toward the line of players for the ceremonial low fives and it's off to the locker room.  Don't any of these coaches have any relationships with each other at all?  It seems so different in the men's games.

     Watch the end of men's games.  In the Big Ten virtually every coach has an arm to the other guy's shoulder and they all stop and talk and wish each other well.  It's almost universal regardless of the match up.  They all seem to respect each other to the point of almost apologizing for the victory.  No such warmth on the women's side and you wonder if any of them even speak to each other.

     Even in college hockey, no matter how brutal the game, when the series ends the CCHA coaches almost always stop on the ice and visit with each other and shake hands with more personality and warmth.  You look for yourself and I defy you to even find an exception to that.  I don't know of one Big Ten women's coach who goes out of her or his way to stop and visit with the opposing coach regardless of a win or a loss.  You'd think they'd all have something in common given the brutal nature of trying to survive with wins but I only see that from one gender's games.  I'm not as critical over the women's game as I am mystified by it.
