Cornell's Mike Schafer Calls Quinnipiac's Coach a Classless A**hole

After Cornell's 1-0 loss to Qunnipiac on Saturday, Cornell's head coach Mike Schafer let the fur fly in his post-game presser, calling Quinnipiac's coach Rand Pecknold a classless a**hole among other things. Listen to the high quality audio above, if you wish...

Schafer was upset that Pecknold argued with refs that Cornell's Cole Bardreau embellished the hit from behind into the boards by Quinnipiac's Matthew Peca to draw the penalty. Peca was awarded a five-minute major and a game misconduct for the play.

"We're not NHL hockey," says Schafer. "The kid gets hurt and goes down, you don't start yelling from the bench and looking for extra minutes or no minutes. You're concerned for the kid. If it was his kid that goes into the boards, I'd be a little concerned. Maybe not anymore."
