We've Got A Handshake Controversy Between Jim Mora And Bill Snyder

Jim Mora, Bill Snyder handshake controversy after bowl game.

Update: Mora was apparently upset about a Kansas State player jumping over the pile on the game's final snap. Here's the play:

But Mora eventually returned for a second handshake, and appeared to explain to Snyder why he was upset.

Earlier: UCLA knocked off Kansas State in the Valero Alamo Bowl Friday night, but it's actually what happened after the game that seems to have people up in arms. Immediately following the contest's conclusion, Bruins head coach Jim Mora, whose team nearly blew a 25-point lead in the second half, appeared to somewhat snub Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder at the post-game handshake. 

Snyder, for those unaware, is one of the most respected men in the game.

Now, Mora has taken to Twitter to talk about protecting his players' safety. And a few of his players are tweeting about it too.

There's no doubt that details on whatever altercation that occurred will come out soon. We'll keep you updated.
