That's why I would get together with him/her, just in case. I don't want to just say I had an IP, and then let him figure things out from there.
Let us not forget the NCAA possibility of multiple options on a play; a defensive first option may negate the apparent result of the play, and reinstate the offensive option to accept the illegal pitch and erase the offense's choice.
