I work some college games and I am always criticized about my mechanincs when I work a high school game (especially NCAA block calls) by fellow officials.
Could you tell me the difference in mechanics for a blocking foul between FED and NCAA?
Fists chopping waist vs hands "hugging" hips.
Whereintheheck did you get that idea?

The block signal on the NCAA chart- #20- is exactly the same as the block signal- #31- on the NFHS chart. They are completely identical.
It is acceptable to chop the waist in college not in my high school association.
Who says that "chopping" symbol is acceptable in college?

Chuck's point was that there is no difference in the approved mechanic between the NCAA and NFHS rulesets. Chuck is completely right. The blocking signals in both rulebooks are exactly the same. The NCAA block symbol, as shown in their rule book, is not "fists chopping the waist".
