My college assignor.... [/B][/QUOTE]It may be acceptable to your college assignor but that's got nuthin' to do with the statements above. If your college assignor tells you to use non-NCAA approved mechanics, so be it. If he tells you to stand on your head while making the signal, so be it. You'd best listen to him. That still doesn't change the fact that the proper NCAA block signal, as shown in their rulebook, is not the signal/mechanic your assignor is telling you to use.

There is no difference in block mechanics between NCAA and NFHS rules if an official is using the proper and right mechanic for each ruleset, as shown in their respective books. They are completely identical. That was Chuck's point.
