The mechanics are the same but many use an un-approved mechanic. As it is in the book, the block and over-and-back signals are my least favorite to use. I just think they are both weak signals. I'm guilty of using the bad mechanic at the spot, but when I report to the table I use the proper block mechanic. This is one of my weaknesses because it is wrong, like others have said.

Roundball, many things aren't done correctly in a college game on TV. That doesn't mean we aren't supposed to do it right. They walk and talk, in men's games, all the time and that isn't correct (I don't know about the ...SEC).
