I don't think it is an NCAA thing, or even an elitist thing. Call it how you wish, so long as the players recognize what you are calling.

This reminds me of an advanced school given by (among others) Henry Pollard, former Deputy Director for ASA, still Deputy Director for ISF. Henry is famous for calling "oots" (rhymes with chutes), and some of us were teasing Henry about that call. His response was "When I call them oot, they walk off the field. That's all I am looking for them to do; they are oot."
