If I've noticed a team is normally slow to break up, I'll try to position myself near the head coach so that if the buzzer sounds to end the time out, I'm blowing my whistle again, and this time, the coach's ear is probably gonna ring for a couple seconds afterward.
I like this!

Dead time in this situation is simply not good for anyone.
And pray to your deity of choice that the timer knows how to put 20 seconds on the clock. I had one timer once that gave me the deer in headlights and then set the game clock to 20 seconds. That was fun to sort out.

I count the five in my head. Then I say "HORN, NOW."

For some reason that whole "five seconds" thing confuses timers.

That's not a bad approach.

I thought you were about to complain about the improper use of "should of" instead of "should have"...

But you didn't. You were addressing the handling of the clock for the DQ'd player.

And that is exactly how it should be done.
