Massachusetts. Five 60-second timeouts for high school.

May sound like a lot, but in my experience at other levels that have them, 30-second timeouts are bogus and all end up being pretty close to "full" anyway.

Why? He wants us to be "professional", and "consistent".

He's been on this for several years, well before the 2018-19 Officiating Professionalism And Use Of Proper Terminology NFHS Point of Emphasis.

I think that he got a message from the International IAABO Grand Poobah after our guys were observed in state tournament games.

It's a small thing to ask, so I'm trying, with a lot of success.

He also wants our guys to stop signaling the sixty as a double foul, with fists rather than open hands. No problem for me, I've always done it the correct way.
I'm in no position of authority, but that is one of my biggest pet peeves.

"Sixty" versus "Full" is splitting hairs IMO.

Only if you let them.

Only if officials aren't doing their jobs.

It isn't. In men's college games without media, a long timeout (a full timeout) is 75 seconds, unlike HS or NCAAW, where a full timeout is always 60 seconds, media or no media. NBA full timeouts that are not mandatory timeouts are also 75 seconds, and mandatory timeouts are either 2:45 for games on local television or 3:15 for games on national television. For coaches who played in college before coaching high school, it is important to show and tell about the correct high school rules, thus "60 second" timeouts. I even had a freshman and JV girls coach not know she had to sit after she received a technical foul. I told her that in high school rules, a coach who receives a technical foul automatically loses the coaching box. This is the explaining I sometimes have to do about high school rules.
