Unusual Sub situation

Held ball is called and the arrow points to team A. Coach for team B subs in B6 and B7 for B4 and B5. After the subs have entered the game, but before the ball is made live, the officials recognize that the arrow is incorrrect and possession should go to team B.

Coach for team B requests that he be allowed to return B4 and B5 to the lineup because he made the substitution for "defensive" purposes and would not have made the change if he knew it was going to be his team's ball.

It seems like the fair thing to do, but is it allowed under the rules?

By rule, no. In the real world, maybe.

If this was high school ball, no way are we allowing the change.

I imagine the conversation would go like this:

ME: Sorry coach, you can't change your mind on substitutions once they are beckoned on.

COACH: waaaaa waaaaa waaaaa

ME: That is why you have assistant coaches. To keep track of things like the arrow. If thee was a problem, we should've been notified of it before YOU CHOSE to sub.

ASSCOACH: waaaaa waaaaA waaaaa waaaaaaa waaaaaaa waaaa waaaaAa

ME: WHACK!

So, you, your partner(s) and the table are all wrong about the posession arrow (because you are a bit confused or not quite paying attention), then you're going to get sarcastic with the coach, egg him on, and basically tell him - he and his assistants should pay more attention? And while I know Asst Coaches shouldn't waa or be heard, you're going to WHACK him?

Not a big fan of this methodology.

Please re-read the post and pretend that Padgett posted it. Perhaps then you will see the humor.
