Quid Pro Quo

I again last night made it a POE with the two coaches I hadn't had in a while in our brief pre-game introduction: "And coach, when a timeout is granted you, please let us know clearly if you want a 30 or 60, that way you can spend more time with your players and we won't need to interrupt your huddle."
Every time I use this phraseology in pre-game, they respond with unmistakable clearness the entire game.
If I don't, they don't.

I ask twice... if no response, then I go full.

However, most of the time they tell me right away.

I don't ask anymore

HS game -- assume full they will tell you otherwise

College game -- assume 30 they will tell you otherwise

In our chapter we were told to ask at least twice on our way to the reporting area. Get to the area with no response? Default to full.

But "they" can still bite us.
About the time we signal a *full*, the table says, "He just wanted a 30."

Tough noogies. Tell the table the coach didn't tell you and that's what counts. It's good to be the king.
