First off, I'll assume you mean shift and not motion.

And in Wisconsin we DO start from the 25. States are free to use the NFHS recommended procedure or create their own. We use the NCAA tiebreaker rules.

1 second is probably an exaggeration in reality. :)

I just wanted him to be watching. He wasn't, not all the time.

I don't want the crew mirroring my wind, though.

To me it's a sign of a good crew when I hear one whistle end a play the vast majority of the time.
