Pepperdine vs. CSUN

Anybody watch this match? Pretty tough night for the crew. I've worked exactly one D1 match and I've never used CRS. So I'm asking a genuine question and not trying to throw anyone under the bus.

What are the "guidelines" (for lack of a better word) on talking to the coach who has lost a challenge? It seems to me there's not much to say. Either "Coach, this is what I saw" or "Coach, I didn't see anything conclusive". Either way, the challenge is over and we're going to play.

It seemed to me that there was a LOT more conversation between the R2 and the coaches after 2 or 3 of the challenges. Is the accepted practice to engage the coach and let him/her get out some frustration? Or is it preferred to signal the decision and quickly move on?

If you do engage the coach, what are you telling him/her?

Answer: "It depends."

I normally don't even talk to the coach after unless I'm asked a specific question, and I normally answer quickly and we move on. I'm willing to take time to listen to any potentially protestable issue.

I didn't see the match, and I don't want to imply the refs did anything wrong, not knowing what was discussed and why, but usually we review and that's that.
