    When I reffed basketball (poorly I might add) I used to have multiple short burst whistles. I got that from football. Its a habit that is hard to break

    Excellent point, and given that many officials (especially in HS) officiate multiple sports, this might explain why the change over the years. I only officiated BB & BA, thus not having the transfer "interference" on the whistle. I might add that as the level of PHYSICAL PLAY has increased, many officials will use the "multi-tweet" as a tool of "player separation" to dissolve the heat. There were times where I might blow the whistle harder to achieve the same end, but I never "multi-tweeted." Bill Malloy, former ISU Track Coach & NCAA Official (who taught my ISU "Officiating Class" in '70) would've shit a brick! Terre Haute had three (3) quality NCAA Basketball Officials during my era: Malloy, Chuck Miles (Trent's Dad) and Charlie Fouty.

    I dont know if they had those classes in the 90s, I wish I would have started right after I got done playing. An ISU student/now alum I knew back then worked the national championship game monday night. he said he reffed HS FB and wanted to get into big time FB. I was like "is that a thing?" There is a buttload of politicking though. The Charleston IL area had a bunch of D1 officials and an NFL guy. I think it has to do with one guy moving up then a bunch of guys having an "IN".

    I'd take it one step further. This is Distinguished Alumni Award territory--especially given the occasional stretch ISU has had to make some years on who they call "distinguished." Officiating the National Championship game is far more impressive than some of the pedestrian recipients I've seen over the years.
