    I don't know the stats to back up whether time outs help or not, but I think it's worthwhile to call a T/O to stop the momentum when a team is shooting lights out.

    Completely dumbace argument to say not using timeouts while the opposition is gaining momentum is better than calling them. Of course it doez not work everytime, but to say it is the same as just not using them makes you look like a fool and gives us a glimpse at your lack of basketball knowledge.

    I just caught this. Hilarious! No one puts Big Bird in his place like you, RDI.

    Several teams have games to win. I would give Miami and Duke as the teams to beat. Miami looks like a Final 4. I would hope this for Duke vs Miami. UNC and UVA look pretty close to be in the middle.

    My education and coaching is called experience, and paying the the dues to become a productive member of our society. Your prize is going to work on time, and trying to obtain a status in your own field of work whatever you do in life. I can't coach you, and all of those others that have this problem with self esteen. Some sit on thier assssss, and never rise above; anthing.

    You started on me big bird, I just "fire back" to make a fool outta you.

    Yes, we`ve all heard how you own the world, No one is on the cloud you are,
    No one here is worthy of your presence, yadda yadda yadda.... Let me know when that
    Nobel peace prize arrives.

    Timeouts often are successful in interrupting momentum. Sometimes they're not.

    The point being that they're all you've got.

    Even if there was only a 10% chance they'd make a difference, you still should try it. That's better than a 0% chance if not used at all.

    I would bet that skillful use of timeouts would facilitate winning 100% more than not using them.

    Heh. I was trying to bow out gracifully. Let it go when I state this. Don't come back with your simple mess. I stated the facts from the many box scores. You can't get in front of me with playing, coaching, and leading high school teams when I was coaching. I know darn well you haven't been where I have been. I have read you for a long time on here. Fire on back now RDI. It's still early.

    You always come around when I write anything about UNC. Heck. I read all of the fans on here. Long live the greatest coach in the ACC. Dean Smith. Hey. RDI. You need to lossen up on me on here. I don't quote you on here, and I know where you are coming from. Let it go.

    No need to state the obvious Sir, I merely solidified my point. No harm, No foul.

    Well. Duke was blown out against Miami. Coach K called time outs when they started to run away from them. He called his usage in time outs in the 1st half. He used all of them in the 2nd half too. Use them or lose them. Miami is a Final Four. I see Duke and Miami in the ACC Finals. How's that?

    What ever you say oh great one, Tell me sir, how did duke do with coach K calling his timeouts?, didnt slow miami`s freight train down one single bit.

  • VT1994Hokie Feb 9, 2013

    Heh. I have read all on this one thus far. Smart coaches will call a time out when the opposing team is making a huge rally in scoring 14+ points like Miami did today. The crowd is loud and the team is totally charged up. Call a time out. Settle the troops. Some of you guys mean well in what you write. No experience in playing nor coaching.

    I dont harp on Roy`s use of timeouts because it`s been more than proven they do not
    stop a teams hot shooting, or your teams lack of shooting.

  • TVs_Deceit Feb 9, 2013

    I think someone's computer needs a breathalyzer lockout device.

    But no, Roy's not out of timeouts,
    but why call them when they'll just prolong the game?

    Why would he want to suffer through beatdowns any longer than he has too?

    What would he say during a timeout?

    "Don't suck so bad!!"?
    "Try playing better than my 90 year old Grandmother!!"?
    "You DO know that you're allowed to score.. right?"?

    I suppose he could give a eulogy for the team..
    but that's usually best saved for private in the locker room.

    Once again, the OP is not very smart! This should have been posted on the UNC Forum. State fans do not care about this, or so they say!
