Reality Bites by Tim Shea - Apr 10, 2013

Concerned, curious and (a little bit) confused...

Question:
Can someone tell me how many time-outs are allowed during a NCAA Final Four game? I lost count. Talk about interruptions! Can you say the word Endless? Between the two tense teams and TV timeouts with a MESSAGE FROM OUR SPONSORS. The actual presentation comes across like a hot summer afternoon, second of a double header, extra inning, baseball game. Flow and rhythm? What happened? It just aint normal.

Another Question: Do the NCAA rules allow teams, in danger of committing a back court time-limit violation, to call a time out? Can someone kindly tell me?

Good news. Unlike so many of the professional basketball players worldwide, the NCAA student-athletes do not protest and exhibit themselves after every single one of the refs decisions! Congratulations on that as it is refreshing. Not too long ago it was customary that the only player permitted to enter into dialogue with the referees was the Captain. What happened to that? Just asking.

Countless Columns of Comments
Dept: Syracuse University traditional and now famous half court two-three zone and its effectiveness and methodology. Two weapons of combat when faced with combating ANY zone, often overlooked for their simplicity, is fast breaking it and the effective use of offensive rebounding activity. These were the major tools and most of what University of Michigan utilized to defeat Syracuse and make it to the NCAA final game.

Re: Rutgers scandal. Questions and more questions. Like: How does a man like (Coach) Mike Rice get this to this rank? Put in a position of power to serve as an educator, a leader and theoretically, an architect of student-athletes, he was for all intents and purposes a verified madman while previously coaching Robert Morris University. Why would anyone in their right mind expect him to suddenly change? What he did at Rutgers was the exact opposite of what is expected of someone in his position and he did it for a relatively long time. He deserved to be fired right along with the people at Rutgers who hired him. From where I sit he never should have been hired in the first place. Bottom line? He needs a doctor; he needs psychological treatment far beyond anger management therapy. ** Coach Rice was finally fired last week not for cause (!), meaning that under his contract he is in line to be paid over $1 million, or 75% of his remaining salary, plus a $100,000 bonus for staying on the job through the 2012-13 season. What a world!

Wake-up Call Dept: Will the basketball players competing outside of the USA pro leagues ever get around to collectively organizing themselves to protect their professional rights? It seems that every other day we read or hear about a foreign player not being paid or playing/living under deplorable conditions. Therefore my question, how long and how many players contracts need to be dissed before some type of union or association is created to help protect them?

NBA: Unlike the NBA where luxury taxes and salary caps maintain a certain equilibrium and a semblance of equality between clubs, where winning streaks like Miami, Denver or New York are newsworthy... Here in our professional league in Spain it becomes big news when either the Barcelona or Real Madrid teams lose a game! More than one (in a row)? Fuhgedaboudit.

International: League officials MUST Begin Some Honest Discussion re: The standards or rules concerning player movement as it pertains to: Screen setting.
To be specific:
A) On the ball blocks in the Pick and Roll
B) The off-the-ball baseline blocks.
Historically a point of debate, the actual state of affairs has become undisciplined and downright dangerous to the game and to the players. Moving blocks destroy the intended fairness and harmony between offense and defense and generate a SITUATIONAL IMBALANCE between the two. It says here that the rules of the game MUST not be compromised, otherwise the game takes on some type of mutant form. Bottom line? Its gotten completely of control and something must be done to correct it. Punto & basta.
