AN IMMODEST PROPOSAL….Congratulations to UCLA for getting to the Final Four. But I have a suggestion for the gods of college basketball: reduce the number of timeouts allowed and don’t allow timeouts at all during the final two minutes of the game. The 20 lumbering minutes that it takes to finish the last few minutes of most games is nothing short of excruciating, but in games where both teams have used up their timeouts the final minutes are some of the most exciting in sports.
So: no timeouts in the final two minutes. Let ’em run. Who’s with me?
