Coaches' timeouts are worse. Basketball teams should get one, full stop.
People have made the very reasonable argument that in a multi-billion dollar industry (sports) that depends to a certain degree on "judgment calls" that there HAS to be a less than insignificant level of "cheating" by officials.
We see cheating in every other aspect, but we refuse sometimes to acknowledge its possibility by officials. Even after a ref or two comes out to and comments that it happens. I think that we convince ourselves to believe it is not true because we love to watch the games. If we were to discuss and even possibly accept that the playing field may not be equal it would fundamentally undermine something EVERYONE on here loves (sports). We won't allow ourselves to believe it is possible.
With that said, it is also very difficult to prove. This video (from Reddit, yes) is pretty interesting:
What do you think?
Yahoo had the genius idea to feature a slideshow of angry coaches from the tourney.
Bruce Weber and his (soon to be photoshopped) toilet.
Sean Miller and his (soon to be photoshopped) wizard ball.
Political radio host, Jim Boeheim.
And Brad Stevens completely losing his religion.

I have been thinking about this, if Burke leaves after this year.. Does he still get his jersey retired? I mean Wooden Award winner the only player at Michian to do so. Big Ten player of the year. 1st team All-American. I know people will say you need to stay atleast 3 years. I think he's earned it after this season no matter what happens in Hotlanta.Whats everyone else think?
After seeing some of the other Final Four wallpapers posted over the last few days, I figured I'd throw my hat in the ring, because you can never have too many cool wallpapers. No, there's no throwback 70s-style afros this time around, but a simple Atlanta-themed one will do.
Here's the link to download the "throwback" wallpaper from earlier in the year and the new Final Four one. You can also click on the images below for each iteration...
