Who cares...

Heat suck, they'll be lucky to go 42-40, make the playoffs and lose 4-0 to the Celtics in the first round...

GO GATORS!!! Soon to be champs next week baby....

I couldn't understand the timeout either. With 30 seconds to go the Bulls were going to just run the clock out so we should have as well. Don't think it was done maliciously but I can certainly understand the Bulls' frustration.

Split Champs. After SC beats Penn St. by 30. Don't feel bad. They'd only beat UF by 21. So there, UF is better than Penn St by 9 points.

UF doesn't have the speed to play with SC. SEC was a slow conference this year. SC would shove the spread up Urban's a**.

Whatever you say, Captain....

Urban Meyer is the epitome of college football coaching excellence, much in the same way Tim Tebow has completely revolutionized the QB position.

Face it, the Gators are not only the premier academic institution in the U.S., but we're also becoming untouchable in athletics.

Gator Nation baby...2009 NATIONAL CHAMPS!!!

i watched the game and wondered why the timeout also. but i figured with Wade still in the game they wanted him benched.

but according to this article they didn't bench wade, even though it seemed like they did?

pretty desperate to make a big deal out of this though

Yeah Great. Maybe if I wanted to study entomology I'd go to UF. Too bad common sense isn't something most UF grads I know could ever master.

Tebow has revolutionized the QB position much the same way Tony Rice and Turner Gill have done many years ago. They were quick, Tebow is just big. Let's talk about Gill and Rice's Hall of Fame pro careers.......Oh that's right they never had one.

Tebow's pro career will be just the same. Look on the bright side though. Maybe he'll get a job coaching Apopka Community College. That way you can still cheer for him the same way you do Wuerfal, Leak and Grossman (What a Stud he turned out to be).

Tebow is a freak show. He's not an NFL caliber QB. No matter how much he can beat up Mississippi St and Vandy, he won't amount to much above the college level, unless they make him TE.

it isn't the heat's fault, or the coach's fault. outlaw basketball, then there will be no bullpoop timeouts. no anger. basketball is the reason this happened. just like cars are the reason people die in car accidents.

I would rather see the starters on the bench at that point, instead on the court where any injury could happen. If the Heat wanted to infuriate the Bulls, it would of been done by scoring another basketball in attempt to run up the score some more.
