Airborne player calling timeout rule change
"The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel has approved a proposal from the basketball rules committee that will not allow an airborne player falling out of bounds — or into the backcourt — to be granted a timeout. This proposal, to take effect during the 2006-07 season, should please plenty of fans who didn’t like seeing desperation timeouts called, as well as coaches, who have had precious timeouts burned by confused players."

“Players usually call it at the most inopportune time — in the first half or when the shot clock is running down,” said Kansas University coach Bill Self, a member of the National Association of Basketball Coaches board of directors. “It depends on the situation,” he added. “In the first half, it’s not a good play. In the second half, if you need the possession, it’s not as bad. I don’t get worked up about it either way.” Lawrence Journal-World
