CBS really needs to fix this or the NCAA needs to do something. The games are taking too long to finish because they have too many media timeouts and commercial breaks. It's hard t oget into the flow of the game with so many game breaks.

Four timeouts a half. 16:00, 12:00, 8:00 and 4:00.
Actually, it's similar to the pro game, where each team is forced to take a timeout a quarter. I'm not fully sure, but I think 9:00 and 3:00 for the road and home team, respectively.

The big difference, though, is that the team is charged one in the pro game, and not in the college game, so the teams don't lose any, meaning they have and use more. Plus, there are four more minutes per half in the pro game.

why do college coaches call timeouts down the stretch after their team has scored?
Wouldn't you want to save those for when you are on offense to advance the ball?
