On Thursday, Eduardo started doing a reverse omoplata on a brown belt in sparring and turned to me and said "This one's for you."

I do Reverse Omoplata's in Aesos honor.And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.

We drilled the Reverse Omoplata tonight for the first time in probably a year.
I'd forgotten how easy it is to do.

This last friday we were working omoplata variations (why, I still don't know) and my instructor comments to me (everyone else was a white belt) "you can also do it like this".
Reverse omaplata off the turtle.
I giggled a little.

I tried out de Lima's method of rolling into/finishing the Reverse Omoplata as per your post in my training log in class today and found it more than satisfactory. Hugging the leg makes it MUCH more controlled. Thanks.
I also was taught a variation of the finish by actually rolling horizontally (as opposed to vertically in the setup you use) to their OTHER side to put the opponent's back on the mat. I didn't experiment with it today, but will do so tomorrow and report back with my opinion on that method.

I found hugging the leg only forced the guy to roll with me. Without it he stays in turtle and his arm comes off as I roll independently.
Also, for the finish someone suggested just sprawling into side control as opposed to doing the standup. I have yet to properly assess how well it breaks someone's ****.

You'll find you can roll in almost any direction and put them on their back, but I've found that it's best to go with the forward roll first and switch directions when they resist. For example, if they really resist your forward roll, you can switch back to the arm across the chest method by slapping your arm across their chest and sitting back. Or if they they try to pull away from you, you can roll sideways towards them and come over the top, putting them on their back. Or if they drive their weight into you, you can hug their leg and roll belly down away from them, pulling them over you and putting them on their back.
What do you mean by "sprawling into side control" to finish?
