Stupid question but say if you have the omoplata, and they roll forward to escape, if you roll forward with them, will it keep it back on?
I would, but i don't wanna end up snapping someones arm lol.
yeah it works but i perfer to just take the sweep and getting top
I'm pretty sure there is little chance of that best thing to do it get some one and try it out slowly and see if it works
Yep, you've got to roll very tight underneath yourself though, or you'll likely lose it. You don't snap anyone's arm trying it if they're already rolling.
Marcelo shows it on his 4th set if you're looking for the right way to do it.

its far easier for them to roll as they are on all 4's and you are on your back, it would be very hard for you to keep up with them unless you were very fast and practised, in which case why not spend the time practicing breaking down their posture and putting your arm across the back to prevent the roll instead.
You're not on your back unless you're crap at omoplatas...

You can get your hand on their back (or their belt, in the gi) sufficient to stop them completing it (i.e. keeping them balanced on their shoulders), but you can't drag them back down to all fours, that's a good time to re-roll if you don't feel like just accepting the sweep.
You can also do it even if they've already rolled out, like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lrj5hzYapIE

yes, but you have to get your own legs out of the way, and you MUST have tight control of their elbow
my bad, i assumed that one of the reasons his opponent was hitting the roll on him was because he was not sitting up quick enough.
