    I ran across a link to the new NCAA bball rule book last night and found a couple things that were interesting

    New rules:

    Court Finish. (Rule 1-17.6).
    The playing court must be completely finished in a manner that is similar throughout, including the 3-foot area outside each sideline and 6-foot area outside each end line. It is the responsibility of the host game management to ensure that the court is of a consistent finish, including any logos or decals that are legally allowed on the floor.

    My immediate thought was Oregon, is their court now a rules violation? Are they grandfathered in? Are they the reason for the new rule?

    Officials will no longer count out loud or use their hands to count back-court violations, all will be based off of the shot-clock.....Seems like a no-brainer, but probably something guards are going to have to be aware of.

    There are a bunch of new monitor review rules, it basically seems like anything under two minutes can be reviewed, they can now review to determine who a foul was on and who the ball went out on anytime during the game. There were a bunch of other new rules but nothing fundamentally different.


    There is a section outlined that has three points the NCAA is concerned with and they are giving refs training on and to specifically watch and call tighter this year:

    They are:

    Handchecking - going to be called tighter this year

    Freedom of movement - can't impede cutters

    Blocks/charges - this was mentioned several times. When an offensive player leaves the ground a defensive player can't come in under them to try to get a charging call. The position and placement of the defender is determined when the offensive player leaves the ground, not where they end up. Expect to see a lot more blocking calls this year


    It seems like the NCAA is really trying to free up the flow of the game and increase scoring. As for CU, this all appears great, they aren't an overly physical team on defense, the focus this year will definitely hurt teams that impede cutters, are physical with the guards and bang in the post.

    I love the handchecking, freedom of movement and block/charge stuff. We had a good thread about that last season. Good to know the NCAA rules committee reads Allbuffs. :thumbsup:

    If Heslip tries his baseline dash against us, Gordon needs to hip check his ass into the fifth row. Take the foul.

    Are the refs still going to use a 8 inch black and white TV for instant replay?

    Yes, but the exciting news is that they'll limit replay feeds to a single on-court handheld camera operated by a six-year-old. They want to get it just right.

    is it the same six year old, or do they get a new one each week?

    Need to crack down on screens/picks. The grey area on these gets bigger every year.

    Hopefully the emphasis of the Pac 12 officials is to limit the mugging that Arizona State does this year on defense

    Does asu still have bzynchski (sp?)? Hopefully rules emphasis will slow down any potential thuggery. And I'm thinking the rules emphasis may help Dinwiddie move through the lane and make more action!

    A black and white tv is way better than an all white tv. Well, if you plan on throwing stuff at it, I mean.

    Haha. Larry was a believer in the philosophy that if all 5 of your guys are grabbing, pushing, and checking at the same time then refs will ignore those calls and swallow the whistle until they see something egregious.

    I don't think this hurts Tad's defense so much. It was always about switching and staying in front of guys. Buffs don't foul much and don't gamble much.

    Romar is not a fan either.....


    “Well, thank goodness we’ve been able to have officials come in because it was a shock to our team,” Romar said. “Shockwaves went through all the practice, like ‘Wow, we can’t do anything.’ If I look at them too long, is that a foul, too?”


    i do like this quote however - it pretty much sums up my feelings

    UW freshman guard Nigel Williams-Goss, a McDonald’s All-America pick likely to start, said the new rules emphasize revisiting the basic principles followed by most good defenders.


    “Sliding your feet, keeping your hands out and beating the guy to the spot using your feet — (that’s) how defense is supposed to be played anyways,” he said.

    Even that angle showed Chen's shot was good

    Nropp has a good blog post on the rule changes today.

    He's got a section that CU fits into well: CU got to the line on 40% of their field goals attempted and opponents only got to the line on vs 25% for theirs. IE - we get to the line a lot and don't send the other teams to the line hardly at all.

    Villanova and Jay Wright are licking their chops. All they did a season ago was get to the foul stripe on 50% of their possessions. They beat teams at the foul-line; this will be nothing new to them. The same can be said for Harvard and New Mexico State. You haven’t heard a peep out of John Beilein and the Michigan Wolverines in regards to the new rule. Why? Because their offense is deadly from the perimeter, and their defense is too - he’s incorporated a “no-foul” defense from the first day he stepped on campus. They sag, and they force you into mistakes and bad shot-attempts. Nothing changes with Michigan - not a single thing.

    I like nropp and he's a hell of an analyst. Sometimes too smart for his own good, but always knows what he is talking about.
