    Annoucers - "I wish they would adopt the NBA rule...."

    Near the end of regulation when UT passed to half court and then took a quick timeout, one of the announcers said (loosely quoted) "I wish the NCAA would adopt the NBA rule of getting the ball at half court after a timeout." The other announcer immediately agreed, then the first guy said "I just think it adds more drama to the game."

    Well no **** it adds more drama to the game. So would making a 3 pointer worth 5 points with less than a minute, or giving the losing team possession of the ball at midfield if the clock is under two minutes in football. But those suggestions are stupid, just like giving a hoops team the ball at half court for no reason at all.

    Just venting. I apologize if I anger any of you NBA fans. Had to complain about something other than the game.

    I'd be ****** if the NCAA took up that rule. I absolutely hate the rule, tough **** if you have to take the ball out from under the opposite basket with only 2 seconds left.

    It's an idiotic rule. Shouldn't get the ball at half court without doing anything. Gotta advance it.

    Not that we made it difficult for Texas to do tonight. Unbelievable.

    I don't understand any rule that only applies during certain times of the game.

    Well, I'm not sure it would have mattered tonight. We basically let Texas walk freely up the court in regulation to then call time out and then we were gifted with a second chance opportunity out-of-bounds in the second OT.
