    Early Games and Rules Changes

    Nebraska played its first exhibition yesterday (10-27), not surprisingly crushing overmatched DII Pittsburg State. As games get underway the stories about the rules changes are circulating again. NU game had 21 and 23 team fouls and shot 48 and 24 % - too much talent disparity to judge any possible effect of the "freedom of movement" rules which I have to think will favor traditional Fennelly team play.

    Re: Early Games and Rules Changes

    Interesting they finally decided to do this:

    "The NCAA also adopted a few new rules for this season to try and help the pace of the game, including adding a 10-second backcourt rule to the women's game. The rule requires the offensive team to move the ball past midcourt within 10 seconds. Failure to do so results in a turnover. Under current rules, teams can take as much time off the 30-second shot clock as they want before crossing midcourt."

    Absolutely about time! As has been discussed on this forum numerous times.

    The big challenge will be for the officials to apply these concepts and be consistent, especially in the environment of fans and coaches calling for them to "let 'em play."

    Re: Early Games and Rules Changes

    I wish I had faith that the refs can make this adjustment. The 10 second thing I figure they can pick up since we can all count to ten but the general change to call games tighter, not so much.

    Re: Early Games and Rules Changes

    I was able to find and watch much of the coaches video, and was impressed. They seem serious, and give numerous examples of correct - as wall as incorrect calls.

    I just put my name in (a fake would work as well), highlighted "Not Applicable", "none" for institution and "fan" for position.

    Re: Early Games and Rules Changes

    Assuming the refs make it a non-contact sport again, it should be easier to get across the line in ten seconds. Even so, I would test us early to see how we handle a press in the back court. That will be often if we don't handle it well.

    I have the gut feeling it will be like everything else on these "point of emphasis" rule changes. During the non-conference season they will be policed and enforced. Once the conference season starts, it will go back to just like the past and all the hand-checking, bumping, and hacking will be just as normal.

    Two or three years ago hand-checking was a point of emphasis - it lasted about 3 or 4 games and then it mysteriously wasn't called anymore.

    Unfortunately, I think Three4CY is correct on this rule change.

    Re: Early Games and Rules Changes

    It's about time, allowing a team to dribble in the backcourt for so long was stupid. The women's game had to change the way it was being called, it was way too rough, looking forward to watching basketball the way it was supposed to be played.

    Yup, would have to agree with that. I hope it's wrong, but it won't surprise me one bit to see otherwise. It would certainly play to our advantage if the point of emphasis is actually enforced. I'm sure our Big 12 refs will conveniently not get the memo...

    Re: Early Games and Rules Changes

    The greater fear is that they will call a bunch of fouls correctly, then try to make sure the fouls are even so calling a bunch of BS fouls on ISU, even though they work relentlessly on NOT FOULING!!!

    Re: Early Games and Rules Changes

    I for one enjoyed not having a 10 second rule. It forced teams to play defense and it gave an option for the offensive teams to chew up clock if needed. Just was different from the men and there is nothing wrong with it.

    I've long been very vocal about how thuggery changed the women's game for the worse. I'll be glad if officials can make the adjustments. THEN it will be up to teams like ATM and Baylor to learn how to play real defense.

    If they enforce these rules the Baylor women's team will all be fouled out at halftime for most of the season...
