    New NCAA Rules are a Joke

    NCAA implemented a new "hand checking" rule on the perimeter that will be called more often. Hopefully they don't call it this close all season or games could get ridiculous. I watched these two games tonight and it was painful to watch

    Oklahoma State-Mississippi Valley State game: 61 fouls called, 79 free throws shot

    Kansas-Louisiana Monroe game: 58 fouls called, 72 free throws shot

    Re: New NCAA Rules are a Joke

    I hope they do call it this way all season. We aren't a physical team and it will help us more than it will hurt us. We aren't going to mug teams (see: West Virginia, Kansas State) and we aren't going to be outmuscled as easily going to the bucket. Someone like Niang on the perimeter should be able to get his guy in foul trouble away from the bucket quick. Big guys want to use their body to defend and Niang will be impossible to defend without them using their hands.

    The garbage they've called "defense" in recent years in college basketball has been a joke. Hand and hip check all you want isn't defense.

    Re: New NCAA Rules are a Joke

    The new rules will lead to some ugly games, especially early in the season. But, long term, they will assist ISU given the style of bball we play, and will ultimately reward true basketball skill. That is dribbling, passing, shooting, and defending with your legs and body position. I think this move will be widely appreciated over time.

    Re: New NCAA Rules are a Joke

    I knew this thread would eventually come along, but I didnt realize it would come the very first night of the season.

    And my prediction for this rule is almost everybody here will hate it towards the end of the year. Dont ask me why, but I think it will happen.

    Its not the rules that are a joke. Its that teams need to adapt to the new rules.

    This year will suck as teams adjust. But this will lead to a better game as time progresses. What was called defense the past 10 years isn't and wasn't defense.

    Re: New NCAA Rules are a Joke

    Didn't notice the fouls as much as I was expecting during the Georgetown-Oregon game. They were obviously there though based on the 74 foul shots. Will be annoying until teams accept that they can't mug each other to play defense. At least Hilton will be nice and rowdy when we get called for our 10th team foul against Michigan 10 minutes in.

    Re: New NCAA Rules are a Joke

    Yeah, during the exhibition game I kept going "really?" when those quick whistles for touching were called. I can't imagine how hard it will be for the players and coaches to get used to it. If it helps the game, then so be it. But for now, I agree with Eustachy in the fact that I don't want to see all the stars sitting on the bench in foul trouble in the first 10 minutes. Everyone says they'll all adjust. But, I can't really decide whether the new rules will help or hinder our particular team. We better have some good zone defense ready!

    Re: New NCAA Rules are a Joke

    It's not the rules that are a joke, it's the officiating over the last 15 years that has been a joke.

    The rule change is needed to correct the ridiculous officiating drift that has occurred.

    Re: New NCAA Rules are a Joke

    Frankly, anyone who complains about the new rules can no longer complain about how "boring" and "impossible to watch" Wisconsin is.

    Or West Virginia, K-State, Michigan State.

    Re: New NCAA Rules are a Joke

    This rule was implemented in the NBA years ago...it was only a matter of time. The refs are told to call it tight for the first weeks of the season to get teams acclimated. They will back off slightly once conf season hits. Honestly, its the way the game should be played imo.

    Re: New NCAA Rules are a Joke

    I personally feel the game should be physical, it's important that it not be too physical.

    It would go a long way towards achieving a game like that if some of the basic rules were enforced.

    "Drop step", "crossover", "three step lay-ups", are all garbage of rather recent vintage when people got the idea it made for an exciting game.

    That's why, when good rosters go up against one another, you often get a bloodbath.

    Find good officials, call the basics, and you'll get the game you'd like to see.

    My thoughts exactly. And from what I understand, these are not "new" rules either. They've always been in place, but never enforced.

    When I played high school basketball we always did the "towel drill", where the guys on defense had to play while holding a towel behind their back with both hands. That completely took away the use of your hands on defense. It forced you to play defense with your feet. You had to move your feet big time and beat your guy to the spot to cut him off.

    Obviously your hands are important on defense, for picking off passes, rebounding, blocking shots, etc, but our coach used this drill to keep us from playing lazy defense where we were always getting beat off the dribble and reaching with our hands to make up for it. It worked.

    I think it will be good for the game. Keep your hands off the offensive player. Play defense with your feet.

    I disagree. 2 months from now, maybe later, 90% will be in love with the new rules.
