    Referees: Hand Checking emphasis

    How much of a problem do you expect the new hand checking rules to have on college basketball this season? Already fouls are being called at an incredible pace.

    From this yahoo article, it seems we might be in for a foul plagued season.

    Y! SPORTS

    "Seton Hall's 83-72 victory over Niagara lasted about 2 1/2 hours and produced an astonishing 73 personal fouls and 102 free throw attempts, both more than any game last season in either regulation or overtime."

    Not going to make college basketball watchable if 73 fouls are going to be called.

    "Referees have called an average of 42.29 personal fouls per game this season through Sunday night, about seven more per game than last season. About 19.5 percent of games have featured 50 or more personal fouls and seven have produced 60 or more, numbers that suggest the new rules have been enforced with particular zeal a handful of times by certain crews."

    Until they adapt, things will be stop and go. Announcers will cry bloody murder over the slowness, like the ESPN ones have been doing in the WV-VaTech game.

    Then people will adapt, and it won't be a big deal.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Referees: Hand Checking emphasis

    Seems to be an easy answer: Quit hand-checking.

    In all seriousness, teams will learn what they can and can't do. There will be more fouls called in November and December, but I have a feeling once conference play rolls around, everyone will know what the rules are and foul totals will digress down to "normal" levels. Teams are going to play a lot more zone to compensate.

    Fred has got to be licking his chops a bit at the thought of teams playing more zone against us

    It looks like six guys fouled out in that game. SIX! And there were six more with 4 fouls. That's ridiculous

    I hope they all adjust, because the second half against Iowa two years ago was almost unwatchable due to the constant fouls.

    Seems like it will benefit offensive teams. I like our chances against a team like Kansas if they cant hand check

    I completely agree. I've been really turned off by the amount of hand checking in college basketball the last few years. Every time a guy would drive into the lane, the defender would "hand-check" him (more like an outright shove) to stop him from going into the paint. It was ridiculous the amount of force that players were allowed to use to stop drives. I'm hoping the flow of the game will return this year finally.

    See I am the opposite, my easy answer is let them hand check. I like some physicality in basketball.

    Ed is retiring after this year. Expect a banner year from the man.

    This. You will see two types of teams this year. Those that are going to continue business as usual in hopes that the refs don't have the stomach to keep calling all these fouls and those that choose to adapt immediately and emphasize playing d without the hands. Seems like CFH will be in the latter category.

    You seem to forget who you're dealing with. Hand check will not apply to blue-blood programs.

    If teams combine for 70 fouls in a game then both of those coaches need to take some practice time and dedicate it to teaching their players to move their feet. The rules are a great move for CBB, and the only teams that will truly struggle with them are teams that refuse to play straight up and continue to hack ballhandlers.


    Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never really care for anything else thereafter.
