    Thoughts on Dickie V's suggestion during last nights game

    Didn't see this posted anywhere so wanted to bring up the discussion (if I just missed it and there is a thread Mods please merge). What are the thoughts on what people think of the proposition of changing the allowed fouls in NCAA to 6 instead of 5. Dickie V gave his thoughts on it and I see it as a positive and a negative. Great because our best players get one extra foul and would help keeping our best guys on the floor longer... bad because of course it also helps keep the other teams best players on the floor with an extra foul to give. Thoughts?

    I think they should do this, switch to quarters, and play 44 minutes in college. It's so logical and just hurts my brain and just adds to my list of why the NCAA is full ****.


    Rhoads out!

    Bring the shot clock down first.

    Kansas already gets 6 fouls per player.

    Personally, I'm not in favor of it. You're allowing a potential of 10+ more fouls per game per team with that. But with the way they are calling hand-checks this year, I can see how this is going to get more press.

    5 fouls in 40 minutes is plenty.

    Wouldn't that have the opposite effect of what they're trying to do with the hand checking fouls? It seems they're trying to reduce aggressive defense to boost scoring and this would only make defense super aggressive again.

    The NBA, NCAA, and maybe even FIBA need to just sit down and hammer out a universal set of rules.

    Yes please. It should be 30 seconds max.

    Re: Thoughts on Dickie V's suggestion during last nights game

    The most simple solution is to just change the rules back. Get rid of it. No more refs calling fouls every 2 seconds. But if we're stuck in this new alternate universe of non-stop fouls, then yes I would agree that changing to 6 fouls would be good.

    Reducing the shot clock is a bad thing. It will make scoring go down even more.

    Re: Thoughts on Dickie V's suggestion during last nights game

    I may be in the minority, but I'm ok with the number of fouls and shot clock. Maybe just reduce the shot clock to 10 when the B1G plays.

    I wouldn't mind seeing the bonus and double bonus levels backed up to 10 and 15 respectively. From the games I've seen so far, we're in for a long free-throw ridden year.

    I doubt it. Yeah, for Wisconsin, who couldn't do anything in less than 35 seconds anyway, maybe but for teams like us it won't matter. It will just make the game move faster.


    It's all snark from here on out

    How will reducing the shot clock lower scoring? It will lead to more offensive possessions.
    It won't have a huge impact in fast paced games, but it will likely triple scoring in the Big 10.
