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."
