    Good. Hand-checking was always supposed to be against the rules. Can you imagine how unstoppable Brad Beal would have been going to the basket if guys weren't allowed to bump and grab and smack him?

    This is going to be a GREAT change IF they enforce it. I'm skeptical, but everyone is suggesting it will be noticeable, and has been already in scrimmages.

    Watch though, when games start lasting closer to 3 hours than two and many turn into free throw shooting contests, you'll see some fans and media start complaining. Frequent whistles are the only thing that will keep coaches from teaching defensive techniques that look more like assault than anything else. Eventually, if the whistles persist, coaches and players will adjust and the game will be much more free flowing - more like the NBA.

    I am not too worried about the long games what was happening made me stop watching college basketball unless the Gators were playing or it was the tournament.

    The bold is what I am hoping for even if it takes a few years

    It could lead to higher scoring games, because teams will have to adapt or otherwise be in foul trouble all the time.

    Say goodbye to Aaron Craft's "defense".

    Have think this is not a favor to Donovan's strong defense. Shot blockers will do well, but the advantages we have with Prather, Yeguette and Wilby may disappear.

    I have a friend who officiates college games and he is an Indiana fan and hates UK; however, he told me that it will help the dribble drive because there are supposed to be fewer charges called and because you can't force the dribbler out of his route.

    The flopping hopefully will stop.

    This doesn't take away players' lateral quickness. It does take away, supposedly, defenders' ability to initiate contact (bump, grab, etc) and players who constantly flop. I think its a big hit to some Big 10 teams and teams like UL. Not as big a hit to Florida.

    Keep in mind, its also an advantage on offense. Hill and Carter will be next to impossible to guard. Especially in a year when 3pt shooting may not be a strength, the ability to get to the rim at will would be invaluable.

    Good point above. This is a big rule change, but when combined with the change to the charge/block rule that also favors the offense, it is potentially a HUGE change.

    If you can't put your hand on the defender, your alternative is to move laterally and get your body in front. But, the new rules make that harder too, so what is left?

    Mcgary from Mich will foul out in 5 minutes. His entire defense is kneeing the defender on ball screens.

    The purpose is to allow the offense to have an equal chance instead of the officiating stopping moves to the basket and forcing steal through illegal contact.

    In other words the rules have not changed except the basketball rules are to be enforced instead of ignored.

    According to my friend the officials allowed to call the tourneys will be the ones who follow the rules.

    If the players don't change the way they play then we will see 3 hour games.

    Actually REM, I think that if the officials call this consistently, that coaches and players will necessarily alter their style to keep from fouling out. No team can afford many players either in foul trouble or fouling out, so I just can't see this occurring.
