    I'm in favor of the shorter shot clock, but if they change the rule it's going to be weird when they arbitrarily revert back to 35 second clock in mid January like they did with the 'freedom of movement' rule.

    OT but why are both Harrisons strechting and yawning in that picture?

    They all sound good to me. We lost points several times because continuation wasn't called correctly. Hopefully they just make it a point of emphasis and not like the nba.

    Only thing I'm in favor of is the shorter shot clock to 30 seconds. Fewer timeouts is RIDICULOUS...the "length of the game" problem is not because of coaches, it's because of the $%@#!$%#!% commercial breaks every 4 minutes of play.

    Also, what am I missing about this?
    I can't recall a single time I've seen a player called for charging and the basket still count. I don't understand what this is saying.

    actually, i thought if the shot went up before the charge they still counted the basket. terrible rule, of course.

    On the shot clock, why in the world would anyone want to take a game that is much superior to the NBA and try to make it more like the NBA?

    Because the nation doesn't agree with that based on ratings I guess. CBB can't even get it's own video game now ;/. Can we start a petition to get NCAA March Madness back. I only own gaming consoles for sports games, and I want to be Florida and win 8 national titles in a row darnit!!##!#@@!

    If they only make one change, please make it be the backcourt rule.

    I find it absurd that a team in trouble in the backcourt calls a timeout and gets an additional 10 seconds to cross the midcourt line.

    Agreed! This is one rule change that will benefit the Gators.
    I have mixed feelings about a shorter shot clock. I could go with 30 seconds, but no shorter. Don't care for the NBA 24-second clock...too many bad shots, too much one-on-one.

    I think I vaguely remember seeing this at least once or twice. Not sure if it was a Gator game.

    What happened was the player came down the lane, put up a "floater" in the lane, and then barreled through the defender for the charge. The rule was that the guy had taken the shot (ball left his hands) before he made contact, therefore it was 2 points and then basically a "loose ball foul". I just remember the circumstances, but I have no idea what teams or if it was a Gator game or someone else.

    It must be incredibly rare call. I think this one must have been in a late game situation, because I remember the announcers going on about it and how they'd never seen it before.

    The no timeouts thing is just stupid.

    Sounds like the mess they made when they tried to "shorten the game" in football. But the problem has nothing to do with the rules of the game, it's the damn $$$ and tv commercials!!!

    What they should do, is if a coach calls a timeout. Use that for a full commercial break. Then limit the "TV timeout" that follows to a shorter 30 second timeout at most (or just eliminate the TV timeout entirely if it's within 1 minute game time of the coach calling a TO). That way the game isn't interrupted by back to back full commercial breaks. Think they will do that? Nope.

    Instead they consider trying to "shorten the game". Give me a break.

    Nail on the head. I always get a kick out of the shorten the game attempts. Sure it shortens the actual game, but they're going to keep it in the same 2 hour window, it's just more commercial time they can sell. Same thing with the stupid idea of eliminating extra points in the nfl

    Yeah, this sounds like the only way that situation would ever occur, especially with the new emphasis on the defender having to be set when the offensive player begins his upward shooting movement. Has to be an extremely rare call

    I agree with this. I don't like the NBA and love the different styles represented in the college game. Leave the shot clock alone.

    On the timeout thing- they already have one "use it or lose it" TO in the first half. Why not do the same thing at the 2:00 mark of the 2nd half so both teams, at most, have 2 time outs once the clock hits 2:00. That will shorten the end of games.

    I can see the shorter shot clock and the backcourt rule helping the Gators significantly. Our press already has many teams setting up their offense with ~20 seconds remaining on the clock. Now we will have them with even less time.

    This is closely related to my biggest pet peeve and deepest desire: if a coach calls a timeout after the 16, 12, 8 or 4-minute marks, but before the respective media timeout is triggered by a stoppage of play, THAT $&*@)*$)@( TIMEOUT NEEDS TO COUNT AS THE MEDIA TIMEOUT. None of this nonsense where a coach calls a full timeout at 7:56, we get a full commercial break, come back, get 10 seconds of play, there's a foul and then another full commercial break comes along. Just stop that.

    To be fair, Billy D loves this move...but that's just him taking advantage of the rules as they exist.

    OMG, did I just make an argument for Calipari being something other than a dirty rotten scoundrel? Nah...

    Oh, it's a wonderful chance to get your guys some rest. It's not Billy's job to entertain me.
