    NCAA recommends rule changes for men's basketball: technical fouls for flopping, experimenting with six fouls

    =====================================================
    1. Technical fouls for flopping!
    My favorite - let them play through the physical contact. In the last two seasons, refs have been giving warnings to little effect.

    "After two years of using warnings, we didn't feel like we were getting the results that we wanted," Colorado coach Tad Boyle, the outgoing chair of the rules committee, said. "We are trying to get flopping out of our game. We're asking the officials to call them when they happen."


    2. Increase to six fouls, with a maximum of four fouls allowed per half (experimental in NIT) Will Coach White still pull his player after picking up two 1st half fouls? My goodness - playing a player with 4 fouls in the 1st half? lol!

    My opinion: "Let your best players play for as long as they can in a game!"


    3. Allowance at the league level for coaches to use technology, live statistics and video on the bench.

    4. Team timeouts can serve as/replace media timeouts
    "Under this proposal, if a coach calls a timeout at the 18-minute mark, it will serve as the under-16-minute media timeout," the NCAA's release said. "If either team calls a timeout under the 16-minute mark, it will serve as the under-12-minute media timeout. Under this scenario, the next media timeout wouldn't occur until the under-eight-minute mark."

    5. Shot clocks will now be able to display tenths of a second
    ====================================================

    Rules up for discussion that were not recommended by the committee include the following:
    quasi-quarters,
    widening the lane,
    removing offensive basket interference and
    eliminating the 10-second backcourt violation, among others.

    College basketball rule changes up for debate: Six fouls, quasi-quarters, reducing timeouts and more

    =====================================================

    Don't like 6 fouls. BB was once considered to be a non-contact sport, but now its the most physical players have the advantage. I think if a physical player with the ball backs down a lighter player that has position, that's a charge on the bigger player.

    Can't agree with you on that one, brother.

    A "shake" that causes the defender to move (giving up defensive position) gives the offensive player some leeway to bump and back a defender down. Once something like that starts it is almost impossible for the defender to establish a proper defensive position again.

    A lowered shoulder into the properly positioned defender is a violation. So too is a "chicken wing". If the defender establishes a defensive position and keeps it it should be an offensive foul except for incidental contact. This now gets complicated about maintaining position. It does not mean that you remain stationary in spite of what you might heard from announcers. I don't want to get into that can of worms. <joke>It is kind of like Justice Potter Stewart said about pornography: "I can't define it, but I know it when I see it."</joke>

    I am in favor of the 6-foul rule. There are way too many players who sit on the bench during the 1st-halves of games because they picked up 2 ticky-tacky fouls. The big change that I would like to see made is to revise the redshirt rule so that it tracks the football redshirt rule. In other words, I would like see kids be able to redshirt if they play no more than 1/3rd of a team's games.

    I understand what you were saying, I just can't agree with you. Backing down a defender is a staple of low-post play that I don't think needs to be eliminated. The only part of it I don't like is sometimes a big man will be banging down low backing someone up and then the minute the defender bangs back, they call foul. I feel like if he does it, I should be able to do it. A bigger guy was killing me in the post a few weeks ago just like that and the refs wouldn't let me body him up the same way. Then I got tired of it and put the team in zone and that ended that real quick. ;)

    Refs always give the star players star quality calls. The stars pay the bills.

    Funny now that filters down to where the stars are not paying the bills.

    Theoretically you could end up with a league full of Bill Lambiers. That would be boring. Skill, not size, should dictate how the sport is played.

    Don’t like allowing 6 fouls. This will turn the game into a free throw shooting contest more than it does already. Plus, the five fouls makes coaches use strategy more and in turn makes for a more interesting game. Leave the 5 foul rule alone.

    I say change it. There are way too many officials who call fouls on every bit of contact under the sun. If that is going to continue, then I am in favor of going to 6 fouls.

    In today's game? You are really reaching... even by caveating it with theoretically, you are still reaching. What problem are we trying to fix? Even in the era of the big man, was this really a problem?

    Pretty much everything. The constant backing down of defenders is what has turned me off of the pro game. It's not football. Skill should matter in basketball, not just size and strength.

    I feel like you haven't watched a pro game in 15 years for you to say that. There is almost zero posting up and backing down anymore. Maybe you are watching ESPN Classic by mistake and thinking it's a live game.

    That would be a positive change.

    Fouling the sh*t out of you became the norm with the rise of Laimbeer and the Pistons. Then it infected college ball and scoring (and the game) suffered.

    I don't.
    I loved it in high school, but when I started watching college ball, I saw that the game had a smoother flow with halves. When I watch a women's college game, I find the quartered game quite irksome, vexatious, pestiferous, and perplexing.
