I've always thought the college 3-line has been too short and easy.

I wonder if there are any players who would have made a different decision about declaring for the NBA Draft if they knew the three-point line would move back.

Current rule is that the team with possession of the ball, and only the team with possession of the ball, can call a live ball timeout -- e.g., player dribbles up the court, sees that his coach wants a timeout, player asks an official for a timeout. Currently, a live ball timeout can only be called by a player who is on the court. Officials don't recognize a coach asking for a live ball timeout.

The only change here will be that the coach of a team who has possession will now be recognized if he asks for a live ball timeout; he won't have to get one of his players to do it. A team without possession will still not be permitted to call a live ball timeout.

And only in the last tow minutes of the half. So you are probably only going to maybe one more TO called in a typical game.


The timeout rule change the NCAA should make is one they made in the NBA a few years ago: Each team can only call, at most, two timeouts in the last two minutes of regulation.

And they need to adopt the old NBA rule. After a certain point, the team gets 3 shots to make 2. The hacking at the end of the game is ridiculous. Maybe you do it after 10 fouls or simply 10 fouls if 3 are in the last two minutes.

The end of game hacking is worse in college ball than in the NBA because college ball has a much higher percentage of poor free throw shooters. College coaches start telling players to foul sometimes with more than 2 minutes left, because they know there's a good chance the fouled player will miss at least one free throw. In an NBA game, if 4 of the 5 players on offense shoot 80+ percent on free throws, then until about the last minute of the 4th quarter you're usually better off trying to get a stop on defense.

Another issue is the nba, with the shorter shot clock, allows for more possessions without fouling than college does

Refs cannot consistently toss the ball properly. I remember before alternating possession. Its better than random toss.

Correct. It’s easier at the beginning of the game because you generally have two players of near equal size. It’s really hard to throw a jump ball mid game when one player is 6’8, for example, and the other is 6’1”
