There, there, subby. Just show us on the schedule where your team got humiliated.

So,  subby is from Columbus, GA (that makes at least one other farker from there), but why would this story be greenlighted from the Columbus local paper instead of the Kansas City Star where it was originally reported?

As a Michigan fan I'm really excited to see these changes in the Big10.  Michigan is more of a finesse team and should benefit from a faster more offense focused game. Wisconsin won't be able to ruin basketball quite as much as they usually do with their super slow boring playstyle.  And, Aaron Craft will foul out in the first 5 minutes of every game.

I kind of want to see the video. Does "start of upward motion" begin when the dribbler starts his carry? You're talking a full step (or two) that you have to just park and hope to god he runs into you?

The hand calls are going to be interesting, as well.  If you make two steal attempts, is that a foul? I know I'm exaggerating (and a steal attempt should be clean), but just resting your hand on the dribbler's back is now a no-no?

Purdue will have to forfeit a game if hand checking is actually called.

Not sure why you think this would affect Wisconsin.  They still will refuse to run and use up 30 secs each possession with the swing.  Their defense is generally one of the least fouling units in the league (last year they fouled as much as your UM, both teams by far the least fouling in the league).

IMHO, PSU and Nebraska would both see raised foul totals because they aren't good at basketball.  Purdue and tOSU would because of style of play (hand checking).  I could see Illinois actually dropping for a couple reasons.  NW could draw more charges on backdoor cuts.

But the Big Ten officials will still probably let it be insanely physical.

"The games will be ugly, everyone will be unhappy about it," Oklahoma coach Lon Kruger said

Got news for ya Lon, the games are already ugly thanks to the amount of contact allowed.  When a player has to tuck the ball like it's a football when driving the lane, there's too much contact.

To my fellow B1G fans, have you completely forgotten how bad Sparty is at grabbing, holding, and shoving?  Of course I am talking about an Izzo coached team, so his teams won't get called as much.

I read this as, "There are rule changes about Bill Self," which I thought was kind of inappropriate for the rules committee to do.

/sentence-order makes a difference!

Uh, wut?

Wisky WAS a good non-fouling defensive team because under the old rules their "clutch, grab and bump" defense was allowed, especially at home and especially by homer B10 refs like Valentine and Hightower.

With the new rules, they theoretically won't be able to get away with that crap...although I'm skeptical to see if the B10 will adjust like other conferences do.  But quite frankly anything is better than the mugging that CBB had become.

You misspelled Bo Ryan.

Wisky moves their feet better than anyone else in the B10.  I do not think this will effect them as much as other teams.

It will clearly not speed up a Wisconsin game as they are so slow on offense and the main thing that slows up on the game on defense is their refusal to get beat on a fast break (only PSU has a lower off. rebounding %).

Purdue and tOSU should get dinged by the new rules because of the amount of hand checking both teams do.

Hand checking, yeah, Wisconsin doesn't do as much of that as some others.  If they ever decide to start calling fouls off the ball according to the rules though, Wisconsin is dead meat.  That's where they do their grabbing, bumping the cutter, etc.

is there a B10 team that doesn't?  I am an Illinois fan, and I'll admit that you can not run through the lane without the ball on them without getting bumped.

Maybe Michigan because they play the most zone...
