He might not have used those exact words, but he certainly made that suggestion or the NCAA put out they basically wanted more block calls.

The problem is this rule really was not very well thought out. They just adopted a rule from the NBA without really knowing how it was going to change things. Now they have many calls that are just bad IMO and do not even involve the rule they changed this for.

This is why you do not react and change rules overnight. But then again, this is what coaches do and that is who is on the committee for the most part.
