Lightbulb Rule change time

We haven't done this for quite a while, so I thought I'd bring it up again. If you could change just one rule in either NF or NCAA, what would it be and why? I'll throw this one out to start. Eliminate 5 second closely guarded counts in any games that have a shot clock. It's redundant.

Eliminate three seconds. That way the parents will be quiet.

Actually, eliminate the fashion police rules. Not my yob man.

Free throw

Allow non shooters on the lane to enter on release. Now that we have moved them back a spot, it is almost impossible to block out the shooter.

Really? I'm not questioning the possibility of the shooter getting the rebound, but I've not seen this once, since the rule change, where the shooter has "shot the hole" and made it to the basket before the inside players. Has you seen the shooter make it to the basket untouched?

Jump stop

Jump Stop,
It confuses the Traveling violation call and too many officials either do not understand it or just do not call it correctly.

Same one I always say:
No more timeout requests from the coach.

Oh, and my quixotic arrow issue: flip the arrow as soon as it's at the disposal of the thrower.

Get rid of the 5 second closely guarded count, except on a held ball within 3 feet.

Amen. In fact, it's worth two. Amen.

Also, just two minor changes in the jump ball rules. First, eliminate the jump ball that starts the game. Second, eliminate the jump ball that starts the extra periods. Flip a coin, like in soccer, and football.

I agree about coaches calling TO.

But my big issue, after taking a year off and now coming back into it "fresh", is the whole "team control or not on a throw-in, and whether or not someone can catch a ball or not after it's been tipped by a teammate or opponent, while she's in the air or straddling the line, etc, etc, etc". Ugh. CLEAN THAT ONE UP!!

But mostly, I wish they'd just leave all the rules the same for a couple of years. Maybe next year?? This year it got down to the darn headband definition, for pete sake. How about let's leave it now? One year with NO RULE CHANGES!?!?

Then we'd hear "We paid all you guys to get together and meet and you didn't DO anything?"

Agree. I've always said, after twenty-eight years of doing this, that the rules are easy to understand, it's the rule changes that make it confusing.

So, you want the NFHS to make a rule that there will be no rule changes? But isn't that in itself a rule change? I still have great memories of that old change in status rule. Can you all hear Barbra Streisand singing in the background?
