I was watching PTI today and Wilbon had a great idea. He said that the NCAA should consider adopting some of the international rules for hoops. Not only would this move the three-point line back (something we all know needs to be done), but it would also prepare the players for international competition. What do you think?

Yes move the three point line back, but leave everything else alone.

I think the falling out of bounds timeouts are pretty rediculous....

Three point line should be moved back. That shot is like a layup for many players these days, and it shouldn't be worth 50% more points as it is now.

Mvoing the 3point line back would definetly have hurt west virginia. There would have been no way that the game was that close if the 3point line was back a couple feet.

It's not Wilbon's idea, I've been hearing this for a few years now and I think some conferences were even going to experiment with International Rules in exhibitions and stuff.

The only rule change I will agree with that I have seen on here is the arrow. Let them jump it up for sure. I don't want to see international rules hit the college game. If I wanted that I would watch the international game in the first place.

I've always thought highschool, college, and international had the same 19.9 ft. 3 point line.

3 Point Line:
Pro: Allows the less-talented teams to stay in the game with the Dukes of the world

Con: The shot has become a crutch, and the move from the NCAA's to the NBA is huge.

I say move it back, but only by a foot.
