Men's College Recruiting: GW Adds Four to Youthful Roster

Proposed NCAA Rule Changes By Wolf Wigo

It is a lengthy document, and I'll read over with some of my own insight later on. Here are the key differences from FINA that were proposed: 1. Ordinary fouls" are eliminated – there are only "technical fouls" (2 hands, inside the 2, ball under etc.) for which the ball is turned over and "personal fouls." Impeding and pushing are now classified as personal fouls. 2. Tackling is eliminated. Defensive players are permitted to push or impede the movement of a player "holding the ball" but are never permitted to "grab, hold, or sink" an opponent. 3. All personal fouls will be counted as personal faults against the offending player and with the exception of offensive fouls, count as team fouls. Each player will be excused from the game after accumulating 4 personal faults. For team fouls 1 – 5, in each half, the offending defensive player will be excluded for 20 seconds. For the 6th team foul, and every foul thereafter in each half, the player fouled will be awarded a penalty shot. 4. The referee will stop play and call the ball out of the water after every personal foul. This rule change, which brings the sport in line with all other sports. The immediate shot after a foul beyond 5M and the "quick" (which absolutely no one outside the inner circle of water polo understands) are eliminated. It is also important to remember that one of the primary purposes of these rules is to drastically reduce the number of whistles and number of fouls called during a game – and every personal foul will result in either a 6 on 5 or a penalty shot. 5. There is a delayed call when an advantage situation exists. If a goal is not scored, the offending player and team will be penalized. 6. The field is reduced in length from 30 meters to 20 meters. 7. Field blocking with two hands is permitted, but two hands cannot touch the ball at the same time. 8. The offense retains possession after any defensive player tips a shot out of bounds. 9. After a goal, the ball is put in play by a goal throw, after having been handled by the referee. (Players do not need to be lined up in their own half).
