We are lucky to only lose Naadir for one game.
Exhibition games are pretty much just that. Coach was right when he said a team would be much, much better off using that time for regular practices. It also seems obvious that he has it right when he talks about the "negative" impact the new hand checking rule is going to have on the game itself. Tons of foul calls, with the resulting stoppages of play causing the game to lose significant continuity ~ as well as the impact of players getting into foul trouble. Hard to see any positives for the game ~ and, in particular, for our Jayhawks.
There will be an adjustment period for the new rules but this helps the game in the long run. Teams will quickly figure out they'd better stop hand checking like they used to or foul out of the game - choose your poison. The new rules help KU the most because KU is NOTORIOUS for taking offensive charges in critical stages of games.
