Aaron Craft Demonstrates the "New" Foul Rules in College Basketball

Aaron Craft answers a question about how he thinks he smells after a game.

Confused about the new points of emphasis in regards to defensive fouls? Aaron Craft is here to show you what will be considered a foul in college basketball for the 2013-14 season.

Today we're going to look at some of the new points of emphasis in college basketball. It is not a rule change, per se, but simply an enforcement of current rules that have apparently gone by the wayside in recent years. Aaron Craft has volunteered to show us what the refs will be looking for. Let's have a look:

Foul_01_medium

This is a textbook example of what the rule is trying to prevent. A hand, or in this case a forearm, on the body of a player on the perimeter will be called a foul.

Foul_02_medium

Once again, this is a hand (arm) on the body. Also a foul.

Foul_03_medium

Now here the opponent is on the move, and Mr. Craft has been kind enough to show another one of the points of emphasis. He is using an armbar to impede the progress of an opponent, and thus should be called for a foul.

Any other examples, Aaron?

Foul5_medium

Ah yes, another armbar. Once again, this is a foul. Can you show us something we haven't covered?

Foul1_medium

OK, good. Here you've made significant contact with the offensive player while reaching for the ball. This isn't new and it isn't on the new points of emphasis list, but it is still a foul just like it always has been.

Foul6_medium

Right, another reach-in with heavy contact. We get it. Still a foul.

Alright fuck, dude, we get the point. You like to reach for the ball. Fine. I know you've been getting away with it, but that shit has always been a foul.

Maybe we should just do a quick refresher course on EVERYTHING you can't do in basketball...

Foul17_medium

You can't hit a player on the arm while they're in the act of shooting. That's a foul.

Foul20_medium

That's pushing. Pushing is a foul.

Foul4_medium

God damn it, that's a reach-in foul and we already covered that.

Foul13_medium

What the fuck are you doing there? I don't even know if there's a specific rule that governs this behavior, but it's clearly a foul. You seem to do a lot of this type of shit. It's basically an all-out assault on the player with the basketball. I don't know even know what to call that. Let's just get them all out of the way and file them under "dick fouls."

Jesus, dude, do you ever NOT foul? Seriously.

Can you give us one single example where you're playing defense and not engaged in the act of fouling?

Seriously.

Just one....
