And along the lines of "if it doesn't happen in the pros, it shouldn't happen in college", I think tennis is pretty darn close. Tennis as a whole, has international rules that are produced by the ITF. Those get adjusted by organizations like the USTA, ITA and the NCAA, but for the most part if it is happening on tour it is a rule in any place in the world you play the game.

Compare that to football or basketball. Kickoffs from different yard lines, different distances for 3 pointers, down by contact, shot clock duration, tuck rules, instant replay, etc. Other than the score keeping and size of the field, it is barely the same game.

I mean, what are we supposed to do...require all schools implement a hawk eye system?
