    Something needs to be done with all these replay reviews

    Talk about killing the flow of a game. Geesh, as if commercials after each drive aren't bad enough, it seems like the booth reviews are just getting out of hand. Honest to God, if I didn't have money on these games, I'd be getting wrapped up in Andy Griffith reruns at every timeout.

    Give the booth 45 seconds max to review a play. If they can't make a determination, it must be too close to call and the original call stands.

    (Noticed early on that college basketball refs really seem eager to go to the monitor this year)

    I hear you, last year St. John's was involved in a 5 point game, With 1:51 left down 5, johnnies hit a bucket, cut it to 3, shooting foul on Nova guy sends him to line, hits the 2, johnnies answer, back to 3 points, time out, then hack a shack, free throws, time out again, and on and on. Long story short, no shit because I looked at the clock, the final 1:51 of that game took 23 real time minutes.

    Good points

    The time limit on the review would really speed up the game

    You can tell in one minute if the call is correct

    Blame it on HD cameras.
