NCAA may move 3-point line back a foot

Today the NCAA rules committee approved a measure that will move the 3-point line back from 19 feet, 9 inches to 20 feet and 9 inches. If approved, this will be the first major change to the three point line since it was introduced some two decades ago. It would take effect, if approved, in November of 2008.

Thoughts on this? I've always thought the 3-point line was a bit too close and wouldn't be that upset if it was moved back a bit. Though I've got to wonder what that will do to teams that live and die by the three. And of course, we can't forget the really last big three pointer in Utah history...
