    I like the time it takes to get a game in. Still long enough yet not too long. I think games will get played sooner and faster. I think the season will move along quicker as well.

    What do you guys think?

    IMO the upside to this far outweighs any downside.

    I think games are fast enough as is, if a guy holds the ball for a 4-6 min drive, he eats up a whole quarter pretty much. With that said, I am not against going 7 either. Either way it totally fine with me.

    I dont think going from 8 to 7 mins would help us advance any quicker. I really dont have a problem with the 8 min qtrs right now. i have not heard one complaint regarding this either and I think the league as a whole is okay with what we have now.

    With that being said, if I was presented with a good argument that favored 7min, i could be swayed.

    I personally do not have an opinion either way. I'm open to either setup. I think one minute off each quarter will not make a difference as far as time played and the like.

    I have seen guys eat up entire quarters with 8, I couldn't imagine going to 7 ...

    I prefer 8 as well - it just seems like with 7 minute quarters, you feel rushed when you get behind early b/c you don't have much time to come back.
