Poll results: Earlier start, shorter shot clock

At a May 2 meeting, the NCAA Board of Directors will vote on moving up the start of practice by two to three weeks (would be Sept. 27 or Oct. 4 this season). And the following week in Indianapolis, the men's basketball rules committee will vote on moving the shot clock from 35 to 30 seconds. After an informal poll of 37 Division I coaches Monday, the consensus seems to be "yes" for both. (ESPN.com)
