NCAA's new three-point line has little effect

I am not sure the statistics "three-point percentage across D 1" and "three-pointers attempted across D 1" are very useful.
I would expect the effect of the new line to be very minor in games between teams of similar quality and athleticism (with the added distance more or less canceled out by the additional defensive spacing issues making for easier shots); on the other hand, I would expect a much larger impact on games between power-house major conference programs and smaller schools (who often relied on three-point shooting to pull an upset here and there).
It would be interesting, therefore, to see a breakdown of the three-point statistics.

I didn't even notice a difference.

If anything, defenses will just stay in the paint even more. Making a 3 pointer harder is it's own defense. What's the point of going out to defend a 3 pointer when it's harder to make? Might as well guard against the drive instead.
And why the need to open up the lane? It's almost like they don't want defense to be played. If so, just make each game a free throw shooting contest, it would accomplish the same purpose. What next, banning blocks, steals and defensive rebounds? Might as well.
