I like the old "Sudden Death" rule. You have played 60 minutes. You HAD your chance to win.
And, just because the other team "wins the toss", that doesn't mean your defense can't stop them from scoring.
And, if you give up a long return on the kickoff, then that is YOUR fault, not the fault of the rules.
Take responsibility for your own actions. Stop trying to blame it on a rule.
Hate the new rules, hate college OT. OT should be sudden death - if you lose the coin flip, your D has to stop the other team. Period. If the other team drives the length of the field and scores, well, it sucks to be you.YESSSS!!! THANK YOU GUYS!!! THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT!!!
The reason I refer to the new rules as liberal is because they were spawned by the same libbie, namby pamby mentality of holding every kid in school down to the lowest common denominator because we can;t have anyone's self-esteem be hurt now can we? Never mind the RAMPANT BULLYING EPIDEMIC
that's actually causing FAR more damage to self-esteem (and physically too) that these same libbies refuse to address, probably because it might hurt the self-esteem of the bullies if they did
There are many MANY problems that needed to be addressed and solved in the NFL before changing the OT rules just because a bunch of mediots whined about it. And under Badell, the list seems to grow by the year.
I despise college OT because it turns the game into nothing but a scoring contest. Give each team the ball at the 25 and whoever fails to score first loses. Meh. I've seen games tied in the teens and 20s after regulation end up with both teams scoring in the 50s--and OT stats are actually allowed to count the same as regulation stats
It turns into an endurance test for the viewer in which you literally start thinking the game will never end. Even when I watched college football I'd change the channel after the first 3 OT possessions because at that point I was so tired I didn't even care who won.
