Yesterdays game between New Orléans and Minnesota has the sports radio lines buzzing over the NFL overtime rules. Big question is why is it the only overtime in major sports that doesn’t give both offences a chance to score.
College football is much like high school in that both teams have a chance to score and they get the ball on the 25 yard line. This is ridiculous because most teams begin in field goal range.
I don’t know what would be the best way. I guess if I was to make the rule it would be that both teams get the ball starting on the 50 and eliminate the field goal. Each team gets a chance but it would make each side have to go for the TD.
