    The debut of the new overtime rule happened today. Virginia tech and unc went to 6 OT. Starting in OT5 teams take turns attempting 2 point conversions.

    What does everyone think of this change? It's something that wont happen much, but in the rare instance it does, is it a good thing?

    Probably shaved well over half an hour off this game.

    I think it’s stupid and a change that wasn’t needed. At the same time, it’s going to be very rarely needed.

    I wondered what the hell happened in the box score, I thought that VT incredibly won on a safety in OT of all places.

    If they're going to do it this way, why not do it after the second OT?

    Really favors offensively inept teams like the hawks.

    Uh, because they were the best example I could think of to make my point. Sorry Brian.

    Wasn't needed. How many went over 5 OT's anyway? And how long (in literal time) did that 5-7 OTs take in that game to make this happen? I like the normal rules better.

    How about after 3 overtimes they have a kick off? Who can make the longest field goal?

    After the fourth OT they have an arm wrestling contest at mid field.

    I think two OT’s are enough. After that the tie is broken by which head coach can throw his headset the farthest.

    If a violent game like football requires a limiting of the length of the game for the safety of its players--and I believe it does--then maybe after three OTs the game simply ends in a tie. The teams played an even game, and that is that.

    I like the NFL rule. I'm fine with the occasional tie. Bloated stats with the current OT rules really make some teams/players look much better than they are statistically. Especially if the game is a physical low scoring contest that turns into a shootout in the OT periods.

    NFL overtime is so horrendously bad compared to college.

    One word - Quizbowl. Hear me out:

    After three OTs, go to a lightening round style trivia contest between one member of each team. Most right answers in 2 minutes wins. Fast, entertaining (even if unintentionally) and at least pays lip service to "student athlete."

    Does it have to take place at midfield? :)
