The overtime rules have changed for college football, and the new format is incredibly stupid.
According to Yahoo Sports, the NCAA has implemented a massive overhaul. Starting in the third overtime, teams will no longer start with the ball from the 25-yard line and be forced to go for two point conversions.

College football’s overtime rules have changed again. Beginning next season, teams will be required to go for two beginning in double-overtime.

Instead, teams will just have alternating two-point conversion attempts starting in the third overtime, and two-point conversion attempts will be mandatory starting in the second overtime.
I hate the NCAA so much that it’s not even funny. Why did the overtime rules have to change? Seriously, I want an explanation immediately.
Fans love chaos and we love carnage. Now, we’ve been robbed of the few great overtime games you get every decade. I stayed up for every snap of LSU/Texas A&M, and I loved it.
I didn’t care at all that I was exhausted and probably a bit too drunk because the beers were going down easy. I just wanted to be a part of the moment.
Now, thanks to the geniuses at the NCAA, that will never happen again because we’ll just have alternating two-point plays starting in the third overtime.
What a joke. The NCAA is pathetic and everyone involved in this situation should be embarrassed.
