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.

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.

The NCAA has more or less just made sure we never see a glorious overtime game like when LSU and Texas A&M went into seven overtimes.

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.
