Can you please explain how it's not
I see a world of difference between "how the rules are setup" vs "what strategy a team / coach employs within a given set of rules".

you gif was addressing the latter, mine the former. get rid of OT, but by all means, coaches and players should "play to win", not "play for the tie".
 

Not Sure

Sets low bar, barely exceeds it.

You can still play for the tie. In fact, most teams do. They know they get a re-set for OT.

I have yet to see a compelling argument against the system as it’s currently constructed.

Ties are stupid. Figure out a way to find a winner of the football game that gets played one time a week. That was my point.

This isn't the old days, there should be no ties. I'm remember back in the 80s and early 90s where it wasn't real uncommon to see them.

No I didn't, 19-19, if I recall. I get what you're saying though. That could've been another year, not sure.

It was that 1991 Nubs game that resulted in the 19-19 tie. Woody Paige likened that to kissing your own sister.

Nothing better than drinking a bunch of beer and then needing 20 minutes to strip down enough to get rid of it.

And streaking across that football field like Luke did that day. That explains his memory of that game.

ESPN has an article posted today that Alabama is expected to win the National title again, despite losing weapons all over the field from this years National Championship team. How, the article asked: "The Tide have signed 77 ESPN 300 players in their past four recruiting classes"

WOW! 77 top 300 players in a four year span :oops:

Yes, that is impressive, but keep in mind that is 77 of 1200 over a 4 year span. Not 25% of the Top 300 in a single year.

I would take 77 over the 10 from CU in that same time period. The Buffs 10 include Grant Polley and Jason Harris who never played, 4 JC transfers and Moretti, leaving only 3 players who were signed out of HS who have actually played. That 77 number is enormous from both a talent and depth perspective.
