The college OT can be fun to watch but is a complete distortion of the game. At what other point do you line each team up and start the the 25. Unless a team messes up it means that you have already a relatively short FG try. If one team messes up their possession the other doesn't even bother trying to get a first down. They just run the ball to set up the kick. At the same time they completely eliminate huge elements of the game and certain strengths and weaknesses that teams have used to get to that point. You eliminate the punters, the punt returners, KO returners and kick coverage teams. You also eliminate the deep passing game and the ability to maintain a long sustained drive. In it's place you have a game that is almost a pure red zone game. One of the arguments made at the time they implemented it was that they didn't want the players to have to play extended periods of time. Since teams are so frequently matching scores and going into the 3rd, 4th, even 6th and 7th OT I would argue that they are playing longer than they would if they just added an extended sudden death period with each team guaranteed one possession. Because it is pure red zone the scores and the stats coming out of it are also a joke. Last night the Navy QB set a new NCAA record for rushing TDs by a QB of 7 in a game. What won't be noted is that 3 of them came in OT where the rules are different and the ball is already advanced close to the red zone.
