Id rather them have to make a first down. Too many times one team gets stopped and the other team sits on the ball for a couple of downs and then kicks an easy fg for the win. It gives an big advantage to the team getting the ball second, and makes these things go into 7 OTs.

Agree that something should be done about the overtime system. As it is currently, it is not football.

This should have been on my list.

Take sack yardage out of total yards.. Not rushing yards.

Start overtime at the 40 and play the same way. It's dumb to start off already in field goal range.

Hot dogging immediate ejection. No players pointing for first downs, do somersaulting on purpose into end zone

No Sack dances (Sorry Gastineau)

Muffle Lou Holtz

I like the OT on the 40 idea too.

Agree with needing to tweak the overtime rules. I'd start it at midfield. Make teams work for their points.

Also don't allow a team to call a timeout a fraction of a second before a team kicks a field goal. That is an absurdity. Put some restrictions on that.

Also, no back-to-back timeouts, ever. This includes coming out of a TV timeout. It just slows the game down way too much.

I would change the OT rules.

They should change to more ike the NFL system, "Slow Death".

The current OT rules totally eliminate the kick return game. That's just wrong. You play one game for 60 monutes, and then for overtime you play another game. That's dumb. What if you have a star returner? All of a sudden he's taken out of the game for OT? That doesn't make sense.


Coin toss, winner picks to receive or kick.

Receiving team (team1) plays by same rules as regulation. If they score, TD or FG, opponent (team2) has an opportunity on offense. If no score, team2 gains possession (either on downs or by punt)

If team2 ties game, kick off. Team1 returns and given opportunity to score. If score, team2 receives kick...

Repeat as necessary.

This getting the ball at the 35 in total BS.

1. Pick the best 30 college football programs , and have them play a 16 game schedule with playoffs.

2. Pay players (living expenses)

3 give Bama the death penalty.

Make the wins count.

Make the conference championship wins mean something, not just another game.

Make the opponents to every team in the conference as equitable as possible.

Make the opponents to every team in the conference as equitable as possible.


Strength of schedule needs to matter.

College players should not be allowed to tweet during the season.

Espn would be forced to change from an opinion/commentary faux news outlet into a purely sporting event broadcast channel.

1) Eliminate OT and bring back ties - sometimes neither team is better and this is the proper result.

2) If offense is inside its own 20 and a penalty is called that would not give full yardage (only 1/2 distance to goal), the other team should have the option of either:

A) adding the total penalty yardage to "back end" to increase yard necessary for first down; or

B) take a down away.

- Only teams who are members of a 12+ member conference with a championship game would be eligible for the championship.

- Championship participants would be determined 100% by computer algorithm pre-agreed upon before the start of the season.

Yes, LSU should be allowed to play Towson if they like. I see nothing wrong with that.

Start overtime with a kickoff.

You have to at least have played in your conference championship game to make playoffs

Mandatory each team plays a team from a bcs conference each year with conferences rotating every 2 years

Mandatory that any college player arrested and taken to court before a judge be suspended until due process

Each home team allocates 10000 seats to the visiting team

Independent agency with no ties to conference makes the conference schedule each year

Suspended for saying God wanted us to win. Why didn't God want the other team? God bets? and thanking God or Jesus or Elijah Muhammed or whomever. Thank your parents and coach.

The immediate press release of who wears #18 next season after the final play of current season.

American Idol style voting on reviewed plays

No FG's or kicked xp's in OT.

Personal foul, do away with 15 yds..1 less player the next play

Do away with down with no contact
