Rather than move the ball back, how about removing one player from each side with each continued overtime.  That's be more interesting too.

 

Starting with the quarterback? Smiley

No amount of fair rules changes will make the game end any sooner because you are making it harder or easier for both teams.    Just suck it up and play ball!  This ain't tiddly winks! 

Make them switch end zones after each OT to address the crowd issue.

Eliminate blocking below the waist outside of the free blocking zone. If they are concerned about health and stress targeting, then this needs to be stressed as well.

I think I like the intent of the proposed change to the targeting rule.  Unfortunately it also inherently brings in another layer of subjectivity.

IMO, college football OT doesn't need changing.  Why change a system just because you may get one crazy 5+ OT game every decade?  Well over 90% of OT games are settled within a couple OT periods.  The NFL system is far too reliant on the coin toss.

Fully agree on OT.

I do think one thing that needs to be done is for the teams to start on the 50 yard line each time. RTR!

They already do that. One team picks (usually to go on defense first), the other team picks the direction of play.  If tied after OT1, repeat the choices.

It just looks the same on TV.   Laughing

Quote
The winner of the toss may not defer the choice and must
choose one of the following options:
1. Offense or defense, with the offense at the opponent’s 25-yard line to
start the first possession series.
2. Which end of the field shall be used for both possession series of that
overtime period.
c. The loser of the toss shall exercise the remaining option for the first extra
period and shall have the first choice of the two options for subsequent
even-numbered extra periods.

Au Contraire!  College teams that win the OT coin toss have a greater chance of winning than their NFL counterparts:

Watching the LSU/Aggies OT game, by the end of the game both defenses were too gassed to make a stop.  That's my real problem with extended OT games -- not some generic "player safety" argument, but real football terms --  every game turns into a Big12 game by the end.  So I stick with my position:

After 3 OTs, call it a tie.  But don't require teams to go for 2 point conversations -- leave it up to a coaching decision, like the good ole days, whether to go for the tie or a win at the end.
