Why fixing college football's overtime rules should be way down the NCAA's list of priorities

Most people watched Texas A&M's seven-overtime win over LSU this past season marveling at the drama and all the clutch performances.

Key folks in college football looked at it and thought: This is bad.

Two months later, potential NCAA changes to the overtime rule are on the table specifically designed to curb epic overtime games.

So there's talk about moving the possessions in overtime back to the 35 or 40 from the 25. Or making teams go for the two-point conversion beginning with the first overtime, not the third as presently constituted. It should go no further than that with some tweaking.
