Pro. because it is REAL football. not putting the ball on the 25 yard line. it is unfair to a defense.

I like Pro. I know the stats in college overtime have to be kept. But when games go to quadrupal overtime it really distorts the stats.

Sudden death keeps you on the edge of your seat.

And teams have to play real football. Field position matters. Defense is the key. Special teams is the critical 3rd phaze.

The rule has survived in the NFL for over 50 years. see "The Greatest Game Ever Played".

I am glad they have never messed with the rule.

I'd pick college but they need to make some adjustments because defenses are at a huge disadvantage and the games are just lasting too long. I'd have each team start at the 40 and make it mandatory to go for two in each overtime instead of just beginning with the 3rd OT.

College overtime bites i hate it

because some teams have a way better offense than defense so they just keep scoring and the overtime keeps going and the defense dosent really matter until overtime 3 and higher when you have to go for 2

how is it unfair? both teams get the same opportunity. if anything pro overtime is unfair. whoever wins the coin toss has the first opportunity to score and if they do so, the other team gets nothing, the offense has to watch helplessly from the sideline.

College but they should Move it to the 40 yd line bc it isnt rewarding the D Fence for a stop if a team gets 3 and out and then they are in feild goal range move them back!

Read my post from above. Make them go for two in overtime after every score not just starting with the 3rd.

College overtime, at least they cant just march down the field line up for a field goal kick it and win the game that makes it boring. In college both teams get a even chance.
