We were a little late for 3OT Thread, but please head over here for 4th OT+
commentators: "they shorted the overtime for uhhh injuries!! not television! nothing to do with television! please ignore!"
They should make it so the defense and offense have to switch roles.
Revenge of the Crane!
#YEAH WE FANCY LIKE APPLBEEEEES ON A DATE NIGHT
That’s game unfortunately
Let’s see auburn throw a fade route
What a stupid celebration
I need to poop, someone win plz.
Wait they get the ball at the 3?
Cheering for Auburn is so damn frustrating
Bring ties back
holy shit, they still get timeouts even though there are only two plays?
I came back from wine tasting in Napa and Mariah karaoke on a party bus to see Auburn collapse, please go 10 OTs and win Auburn
Let's continue the [discussion in the 3+ OT thread!](https://www.reddit.com/r/CFB/comments/r3ras1/game_thread_alabama_auburn_330pm_et_3_ot_thread/)
The old rules were fine wtf
What’s with crane pose all game?
i want this to go 17 overtimes
i want to wake you p tomorrow and see like 56-56 still in progress ot 381
So each team can take a timeout before every single try. What
So do you get a timeout for every set of 2 pt conversions?
That'll just about do it, I think.
Smoke Monday just watches the plays happen
Wait, timeout each period? So you can watch em line up and call timeout every time?!
I would be terrified of driving anywhere in Alabama tonight
Ofc Auburn couldn't resist not covering
Didn’t want games to go to 7OT, games going to 9OTs now. Smh
Auburn asses fully clenched rn
I was having a great time, but this is bad. Not even having fun
whoever said in here that this looks like penalty kicks, 100% agree
Let’s be real, even if they stop them, Bobo is 100% running it right up the gut anyway.
Auburn fans, how fast are your hearts pumping
theres something real fucking infuriating about football teams having a 3-4 minute break between plays and then the fuck face head coach calls a timeout. like how were you not prepared? I dont like Harsin, dude seems like hes galaxies out of his league coaching in the SEC
Wait a minute, this isnt the big ten
Take the timeouts away lol. Or make it like 2 total for OT
Just give them a tie instead of this
I get limiting the overall number of plays, but the downs sequence is a pretty integral part of football.
Was 70 set?
Oh my god both teams get a timeout every single OT? There’s only 2 plays per period now!!
NFL OT is better than college OT with the new rules
Good thing about this bama getting worn out win or lose
Bryan Harsin will be damned if he doesn’t use all his timeouts
hydrate or diedrate
Getting a timeout for these mini-series is dumb
Alabama racking up style points for sure.
I propose after the 3rd overtime it’s just send the field goal unit out to kick 30 yarders until someone misses
Bring back old overtime cowards
Auburn looking scared with all the TOs
My heart can’t do this anymore
Neither can mine
They shouldn't get timeouts for 1 play drives.
When did they make the change to OT rules?
Due to OT, Wheel of Fortune postponed to 12:35am CST? My grandma is going to be pissed.
America deserves better than Gary Danielson
I don’t like our chances in a one play shootout style
The new rules are worse than the old. I assume they changed them to shorten the game but this unit swapping is make ng it longer.
Rather just see a draw than this
All you single people out there, find someone who loves you like Gary Danielson loves Alabama.
I think the state of Alabama is going to need wellness checks after this game.
When did this rule change start?!?
UGA fans trying to figure out who to root for now:[…but I don’t want to see them twice…](https://c.tenor.com/5vo_w_jDfwgAAAAC/calculation-math.gif)
Best part of this OT system? Calling timeouts so you spend more time waiting than watching.
But they didn't cut to commercial.
I wanna flip over to the Carolina-Clemson game but I can’t bear to turn the channel from this
These new rules are stupid as fuck
Game of the day right here tbh
Wtf is this?
All 2 pt conversions
This wouldn't be so bad if Auburn had a two legged QB
Do the classy thing Saban and take a knee here
Man this overtime structure is so superior to the NFL.
It just goes on indefinitely until one team scores and the other doesn’t.
Keeps going till the end of time
Goes to 4OT
More OT I believe
They go again
Do it again
Goes to more OTs
They should not have timeouts in this
Mans just gave a forehead kiss on national tv
Could the defensive team return it?
Yes? Maybe? Hasn’t happened yet.
Why not have one more OT that’s like the first two? It just feels early for this
This is such a stupid way to end games.
wow I've been living under a fucking rock working weekends. I had no idea about the 3rd ot thing. woah
Me neither I was like wtf is happening
Imagine if OT makes the 55 pt over hit
This rule was better when it was the 5th OT that's when the game is entering too long territory.
Hold on, I don’t watch much college football, what the fuck is this????
It's crappy shit new OT rules, that's what it is.
Ah yes, the new strategy in 3OT is to ice the thrower
Is this new? Tf is this OT
Started this season, after the second ot it's just one play.
Well, on this rivalry week, at least all of us can unite to say how fucking stupid the new OT rules are.
Shock the world pick 6
How is it they can change the college OT rules to make them less fun but can't change the NFL OT rules to make them less garbage and unfair?
Wait, they exclusively go for conversions now??? No TD's needed?
They should do Oklahoma drills for OT /s
This is a silly way to decide a game. As all rivalries should be
This isn't even a skill based OT rule, it is straight up luck
Some explain why the new OT rules are bad ... Don't just say "change" or "they suck"
They introduce more volatility for no reason. Football is a game of sequenced plays, and taking that away is dumb.
They have timeouts this late?
Penn State Illinois out here sweating right now
Can they kick it to get 3 points instead of going for a 2 pt conversion?
*Points to forehead*
He must be silenced.
I watched the Penn St./Illinois 9 OT. AMA.
Why take a timeout now???
I think my soul left my body at the end of regulation, and now it’s just my husk silently cheering for Alabama
Regardless of outcome, this is so stupid.
The fact they get a timeout per 2 point conversion is something else
Fuck your timeout lok
I get the idea of 2 point plays, cause you're forcing a touchdown without giving a stat
What are the new rules?
Edit* What the fuck is this hot garbage?
in the fourth overtime both teams will play a fortnite match
Moultry the Poultry
I miss old overtime rules
This new shit sucks
This is still the dumbest set of OT rules but boy is it funny
Fuck this goddamn committee if Cincy isn't 3 or higher on Tuesday
Has Auburn never lined up on Defense before?
Oh God damnit, I wish we were still watching football
Minnesota beat Wisconsin
This is going to go down as one of those Iron Bowls talked about for years
This shit is ridiculous
Stop calling timeouts auburn damn
23-13 Minnesota wins. Iowa vs Michigan for the B1G title.
These ot shootouts suck. It’s just chance now
D was mad confused
Is Auburn really going to put Finley back in on their attempt? He's so hurt.
This format change is stupid
I've gone from hoping Auburn wins (because chaos) to hoping Auburn loses (because such stupidity should not be rewarded). College football...smh
I was questioning if paying $400 to go to this was worth it
Show me the hot Auburn fan section again
this guy gets it
They start at the goal line now? Da fuk?
This is wild
NCAA: how do we ruin our game to deal with once a decade edge cases
Why is harsin so trigger happy with his timeouts lol
Would love to watch the Lsu game but I just can’t right now
Right there with you. This game has my full attention
Same with Clemson. It just has to wait.
I feel like I'm going to be sick watching this
There would genuinely be more dignity in declaring this game a tie at this point.
Change the OT rules back. That 7OT game a few years ago was incredible.
Today's game slate is just total madness
I hate these new rules. I wish at 3OT just put it at the 10. 4 downs for a score
As a neutral fan my heart can't take this, godspeed to all the Bama and Auburn fans watching
Iowa dawg lol comeon
Surprised there wasn't a second half thread for this
Glad this game is now gonna be decided by bullshit ball
I’m so fucking confused… did I miss something why is there a 2 pt conversion?
I like this OT rule I must be the only one
Watch bamas left guard he moves pre snap every single time.
He’s looking at qb for snap, then taps center to snap it as he looks forward. Many teams do this when it’s loud
After OT2 they should just go to a kick off. Each kicker kicks a 40 yarder and they move back 5 yards if both kickers make it.
Wait why did they change the OT rule?
Ad space and other broadcasts
The LSU A&M game that went to 7 OT
Probably cause that one LSU game
How far away from each other are these schools?
2.5hr drive with limited traffic
Less than 3 hours away
3 hours ish
2.5 hour drive
This game is crazy
