I have Mike & Mike on in the background, and they've been debating about CFB overtime for a while, and I wondered what other people thought.
 
I like the concept they already have, but I'd tweak it slightly.  I'd keep it the same, where both teams get a chance to score, but I'd have them start at midfield rather than the 25.  It forces both teams to actually move the ball a little to get into field goal range rather than starting them off with a fairly easy scoring opportunity.
 
Maybe force teams to go for two immediately as well.  I don't know.

I'm stauntchly against extra points in football period, so I'd be fine with having to go for two in OT immediately

I agree everything said above. Just push the field position back to like the 40 or 50

I'm fine with it the way it is. In theory I think midfield would work better, until you get a game when neither team can score.

Just be thankful we have this instead of the NFL version
