I'll kick this off with UConn arguably being on the wrong end of the worse statistical loss in modern college football history.

It's okay, no one liked my thread.  ;D

I do want an answer to the question I posed though: What are other people's thoughts about the fumble in the end zone rule? For the life of me I can't understand why the team who fumbles should lose possession.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

I've been saying it for years.  It logically makes no sense that a fumble out of bounds at the one stays with the offensive team at the one, but a team that progresses a yard further and fumbles, gives up possession.  The rule is too punitive.

Fumbling team should keep possession out at the 20.

Why not at the yardline they fumbled at? I agree that it is a rule that doesn’t make sense. Was there an issue with people fumbling forward near the goal line before this rule?

Actually I think the rule has been in place since the beginning of football.  It just hasn't changed.  Spot of the fumble makes sense to me as well.

It's not just a college rule, it's the same in the NFL....and the concept pre-dates the invention of the forward pass where teams might have been tempted to fumble the ball forward as they were being tackled so they could recover it in the end zone. At the end of the day it's an antiquated rule that could probably be eliminated but because it is invoked so infrequently it doesn't get any attention.

I’d disagree about the infrequency, I’d bet it happens at least every other weekend or so in the NFL.

As far as CFB, really impressed with A&M under Fischer so far, that was a resilient performance on sat night. Clemson manhandled themin the first half and they were right in it.

Alternatively, Kevin Sumlin has taken one of the most exciting and dynamic players in CFB, Khalil Tate, and tried to make him a more traditional passer at Arizona and their offense has been horrific as a result. He DESTORYED defenses last year with his legs and this year he has 22 yards rushing...total. For a guy who averaged 130. I get it’s a different offense, but that’s stubbornly asinine.

Yea, make it simple. If the offensive team recovers spot it where the fumble took place if the ball advanced, or where it is if they went backwards. Gotta reward the defensive team.

Also, suck it Bucky.

Coach O is a treasure. I’ve turned into a legit LSU fan in hopes that I never have to go a Saturday afternoon without him.

The program is perpetually overrated.  They play no one, terrible division, benefit from that terrible division to sometimes remain relevant at the end of the year.  BYU did the nation a favor today. Thank you

When Bucky struggled so much last week with New Mexico (it was a 3-point game midway through the 3rd quarter) I had a feeling they were going to take a fall sooner rather than later. Can't say I'm all that surprised by this.
