I can understand the disdain for the single point in the CFL, Aikenrooster. Yet, there have been many wild finishes where teams either tried to kick a fieldgoal or punt for a single in the dying seconds of a game. It is entertaining to those hardcore CFL fans who like the game as it is and respect tradition.
That being said, what do think of two point convert attempts instead of kicking converts?
I love the 2 point option. College football has always had it, which is the football I watch. I don't watch any NFL football. Yeah, I'm old school when it comes to football. I view the game as a game of field position and defense. South Carolina was a favorite to beat Tennessee, last year, at their stadium, but, Tennessee played the perfect field position game and they beat us. Even though our defense was outstanding, they had 6 punts that landed or were not returned past our own 20 yard line, and we only returned 2 of those punts for 4 yards. We had 2 turnovers(our QB threw his only pick of the year) and, except for a few big plays, we couldn't drive the ball, and our punting was horrible. They always started around midfield.
Also, one of the great college games of all time, back in 2011, was when LSU upset Alabama, at their stadium, 9-6, in overtime, whereupon Alabama missed 4 FGs. I loved that game.
