ok, here's the background, then i get to the question i will pose.

Saturday night StegDutchie, a PSU fan and student, was chatting with me and we were bitching about how the refs gave Iowa the game in OT

sunday night we were chatting while we were watching the sunday night game, and we were talking about overtime

With all the recent games that have gone into OT, like the Pats? i think have played 3 already, or was that Buffalo, should the League go to a NCAA style?

I don't like the Sudden Death aspect of it. kick a cheesy FG and win? i don't like it.

Dutchie doesn't like the NCAA's start at the 25 yard like aspect of theirs.

for all you who don't know, here's the NCAA rules on OT
1 possession at the opp. 25 yard line.
no game clock, but there is a play clock
lose possession and your try is over
overturn on downs your try is over
score, and the other team gets a try on your 25
if both teams try, and neither score, or tie, it goes to another OT
after 3OTs, if both teams are still tied, you must go for 2 after TD's.

we came up with a nice system for ot.
do it like the NCAA's way, but you start on your OWN 20, and have to drive up the field.

what do you all think? like the current OT, like the NCAA, like what we came up with? have something better? share.

I like the NFL system that there is now. But if you are to go to the NCAA system I would still make each team kick off. That way you still have the kicking game aspect of football.

I like the NCAA style. Starting at the opposition 25 gives both sides of the ball an equal chance to shine.

Neither system works very well, although I prefer NFL style to college. The problem with your idea is that it would probably make for some loooooong games, especially if we're talking about defensive teams.

I think that they should do away with the coin toss, and use the xfl rule where two players run towards the ball at midfield.

I'm biased, but I love the CFL "Shootout" method of handling overtime.

There's a coin toss to select offense/defense/direction. Then the team on offense scrimmages the ball at their opponent's 35. Game play is as normal, first downs or score. When the team is stopped/scores, the other offense takes over. Should the second offense score more points on their trip down the field, they win. Should they equal the output, they'll do this a second time, and the game will end in a tie should the points be equalled again.

And it was the Bills that have had three overtime games so far this season. Jets (L), Vikings (W) and Bears (W).

You don't watch college football much, eh? If I'm understanding you correctly, the overtime method you described is almost exactly like college football, with the following variations:
1. Teams start at their opponents 25.
2. There are no ties. They keep going over and over and over and over and over until one time finally scores more points on their drive than the other time scores.

Good guess. I haven't watched college football with any sort of frequency in years, beyond a peculiar addiction that sees me addicted to watching some of the more obscure bowl games. I'd much rather watch the Humanitarian Bowl than the Rose Bowl, and I don't think that makes me a bad person.

That's an interesting idea, but I don't think the NCAA would ever go for it. If you got 2 good defensive teams in one game, you could be playing for a really long time and I think they'd frown upon that (proof being them changing to the "Must go for 2 after 3OT's" after year 1).
