thinks that eliminating the extra point would be an exciting solution instead of trying to slow down the uptempo offenses across college football.

If we want to change a rule, change the extra point rule like the NFL is considering. This would even bring more thrill and suspense to a game that is gaining in popularity every year.

How would it work? There would be no more kicking on a extra point and the team would have an option to run a play for 1 point. A touchdown would now be worth 7 points. If you elect to go for an extra point and fail, then you lose 1 point and you now have 6 points. If you successfully make the extra point attempt, you get 1 point and now have 8 points. You can also chose not to attempt and extra point and your total would remain at 7.
