    While I didn't like it at first, I'm coming around to liking the UIL OT. Each team gets one possession from the 25. If they are still tied, the subsequent OTs are one play from the three yard line.

    That sounds exciting. Especially the one play from the 3 yd line part. I just think each team should have the same opportunity to win.

    The one play each from the 3 makes a lot of sense since it doesn't matter whether you go first or second - your only two options are either score or don't score. The possessions from the 25, where scoring 0, 3, 6, 7, or 8 are all possibilities, gives too big of an advantage to the team that goes second and knows how many points they need.
