The Wizard of Odds: A Copycat Crime

The Wizard of Odds: A Copycat Crime

More complaints about the 3-2-5-e rule that keeps the clock moving in order to shorten games.

There is a link to YouTube where Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema performs a bit of "civil disobedience" that highlights the idiocy of the rule. In since imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, the North Dakota State head coach (you know, the team that played Minnesota tight and beat Ball State earlier?) did the same thing later that night.

Curious - how would you fix the rules if you wanted to short games.
