Final 3OT

Another so-called impossible, miracle comeback that is so impossible that it happens every week, lol.

In February, the super bowl, last week UCLA, now Wazzoo. Football's current rules make this to be expected, not a miracle.

Heck, in all three games, the comeback team didn't even need to attempt an onside kick! In the old days, if you were down 10+ points in the 4th quarter, it was a given that if you were to somehow win or tie, you would need to convert an onside kick. But neither the Patriots, UCLA, or Wazzoo even needed to try one, all either tied or took the lead with over a minute left in regulation.

Nothing to see here, really.

what's the new rule which makes these comebacks more likely?

I don't think it's any one rule. Heck, we almost saw it again last night. With just 10 minutes to go, the Broncos led the Chargers by 17 points. The game ended with the Chargers missing a very makeable FG, 43 yards, that would have tied it. Heck, he actually did make it, but the Broncs called one of those last second TOs and it didn't count. The next one was blocked. A 17 point lead erased in less than 10 minutes.

It's just the nature of the game these days.

Huh? 03-lmfao
