SBNation: It should cost 1 point to punt.

https://www.sbnation.com/college-foo...587956/punting

Why it should cost one point to punt
Here are seven ways this would make football better.
By Ryan Nanni
Jul 19, 2018, 5:33pm EDT

Many blackjack tables have a surrender option that, without getting too detailed, allows you to fold your hand after all the cards have been dealt but before you do anything else. If you think your bad cards are likely to lose to the good card the dealerís showing, you get to keep half of what you bet while the house gets the other half.

Itís an interesting wrinkle, and one many players just avoid. Itís the equivalent of punting in blackjack, with one major difference: punting doesnít formally cost you anything.

Youíre going to say, ďhey, punting means you donít have the ball anymore, and maybe theyíre going to score on a punt return!Ē While all those things are true, those costs are still clearly not high enough to keep coaches from punting on fourth-and-short or in opponent territory or all the other times we wish they wouldnít.

I donít blame coaches for their hesitation. I blame the risk/reward calculus football has provided them, so I propose we change it by deducting one point from each team that punts, every time.

(waiting for thunderous applause to stop)

Thank you. Hereís why I think this will make football better:

1. Keep games closer.

Right now, one purpose the punt serves is to protect a lead. This doesnít eliminate that entirely, but it does compromise it. Punt on your last three possessions in the current system with a 17-point lead, and your opponent has to score every time they get the ball. Do the same thing under this new system, and now they only need two touchdowns.

Essentially, weíre making coaches really consider whether or not to punt, rather than just do it because itís the comparatively safe option.

2. Itís more balanced than you think.

In 2017, FBS teams punted a combined 8,233 times. So we have 8,000-plus points to distribute, though not evenly. Alabama and Ohio State, for instance, each had 39 more punts forced than punts themselves, which isnít that surprising, given that both had top-10 defenses in S&P+.

But it doesnít just reward teams with good defenses. Oklahoma Stateís also picking up 31 net points in this system. Thatís largely because of their offense, which only punted 41 times all year, tied for second-fewest.

On the other end of the spectrum, teams like Oregon State, Kansas, and Illinois punted at least 20 more times than their opponents did, adding to their scoring deficits. Those teams won a combined four games, so, yeah, Iím not gonna feel too guilty about that.

It feels tricky to say which games this wouldíve flipped, because coaches wouldnít have made the same decisions. But for one example, 2017 Michigan State beat Michigan by four while punting 11 times to UMís seven, so if that game had played out the same way, it wouldíve gone to overtime.

(Florida loses 10 points, and Iowa loses five, for the record.)

3. Coaches will have to go for it on fourth more often.

Take the end of regulation of last yearís Rose Bowl. An incomplete pass on third down left Oklahoma facing fourth-and-2 at their own 45 with 17 seconds to go and the game tied. In reality, they punted it away and played for overtime. Thatís not gonna work here. Every game thatís tied late now feels like overtime!

4. When coaches elect to punt, itís going to feel weightier.

Letís go to the early fourth quarter of 2017ís Miami-FSU game, when the Canes had the ball at their own 44. It was fourth-and-6, and they led 10-3. Punting still might be smart; your defense has played pretty well, and you can give Florida State a long field to march down. But if you do that, youíll put them in position to take the lead with a touchdown or tie it with two field goals.

Is that a good trade in a close game with a lot of time left to play? Letís find out!

5. Fake punts would be even more satisfying.

Take this Melvin Ingram touchdown against Georgia in 2011.



Thatís not a seven-point swing in a close game. Thatís an EIGHT-point swing. Even fakes that donít work are going to be a little more enjoyable ó you didnít punt, so you didnít lose a point!

6. It rewards defenses more tangibly.

Stopping your opponent deep in their own territory is going to be more satisfying when youíre getting a point for it AND likely winding up with good field position. Even if the offense squanders it, youíve got something positive to show for it.

Heck, coaches already feel this is the way this should work, based on the convoluted offense-vs.-defense scoring systems theyíve devised for spring games. Jim Tressel has a championship ring, and he gave his defense one point whenever they forced a punt!

7. Scores are going to get really, really funny. Remember this game?



Michigan punted four times, so letís mark them down to 74. Rutgers? SIXTEEN PUNTS AND A FINAL SCORE OF 74 TO NEGATIVE SIXTEEN HELL YES.

Dumb ****ing idea and I’ll explain why.

1 minute left in the game and the game is tied. Team X has the ball at midfield. Team X’s QB throws an interception deep down the field and the defender for Team Y is tackled at the 10 yard line. Team X has all three of their timeouts left.

On first down, Team Y gets called for holding and it is now first and 15 at the 5 yard line. The next three plays go like this: run up the middle for 3 yards, run to the outside for no gain, and incomplete pass. It is now 4th and 12 from the 8 yard line. Team Y’s choices are to go for it on 4th and 12 where there is a very low probability of converting and they essentially give Team X a chip shot field goal for the win or Team Y can punt and give Team X a one point lead and the win.

Team Y is basically punished for a great defensive play and Team X is rewarded for throwing an interception. Dumb, dumb, dumb.

Make punts like onside kicks

After 10 yards possession goes to the team that recovers the ball

Punts would be more exciting then

Give a team two free punts per game .they can choose when to use them . That way they could potentially save one for the end of the game.

You may also end up in situations where a team intentionally fumbles the ball forward on fourth and long in a tie game.
You would also have to give the defense a point for a turnover. Only way it makes sense.

If a team is trailing let them go score more points instead of adding stupidity into the game to make it more “fair.”
