Yay, more discussion of overtime! We can never get enough of this stuff. This article from Science News says that the coin flip didn't really determine the winner in overtime until they moved kickoffs back to the 30-yard line in 1994. Since then, the team that wins the flip has won more often in overtime. Of course, we have our own idea about how to solve this.
(Thanks to Jim Armstrong for sending this in. You should also check out his updates to the Iced Foot article linked in Extra Points last week.)
