Something extremely unusual happened during the overtime coin toss of last night’s Packers-Cardinals game. After Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers called tails, referee Clete Blakeman tossed the coin and it landed on heads. But Blakeman noticed something strange: the coin didn’t rotate at all, it just went up then…
Managing the opening coin toss of a football game's pretty simple: if you win, defer. If you lose, take the ball. Texas somehow screwed this up tonight, and UCLA will get the ball to start both halves.
Same old Jets.
As if it weren't enough that a random coin toss essentially decides the winner in a significant majority of overtimes, now comes SCIENCE! to tell us that the flip of the coin may not be so random.
