The current system used in college, he feels, represents too much of a change in the basic strategies of the game.
''It's so restrictive, whether you've got the ball first or you've got to go get a touchdown or you've got to play for a field goal,'' Fulmer said. ''It's not as real as playing first-one-to-score.''
Still, Fulmer isn't ready to lead a movement to adopt a sudden-death system in the college game.
''I don't have a big problem with it,'' he said of the existing system, ''but it did extend things a bit.''
