75. Ooh, good one. Never thought of that, but you're right, makes more sense.
One I think is overly harsh is when the offense fumbles into the endzone and goes out of bounds, it's a touchback for the other team. What substantive difference is there between fumbling at the 1/2 yard line out of bounds on the sideline and getting the ball at that spot, or fumbling it out of bounds in the endzone? To me, not much. It should be a penalty of some sort, but loss of possession? That's way too harsh, IMO.
