Normally I am of the type that likes to defer, but I think I would want the ball to open the game. Go ahead and get our offense on the field.
What about everyone else?
Defer. EG will be most rattled at the beginning of the game, so make him come out and do something immediately.
Obvious advantages to both. Our track record when we come out and attack first usually signifies a beat down to come. But I think I like the idea of throwing EG out there first, better.
Take the ball. What if he comes out and completes a few passes. I always like to prevent a scripted offensive drive from taking place.
I still say defer and make Golson beat you with his arm.
If Golson can start slinging the rock around, then we deserve to lose. He hasn't done it all year and we need to make him drive the entire length of the field his first possession. If he goes 3-and-out then we'll be in much better position the rest of the game and at the beginning of the 3rd quarter.
If it happens to start the fame it'll happen if we defer it. It's the biggest game of this kids life. I want him front and center for the world to see.
Eat clean. Train Hard.
The first couple of drives are almost always scripted regardless of who gets the ball first and where.
I say put their offense out there first and lets show them our defensive speed. Then we can follow it up with that brutal body blow combination called our running game.
usually like to receive but i think we should defer this game
Me too... nice 3 and out to give us good field position...
