Do we want the ball first or to start the third? I feel we are comfortable with first possession. What u all think? I think the trend has been to defer but I'm not 100% on that.
Combat Search and Rescue.... "that others may live".
Took ball both years.
Take put up 6 and roll
Take the ball.
I like the though with goulson with the ball first, shitting himself, punting, Bama scores and leads 17-0 at the half, get the ball to begin the 3rd qtr and don't throw a pass or punt the rest of the game!
Hey, if it worked.....
We would probably normally take the ball, but I think we should defer. First snap needs to be from Golson who will have stage fright the first series. We get an easy 3-and-out and the ball with good field position and score a TD.
Add on a touchdown right before half and then get the ball back to start the 3rd quarter. I like our chances.
And I bet our D is itching to get on the field
Yep, I think defer.
Funny thing...before the defer option came into existence, everyone always wanted to win the toss. Now some people want to win the toss so they can in effect lose the toss?
Unless you have a really weak-ass offense, take the ball. Even if you don't score, if you get a couple of first downs, odds are that when you punt they will start their first possession at no better than their 20...as opposed to probably the 25 or better if you had kicked off first.
Got to defer, IMO. Put the weakest aspect to their team on the field first. Should give us a shorter field to drive against the best aspect of their team.
