    Do you want to kick or receive first half?

    Just wondering what everyone's thoughts are here. Usually I would say that I want to receive first, but I really hope we kick first this game. I feel like if we can get a quick 3 and out from the ND offense, it will fire our offense up to get a touchdown.

    What do you all think? Kick or receive first?

    A long time draining power drive -- to start off the game

    let's start tiring that Defense out right away, even if it just nets a FG
    Raj: Excuse me, I can't be drinking, I'm about to make an important scientific discovery here!
    Howard:What? Galileo did his best work while drinking wine!
    Raj: How do you know that?
    Howard: He was Italian, it's a reasonable assumption.
    Raj: Dude, can you even open your mouth without saying a cultural stereotype?
    Howard: I'm sorry Galileo drank diet sprite!

    Kick, pin them deep, force a 3-out and start in great field position. IMO, both teams will elect to kick off as both have a defensive mentality. (that is, they will both defer)

    I would like to receive first, drive it down to score, and get a big jump on them like A&M did to us. I don't think they can play catch-up real well.

    I'm not so sure. We have elected to receive most of this season IIRC.

    Kick off first half. Put immediate pressure on their RS freshman QB to start the game. A no brainer.

    Didn't know that. Did you win the toss against LSU? IMO, they are the only other team that Alabama has played (up to this point) that would have warranted the "defer & kick" approach because of their defense.

    Kick off.

    Seems to be the most effective strategy in previous games.

    Roll Tide - GO "D".

    I would always "prefer to defer".

    I want to say we won and received, but I admit that I have a hard time remembering smaller details like that, so I could be wrong.

    LSU started the game with the ball, but I do not remember if they won or lost the toss.
