    Receive--the aggressor sets the tone.

    I honestly couldn't care less as IMO, the coin toss is basically meaningless as to the outcome of the game. Unless there is a weather reason, it doesn't matter.

    Their QB will be up all night tonight....and by the time the game rolls around he might wish he were wearing depends...Kick the ball and let it all hang out D. The media has talked so much about their defense show them who really had the number 1 DEFENSE in the nation.

    In a game like this, I like our O to have the ball first to shake out the jitters. Start beating on their D early and often.

    Do you want to kick or receive first half?

    Bama tends to receive when winning the toss. I'd expect the same tomorrow night.

    In the best case scenario, we receive and put together a good scoring drive while Golson watches. I want him to realize the entire game is on his shoulders the moment he takes his first snap.

    I would rather receive drive down the field punch em in the mouth and show them they're not all everybody puts them out to be.

    Re: Do you want to kick or receive first half?

    I would like to see the "D" on the field first. We can bend a little then force a punt.
    THEN let OUR "O" on the field and watch the fireworks start. PLUS we get the ball first in the second half. THEN we show ND who the real national champions SHOULD be!!!

    Alabama is 2- and 3-deep all over the place with full grown, meaner-than-he!! men. It's almost not fair making college kids play against them. Any Saban-coached team is going to be deep as he!! with recruits that have elite size, strength and experience at their position and they are going to play with incredible physicality.

    Take the ball and set the tone early. Plus, it gives us a chance to gain field position in the 2nd half when field position becomes more of an issue.

    Re: Do you want to kick or receive first half?

    If we kicked off out of the end zone a lot I'd say defer. But I don't want to see us do a short kick-off and them run it back to the 35-40 to open the game. They would immediately be in charge of the field position battle. For that reason...I say take the ball.

    What do you all think? Kick or receive first?
    Hard to say Hmmmmmmm........If we get ball first & Notre Dame stop us on our first set of downs will set momentum for Notre Dame for sure...All month the Media talk about Notre Dame this & that as I see they want them to win. I call this mind set which I am sure Notre Dame will come in strongly with nothing to lose & undefeated so it's all on there side. I say we kick to the them first.
