    Take it and get the first TD.

    After that we just stay ahead of them the entire game until the whistle blows.

    Why let them score first?

    Hopefully we will get to see the coin toss,
    and not deal with inferior TV programmers like last week.

    I learned from Spurrier, ALWAYS take the ball first.

    Maybe it depends.
    Heads = shave the eyebrows.
    Tails = ... uh.

    Snip the ponytail of course.

    PS. Take the ball. They can't win if they never get a chance to take the lead.

    Take the ball, score first and we have at least one lead in the game.

    Man, I’m hoping it’s early enough in the year so the conference isn’t leaning towards a team yet. Hell, if we all know Bama is a world beater, it may be better to let us win so we can have more SEC teams into the NY6 bowl payout picture. Idk

    If it's raining, give them the ball first. When I was in high school we did that one time and I thought that was stupid until they fumbled, we scored, and they never recovered.

    give them the ball first and break some ear drums with the noise; let's pressure test the newbie qb; thwack him a few times.

    Its crazy how we used to have championship level defenses and no offense. Then last year we had championship level offense and no defense. Not sure what we have this year yet, but we should find out this weekend.

    I will shave all 9 of my chest hairs if we win. Considering it took me 51 years to get them, this is a serious bet.

    This is a great point. Combination of wet ball and Bryce Young’s small hands can lead to some fumbles. This reminds me of when we upset Tennessee 30-13 in 2002 when they fumbled 7 times in the first half with 4 by Casey Clausen.

    Defer just defer, Just to let the Defense get going and make a big stop on defense and really get the crowd fired up.

    The momentum of scoring just before half and THEN getting the ball right back is real. Kick it.

    If AR is 100%, let him ram it down their throat.

    Right. You get to kickoff the second play of the game. Like starting the game with a 7 point lead.

    If it's raining hard, defer. If not, take the ball. The more we have the crowd into the game the better. If bama gets the ball and marches down the field with ease and scores its simply deflating for the fans. Yes they will yell but the mindset is the rout is on. We score first and that energizes the crowd and keeps them in it longer.

    That's true. May only get 3 possessions per half so making it an extra one to start the game while they are still cold.
