You just blew my mind.
Statistical analysis has shown that you get more possessions when you kick off first (just how the game plays out I guess). Also that you are much more likely to put your defense in a real bad spot field position wise if you go 3 and out or close to it. Now, what makes you think our O would march down the field and get a touchdown?
Plus, most teams like to receive the ball to start the second half - meaning that they can either add to their lead, or cut into a deficit. As you say, though, this assumes they have an offense that can actually score.
Ordinarily, I think you're better off kicking off to begin the game. However, with this defense, I think we may be better off getting the ball first. Might as well delay that first score as long as possible.
Exactly and theres a chance that you hit P RICH deep and get a quick 7 on the board than the defense is extra pumped up, the crowd is 10 times as loud and they think theyre a stop away from a 14-0 lead.
fify. And we should just go for two every time
Also, there is no point in punting.
Xbox rules. love it.
Absolutely! Just bomb it ever 4th. Maybe a WR or slow developing play action to the FB in the flat. Always seems to work for me.
exactly. we have to receive. who knows maybe get our 1 good return for the season and just get points. even if we go 3 and out we just delay getting down 7-0. and then that next drive the offense comes out they had 1 drive to try and get in rhythm
I guess you missed this. Of course, with our offense and defense, we'd just get beat 147-21 instead of 47-7.
Yeah but did you know our punter can kick with either foot?
Deferring is the right choice. Our offense has been as bad as our defense. Probably worse.
:lol: wow, I looked it up cause I felt you were right (nttawwt)... but apparently YOU ARE WRONG!!!
Scoring Offense: #111 @ 18.78 ppg
Scoring Defense: #117 @ 38.33 ppg.
Only UNLV, New Mexico, and Kansas are worse at defense.
kind of a good point though. It's impossible to tell in the past several attrocities, but early in the season CU was making some good adjustments for the second half. Why not take the ball right away and do what you can while you are pumped up (ie. not already down) and then hope that with adjustments in the second half your defense has a better chance of stopping them.
well, we usually lose the coin toss also... so the choice is not ours anyway
We haven't kicked off first every game. I know we've deferred to the second half at least once.
