    the coin toss. Receive or defer. I vote defer. Overall this season the results have been better when we start the second half with the ball.

    I always prefer to defer, regardless of which game/opponent.

    Tomorrow's game will be decided on the lines, and which team is more physical for four quarters.

    You never elect to kickoff...because then in the 2nd half the other team still gets their choice and they will elect to receive. Something like this happened to us one year when the other team won the toss and deferred to us and our inexperienced captain said "we'll kick off" thinking that meant the y would get the ball in the 2nd half. Guess what happened?

    If you win the coin toss, you should almost always defer. That first possession of the second half is more valuable.

    With the exception of the first 2 games against cupcakes we have been starting slow. For the most part under Coach Helton we've been able to make second half adjustments. If the coin toss goes our way electing to receive the ball to begin the second half is the best move.

    On one hand I like to defer, however, the thought of the bRuins running the ball down our throats on the first drive greatly concerns me. On the other hand, an electric td return from Adore would set the the Coli on fire. I would greatly appreciate that outcome.

    So, let's receive.

    Given the fact that UCLA has jumped out to huge leads in the last couple of games, I'd say receive if USC wins the toss - get the ball, get on the board and play from ahead in this game if you have the chance to.
