Last night was the biggest game in 13 years for the Skins and the stadium was amped up and electric. Common sense dictates that you should let your D take the field first and let the crowd work to it's advantage, and have the benefit of receiving the ball after the half so that only a disastrous first half would put you out of the game.
In fact, they even had communication problems on the opening drive.
I'm NOT complaining, or whining, or even questioning them - I'm just curious what tempted them to make that decision when they had done the contrary on almost all other coin tosses they had won on the year.
I'm fairly certain they won last night's toss and elected to receive the ball, but correct me if I'm wrong.
Thanks. HTTR. And looking forward to attending my first Skins game next week.
