I say take the ball to start. We need an early score. We need to start with the lead. I trust our ability to hold a 7 point lead starting the second half more than I do our ability to answer a 7-0 start if Penn State starts with the ball and scores their first drive. I feel like if they start early 7-0 on us, they’re gonna take that and ride with it. I also think, like you said, you score early and you win the crowd’s interest right away.I say. take the ball and get a fast start.
That is such a key in a game like this in my opinion , score and you put pressure on them and crowd noise .
now... the Vikings/NDSU always defer to have thier loud crowd noise force a quick 3 and out
so I could see both ways. hmmm
.That is helpful. What's your winning percentage when you defer vs receive?
I, too, would like our scheme to put us up 35-0 against PSU. Make it happen Kirk CI just hope we come out passing the ball. When the Vikings had the #1 rushing defense in the NFL New England came to town and passed on every down until they were up 35-0. That is what I want to see tomorrow, pass until they back off against the run.
