The Alabama Crimson Tide won the coin toss just before the 2012 BCS National Championship Game, deferring to the second half. That meant booting the ball to the LSU Tigers and the country's best special teams unit, but you have to do it at some point. Well, not necessarily if you're a SEC team. But you probably do.

The kick went off without incident, unless you're the side of Morris Claiborne's head. Jordan Jefferson and Michael Ford got the starts at their respective positions, with a Rueben Randle scoot for a few yards the only positive gain of any note. Jefferson fumbled the snap on third-and-two, meaning we're absolutely on place to another low-scoring game.
The Brad Wing punt whistled over return man Marquis Maze's head, just like last time, and LSU has just taken field position control.
