OOC scheduling has been a well debated topic here in the past, but after this past weekend, i think it could be rehashed again.

what are the benefits of a tough OOC schedule?  who reaps these benefits?  are these games worth it?

UF always is targeted for a weak OOC schedule, and rightfully so.  the prevailing point is why?  the SEC usually is well stocked with ranked teams so there isnt really a need for a strong OOC schedule.  its great for the fans, but does it help/hamper the program and its quest for championships?

FSU and miami both scheduled amazing games this weekend, and both came up on the short end of the stick.  both games were great for CFB fans...but did they games do anything for their respective programs?  Okla/OSU both came out smelling like roses so was it worth it for them?  did they need the game?

Too much of a deal is put on OOC scheduling.  The overall strength of schedule is the most important thing to look at, not at 4 OOC games.  For those 4 OOC games, it will reflect on the team's overall SOS if they schedule weak or strong opponents.  It's all factored in to the overall SOS, so it's a moot point.

With the way the ACC has started out, UM and FSU could use any bump at all to their SOS consdiering they don't have the built in perception the SEC has of being a strong conference... Plus, they did it for the fans, not like those selfish bastards at UF.   :silly:    Those kind of games are entertaining for us ...
