You've got to bear those teams you bring in nobody cares about consistently. And the only teams we beat consistently OOC are FCS teams. I think it is more important to have later season OOC games against big brand schools. You don't have to win but you need try be within 10 points going into the 4th quarter to get positive feedback from media and unaffiliated fans
It’s amazing how much better scheduling has gotten under Wren Baker. RV’s lazy ass didn’t even try in OOC scheduling to get us anyone worth watching beyond SMU and Army. Hell, in two separate years, we had one OOC game in Apogee and it was a FCS game, which included the worst loss in modern college football history to Portland State by 59 points.
Wren recognized there was an easy way to fix this and did so…he’s an amazing breath of fresh air compared to anyone we have ever had in the AD position.
