That would be great to add these two powerhouse teams to the future schedules.
What other teams should we look at? Oregon? Florida? Oklahoma?
we should ask Earle Bruce ..... seriously
he'll remind us how much tougher his non-conference schedules were during his reign.... as he occasionally has over last decade during
various radio segments.
Why OSU bought into scheduling Ohio MAC teams and for the love of god .... Youngstown State. I get it ...money stays in state --etc etc
Home games ...blah blah blah.
Balance is the key.
They just played USC. Oklahoma is already on the schedule.
I would like some SEC schools.... But, I doubt that will happen with the upper tier schools. We are going to be giving the country fits for years.... No big schools will want to schedule a LOSS.... Urban is only going to make us better day by day....

Criteria for the choices?
If I was AD and working closely with Football Minds at our University - I'd have the vision to put the priority on
A) Recruiting advantages (Travel to recruiting hotbeds).... Think Southeast, Texas, or California. Do not think Notre Dame, Boise, or Oregon.
B) Tradition Rich Powers - Good to Great Venues. ... with recruiting advantages. In this case - I'd schedule a team like Washington because it
is a great venue and will touch base with the West Coast. Oregon - no. Tough place to play - out in the middle of no where - with a state that has shitty high school football.
C) Stay away from Opening classics - etc etc. Good AD working closely with his football minds would and should obviously be smart with
the scheduling .... These Neutral site games are only good for post season. We can schedule all BCS foes without having every game
be murders row. I know its hard to tell when scheduling for future ... but they can get it pretty close. It looks better playing an historic cupcake for
the ACC or BIG12 than a MAC team or Sunbelt power ...
***** D) -- SEll TIME FRAME FOR GAMES
I know this can't be done at time of agreement but OSU and B10 needs to think about opening up to possibility of Thursday or Friday evening games ... and to make bigger push for late afternoon games and evening games. OSU could easily do this by just maximizes bye week
around .... lets say a Thursday night game with South Carolina?
Great post and i agree with your philosphy on scheduling teams that boost recruiting in hotbeds for OSU.
Why in the world would we schedule ALABAMA,OREGON,OKLAHOMA? That early in the season when your, just getting your legs under you.Yea that's a great IDEA! Remember Teams most of the time aren't the same at the beginning of a season then they are at the end,when you might be more ready for a championship caliber team.Be careful what you wish For.There goes your national championships!
The brave don't live long but Cowards don't live at All!
I'd rather beat them in a bowl game. #nextyear
