    Further evidence that we need a football playoff with conference champions plus at-large bids based on RPI & non-conference SOS.

    We need to schedule teams like, oh, Sacramento St., in order to enhance our chance to win a national championship. Must stay away from the Colorado States of the world.

    Or we could go back to the old bowl system and run a 4-team playoff with the winners.

    How would that address a team scheduling lightly to position itself for the end?

    Because your non conference losses do not matter.... However.... A team could elect to play 3 weak games to "rest" I guess..... But I would think most teams would want a huge challenge if it won't hurt them.

    if i am recruiting against Gundy in Texas i see him backing out of two basic almost home games in Dallas.

    weak sauce. i sort of like Gundy and love his O...but this is chicken sh#t. i agree.

    Because if you win your conference, you're still in. Some teams might view a tough non-conference schedule as a good way to prepare for the conference games.

    Gundy is a fool. McCartney scheduled tough, and it won us a national championship. While I think we should be creampuff U right now until the ship is righted, OSU should definitely schedule aggressively in the non conference.
