Some people on a different sports message board opine that they prefer a soft OOC schedule, so that it's more likely their team will make the playoffs.
I like seeing the Ducks play the better teams in at least 1 OOC game each year--I think it's exciting, and I'd wager that the players would rather play the better teams too. I think they want to face the best teams and test themselves against them. I don't know exactly how recruiting goes, but I'd also bet that telling players they will get to play whatever cupcake teams does not get them excited, whereas the promise of competing with the Ohio States/Notre Dames/Auburns/etc. of the world does. Just my humble opinion.
So...do you prefer cupcakes or highly ranked teams for OOC opponents?
