I'd rather have a shot at 14-0, 13-1, a big bowl, ranking. Build the brand. Who wants 8-5

Uhm, your brand was being built when you were beating P5 schools. You think OOO vs. the likes of of Presbyterian, MTSU, UNLV and Idaho gets you to "big bowl?" You think you get exposure, tv with teams like that? Please. You want attention, you want recognition in NP5 you have to go out and beat them.

Oh, and BTW, there is this green thing called money that athletic programs need. Like a few 100k+ for going to play on the road. I mean the Sunbelt has even figured that out.

Win the west and develop a qb. Thats 1 and 1A. I think 2019 is the year this group peaks and can maybe think top 25 by winning those OOC vs Utah, Nebraska and Vandy.

Who gives a **** about winning the worst conference in college football.

Every team in the MAC. Most of those teams fans.

Feels like a waste if we have a crap ooc record

Exactly, and nobody here could tell me who played in the sun belt or conference USA championship last year because nobody cares, but they will remember Troy beating LSU and of course NIU beating Nebraska.

Exactly.

Two 3rds of all FBS football teams, who did worse than 8-5.

We'll be stuck in the MAC with 8-5

And where was NIU supposed to be going?

And I love the assumption that every "cupcake" you schedule is win. Like WIU? If NIU scheduled CFU after they didn't win a game and lost to them this year would that be bad scheduling?. And when NIU scheduled Nebraska I am sure they weren't considered a cupcake.

No casual fan will remember we lost to CMU but will remember we beat Nebraska.
NIU needs as many casual fans as we can get.

Utah went 6-6 this year, and we got em at home.
BYU was baaad this year.
FSU 6-6 this year and undergoing a coaching change. Still a lot of talent, but who knows.
@Iowa is the really tough one, even if they have no offense.
3-1 wouldn't surprise me, and would probably make Huskies leaders for Access Bowl going into conference.

While you claim "3-1 wouldn't surprise me," what are you really expecting?
Because pre-season magazines won't be afraid to predict the Huskies going 0-4, 1-3 at best.

+100 give me OOC victories or bowl wins vs P5 anyday over a MACC.

Who gives a **** about winning the worst conference in college football. We need more. It was working until the last few years. Can't bite off more than we can chew

So you don’t care about winning the MAC and don’t care about challenging ourselves OOC.

May as well cancel the program. No ambition.

How was basketball equivalent Butler built? The biggest conference jump (Horizon to Big East) in college sports this century?

Through OOC scheduling. Did you know the second year Butler played in the National Title game - they started 5-5 in the Horizon? No one remembers that. Everyone remembers that Butler beat 4 P5’s in Nov/Dec before doing it all over again in March.
