    True, but if we maintain the caliber of recruiting and coaching we currently have enjoyed the last year and moving into this year... there's no reason to think that we wouldn't be capable of owning that schedule.

    Top notch coaching, top notch recruiting, and having schedules settling in to be easily among the 20-25 toughest in the nation every year...

    :thumb: Such an exciting time to be a Buckeye!!

    I love the upcoming games! If we go undefeated or lose 1 game I would love to hear the excuses from the media why we wouldn't belong in the championship game.

    I'll believe it when it happens I fully expect our four games vs sec to.be combined to 2 neutral 1 off games. Especially if there is expansion or requirements to play 9 conference games

    I think by that time we may see a completely different college football. If it’s going to become even bigger and more profitable than it currently is, expand to four 16 team conferences, with the winners of each conference a guaranteed spot in the playoff. Take away the guessing. Only use the polls to seed the teams.

    So what I think we see in the future, teams will schedule tougher OOC games because it does a few things.

    1. It strengthens your overall brand with more viewers
    2. It will help prepare you for the tougher games at the end of the season
    3. Recruiting. You have more high profile games to get recruits to.

    I’m sure there are many other benefits. But I just don’t see where that model doesn’t seem appealing. You could literally go 0-3 in non-conference and still get into the playoff. So schedule as many high profile games as possible!

    I agree with most of your points. I just do not see how the current playoff system is sustainable unless they include all power 5 conference champions and 1-3 wildcard spots.

    You may be right but my gut says the Bama series will happen.

    Yeah....especially after reading that each team receives $1 million to play the game, but if either team cancels a game it would cost them $3 million.

    This is an exciting match up to look forward to.

    But honestly, we will be playing them sooner than 2027.
