Okay since you are playing devils advocate, do you realistically believe that NIU is the 15th best team in the country. What would their record look like if they played in the SEC or the Pac-14 ... They probably wouldn't be a bowl team if they had to play a grueling week in week out schedule. The depth just isnt there.
Yes and no. The Sagarin predictor is there to pretty much say who is better than who. The human polls on the other hand have absolutely no guidelines whatsoever.
Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken
Why would you play 3 decent OOC teams? That would be terrible. You need the 2 cupcakes on the slate to get a break from conference grind.
Also really limits your chances at a title. You play 12 good to great teams and even the best team in America could lose a game or two they shouldn't because at the end of the day, consistency out of college kids can't be expected every week.
I think your OOC should be tailored to compliment your conference slate. In the SEC, 1 top 25 team OOC suffices. You're basically cancelling out the worst team in your division and adding another upper tier team. Makes for a great schedule. In a weaker conference, play another top 30-35 team.
I blame the Big Ten and Big East for sucking so hard
If "EVERY TEAM" did this and it became standard practice their would be no advantage or disadvantage because every team is doing it.
As a Bama fan you cannot use the SEC is hard argument when your team regularly misses the best teams from the EAST. This would equal all that out in my opinion.
