“You have to have games where guys can learn, rather than every game coming down to the last four, five minutes. You’ve gotta have balance.”
Ford said a couple of considerations go into scheduling:
1. RPI. How will the schedule affect OSU’s power rankings?
2. A good run of home games. “We want home games,” Ford said. “We want our fans to see this team.”
“You get 10 non-conference games,” Ford said. “You don’t need seven or eight top-15 games. You need to get three or four big games. Two or three below 100 (in the RPI). Two or three in the 200-250 range.”
Ford said he spent an hour Wednesday morning with administrative aide Joey Biggs, going over scheduling. The networks already are calling, trying to set up games. So it sounds like Ford will play a good schedule.
