Jarmond explains scheduling
Scheduling for Ohio State is very different from scheduling for BC. But there are a few lessons from this OSU piece that provide insight into how new BC AD Martin Jarmond thinks.
Jarmond tries to measure stability and predictability of opponents. But as he admits in the piece, this is somewhat difficult when you schedule games ten years out. (That's why I find BC's scheduling so cynical and dumb.) Like BC, he also tries to schedule opponents who have a geographic tie to our alumni base or recruiting needs.
Given their budgets and fanbase, scheduling for Ohio State is a bit different than what Jarmond will do at BC. I hope he continues to look for quality opponents and not just easy wins.
