Add a Cupcake to your schedule?

In playing a twelfth game, each university has no problem adding a softer known football squad to its schedule. But in doing so, the injury risk is there with the additional wear and tear. I'd instead rather see each school up their out of conference schedule. Nobody wins with the extra game except in the additional money department. We now are seeing big time programs playing all these lesser opponents like never seen before.

In the SEC, teams that reach the league championship and a bowl will play 14 games. The league has eight bowl tie-ins, which means almost two-thirds of the SEC could play at least 13 games.
I can't really complain with Gators out of conference schedule. Besides FSU, UCF and Southern Miss are no pushovers. I see why now adding Miami to schedule is not somthing you want to do every year when other schools are playing schools like Troy for their out of conference extra game.
