Man I ran out of downvotes quickly on this board.
I gathered that the side that doesn't like it is upset because they think we will get our teeth kicked in and it will hurt recruiting/morale/pride.
The side that likes this likes it because it gets our name out there and gives us a slim chance to, maybe win, but even more so doesn't hurt us if we lose.
Outside of the hot chick analogy - everything gets back to the hottie eventually - the best argument I've read is about how the kids feel. This is a game for the kids. For the ATHLETES. I, for one, do not want anyone on my team who wants to shy away from this level of competition. Why bother playing at the highest level of college if that is how you feel. Go play for Richmond (no offense) W&M (no offense) or SW Michigan St. of Indiana Pennsylvania. We're fans. Why the hell are we scared if they aren't? We should be excited about playing these types of teams and getting our kids the opportunity to play this level of competition.
EVERYONE - fans, to players, to administration, to recruits - knows where Virginia is at this point. No one will be surprised if we do a face plant against Oregon. Just don't do it against Duke, MD, or VPI and there is no loss of face for us or the recruits we're after. But if we win...awesome! The pot odds are good.
And remember...This is division I football! Go watch intramurals, brother! Go watch intramurals.

And that we'll be left with only 5 wins when we need 6 in order to earn a bowl bid and 15 crucial extra practices and the ability to point to tangible, qualitative progress with the program.
But there are pros and cons to both sides, obviously.
