Daily Poll: Should UCF sacrifice for better power 5 competition?

Should UCF sell their souls and their wallet size for Power 5 star power? That's essentially what USF has done with their latest Florida deal. 

Bianchi wrote about this @ OrlandoSentinel.com and here's the point he made on the issue: 

With all due respect to USF, the Bulls have essentially given the Gators three home games. The two schools will start the series in 2022 at the Swamp in Gainesville and then will play 2023 in Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium and again in Gainesville in 2025. On paper, it’s a two-for-one in favor of the Gators, but in reality it’s three-for-none in favor of the Gators.

Here's how UCF AD Danny White feels about the issue: 

“Our scheduling philosophy is to schedule two non-conference Power 6 opponents each year — home and away,” UCFs White said. “We feel that, for our set of circumstances, is the best way to build our program and season-ticket base — which is critical to sustaining our program long term.”

Do you think it's worth it, in the long run, for UCF to schedule home-and-home's with team's that want a neutral site game or a larger percentage of the stadium?
