The Oregon Ducks take on the 503 men’s club team from Portland, Oregon in their final preseason scrimmage, before their MCLA games start. By playing a men’s team, Oregon puts themselves in a situation where they really can’t scout their opponents that much, aside from some Duck alums playing for 503.
My question is, do you think it’s better for MCLA teams to scrimmage other college club teams, men’s teams, or a mix of the two?
Is it different for every program?
What are the benefits of playing a men’s team? Are there any drawbacks? Does that hold true for a college club team? Or an NCAA squad?
