Game scheduling

Recently I attended a men’s soccer game between Ohio Wesleyan and Wooster College, two of the nation’s top-20 Division III teams, in Wooster, Ohio.

Before the men’s game, the women’s teams of the same schools played on the same field, so it was possible to see both games.  Meanwhile, the Wooster football team was playing at Ohio Wesleyan.

Is there anyone who would argue with me if I suggested that this scheduling makes more sense than the system at Williams, in which men’s and women’s soccer, field hockey, tennis and football teams commonly play home on the same day, with games overlapping, and then all play away the next week?
