You can't condem a team for having a weak schedule. a lot of that is out of their control.
If Bama or FSU lose a single game, (Even their Conference Title Game),
an undefeated Ohio St is 'IN' the SHIP Game. No if's, and's or but's about it.
Assuming of course Ohio St can win in 'The Big House' v/Michigan
and then in Lucas Oil against Mich St.
That's no easy task.
That has been my point over conjecture and emotion. No excuses.
OSU may or may not end up # 3, or worse. We'll see.
