For whatever it is worth, ND is the highest ranked 1 loss team in both polls this week.

Ohio St has four games left versus ranked teams (including the conference championship). Even a 90% chance to win each of those games only gives them a 65% chance to win all four.

I do wonder if schools should replace their S&C coach every 2-3 years. It seems that a change brings a new sense of dedication and accountability to a program. It appears to be somewhat common to...

I do not know if your argument makes sense.
