If the committee takes Ohio St. to leapfrog over TCU, then you get the "big school bias" argument. While TCU and Baylor play in a top 5 conference, both are certainly smaller schools with less tradition in football than the other 4.
I'd go Bama/Oregon/FSU/Ohio State. Outright conference champions.
This would be my list as well.
Yes, Ohio State had a weak schedule. So does Alabama every f***ing season. FSU's wasn't exactly brutal and they barely survived each week. I'm no Ohio State fan, but yes, the outright champs should go.
If Ohio State goes, I guess I'll have to hold my nose and cheer for Oregon or Ohio State. Ugh.

Wins are wins no more matter how close or easy they are. Give FSU credit for making up playing in a weak conference by scheduling quality out of conference opponents like OK State and at the time an undefeated Notre Dame to show they are trying to play a tough schedule. If only the rest of the ACC can get the memo, and start winning again

I still think the entire season needs to be taken into account, not just how you play down the stretch. As such, I don't think Ohio State should be in the Playoff. Did they recover from their VT loss? Oh did they ever, played their asses off, especially recently. But they still lost to a team that went 6-6. They need to be held accountable for that.
