These type discussions are always contentious. The Stanford win is debatable (still think Taylor broke the plane). Oklahoma wasn't very good this year and USC was garbage.

Yes they should have lost to Pitt and had no business playing close with Purdue. They also played very close with Michigan and BYU/

But - ND was undefeated. In '06 Florida needed a blocked FG to beat South Carolina. In 2008 Florida lost to Ole Miss. In 2010 Auburn barely beat Miss St., Clemson took them to OT, South Carolina was a 1-score game, only beat Kentucky by 3.

You always need some luck to win a NC.
