    What is the possibility of a split National Title?

    If Notre Dame loses to a 1-loss team and Ohio State finishes the regular season undefeated, what are the chances that the AP poll awards OSU the title?

    I know that they can't be ranked in the Coaches Poll, Harris Poll or the BCS rankings, but they are currently ranked 4th in the AP.

    Do you think the AP would award them a title if no other team finishes unbeaten?

    Zero chance of a split. Zero.

    Or Chris, if you prefer.

    I have been thinking about this myself, and I my gut says no. I think there is still that black cloud over tOSU, that they wouldn't award them the title.

    I simply can't see it happening. AP voters are keeping a number of teams ahead of my Buckeyes - enough to keep them from this scenario. They want to march to the beat of their own drum, but they don't want their trophy to become a complete joke by awarding a team on probation their championship.

    Oklahoma won the AP national championship in 1974 while they were on NCAA probation, so there is precedent for it. That being said, I don't think it will happen this year.

    All due respect to the AP, but this is the BCS era, and that is what will be recognized.

    Sorry - not true. For proof, look in your trophy case.

    Well put, see Auburn for an example. The frustrating part, for you too I'm sure, is the what if of the buckeyes. I would love to see them play an SEC team and get a true gauge an the Urban project.

    You just threw the AP trophies in the garbage?

    I noticed that you gave your players separate rings for the BCS and AP championships. I assume you value both. Am I wrong?
