It seems to me that Notre Dame is a non-starter.

They lost to Cincinnati. At best, they end up with the same amount of loses as Cincinnati. IOW, they cannot get in and Cincinnati be left out. If Cincinnati loses today, they are most assuredly not making the final 4.

Notre Dame should not even be considered at this point.
notre dame did no search for a new coach just in case chaos happens. No one can say "they don't have a coach" because they kept the same OC and DC. They covered their butts just in case. Notre Dame will get in if chaos happens. I guarantee it.

IF Baylor can get this done, it would seem to help Alabama.
Oklahoma State is being looked at as a lock to get into the playoff if ANYONE above them stumbles. Most sports talking heads seemed to forget that Okie Lite has to actually WIN their game first.

If OSU stumbles, that opens the door for Notre Dame -- or for a two-loss Alabama to stay in.

I don't even think we're losing, probably won't have to worry about it. But if you're the committee, you want to have an attractive top four. A two-loss 'Bama is way more attractive (ratings) than a two-loss Baylor, even a Baylor coming off a win. My two cents.
A 2 loss Bama is probably more attractive than a indie team like Notre Shame who gets to sit home today and not play..oh and their coach leaving for LSU.

I'm not so sure because their pedigree has taken a real hit lately and everyone has seen them get embarrassed 3 straight times in the Post Season.

Plus they have one of the weakest resumes I've ever seen for CFBP consideration.

They have beaten NOBODY and their 1 loss is to the only decent team they've faced in Cincy.

So you think if michigan loses, Cincy loses, Okie lite loses, and we lose, they don't get in?

OkieSt. wears orange. Therefore, I am for Baylor. Why are all orange teams insufferable?
Oklahoma State is “America’s Brightest Orange” according to their former NCAA hype commercial. My daughter went to grad school there. She told them, after working concessions there twice a year, during her time there, they obviously didn’t take football seriously. She is an Alabama undergrad.

If AP voters decided they would absolutely be in....

They might still be in if all that happened but I don't think it's a slam dunk despite the 11-1 record.

The committee would have a LOT of things to sort out.

But again ND has beaten NO ONE.

I do not disagree with your last statement. They did beat Wisconsin is pretty meh. Who knows what the committee will do really? I know they do not want chaos. They want everything to go mostly to plan to make their jobs easy.
