You either misunderstood me or I didn't explain it well. What I meant was committee members should be able to evaluate every team's schedule based on how well (or healthy) their opponent was playing at the time. Just using TCU as an example. If you looked at the teams today, you would say the Oklahoma win was better than the Oklahoma State win, but at the time of the games Oklahoma had not gotten their act together, and the Cowboys were healthier and on a roll. Using the same thought process, Ohio State's win over a disorganized and confused Notre Dame would be far less impressive than if USC beats them this weekend, even if it's only by 1 point.
