If Carolina had played ND's schedule with exactly the same results for all games would we have been number one?
I don't think that it has anything to do with why ND was number 1.
The whole "voting process" is very flawed. It is not about voting who the best team is, it is about moving teams up and down depending on if they win or lose. Often those things are very closely related, but in the case of some teams it is not.
Teams like ND and FSU for example. They play easy schedules, and in the case of FSU, they are playing in probably the worst fotball conference that there is. If either of those teams had gone undefeated and there were no other teams undefeated, pollsters would have moved them up throughout the season as son as another team in front of them would have lost.
It should never be about who is undefeated, it should be who is the better team which is why I personally think that SOS should play a huge role in the rankings.
A team that only lost to TA&M in a close game should not be ranked lower than a team that have played an easier schedule and is undefeated. IMO, that is what the big flaw is with this system. Not the bowls, not the lack of playoffs etc.

if we were the only undefeated team then yes
Can't agree. Would have been just like Auburn being denied the chance to play for the natl title. Strength of schedule.
Notre Dame was a fraud they had lady luck on there side during the regular season but got exposed as a punch line last night.
You can't see! I can't see! All that matters is can the f*&%ing horse see! That's a raid!
There were two other eligible undefeateds that year.
If you are arguing that an undefeated team with a top 30 schedule should have been passed over for two one loss teams despite being #1 in every poll and computer raring and in the Bcs formula by rule used for determining the participants, then you are advocating for complete chaos and arbitrary systems, IMO. And such a system would be much more likely to screw USC than what is in place now. IMO.
Can't agree. Auburn was one of 3 undefeated teams that year from BCS conferences. That is the one and only time a BCS conference team was left out as an undefeated. There is zero precedent of an undefeated BCS rep team being left out in favor of a one loss team. It's not a product of Notre dame hype, its a product of them running the table.
