A couple of points.
First, if ND was dominating teams, they would have a very good chance of beating out KState and/or Oregon for a BCSCG spot. The fact is, they have have had some pretty ugly performances relatively speaking. So it's not just the "computers and pollsters" fault, people can see that ND hasn't really played at the same level as Oregon and KState thus far.
Second, why would a coach even go there when there are still games left to be played? Answering hypotheticals that assume you win the rest of your games are things fans do. Coaches say GTFO with that question - we have to play Wake Forest this weekend and if get by that we have to play USC next week.
