Ohio State’s College Football Playoff chances took what most people saw as a fatal blow last week when the Buckeyes were embarrassed, 55-24, at Iowa.
Brady Quinn isn’t giving up on the Buckeyes, though. During Ohio State’s game against Michigan State on Saturday, Quinn — who was calling the game for FOX — said he thought it would still be tough to keep 2-loss Ohio State out of the playoff if the team runs the table, wins the Big Ten and goes 11-2.
I believe Brady Quinn just said it would be hard to keep a two-loss Ohio State team out of the playoff. It actually won't be hard at all unless all hell breaks loose.

As pointed out by Pat Forde, a 2-loss Ohio State team making the playoff would actually be a large surprise. The Buckeyes would need tons of help to make the Final 4. As of Saturday morning, FiveThirtyEight listed Ohio State’s College Football Playoff chances at 17 percent.
Urban Meyer’s team was handling its business on Saturday, at least. The Buckeyes were pounding Michigan State in a game that will give them a clear path to the Big Ten East title. Ohio State will still need to beat Illinois and Michigan in the last 2 weeks of the regular season before a likely meeting with Wisconsin in the Big Ten title game.
