I think this should be one of the first questions of the committee but, not surprisingly, ESPN was silent on this (for at least the parts of the selection shows that I watched; please correct me if I missed something).
Sorry I can't give you exact clips, but Jesse Palmer and Jim Mora are your guys. They've been addressing this, and, specifically to Ohio State, ever since the first rankings came out.
If I had to pick one over the other? Palmer.
