Taking Ohio State out of it, no person in their right mind is going to risk millions of dollars to play on a mediocre team with the possibility of ending their career with a horrible injury or lessening their stock to NFL scouts.
Leaving Ohio State in the factor, I would not want a 9-3 Ohio State team as a 16 seed in a playoff because it was not earned.
I think you're very confused at the fact that mediocrity deserves no favors.
