Is this based on who I think would beat the others, or an eye test, or a projection of what the CFP will be, or what?

Your list looks OK to me.  I don't think UK would beat OSU on a neutral field though most of the time.

NC State is folding.

However you prefer to do it.  Mine is sort of a mixture of resume and eye test with resume getting weighted a little heavier.

Neither have the people who rank them.  At least not to any great extent.

Exhibit #983823839 of the cowardice of voters.  What are they afraid will happen if they rank a 2-loss team ahead of a 1-loss team?!?  Nuclear war?!?!

What if you were to learn that the polls have extreme variance and the published version is merely an average and half the poster do have PSU above (maybe well above) UK?

Look, here's the team's losses by ranking in the new poll:
1,2,3 - 0 losses
4,5,6,7,8 - 1 loss
9 - 0 losses (UCF - obviously discounted, yet we resume)
10-12 - 1 loss
13-16 - 2 losses
17 - 1 loss (HOU - obviously discounted)



Here it is in a list:
0,0,0,1,1,1,1,1,0(UCF), 1,1,1,2,2,2,2,1(HOU),2,3,3,...
A 5-year old could do this.  Here kid, here's the big-boy teams and how many times they've lost.  
And then here are the "others" who aren't as great.
Put them in order.
