Like I've said before, we all have our own methods of determining their top 10s, so I won't even try to bash yours.
My method is simple: Based on the way the season has gone so far, I place my top 10 on where I think they are on track to finish at the END of the year. So it can dramatically change from week to week. I am not a reactionary guy, I didn't even consider Colorado to be a top 10 simply based on their schedule. If they didn't have Oregon, USC, Utah etc on their schedule and instead had a CUSA slate, then they could very well be top 8 based on where I think they would have finished without a blowout loss to Oregon. FSU could win out ugly right now and probably be a top 4. Same for Texas, Michigan, Ohio State, etc. LSU right now is going to have to win some SEC games prettier than that Arkansas win to ever be considered top 10. The AP will boost them to top 10 for hype reasons with SEC media, but as a fan, they don't project there for me.
If I made my reactionary top 10 based on the current season the top 4 would look something like this:
Utah, Oregon, and Penn State peaking in. I just don't see Penn State as being a legit top 10 based off a win over Iowa at the end of the day, so they were completely left off of my poll. And to the contrary, while I don't see Oregon's win over Colorado to be a huge feat, they completely dismantled the Buffalo offense and defense. Impressive enough on a national stage that I think they project top 10 right now if they can stay on track.
