Sb nation has been built by the fans and run by the fans. Here at H&R, we definitely understand that, as we are regularly one of the top 5 highest traffic sites in the college network. It’s taken over 10 years to get to this point, but we thrive on being the voice of the fan.
Now, SB Nation is starting a new polling project —the SB Nation NCAA Football Top 25 — that will pull together the insights of the most plugged-in college football fans, and you can get involved along with the contributors here.
If you sign up, you will be among a vetted group from of fans who answers weekly survey of fans developed by SB Nation. The survey will start going out regularly once the season begins, and will be highlighted by a weekly Top 25 ranking by the fans. This is something that should take at most a few minutes a week to participate in.
We want to build the definitive Top 25 of informed college football fans, and that includes you. Your votes will be anonymous — though if you join, you are welcome (and encouraged!) to tell anyone you like. You’ll get to have your voice heard about whether Ohio State is overrated (though they are ducking us this year) or if Purdue finally should end its lengthy AP Top 25 drought.
The results of each poll will be published by Hammer & Rails and may end up on SBNation.com also, along with the results from other team sites.
This project was started on SB Nation’s NFL sites last season. Here’s an example of some of the results based on the confidence questions (which you’ll also get to answer!):
