Hammer and Ralis and SB Nation are proud to announce a new feature for this season — one in which you can be an active participant.
We are starting a new polling project — including a brand new SB Nation NCAA Football Top 25 — that will pull together the insights of the most plugged-in Purdue fans.
Because you’re a Hammer and Rails reader, that clearly means YOU, and you’re going to want to participate. So SIGN UP HERE to join us on this adventure: the SB Nation FanPulse.
If you sign up, you will be among a vetted group from Hammer and Rails who answers a weekly survey of Boilermaker 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 Purdue fans. This is something that should only take a few minutes a week to complete.
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 put Clemson (my alma mater) at the top of your ballot each week and feel smart. I would say you can avoid voting for I.U., but let’s be honest, that’s going to happen on every site.
The results of each poll will be published by Hammer and 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!).
The Hammer and Rails community has never been shy about analyzing the game and making its opinion known. Let’s show everyone that Purdue enginerds can do more than...whatever it is you guys do...and provide the nation with an accurate and totally unbiased football poll.
