Have you ever been frustrated by the AP and Coaches Polls? Have you ever felt like the major polls have overrated certain teams (cough...cough...Southern Cal)? Maybe you’ve felt like the polls have underrated a team which deserved to be ranked higher.
Of course, we here at Bruins Nation understand that. We’ve felt that pain, too.
After all, we are considered the voice of the UCLA community here at Bruins Nation, and we talk every day about how the Bruins are doing — whether they will win their upcoming game or how readers feel about that awful call from the refs.
Now, 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 Bruin fans.
If you sign up, you will be among a vetted group from Bruins Nation who answers a weekly survey of Bruin 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 Bruin fans. This is something that should take, at most, just 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 Southern Cal is overrated or they’re not giving the UCLA Bruins enough credit in the AP Poll week to week.
The results of each poll will be published by Bruins Nation (that’s us!) 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!):
So, be sure to sign up for SB Nation Fan Pulse today and have your voice heard!
