We are considered the voice of the Minnesota Golden Gophers community here at The Daily Gopher, and we talk every day about how the Gophers are doing — whether they will win their upcoming game or how readers feel about that awful call from the refs.
Now, we along with all the other SB Nation College Football Blogs 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 Gophers fans.
If you sign up, you will be among a vetted group from TDG who answers weekly survey of Gophers 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 Gophers fans. This is something that should take at most a few minutes a week to participate in. You can see how the TDG fans vote in total, and how your votes effect the national SB Nation Top 25 on a weekly basis.
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 ‘Bama is overrated or they’re not giving your team enough credit in the AP Poll week to week.
The results of each poll will be published right here on The Daily Gopher and may end up on SBNation.com also, along with the results from other team sites. We will give you a look at where/whether us homers think Minnesota should be ranked along with the rest of the Top 25.
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 sign up starting today. We will probably be harassing you about this for the next few weeks as the season approaches as the more people we have participating, the better chance that it’s a good overall view of what Gophers fans really think and not just GoAUpher’s homer ass takes.
