Football season is creeping closer everyday, which means we’re getting closer to hollering about even more dumb stuff, like polls, and whether or not Texas Tech should be in those polls.
But what if those polls were less dumb? What if they were, in fact, good?
We are going to make good polls, the best.
Now, we at Viva the Matadors are taking part in the roll out of 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 Texas Tech fans.
If you sign up, you will be among a vetted group from Viva the Matadors that answers a weekly survey of Red Raider 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. 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.
The results of each poll will be published by Viva the Matadors and may also end up on SBNation.com, 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!):
You can also take a look at some of the things MLB is doing with it here.
Do not let the opportunity to be heard pass you by, get your guns and your opinions up today! — sign up!
