We are considered the voice of the Fighting Illini community here at The Champaign Room, and we talk every day about how the Illini are doing — whether they will win their upcoming game, how readers feel about that awful call from the refs, and whether or not the football team will ever bring in another recruit again...
Anyways, 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 Illini fans.
If you sign up, you will be among a vetted group from TCR who answers a weekly survey of Illini 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 you! 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 ‘Bama is overrated or they’re not giving your team enough credit in the AP Poll week to week, although that’s usually not an issue.
The results of each poll will be published by TCR (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!):
