We at The Only Colors like to consider ourselves the voice of the Michigan State Spartans community. Yes, sometimes it’s a raspy, hungover voice, but one that is only fitting for East Lansing. We pride ourselves on being involved in every discussion among readers, and having a strong sense of the fanbase.
Now, fans can have an even bigger voice on the site. Along with SB Nation, The Only Colors is launching the SB Nation NCAA Football Top 25, where the most informed Spartan fans (and maybe some of the rest of you) get to have a voice.
After signing up, you will be among a vetted group from Michigan State who will answer a weekly survey of Spartans 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 Spartans fans. This is something that should take at most a few minutes a week of participation.
We want to build the definitive Top 25 of informed college football fans. Your votes will be anonymous — though if you join you are welcome (and encouraged) to tell anyone you’d like. You will get to have your voice heard about whether Michigan is overrated (they are0 or if “they” aren’t giving the Spartans enough credit in the AP Poll week to week (they aren’t).
The results of each poll will be published by The Only Colors and may 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!):
