The People's Poll
« on: October 06, 2014, 12:51:17 PM »
Hello all. I know many of you were members over at cbssports until they took down the boards. Some of you may also know I helped run The People's Poll on the college basketball board, and this year I would like to bring it back. For those of you unfamiliar with the poll, it is composed of votes from fans across the message board (usually around 30-40). The Poll comes out each week like a normal poll but it's voters are normal people, just fans of the game, which is what makes it so great, because the fans (should) be what drives all sports. I plan on creating a new website and open the voting for the preseason poll within the next few weeks. Hopefully we can return the poll to its former glory. I'll be in touch with more information soon.

Hi, Hoosierguy!

Of the many losses lamented with the demise of the cBS message boards, your People's Poll was certainly one of them.
I'm so glad to see you'll be bringing it back.
I'm going to post a link to this thread in a couple of other forums, as people around here are spread out all over the place.

Oh, and if you don't recognize my SN, I did most of my cbb posting under "ukfanfrombirth."

Thanks Hoosierguy! This is totally awesome! <in my best Jeff Spicolly voice>

I'm not sure if I'll have the time to participate, but I really hope I can manage it.

College hoop fans need my opinion. Hell, lets not kid ourselves, the whole world needs my opinion. ;)

Thanks for getting this started again, and I am very much looking forward to it.
It's kinda funny, cause Cali Cat and I were discussing you and the peoples poll just last year. Were your ears burning???

I'm very excited to bring it back! The website is very much still under construction but it's in the works. This way you all always know where to find it. Feel free to check it out. http://thepeoplespoll.weebly.com/

Hey everyone. I am going to open the voting on Friday and the website should be done by then. Submissions will be accepted until Sunday November 2nd at 12PM (this will not be when the normal rankings are due by). This gives everyone a week and half to submit their rankings and hopefully we can round up some more people. Please let everyone know on other forums!
