Tired of the same old LSU narrative? Sign up for Fan Pulse.

Let the rest of the country know how we feel about the Tigers

NCAA Football: Fiesta Bowl-Louisiana State vs Central Florida Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

You’ve heard the same jokes about the LSU offense for damn near a decade now. Nationally, people look at LSU from a glance and make assumptions based on past results alone. I’ve grown tired of it and I know you probably have too.

Well, if you ever wanted to change The Discourse, here is your chance!

We (the royal we, SB Nation) 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, smartest, and only the most attractive Bayou Bengal fans (that’s you, reader).

If that describes you, then SIGN UP HERE to join us on SB Nation FanPulse.

If you sign up, you will be among a vetted group from ATVS who answers a weekly survey of Tiger 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 LSU fans (again, that’s 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.

The results of each poll will be published by ATVS (that’s us!) and may end up on the mothership 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!):

You see, If I, a neutral non-observer of the LOINS, were to give a confidence number if the Detroit football club, it would never soar above 25%. But because of this, we get a nifty breakdown of where exactly things went wrong for the Lions, the moment you could see their heart break. Conversely, we can see the point that came just before where they were near fully confident in their team.
