NCAA Football: Michigan at Penn State Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

The latest batch of SB Nation FanPulse results are in after counting up your ballots from over the weekend on both this week’s top 25 and also your confidence in where the program is heading. It’s as easy as signing up here, and bang, the survey will come to you each week and you get to represent Maize n Brew and the Michigan community in the only weekly college football poll that now matters (editorializing here, admittedly).

Here’s your updated top 25 after compiling the votes and ballots from SB Nation’s college team sites.

Ours, of course, is always a little bit different based on your responses. Here is the ballot that was sent in representing Maize n Brew from your feedback to the survey.
