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 and basketball 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.

  2. Ohio State
  3. Clemson
  4. Georgia (up one spot)
  5. Alabama (down one spot)

Fan confidence for the Wolverines is at its second-highest mark of the season with 88.9 percent of those polled confident in the direction of the program. The high mark came after the opening week of the season when 92.4 percent of the fanbase felt good after the Middle Tennessee game.

Basketball FanPulse is a thing now too! Early on, we are taking stock of fan confidence there and Michigan fans are currently 90 percent on board with Juwan Howard after marks of 91.6 and 85.3 after the first two weeks of the year.

For those of you not familiar with this initiative and want to get involved, and please do, you can signup for the SB Nation FanPulse poll here. The surveys will go out once all of the games have concluded and the ballot is ready to roll.
