Shall we play a game?


I’m officially taking a temperature reading with this post.  We had less than two dozen folks participate in last year’s Mumme Poll, and, frankly, it’s not worth the trouble to run it for that few number.

And given that I satisfied myself a few years ago that approval voting was a less biased way to rank college football teams, the only reason Tidefan and I keep the Mumme Poll going is for the sheer enjoyment of participating.  So, unless there’s sufficient interest in keeping the MP in play, I intend to shutter it for good.

Let me know in the comments if any of you are still interested in casting ballots.

    The only winning move is not to play.

    I’ve never played, but I actually signed up a month or so ago and was looking forward to it. =/


  3. MGW

    never knew I could cast one. Yes


  4. Dawg in Austin

    Didn’t realize so few of us were voting. I’m still in if you do one.


  5. Kirby Smart Googling

    Signed up today solely to keep this going.


  6. ChiliDawg

    I have voted faithfully for a couple of years now and will continue to do so.



    I always liked it….

    I’ll definitely cast a ballot if it means that post will still occur every week.


  9. Calling The Dawgs

    I’m interested again this year


  10. Dan

    i’m in this year.

    I loved the idea and wanted to participate more… however I don’t follow enough of the other teams to have a well informed opinion.

    If you don’t run the poll again this year, I would still like it if you posted what your poll votes would have been.

      I am witch Chris. I don’t watch enough non-Georgia or non-SEC games anymore to have a well informed opinion on a national scale.

      I do enjoy the Mumme Poll posts though. Even if it is shuttered, it would be nice to have a weekly post where those who are interest can post their lists. Everyone can still get a feel for what others think even if no one does an official calculation.

    Thermal nuclear war? You’re on.


  13. ugadawgguy

    I was one of those two dozen; I’d participate again. But knowing that interest was apparently that low, I’d understand if you shut it down.


  14. A10Penny

    I’m in


  15. Hodgie

    Can someone post a link to sign up?


  16. DawgDaddy

    Where do you sign up? I think I was in last year but never saved the link so I missed more than I played. I will try it again and save the link this time.

    What’s your criteria for voter eligibility? Because I’m more than happy to assign numbers to teams I don’t know much about beyond a couple of blog posts.


  18. AusDawg85

    I’m only in if you keep the ability to ridicule other’s picks. Otherwise, it’s kind of boring. 😉


  19. The Lone Stranger

    I’ll lob opinions on it this season. It’s an efficient way to keep a gauge on the Miami / UGa nexus.


  20. Macallanlover

    In if you have the energy and there is enough interest.


  21. 92 grad

    I will sign up or see if I am still signed up, I seem to remember having difficulty with the host and giving up. Like others, it’s perfectly understandable if you feel that you’d rather not mess with it and I do hope you at least remain public with your ballot and snarky opinions. The sb nation tsk power poll seems to rely heavily on your wit.


  22. wheninrome

    I’m in if you decide to keep it going


  23. Athens Dog

    Put in my picks. Let’s go


  24. If you and TideFan keep the poll, I’ll vote (or have my administrative assistant vote for me).


  25. Hobnail_Boot

    I’ve been awaiting this post. I’m in.


  26. Wolfman

    Still time to say yes I’d play?


  27. watcher16

    I’m still in to go again this year


  28. ACFritze

    Still very interested.
