I did not know this is a thing.
The SEC Country approval rating poll is designed to give an indication of fan happiness over a period of time.
Our formula is based on the percentage of respondents who select each answer. We multiply that percentage by the following factors: 1 (strongly approve), 0.67 (approve), 0.33 (disapprove) and 0.0 (strongly disapprove). In other words, if 50 percent of respondents select “strongly approve” and 50 percent select “approve,” the formula would be (50 x 1) + (50 x 0.67) = 83.5% approval rating.
They’re into their fourth month with this. With a 77.7 fan approval rating, Kirby Smart sits firmly in ninth place. Maybe that’s whom McGarity was referring to with his plea for unity.
What I’d really like to know about, though, is what the ‘Bama fans holding Nick Saban back from a perfect score are disappointed.
Too bad there isn’t an AD poll.
