No surprise, SB Nation voters had the wrong opinion on ranking Big Ten teams heading into the weekend.

Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NCAA. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged in Nebraska Cornhuskers fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

First up in this week’s polling was the question of whether Big Ten teams should be ranked before they have yet to play a game. A near super-majority had the wrong opinion on this. Since the question was open ended, I can get voter confusion on it being open ended. However, given it was asked during the week leading into the return of B-one-G football, it should have been taken in context of this week specifically. The answer is a resounding yes given the combination of hot garbage many teams have proven to be thus far and the high preseason rankings of many Big Ten teams. No surprise, ACC and Big XII fan bases were un-humbled by their hilariously bad on-field product thus far and chose the wrong answer.

The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers are currently 4-0 with a 38-23 win over the Kansas Jayhawks (speaking of garbage Big XII teams this season). With a game against 3-1 Georgia Southern this Saturday, fans were asked if they knew what a Chanticleer even is. I do not even remember what I voted for in this one personally (if I had to guess, “A Fancy Carolinian” mostly as a joke), but I had no clue. Well, most SB Nation voters seemed to know or cared enough to google it before answering, because the results and answer are as follows:

There you have it, a proud rooster. As for the next question, it was who fans think is the third best team in the country. The choice was of course the team that has had to wait to begin play until hosting Nebraska tomorrow:

Finally, heading into that matchup, Nebraska Cornhusker fan confidence dropped significantly from last week. After suddenly increasing last week to 90-percent from 83-percent the week prior, it has now dropped to a year’s low of 79-percent.

That’s it for this week. See you back next week!
