Michigan Football's Facebook Page posted a simple question:
Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down.
I went through and tallied 665 of the comments. That's not all of them, but after a while the percentages stayed the same, so I'm saying this is a SCIENTIFICALLY SOUND representation of the FB page's population. It took far too long to go through 650+ so I decided not to keep going through the now 3000 comments. Like I said, the percentages started holding pretty strong around n=300, so should be representative. I ignored trolls and unrelated posts.
|Helmets: Yes! Uniforms: No!||154||23.1%|
|Helmets: No! Uniforms: Yes!||18||2.7%|
I had other categories as well, such as "Sarcasm" and "slappy." The former of which generally disliked the jerseys, the later of which said "anything Blue wears is good" so I did not include them in the "Like" category.
Representative "Like" Comment
SWAGG! Matt finish to the helmets!! And the jersey is to fly!
Representative "Dislike" Comment
Next thing we are going to do is make a dubstep knockoff of the Victors
Representative Pro-Helmet, Anti-Jersey Comment
Helmet ok. Jersey looks horrible. Go back to the traditional jersey.
Representative "Meh" Comment
Representative Anti-Helmet, Pro-Jersey Comment
helmet looks awful and the shirt looks a little better
BONUS: Sarcasm Comment
You want a good idea? Yellow Jersey and blue numbers
Kinda fun to laugh at. I wouldn't take this too seriously, except that the M Football FB page is usually full of slappies that will "Like" anything that is posted, so I thought this was a funny enough to share.
