Thanks for the heads up. Off I go!
Mount St. Mary's hired a private equity CEO to be their president. You'll never guess what happened next.
Thanks for the heads up. Off I go!
Reasons to vote
1. puts money in denards pocket
2. every kid,recruit, and fan will see the winged helment an the face of Michigans program on the cover
3. Denard is a great young man on and off the field
4. Everyone is hating on Denard, OSU,MSU,SEC,and even the game creators look at these comments
Nobody knows nor cares who swope is.
What's the problem with the link?
Here's the link to the Page: https://www.facebook.com/easportsncaafootball & you can scroll down for the question.
Are you logged into Facebook?
I could see manziel(not eligible) but swope isnt the face of Texas a&m. Denard is a great human and terrific athlete. Show your love by voting for him!!
Against the world!
Go Blue. Go vote!
We are Michigan!
Nothing says college football like Ryan Swope.
Okay okay we're assembled. Jeez. We heard you the first time.
I was face rolling in exuberant glee and posted twice
Count me in with votes from myself, girlfriend, girlfriends mom, and both dog's profiles.
If Browns fans managed to get Peyton Hillis on the cover of Madden, Michigan fans should be able to get Denard on the cover of NCAA 14. Do your civic duty - get out and vote!
because nobody wanted their own team's player on the cover so they voted for Hillis?
That was more a result of Peyton Hillis being from Arkansas. These people love them some Hogs and that's where the main voting came from I believe.
I still think that Hillis was voted onto the cover because he somehow stood out from the rest of NFL RBs...
Someone needs to reach out to the UT community. There is no way the coalition of Michigan/B1G/Texas loses this thing.
Plus, you gotta figure half of SEC fans don't even have internet connection in their double-wides.
Denard has the support of Big-10 nation.
You can eliminate any support from ohio and little brother. Also likely Nebraska and Wisconsin. So we may get sympathy votes from Northwestern, Iowa, Minnesota, Penn State, and Purdue. And Illinois and Indiana don't have football fans. And I don't think Maryland and Rutgers are committed to the Big-10 way of life yet.
So it's Michigan + NW, Iowa, Minn, PSU, and Purdue.
At least that's how I see it.
But I did forget that all of Texas (minus A&M fans) will be voting against them.
Nate Silver? That you?
9K to 6.5K in Denards favor! Go Blue!
Looks like I might be buying this game after all.
With Mgoblog on our side, there's no way I can see us losing one of these votes.
Not losing anymore. He was up about 3k votes, when I voted.
C'Mon MGoPeople!!! Denard gave us years of glory, the least we can do is give him the cover over some WR NOBODY outside of Dixieland has ever heard of. MUST....WIIIINNNN....
Who the hell is Ryan Swope?
An aTm football player that's so unknown, he takes classes on campus.
did most people in the college football world even know who this guy was before the voting came out, or even care for that matter?
When does the voting end?
Let's make decoy accounts and just vote from there.
he is only up 2,000 now
gonna need 70000 votes at least to win this
Sunday or monday
Does anyone have good contacts with ShaggyBevo and other Texas blogs? TigerDroppings? Any Arkansas blogs? They'll all be very happy to help lead a charge against Swope and TAMU.
Denard deserves great things in life. Honor him!
Oh God, don't read the facebook comments!!!
Honestly...It appears that the lowest demographic in level of intelligence assembles for these Facebook votes.
aka teens and burger flippers.
Reading those comments are as bad, if not worse, than Bleacher Report.
"g0 bigblue!! denard all day. hail 2 da victors lol"
I'll just vote for the fastest player in each matchup.
I'll probably buy this game either way, but I'd buy it earlier with Denard
A&M lead the earlier rounds, not sure how, but denard is currently holding a slight lead. Get the word out and tell friends to vote, or thousands of kids buying NCAA 14 will all have to Google Ryan Swope next year.
As of 3:30 CST both have over 28,000 votes with Denard holding a 100 vote lead. Don't let the A&M'ers catch up. They are like the MSU of Texas, you can't let them ever win anything.
All you need to do is click the circle and the vote counts, right?
Swope has the lead by a slim margin now.
I think it would really help if we could get the mgobanner switched for this week to a picture saying "VOTE FOR DENARD" with the link.
Swope has a 400 vote lead now
the south is out in full force
Just texted my sister back home and she is having all her little facebook friends vote too.
Apparently this is Ryan Swope. I didn't know what position he played or that he was a white wide receiver. Telling. He also looks like a hillbilly. http://www.nfl.com/combine/profiles/ryan-swope?id=2539323
Does anyone know who this Swope guy is? I am guessing no.
We need the University of Texas people on our side. Someone who knows their blogs should alert construction worker orange to vote against the aggies.
Agreed, we can't do this without help. We might even want to make a pact with another major blog that we'll vote for them next time there's no Michigan conflict.
So please reach out. I'd do it if I actually had contacts.
PS: we are currently losing
Seriously. At least people know who Denard is.
Such a stupid move by EA letting people vote. Denard is the most marketable player in the country.
Let's fix this.
Sorry. I am going to the Toledo Walleye/Denard signing on Sat with my daughters who want stuff signed and to meet him. I am not a big autograph guy but have paid the combo ticket price so I will have the opportunity.
What suggestions do you guys have for an item to be signed? I have an older authentic helmet, but I don't really need to get that signed. I have a Mike Hart and a Chris Perry signed jerseys through a charity auction. I could buy a Denard jersey, but that is easy.
Since I don't really care about the actual autograph as mush as just meeting and thanking him for being him, I thought it would be funny to print out a picture of Vincent Smith and ask Denard to sign that to get his reaction to it. It would be funny to have it say, "This isn't me" signed "Denard Robinson."
It would be great if anyone deems this worthy of its own thread.
When Denard was here in AA, I had him sign the Michigan Daily from when M beat ND in 2010 (the original 'Heisman pose' picture). I think it's cool to find something other than the standard football or helmet. The V. Smith picture is pretty creative, but just think of what you'd want hanging up 10, 15, 20 years from now.
I had him sign my ticket to his first start against UConn.
He's trailing by almost 2k now
2300 and counting he is down, wth
There are just too many people that hate Michigan.
ohio fans, state fans, notre dame fans. Plus all the SEC inbreds voting together doesn't help.
One way or another, Denard will be on the cover. I make custom covers. Hell, I have a custom Elvis Grbac cover on my Bill Walsh College Football for the Genesis.
Against us but we're slowly catching up again..don't give up..I'd love to see the haters boycott buying the game lol
It's down to Denard and some white guy WR who no one has ever heard of?? And the white WR is leading?!?! Come on, Michigan fans! Let's DO THIS! Let's GO BLUE!
I vote based on the size of their.... wikipedia pages.
Denard is back in the lead but he still is only up by less a thousand votes. Spread the word!
I went over to Shaggy Bevo and asked some Longhorns to help. They are.
Denard is in the lead right now. Let's pray he wins this.
when is the voting deadline?
March 8th, but Denard is pulling away which seems pretty accurate when referencing his career. Ryan Swope is deserving of a Heisman according to Aggie fans, but didn't break 1,000 receiving yards this season. Denard is the quintessential pick for this cover and deserves it for the role model he is. Last I checked, Denard was ahead by almost 5,000 votes; a great sign, but he needs MOAR. Go vote, Go Blue!
Denard is up by about 4000 right, but let's keep it up!
Literally telling everyone I know to vote. Seems like we're doing a great job. Keep it up! Keep telling everyone you know who is on Facebook to vote for Denard.
Denard is now up by ~11.5k
Still have a big lead but if any of you have connections as previously mentioned, to Longhorn U.. now is the time to rally them. Perhaps LSU too.. just don't want to buy a game with random white guy who ran a 4.3 40 so now he is a heisman winner in the eyes of Aggie country.
Not sure why this isn't being promoted more. Having Denard on the cover of a video game is a great way to get up and coming children aware of Michigan and if EA sports, who kids buy games from year after year, gives us a cover athlete. It raises awareness of our tradition more. Just a thought. Keep pushin that vote guys!
We're losing ground.
