Thats what I'm saying, I realize Michigan fans usually say "we're above that" when it comes to cheating. Which I agree when it comes to trading gear for Tats and taking cash and loaner cars. However, when it comes to online polls, shit get gets real.
ESPN Traditions Poll Update
I would if I knew how. I can do some by hand though. Not that it will make up hundreds of thousands of votes though.
Nobody cares about suspicion, least of all ESPN. More votes = more rabid fans trying to win = more clicks. They'll probably send you a gift basket.
Hey guys, you know Mgrowold isn't going to like this line of thinking.
THE BOTS!....THE BOTS!....THE BOTS!
edit: Seems like the appropriate pep talk.
We need someone to post instructions to script votes so we can all do it and absolutely blow them out of the water
run their bot on every computer in one of those empty labs on N. Campus.
Don't do it Chet! It's not worth it. I say let them win if it's that important for them to cheat, if they won fair and square, so be it. I only care about what happens on the field.
All of the Big Ten schools are ganging up on us because they know we're about to return to glory. No one wants to see Michigan become domiant again but we will, and soon. Having my partners in the bay area vote.
This comment is ridiculous.
That winning this poll is an obvious stepping stone for Hoke. Once we win this, nothing will stop us from winning the national championship!
Also, upon reading this comment, did anyone else get a strong 'Dear Leader'/North Korea vibe?
Everyone is jealous that Brady Hoke invented the delicious "double bread with meat" and only serves it at the University of Michigan
Hoke once shot a 38 under par in 18 holes on the University course? He had 5 hole in ones!
2-1. You'll just be counterbalancing their bots and level the voting rate.
Yeah why not something outrageous like 20 to 1 to get us back into this thing
Nebraska to get the 200,000+ votes they did in under 12 hours they needed nearly 5 votes to our none (or 6-1)
All of the Big Ten schools are ganging up on us...
I doubt it. Thanks for voting though.
figuring out that "sparty" is not a term of endearment (Hollis recently tweeted (t)his epiphany to Dave Brandon) and that recently beating Michigan doesn't remove the "little bro" tag. RCMB shows that decades of dominance by Michigan over Sparty must be hard to get over.
[edit: this was meant to be a response to Erimicrom's comment about embarrasment from an inferiority complex.]
i don't know if anyone reads chuck palahniuk (fight club, etc) or not, but in one book, survivor i think, the country decides to get rid of all of its porn and sex toys and uses nebraska as its dumping ground. its a pretty cool vision of tumble-porn rolling across a dildo field. this is how i think of nebraska now.
Using that mental image as how you think of Nebraska is that that mental image is actually interesting, unlike Nebraska...
From the past couple years, my mental image of Nebraska is of this state that I either pass through at midnight to get to Colorado or this state that I pass through at midnight after I've gone through Colorado. California Zephyr FTW.
Last night around 1am, we were up 12%, or roughly 17,000 votes. This morning at 9am, we were losing by 26%, roughly 82,000 votes. So in an 8hour span from 1am-9am, they gained 100,000 votes on us. The total vote count went from 170,000 to nearly double that this morning(and now up near 400,000). It's hard to believe they picked up that many votes overnight, during THOSE hours.
and I failed to mention that I added about 200 votesjust as I was watching TV from 11pm-1am using Google Chrome.
Phew! Thanks for clarifying that. I appreciate the fact that you created another post to give us that extra info. I was beginning to wonder what you were doing on your computer at 1AM.
are you the guy who designed that Wolverine head logo on the sportslogos.com message board? That is a good logo.
I didn't, if you were asking me. I just found it on the internet and thought it was a cool pic.
Nebraska just has a lot of support in Azerbaijan. In fact, they're popular in most of central Asia.
We're getting smoked now. Boo.
Its because little brother can't stand to see us win anything. They have a thread at RCMB that is titled "help Nebraska beat SCum" or some shit like that which has a link to the voting page.
They are obsessed with Michigan
Michigan fans do not need validation from an ESPN poll.
I don't. But judging by how many threads and replies this topic has generated it seems some people do.
I'd rather wake up tomorrow morning, see the daily thread on the matchup, click the link and see Michigan winning with 1 billion votes. Thats right. 1 Billion.
Is the link in the main post,
Nonetheless, here is the link again,
IN the comments section of the poll while we were up a percentage point or two, a corn fan, was saying something to the effect of " I cant wait for this weekend when we blow this thing out of the water with a million votes, just wait for it. hahaha"
Does no one think it is rather odd that in our poll there is 596,000 votes but in the ND poll only 78,000.
This is unreal. Last night at 11ish we were up 51-49 and there were like 130,000 total votes. Now there is 591,000.
I'm personally going to vote 500 times.
1000 people x 500 votes = Michigan victory.
Who's with me?
The first 100 went pretty quick. (hint)
That is your target by the morning. If I check the poll in the morning and we have 1 billion, that would make my day.
The Nebraska traditions are weak sauce. I can't believe they are outvoting us...
Well they are out botting us
Those are the numbers as of 6am. This is unacceptable.
One of the maize & blue faithful tech guys needs to get on this ASAP. If we go down, we go down swinging.
Pretty please with sugar on top?
