we just have to remind longhorn fans that an A&M player is about to win something...90% of Texas will then proceed to vote for Denard...I'm sure the rest of the big 10 already voted against us

The official Michigan Football Facebook page just posted a screenshot of the incriminating A&M message board. At least it's not going unnoticed. And now over 1 MILLION Michigan fans know how to vote multiple times.

I saw that and laughed, highly doubt that was unintentional.

For those who didn't see it, the way to easily vote multiple times is to create/use fan pages. You can make one, then to to it by clicking the settings cog and switching to the fan page instead of your regular profile. These will allow you to vote multiple times.

If swope is on the cover I'll just tear his picture out when I buy it and put Denard in there. I hadn't even heard of the guy till before the finals of the voting started.

You know what? Screw it. If they win, they win. I mean sure, I'd love for Denard to win, and it would be good exposure for him. But it's not like Michigan is in need of extra exposure. I don't think this will make the difference in the mind of a recruit other than an incredibly shallow one, and if that's the case, he shouldn't be here anyway.

Even if A&M wins, they'll still get a ton of crap from everyone about how a kid that no one outside of College Station has ever heard of somehow made his way onto the EA cover. Swope is a nobody. If its so important to A&M fans to go find loopholes in the voting or whatever they're allegedly doing to catch up so quickly to make sure their beloved Swope makes his way onto the cover of a video game, let them have it. Clearly, they need the exposure more than we do.

Finally, this time next year, nobody cares. The process starts all over again. You think Woodson and Howard are still getting accolades and praise because they were on the cover of NCAA football? Bottom line, I'd love for Denard to win, but this shouldn't ruin our day if he isn't selected. He's getting what is most important for him: getting drafted.

I don't think that plan is why Swope has made up ground. I have a hard time believing that a February 26th message board post proximately caused Swope's total to swell on March 7th. That said, if someone here knows how to rig this thing - do it for Denard.

Swope is catching up because of this video.   This youtube channel has a huge following and this video was just posted yesterday.  The video is probably getting thousands of views per hour and I'm sure at least 100 of those 1000 are voting for Swope.
