Denard was up by close to 14k yesterday and now it's a little over 8k. I know it ends tomorrow but it doesn't state what time tomorrow. That was a huge swing since yesterday so hopefully we can hold off Swope. Denard has been leading since pretty much the start so let's wrap this up. Would love to have the third Michigan player on a cover.

It has been between 9,000 and 12,000 for the past week. He won't lose the lead, so don't worry. 9,000 votes may not seem like a lot, but it is. Have no fear, as Michigan will be the only team to have three players on the cover of EA's NCAA football game (Denard, Desmond, and Charles).

Shot up 10k after TAMU reposted on their FB....

No Michigan bots on this one? Anything else we can do other the repost and vote once?

Two big reasons. 1. We have alumni everywhere in the country. That means that everyone deals with a Michigan fan, and probably dislikes us because of it. It's not personal, think about it. We all hate Ohio, but those of us living in Michigan hate staee and those of us living out of state hate the team that everyone around them is always talking about. We have several anti Michigan voters that would be voting for anybody but us.

2. A large number of Michigan fans are anti denard. Im not saying most, but a significant number. Even 15 percent of our fan base would be a lot of lost votes. If you read my previous posts, you know I am one of those fans. However, he is not our qb anymore and I wish him the best. Also, love of Michigan should outweigh dislike of any player. I myself voted for denard every round. If you want to make a voting difference, reach outside of this blog and reach out to the Michigan fans you know that may not be voting because it's denard. Let them know that this is a vote for Michigan.

Btw. I'm aware that the anti Michigan voters are the bigger issue

I can see why you'd dislike Denard and not vote for him for the cover. He was such a loudmouthed, selfish jackass. An absolute travesty of a front man for our beloved football team. 

Unless you mean that you didn't like him as QB. In which case point number 2 of your post shouldn't matter. You ALWAYS vote for UM.

By the way, "he's not our QB anymore so I wish him the best". Why in theeee fuck would you not wish him the best when he was our cotdammed QB? I need a fucking Tylenol.

What your saying and you're right. Obviously I wanted him to do well as our qb. I just really wanted him to get benched the whole time and he made me throw shit and cuss in a weekly basis. It's kinda like watching the lions. I want them to win, but they have bad several players that I wanted gone. That's how denard was to me. It's fine with me if you like him. And my whole point is that I'm not the only one who feels that way, and those people need to realize that it's still a vote for Michigan

If anyone knows what DudePerfect is they made a video with Swope and it was just a giant campaign to get everyone to vote for him.  So that's why the lead is dwindling down.  

If you don't know what DudePerfect is, it's a gigantic youtube channel that puts up trick shot videos.  They did one with Manziel earlier in the year that blew up.

I know a popular youtube channel "corycotton" did a video with Swope and was trying to get people to vote for him.

 

Edit: someone mentioned this earlier, feel free to mark as redundant.

one can only vote on facespace. The only site less likely for me to have an account on than bookface is twatter.

I knew there was away around only voting once without creating a seperate account.   If you have a Facebook Page for your company, website, group or just want to create a new one.  You can then go and vote as the owner of that page.  Like to thank the Texas A&M fans for showing me, seems theres been ALOT of new A&M fan pages created and ALOT of votes coming from them for Swopes.

 

Right now Swopes is getting about 25-30 votes a minute, Denard is getting around 5.

I read that Swope had a 3,100 vote jump in a 32 second window...coupled with that blog post by A&M, I feel we have legitimate proof of a large group of people creating fake accounts. Although, it doesn't say anywhere that this is illegal...

The lead keeps dwindling and dwindling.  There has to be some definite cheating going on by the Aggies.  When you are up 14k last night and are only up a little over 6k nearing the last day is crazy. There were no such swings even close to this during the last week.  We need to put the pressure on and get those votes in there.  Can't lose this right at the end.
