EA would be stupid to put Swope on the cover. They have to realize all those fake "voters" can't actually buy the game right? I would say minimum of 20,000 fake votes more than Michigan's with the game sold for $60, is over $1 million loss in sales for them. I'm sure as hell not buying the game with "Swope" on the cover!

Horrible horrible Pol Pot.  I know you post as a joke that is also ironicly accurate.  Well done.  But I have to say, I've walked through the killing fields, and even today, you will find mounds of skulls the size of a shed, scattered here and there.

Oh, there they go. There they go, every time I start talkin' 'bout evil dictators, a white man got to pull Pol Pot out they ass. That's their one, that's their one. Pol Pot! Pol Pot! Let me tell you something, once and for all-Pol Pot was evil; but compared to Hitler, Pol Pot ain't shit.

 

Hitler would have had come out of retirement to fight Pol Pot the minute he was 76 years old. Hitler was always lying about his age. He lied about his age all the time. One time Frank Sinatra came in here and sat in this chair. I said Frank 'you hang out with Hitler, just between me and you, how old is Hitler?' You know what Frank told me, he said "Hey, Hitler is 137 years old." A hundred and thirty-seven years old!

I'm sure that at the end, they will look through the votes and take the fake ones out. That will give Denard a win by about 20 thousand.

Maybe I'm just naive, but I do wonder if EA has a bunch on programmer interns sitting in a back office somewhere going through as many profiles as they can checking for "legitimate accounts" for the next 7 hours.

Or if, more likely, this was just a way to get everyone to shut up. I mean, regardless of who makes the cover, people will still buy this game.

Any famous Michigan youtubers? How come no former UM football players are helping out Denard? Embarassing if we lose because we didn't spread the word enough...

Posted a convo from what I assume to be from TAMU scout... About how he knows a guy blah blah blah that works for EA... And "apperently" if Denard has less then 3,000 votes over Swope they are giving it to Swope... Stating some bs.... Go check it out.

Link?

1 - Intangible recruiting benefits.

2 - Denard deserves it. Won't be remembered as a great QB- but should long be remembered as a Michigan icon of this era.

Thought this voting was silly at first and there are honestly more deserving players this year than Denard, but I voted for these 2 reasons.

You guys REEEALLY care about this. It's like all people can talk about this week.

We have a basketball team trying to win the B1G and going into the biggest game of the year. Football is getting ready to start spring practice.

Yet we get Denard/Facebook/EA Sports threads every 4 hours and half the people in those threads are going NUTS over this "scandal."

I think this is for a great cause.  There are a lot of people dismissing this, but having the face of your brand on one of the most popular video games is huge.  Think of how you would feel perusing the shelves at Target if you stumbled on AJ Hawk in full Buckeye glory on the cover??

EA Sports appears to be trying to make this a legitimate contest...from their FB Page:

Thank you for voting and participating in the NCAA Football 14 Cover Vote. Voting is now closed. In coordination with the schools, we’ll be going through the votes with Facebook to ensure the legitimacy of the voting and reveal the winner next week.
