It will look pretty embarassing when all our "fans" make up excuses of why they cannot make it.

Too early...Too much time between the show and the game....Many, many more I'm sure.

All those excuses on top of no team on the home schedule that warrants the show.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe it's just for a college gameday commercial

Yup, you are correct. Seems like someone was quick to jump on the gun and start bashing their fellow BearCat fans without even knowing the details, lol, gotta luv it.

I just don't understand the hype of getting the show.

Wouldn't change a thing on game day and promotes very little.

And I am confident that we would have a smallish crowd if it ever did come.

I think it would be the exact opposite, actually. I think it would be a big crowd wanting to prove that we have a loyal fan base. Also, I think it would really excite the casual fans

So wtf, do you have to be on Facebook to vote for this thing?

the problem is that we don't have a loyal fan base..the earlier poster hit it on the head..I can already see the thread with all of the reasons why people can't make it..

OK maybe you guys should get off it... because the voting is for a COMMERCIAL to be filmed on campus.

A great opportunity for the UC campus to get some face-time and shine!
So just vote already.

That's a, how should I put it, unsmall voting gap there.

Edit: Yeah, it looked like you could use email before, but the executives got a nice check to make it facebook only I guess. Fun bit of code they left in (to let people know we aren't crazy) the source:

Quote:
<!--
or enter email address to vote.
<br><br>
...
<input type="text" name="email" id="email"style="width:200px">-->
Translation: that's the email button they turned off. Seemed fun while it lasted....

Texas A & M has 20 times more votes than the second place school. They must have sent an email to every student, alum, staff member in the world!

Still, just cast my vote for UC!

You're probably using FF and the Vote button is not working. Try using IE. I had the same problem.

As of 4/24 @ 9:22 am EST, We're ranked #25 with around 25k votes. Florida State is #1 with over 1.2 million votes rofl.

And that's the game!

FSU must have a few good botnets under its control.

HAHA - the site now says they've been overwhelmed with fan response and they shut the site down to check the "integrity of the vote"...

yep, time to shut those bots down...

I would've expected this of Stanford or perhaps Virginia Tech, but Florida State? The FSU alums I know always said the pride of Tallahassee was a party school. You know not exactly the kind of place known for cranking out computer whiz kids.

Screwing with a vote doesn't even take computer whiz kids, just a quick google search.

Anyone in a UC comp department could figure it out.
