    ISU Falling behind

    I know there was a thread about this before, but I couldn't find it....moderators, please merge if you want.

    In the DMR is it a Cyclone state or Hawkeye state.......ISU is now behind by a few, so if you have not voted yet, here is your chance.

    Re: ISU Falling behind

    Dont even bother. The register has been removing cyclone votes to make it more even, especially in areas like iowa city they know to be Hawk areas. Meanwhile, theyre not removing obvious fakes, like notable Hawks Adam Haluska and Jack Trice.

    Re: ISU Falling behind

    Wait...are we seriously believing that the Register is taking the time to go through and remove votes?

    Ive watched it happen. I know for a fact there used to be more votes in certain towns. It wasnt that the cyclones were winning in certain areas and then others came in and voted, the total vote counts for the cyclones actually went down in a lot of places.

    It's all those Chicagoans that go to UofI (this from a native Chicagoan). They know how to work an election.

    Oh, like the "Kyle Calloway" vote from ISU in IC... with the caption "Where's my moped?"

    Fakes go both ways, FWIW.

    Agreed! The man just wants to find his moped. Can't blame him, when you're that intoxicated you tend to misplace things.
