    Mascot Challenge -- ISU vs. ARK

    It appears we're currently losing. With 53% to 47%. We should probably think about finishing this thing off since we've already spent a bunch of time on it.

    Probably a good idea..Lets finish the deal. I am guessing there are some tired people. Maybe we need the weekend off. Only 8,000 votes so far.

    Re: Mascot Challenge -- ISU vs. ARK

    I'm not blocking cookies on one of my computers here at work so I can track the percentages but I can't get them to show up. It just goes to the vote screen again. Is anyone else having that problem?

    Same here, can't get to the percentages.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    I can get to them.

    53% Arkansas Razorbacks

    47% Iowa State Cyclones

    Total Votes: 8158

    I'm going to be out of town until Monday night so I won't be able to vote. Hopefully we don't have a "let down" after the fiece battle with MSU.

    Re: Mascot Challenge -- ISU vs. ARK

    I believe that CBS has but a block on people who vote massively and that is why the totals are so low. I voted probably 100 times last light and the vote total only went up by 34 in 2 hours. Oh and in those 34 votes they picked up a 2% lead (It went from 50-50 to 52-48)

    Also if someone would like to verify this with CBS that would be great, I would send an email, but I have to leave like 30 minutes ago, so...

    "It was not shut down, but people who were mass voting – on both sides – were not allowed to vote anymore. So that’s why the voting slowed down.

    I received this response when I asked about the slow down in voting at the end of the ISU MSU matchup. Looks like this is the case for the finals as well.

    As it turns out I cannot vote anymore AFTER HE STATED HERE THAT I CAN RAPID FIRE MY VOTES.
    Darst if you are reading this, you are a hypocrite. Telling me this and then stating I cant.

    No – we said along time ago – this is the American Idol of mascots – vote as many times as you like as long as they are MANUAL votes – if you want to spend all night clicking 50,000 times, that’s fine, but what’s not allowed is setting up an automated program (sorry not using that cause I know thats cheating)to vote while you are sleeping.

    I agree 100% so rapid firing is allowed to submit votes?

    What exactly are the rules?

    “Word on the street is Iowa State has a computer lab with 30 computers set up for 24-hour voting. Students are in shifts coming in and click, click, clicking.”-

    Is there a limited amounts that you can vote?
    Please explain

    I told you Dave... He'd do something like that. That's ok... we know there are other computers that we can use.

    Wow, you really took time out of your day to mail people at cbs to find out how to play the system better? Dosen't that just seem a little pathetic?

    It is pathetic. It's also pathetic that we have people that joined the MSU board to trash talk them over a stupid internet poll. Like I've said all along, this is just a big pi$$ing contest and some people both here and at MSU have wasted way too much time with this. Yeah I'd love to see us win it but I'm not finding ways to multiple vote. I vote once on my home PC and once on my work PC then check the totals occasionaly. If I had nothing better to do than to email the CBS guy, trash talk on the MSU boards, and constantly post here begging for others to vote more then I think I'd have to take a look in the mirror and wonder why I don't have better things to do...

    I find it rather ironic that someone who has posted over 1200 times to this forum would scold other posters for not having "better things to do"...

    Re: Mascot Challenge -- ISU vs. ARK

    ok no more bashin other people..


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."
