Does the voting officially end at midnight tonight?
Edit: Found. It ends in 27 hours, not 3. Don't like where this is headed with A&M fans seemingly having nothing better to do than make fake pages to like their player.

Down to 5,000. This is stupid.
They closed the gap by a thousand in less than 15 minutes
It's such a joke. What's even worse is in some of the comments, the A&M fans are claiming they don't cheat and it's against their "code" or some b.s. like that. The ones that do admit to cheating say this is all just a test of which fan base is more dedicated. Good to see the SEC morals of the teams have affected the fan base in just one year's time.
I really don't think it violates any codes of ethics.
Who wants it more?! Apparently not us...
No kidding. When I made my "Hey, help us vote for Denard" threads on the Baylor and Texas boards, both fanbases clearly stated that Aggies take voting seriously.. I'm inclined to believe them after this.
Screw it, I'll just make a custom cover even if he loses.
There's a reason each Facebook page can only vote once. That's what I'm basing my ethics questioning on. If they wanted people voting more than once, they'd make it like an all-star game, where you can vote up to 25 times per day, or something.
This is a big deal though. Really helps recruiting and brings attention to Michigan. Every high school football players plays this game.
That is because Johnny Football just tweeted to go vote a bit ago. He has 330k followers.
That's some bs
God, we should be able to pull a lot of Texas fans....
Dude you should go try
Why aren't our fans cheating then? Just create a 2nd Facebook account and vote. That's what they are doing so why not us
You don't even need a 2nd account. You just need to create fan pages. Takes about 30 seconds to do. I figured this out like 7-10 days ago. I've created many.
FWIW I don't think it's right. There is essentially an honor code that many Ags take seriously, it's A&M's core values and traditions.
Six core values are at the heart of what Texas AM is all about: loyalty, integrity, excellence, leadership, respect and selfless service.
Go Blue & Gig Em'!
Be honest did you vote for Denard?
This will be the first year since like 2002 I won't buy if this shit stands. Some total garbage
Saying A&M is cheating is about as ignorant as you can get. Both sides are "cheating" if that's what you want to call it.
The deficit this morning was 12,000 votes. If A&M fans are dedicated enough to make 12,000 accounts just to vote on Swope being on the cover of a video game, that's impressive and they deserve it.
Ever think it can be due to the Dude Perfect video with Ryan Swope? 1 video link on youtube has 108,000 views. Another link has 78,000 views.
Or it could be due to the fact that this years HEISMAN winner tweeted the link to vote asking people to vote for Swope. Manziel has close to 319,000 followers. I think either of those are more likely the cause of Swope catching up as opposed to the Aggies cheating. Get real people.
Your will to win will define you tomorrow.
Or it could be due to this:
I don't care either way. If y'all wanna make fake pages and sit at your computer all day so that your guy is on a video game, fine by me. I'm happy with actually having a life. But don't say we're ignorant for saying A&M is cheating when there's proof right here.
I've never denied it, but there are two points that Robinson voters fail to cover. First is that A&M is not the only one doing this, Rabinson voters are fabricating fake pages as well to garner votes. Robinson voters are failing to acknowledge that the boost in votes for Swope could have very well been from the youtube video and/or Manziel's twitter campaign.
Also, here is your post from the TAMU board:
"Michigan fans have to sleep some time or another, A&M's voting bots don't have to though!!"
Please tell me how voting bots isn't cheating?
whatever man. If this vote is really that important to you, good for you. I'll personally worry about things that actually matter in my life, which would not include a video game cover.
Lol creating 12000 accounts is impressive? In what world? Seems pretty sad and reeks of desperation
