According to the website you can vote once a day. This means once a day from each computer so if you have one at work and one at home you can vote from both daily. Judging from the percentages on the webpage it appears the North Carolina folks are already doing this.

TEXT YOUR BUDDIES! SPREAD THE WORD! VOTE EVERYDAY!!!

Post by FANatic on Thu Oct 18, 2007 8:54 am

Like A_Fan says: vote every day from every computer you have access to! Spread the word. Steph and Angie both deserve this award! (I guess this is what is called stuffing the ballot box. But I presume that is what everyone else is doing or you don't stand a chance. Tough competition, as always, from that N.C. crowd).

I was a little concerned about the ethics of my suggestion FANatic so we did a little experiment here at work this morning. I asked 10 people to go in and vote for Angie and Stephanie. When the last person was done voting we looked at the percentages to see what effect 10 votes would have on the totals. In just the few minutes that it took for me to do this experiment Angie stayed at 5%, Stephanie dropped from 6% to 5% and Jessica Maxwell from UNC went from 24% to 30%. I'm not concerned about the ethics any more.

I just checked... we got them up to 8 percent, but still well behind the leaders. I'm thinking we might need to call on the rest of the WCC message boards to help us out with this one!

OK... just voted from a different computer, and Stephanie is up to 12% and Angie up to 11%... if we keep it up, we'll get them into second and third place in no time. The UNC girl might be tough to catch, but I have the feeling they don't have the kind of dedicated support that we do!!! Smile

I heard that Steph decided to sit out the WNT versus Mexico match. Said she wanted to "rest" for the Pilot games
this weekend. I'm sure that was a tough decision and a huge sacrifice for her to make. I would've been proud to see her bask in the limelight a little bit. I'm sure a large part of the 10,000 that attended the game were disappointed and missed seeing her play! She deserves some time to be recognized by local and national soccer affectionadoes.

But NO...she's thinking of the UP Pilots....instead of herself! Love ya too Steph! I will dedicate myself to stuff the ballot box!

GO PILOTS!!

Hey You!!! Yes you, UP Student!

Post by FANatic on Mon Oct 22, 2007 1:24 pm

Text your fellow classmates. Text your fellow dormmates. Text your neighbors. Text family and friends. For the sake of UP Athletics and the tremendous careers of student-athletes Angie Woznuk and Stephanie Lopez, send out emails with a gazillion addresses on them. PLEASE!!! Don't let North Carolina get the best of us again. They may have a far bigger student body, but not as big as the hearts of Pilot students, staff, community and fans. This is a campaign of PRIDE. For your school. For your community. And for the wonderful and deserving Angie and Stephanie. VOTE FOR THEM BOTH, NOW AND EVERY DAY UNTIL 11/21/2007!!!

I just don't believe these results. There are NO fans more dedicated to their soccer team than Pilot fans!!! Just on attendance numbers alone....we should be sweeping the vote on this!!!! It just doesn't make sense! There must be a conspiracy?!! UNC's and Illinios's Athletic and IT Departments must be in bed together on this. They must've programmed voting scripts to run all day!!

GUPhantom,

You shouldn't be too shocked.

The enrollment at Illinois is 62,000, The UNC system is around 65,000.

UP is doing pretty good, if they take that into account.

Still--Keep on voting!!!

Bump, plus link: http://soccer.seniorclassaward.com/women/candidates.aspx

Speaking of charity and outreach, is there a 'project' or fundraiser this year? I was able to donate in 2005, but couldn't last year due to the local nature of it.

I don't know everyone. This is smelling very fishy. Except for Jessica Maxwell of UNC....does Illinois and Charlotte even know that they have a women's soccer team?? Shocked

On a serious note...the gals are all deserving of the award! Some of the resumes are unbelievable! What an acheivement it is to be both academically and athletically successful! How they do that? Unfortunately...I didn't have the talent to do either well! Embarassed Congratulations to who ever wins! Well deserved!

Yes, something is up with that voting. I vote on 16 computers a day here at work and it seems to make no difference at all. Angie and Stephanie are down to 6% today. I tried turning off the cookies as a previous poster suggested, but that did not work. When you get to the security code with cookies off it seems to go into a loop bringing up new codes and never recording the vote. Anyone else have a suggestion? I wonder if they weigh the coaches votes differently?

With the help of a friend at work we figured out how to vote multiple times a day from one computer. You need to have cookies turned on, but after each vote you need to delete the Senior Class Award cookie. In Firefox you do it by going to Tools>Options>Show Cookies>then highlight the Senior Class Award Cookie and push the Remove Cookies button. You are then good to vote again. In Internet Explorer it is a more complicated process so if you want to vote for Angie and Stephanie more than once a day I suggest you download Firefox.

Despite our best efforts the Pilots are not rising in the fan voting and in fact are being caught by players from the other schools. The Lowe's website indicates that the Media and Coaches also vote. I emailed the website to ask if the votes of the Coaches was weighted more than the fan vote since a person from a small school would apparently never have a chance to win the fan vote (based on our experience this year).

Here was their response: "Coaches may be more objective, this is why the media, coaches and the sponsor make up a largest portion of the voting formula.

In Basketball (which, has been in existence much longer) there have been small school winners. IE: Duke, St Joseph's, and Xavier. Last year's Lacrosse winner was from Cornell.

Small School candidates can and do win the award, but they often do not win the fan vote outright..."

This still gives me hope that a Pilot may yet win this award.
