This week Joe is head to head with voting powerhouse, UTEP. PayDirt Pete sits at #2 in the Mascot rankings and is currently undefeated. He pulled in over 100K votes last week to beat Ohio State. He may be feeling confident, but let’s take him by surprise and show him who the best mascot really is- LET’S HAND HIM HIS FIRST LOSS!!
We hung close all day Monday in the votes and we’ve started Tuesday off about 3,000 behind- which can be made up QUICKLY. The important thing this week is that we are TEXTING OUR VOTES IN!! This is much quicker and you can get more votes sent off. Let’s review the texting rules- you can send up to 250 text votes per hour. Once you reach that number your phone number is restricted from voting for 12 hours- SO, don’t hit 250- do 249!!! If you know anyone with unlimited texting plans ask to borrow their phone and send in some extra votes! It’s simple- TEXT the word JOEVANDAL to 69866!!!
In other voting news, an alliance was formed last week with the Ohio State Buckeye voters. They also want to see UTEP lose and they have A LOT of voters. We do not go head to head with Brutus (we already lost to him earlier) so it is a safe alliance to build. We can really benefit from any extra votes the Buckeyes can send us- so, from now until the end of the regular season VANDALS VOTE FOR BRUTUS and BUCKEYES VOTE FOR JOE! I’ll be sharing OSU blog posts and Tweets supporting Joe as I receive them.
We can do this, Vandals! Do whatever you need to do to keep the heat on Pete! You must hate to lose more than you love to win- he’s a big opponent but he underestimates us! I’ve managed to make contact with WAC groups this week and have seen Tweets on Twitter from them asking for votes! Tell everyone you can and spread the word! Follow Joe on Twitter – @Vote4JoeVandal and RT to all your friends, local businesses, football fans, alumni, professors, clubs, etc.
REMEMBER- Tell everyone how to vote by text! This is the fastest and easiest way to rack up votes and send Pete home with a LOSS this week!!! 🙂 Text JOEVANDAL to 69866!!
