I know what you mean. My students were excited about the morning vote update, but when there was no afternoon update they were a little off kilter. That and the girls were sad when I told them that they had to go around school and take down their posters.

"This year's totals more than doubled last year's votes, which named Steele the winner. Steele's total votes numbered 37,275 and runner-up Rick Wiltzius votes' totaled 33,838."

It looks like Steele was able to score over 7,000 paper ballots. Maybe it was class homework...

According to rules, each of those ballots was supposed to be mailed in separately unless they went in a Goodwill, etc. drop box...it would be interesting to know how that played out (or if the rules even mattered).

Our Rick is second from the left in the cheese tophat. The Penn St. guy is in the dark suit and tie.

Looks like any kind of election can be bought these days. We all know who the REAL fan is. The other Rick will have to live with his conscience about how he used his students for personal gain. Sad.

Something seems wrong that the guy who won is wearing the least amount of green and gold...
