    Before you had the option to vote directly and not through facebook. It appears you have to use a facebook account, which I don't have and won't establish, in order to vote. May cut down on a few votes cast. Any way around facebook; am I missing something?

    NU is still 2nd.
    I really hate Penn State! (And I'm not that wild about Iowa either.)

    Same question. I don't have Facebook and never will.

    Looks as though it is ONLY through facebook at this time... go ahead and make an account, it doesn't mean you have to "tweet" or anything... you can close the account after the voting ends.
    I opened up a facebook account when Bo first got hired and people wanted to get a new record for how fast he got however many friends but I have never really done anything with it since then.... it doesn't hurt of tarnish your image... honest! BBR

    Ditto. What ticks me off is that you get that option no matter what way you choose to vote.

    So ESPN is now Shilling for Facebook? Just another reason to dislike them!

    ESPN has also added a challenge response test (those ugly, hard to read characters) to ensure that the response is generated by a person. As an IT professional, challenge response tests can be hacked as well by using character recognition scripts. ESPN is also not posting the voting numbers publicly. So, it's anybody's guess who is responsible for voting/data integrity.

    One last point. I absolutely have no idea why they are still including Facebook in this whole deal. You could theoretically create thousands of aliases and use them in the contest. Again, it is painfully obvious ESPN probably outsourced this contest to an IT firm that has no idea about data integrity.

    Anyway, I still voted. Currently we're in 2nd.

    I would say that the number of steps involved is very high to forge a Facebook account + captcha. I would be surprised if anyone games this significantly

    It doesn’t matter if the glass is half full or half empty. What matters is you have a glass that has something in it. Some people have no glass, or have a glass with nothing in it. So appreciate all that is in your life and quit questioning whether your glass in half full or half empty.
