    My vote 4 Mr. Tips just put the race at a difference of one point, showing that every vote truly does matter.

    Pope McCorkle III 50.02% (1,055 votes)
    Dick Tips 49.98% (1,054 votes)

    The additional point he gained between your vote and mine came from my coworker, to whom I stressed the importance of getting Dick on top.

    I voted Tips. It would be a travesty if he was defeated by some yokel (and college professor, so literally NOT a yokel) named "Pope McCorkle".

    The hot money is on "Sweet Orefice" to take this thing home though, baby.

    Could be suspicious but it might be more innocent...in such a small poll, just a good chunk of his college voting would sway it.

    I'll certainly be lumping on Orefice if Dick comes up short!

    R they on the same side of the bracket? I'd rather C them compete mano a mano, Dick meet Orefice.

    If McCorkle makes it out of the final four the fix is clearly in.

    Update: my boss went to coal country this week and met Rusty Justice. Described him as "awesome".

    Maybe we should pool resources and get these Kentucky Coders to design us a new forum? https://backchannel.com/canary-in-the-code-mine-903884eca853#.vwxi572fk

    Not only did they choose the 4th most popular name over Boaty, they've also  forced the name on a remotely operated underwater vehicle aka Subby McSubface

    Mr. McCorkle's path to the final has been a bit more controversial. In the Sithole Regional, he squeezed Kiwi Comizio, fired Oozi Cats, blasphemed against Saint Schwing, and edged out Dick Tips. That final victory, which came against a fan favorite, caused many voters to cry foul. A Final Four triumph against Tillmann Buttersack only strengthened the cries of conspiracy.

    The truth is a lot simpler: P-Mc3's family has been stumping 4 him. They've shared the NOTY ballots on Facebook, thus allowing his loved ones to descend upon our tournament and influence it. Whether U like it or not, social media promotion is absolutely within the NOTY rules, and without it, several past winners, such as popular athletes Steele Sidebottom and Barkevious Mingo, would never have tasted victory.
    Well I hope he's proud of himself.

    McCorkle isn't even the best name 4 an academic in the bracket. That distinction goes to Howdy Goudey: http://eetd.lbl.gov/people/howdy-goudey

    Self-promotion is all well and good. Cheers to his family. But they're doing all of us a disservice and we won't forget that.

    Hopefully Sweet Orefice takes it and we can forget all about this sorry McCorkle episode.

    I already texted someone to vote Sweet. Now McCorkle is suddenly up by almost 40 votes. We've got to do more.

    The whole thing has been dispiriting, this year.  McCorkle is a fraud.

    R these tainted victories well-known or is this how everyone now is finding out that the whole thing has been terribly corrupt 4 years?

    Or is this just the High Committee's way of publicly disapproving of The People's choice 4 name of the year in those cases

    Its certainly prone to this kind of behaviour.

    The first time I heard of the polll was back in 2010 when it was mentioned in an AFL broadcast in reference to Collingwood's Steele Sidebottom. With that kind of exposure, Its hardly surprising that he romped past Charity Beaver in the Final 4 and then mashed Banana Yaya to claim the big prize.
