You may have heard us mention that ESPN’s College GameDay crew is currently polling fanbases to see where they’ll film a commercial on campus this summer. Well, believe it or not, we’re not winning.
Currently, the leaderboard is as follows:
You’ll see Texas A&M is in the lead with a whopping 63,565 votes, while Kentucky has tallied just 3,018, good for 25th place. I gotta admit, I’m surprised by our low turnout. Seriously, East Carolina has double the votes that we have. I’m not saying we have to win, but surely we can do better than this, right? I know this is a football poll (it’d have to be to get Arkansas and South Carolina interested), but BBN is known for dominating online polls like they’re Memorial Coliseum. Let’s not make this an exception. I’d at least like to beat 5th place West Virginia, which currently has 16,857. That’s not so much to ask, and rest assured I’ll be voting every day to see it happen.
Head on over and vote here, and keep voting once a day until they won’t let you anymore. We can’t let people think that UK’s historical reign of dominating online polls is over. It’s gonna take a village, but we can each do our part.
