Help 'Script Ohio' Defeat 'Jump Around' in SiriusXM's Tradition Tournament

Normally, I don't care about internet tournaments outside of Eleven Warriors' Heart of it All Classic. But it appears we are a mere four hours away from one of the biggest abominations in internet voting history, and I can't take this sitting down.

SiriusXM is hosting a college football traditions tournament. Their final has come down to Wisconsin's "Jump Around" vs. the incomparable Script Ohio.

One features a 1992 hip-hop track from the inconsequential House of Pain, and a bunch of drunk Wisconsinites jumping around like they're at a house party

The other is a college tradition dating back to 1936 featuring The Best Damn Band in the Land. I may be biased, but this is a no-brainer.

And yet, here we are. Roughly four hours remain in the voting and Script Ohio trails Jump around by a mere 2,000 votes. You can head here to vote and help avert this travesty. Voting is open until 3 PM eastern today.

And in case you needed any extra motivation:

OSU is gaining fairly quickly right now.  It is down to almost 1600 votes.

If things continue at this rate, TBDBITL should be well into the lead by 3pm.

Down to 500 now. 

This is shaping up like the last couple Wisconsin-OSU games.

We appear to have stalled around 400 votes down.

So can the rest of the B1G combine forces on the field too?  And if so, would they win?

Thank you for bringing attention to this! I can't believe anything as weak as jumping up and down in the stands can compete with TBDBITL. Let's get it done, 11W.

This must not stand. Also, the final should be Script Ohio vs. Mirror Lake Jump.

So I logged into facebook for the first time in 3 years to vote.  I go on, and i clicked the radial button, that it?  Cause nothing happened.

I think you are supposed to click on the bar that says "Script Ohio - Ohio State."  Then it will add your facebook picture beside the bar and you will know you voted.

Right now, there is a difference of 78 votes separating the two.  The Jump Around is ahead at the moment.  Go vote!

1 pm Eastern right now.  You have two hours!

Script Ohio just took the lead...but voting on both sides is brisk.  Will be close to the end, I think.  I'm with DJ, and I think most folks here agree, such polls are useless - but Script Ohio can't lose to jumping.

Agreed. I'd normally not take part in such things, but an outrageous injustice such as Wisconsin winning can not possibly stand...

Maybe Lebron news will help?? 

Wish we could connect this to his news to Buckeye fans some how??

They had to cheat to win. Typical.

The person responsible for toes clearly wanted you to stub them.

I just recruited my 10,000 Facebook friends to help our cause. Shouldn't take long overtake the #1 spot.

When Is it over? We can fill a 100,000 seat stadium but no more than 50,000 votes???????

Sad, very sad. Where is Buckeye Nation?

I'm guessing not on Facebook.  Is that necessarily a bad thing?

It ended at 3 p.m.  We lost.  I hate losing at anything but it was a Facebook poll.  Oh well.

It was a Sirius XM Radio Poll on Face book. I don't have facebook but made my wife and her friends vote.

The fact that UW had to recruit votes from TTUN fans simply PROVES that Script Ohio is the nation's #1 tradition. Besides, does Wisconsin have Jump Around license plates? No? I rest my case, m'lud.

I think it is still open. I just voted and it is 59.9K tOSU and 58.8k for cheesetards plus scum (douche) bags. It is currently 0945 on the 12th (Saturday).

Cheesehead and scUM combined, and they might beat us at something.

Even though it was just one poll out of literally thousands on the Internet, I find it amusing that someone would actually vote for people jumping around to some outdated, mildly embarrassing hip-hop over the most recognized tradition in all of college sports.  I get and understand the bias-vote; "I'm going to vote for my favorite team/program/school regardless of how ridiculous it is!", but who was their target demographic in this vote?  12-13 year olds? 

If you need italics to understand or imply sarcasm, then you're doing it wrong.
