Some gems in this bunch, making it arguably the top grouping of posters to date. Carefully consider your options before voting.
For the newbies to the site, here is the background on the contest. Each year, the Wiz displays poster schedules of Division I-A teams. But this year, in an attempt to keep things fresh, it was decided to put the posters up to a vote of fans to determine the Wiz Readers' Choice Poster of the Year.
One problem: With roughly 70 posters in hand, it was necessary to thin the herd before a final vote. Thus, the idea of poster primaries came to be, with each primary having seven posters. This is the seventh primary, and there are enough posters in hand for three more primaries. The winner of each primary will advance to the final.
Contestants in this round: Marshall, Louisiana Lafayette, Texas El Paso, Oklahoma, Syracuse, Minnesota and Tennessee. Click here to view all of the candidates on one page.
Voting for each primary will remain open until two days after the last poster has been displayed. Then the finalists will be determined and voting will begin for the Wiz Readers' Choice Poster of the Year. That poll will remain open for one week.
There have been some surprising developments this past week in other primaries, so let's update where the voting stands:
Primary No. 1: West Virginia made the strongest move of the week, surging into first ahead of Iowa State. This race remains up for grabs.
Primary No. 2: Despite a strong showing by Idaho and Northwestern, Texas Tech appears to have an insurmountable lead.
Primary No. 3: Michigan State continues to hold on to its lead over North Carolina. We will call out North Carolina State and Missouri one more time. Where are their fans?
Primary No. 4: Florida No. 1? The Gators are barely a factor, with Louisiana Tech holding a sizable lead over Colorado. Florida State is a distant third, followed by the Gators.
Primary No. 5: Who says non-BCS teams can't compete with the big boys? Middle Tennessee maintains a lead over Bowling Green. So-called heavyweights Washington, Wisconsin, Auburn and Kansas State are getting trounced.
Primary No. 6: Penn State has grabbed the early lead, followed by Iowa, Brigham Young and Houston. Utah is fifth.
