Each year, this site 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. A high honor, indeed. ...
One problem: With over 60 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 sixth primary, and there are enough posters in hand for at least three more. The winner of each of the primaries advances to the final.
Contestants in this round: Penn State, Iowa, Southern Mississippi, Brigham Young, Utah, Houston and Rice. Click here to review the candidates' posters.
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.
Let's update where the voting stands in the other primaries:
Primary No. 1: Iowa State has a commanding lead over West Virginia. Where are the Mountaineer fans?
Primary No. 2: Texas Tech would appear to have this primary wrapped up, with a huge lead over Idaho and Northwestern.
Primary No. 3: This one is still up for grabs, with Michigan State leading North Carolina. The Missouri and North Carolina State campaigns have been big disappointments.
Primary No. 4: A strong showing this past week by Louisiana Tech has vaulted it into the lead over Colorado. Florida State is a distant third.
Primary No. 5: Another tight race, with Middle Tennessee clinging to a lead over Bowling Green. Washington, Wisconsin, Auburn and Kansas State fans, you should be ashamed.
