Hey Patch admin...I'm just curious...regardless of the outcome, has there ever been a vote that generated this much attention? Everybody I know is talking about this. This has got to be great publicity for your website! (Which causes hits...which generate revenue...) I think the real winner of this week's contest is Joe Barker! :)

Let you all know lexie is an amazing athlete. I go to west. She has a leadership quality that sets her apart from the rest. And she's genuine. And just because her brother can reach out to half the state doesn't mean anything. T.j. Deserves his fame at west and mizzou. Lexie is starting her own path. Love ya lex
