NSU Professor Leads Goulet Voting

As voting for the Robert Goulet Memorial Mustached American of the Year closed at midnight, Northeastern State University accounting professor John Yeutter was the surprise leader.
But we won’t know the results until the winner of the coveted Goulet honor is named at the American Mustache Institute’s Halloween extravaganza – ‘Stache Bash 2009 featuring John Oates and presented by Quicken, to be held on Oct. 30 in St. Louis at the Orpheum Theater. The event is a charity fundraiser for Challenger Baseball, a baseball league for kids and adults with disabilities.
According to a report on the closing days of the online voting, the top four were:
Yeutter: Green mustache and Chuck Taylor wearing NSU accounting professor who is one of the school’s most ardent supporters of its sports teams. He might be doing so well because he has a link to the voting site on his university home page.
Clay Zavada: He quit baseball to help manage the family farm after the death of his father, he used the old-school handlebar mustache to cement himself as one of the NL’s top relief men in 2009.
Brendan Ryan: Entered the 2009 season as a virtually unknown utility infielder known for his scrappy defense. He then grew a mustache, played Gold Glove quality defense, hit near .300, and led the Cardinals into the playoffs. Too bad his teammates shaved their mustaches or the Cards might still be playing.
Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger: Life-saving hero of the U.S. Airways crash in the Hudson River.
Jennifer Zehnder, assistant director of Communications & Marketing at NSU, said she was aware of a lot of chatter online about Yeutter’s status in the ‘stache competition.
“He was one of the few candidates who used word of mouth and social media to get the word out,” she said.
