Originally I tried to use a sticky footer technique but with no success so then I took out that sticky footer code and the footer actually became now only 37 pixels away from fully sticking to the bottom of the page.
I took the stick footer code and applied it to the wrapper but it did not work. Its when I took it out that the footer dropped about 100 pixels closer to the bottom of the page.
UPDATE: Look below to Friday, March 13th post for the solution to this problem
