It's who we are
It was the NCAA football attendance charts.
Michigan was No. 1. Penn State was No. 2. Tennessee was No. 3.
But when it came conference time, the SEC was No. 1, the Big Ten was No. 2 and the Big 12 was No. 3.
None of this is surprising. Michigan has the biggest stadium on the planet. Followed by Penn State and Tennessee.
Where the SEC is strong is at the bottom. Even Mississippi State averaged more than 40,000 fans per game. Vanderbilt was last in the SEC but 65th overall. The conference as a whole was first averaging more than 75,000 per game.
That shouldn't surprise. That's who we are. We are football fans, first and foremost.
