That's a lot of tickets

We in the South sometimes like to think we invented college football. If not invented, at least we're the home of college football.

Some places in the South are a little crazier about the game than others. Alabama had 92,000 people with nothing better to do on a spring Saturday in April than go to the Crimson Tide's spring football game.

But if that isn't topped, it's getting pushed. Penn State announced this week that it has sold 93,500 season tickets.

To put that number into perspective that would be selling out Tiger Stadium in just season tickets.

So there is fan passion outside of the South for college football. Sometimes we just need to look for it.
