What did we do before the Internet came along to help us find all sorts of new ways to cut down on real life productivity? I mean do we really NEED a place to compare and contrast the five year attendance averages of any school or conference in college football? No, I suppose we don’t. But will we totally waste ten minutes of our life plugging different schools and conferences to see how they vary? You betcha!
Datafyme.com normally spends its time analyzing numbers for “unimportant” things like government spending trends and large magnitude earthquakes. Finally they have created something every red blooded American needs: A statistical breakdown of various schools and conferences attendance.
Just in case you are too lazy to play with this yourself, I will share a few of the results I received in comparing Clemson and USC and the ACC and SEC attendance averages over the past five years (’06-’11):
- Clemson averaged 78,090 per home game, which is at 97.25% capacity.
- USC 77,632 per home game, which is 96.68% capacity.
- The SEC averaged 75,040 fans in its home games. That is 95.63% of its capacity.
- The ACC averaged 55,436 fans per home game, which is 86.21% capacity.
