It notes at the end of the chart that this year’s University of Louisville attendance was hurt by bad weather — heavy rain and a tornado watch during the event.
Still, it does a good job of tracking the growth of spring football popularity.
The big gainers of 2010? Florida State saw a jump of 15,000, Oregon saw an increase of 12,600 and Auburn drew almost 18,000 more fans than a year ago despite dealing with the bad weather.
Some of the bigger declines: Penn State and Michigan saw attendance drop by 15,000, Tennessee’s was down 16,000, Tebow-less Florida’s was down 13,500 — though the Gators still drew 51,500, sixth best in the nation.
