this is very nice analysis - well done!  

but there has to be a salt lick around to account for all the grains you have to take with the attendance figures.  I was at the Peach Bowl, in the new Benz stadium - and NO WAY was there 74000 in there.  i was in there for the MLS Cup (#ATLUTD) and that place was jammed, and rocking, and attendance announced at an MLS record 73,000 and change.  

at the Peach bowl, i could clearly see empty seats everywhere, and during first quarter guessed to those around me 35-40k at best.  no chance it was 74k, even if you count all the concessions, media and security people (like the University does in AA).

i bet that except for CFP and maybe the Rose Bowl, you could cut all of these attendance figures in half...i guess that would just apply an offset bias to all of your charts, but still....

you do have the Idaho Potato bowl or whatever in Boise. there has been snow for that before.  and the pinstripe in NYC had snow a couple of years ago?

 

would love to have the rose bowl alternate between pasadena and ann arbor every year.  or soldier field....

New M hoodie to replace any one of my well-worn sweatshirts, a new M polo - grey with blue M on breast - different from all my Blue and maize ones. Two new Michigan bottle cozies...and of course bowl game tix (gifted to myself) since we live in Atlanta and couldn’t pass that up...

I was there with my old man. I was 14 and had been going for years - and still maintain the rule I learned from him and reinforced that day - NEVER leave until the clock says 0:00.  Still don’t. Irritates my wife, especially when we are up 39-13 in the rain against someone like Western. 

What I also remember - listening to Ufer with the transistor radio, and thinking he’d have a grabber right there.  And I also remember all the fans who started leaving when IU tied it - and all of them finding out when they got to their cars what they’d missed. 

This, along with Des’s pose and Woodson’s OSU game were the greatest games I have been to...so far

Grown kids - college age - so Football during the day, big spread appetizer buffet my wife spends all day prepping, then The Ref - one of the top five Xmas movies of all time.

I just reread all this - most of it aloud to the wife, and we both laughed hard enough to bring tears at the ‘in America dog eat you’ line...

01/24/2017 - 2:48pm The Bomber

live in Atlanta now, and every football weekend back, we are up early on Sunday to hit the Bomber before going to the airport.  I usually buy for our hosts and their kids, and we go with other friends and their kids.  with a group of at least 12 people, we must go through 20 pounds of potatoes just at our tables....

best breakfast, without at doubt....

12/04/2016 - 2:36pm BBVA Compass Bowl

live in Atlanta, been there twice (Birmingham AL) - wife went to Pitt, daughter went to Ole Miss.  went once when they played each other (2013) after having taken the wife to her first Pitt bowl game in 2011.  

2013 was strange - pulled between wife and daughter on who to root for.  I wore my Michigan gear.
