During a live blog conversation from a few weeks ago, a participant asked me to look into the difference between attendance for SEC teams during regular games compared with when Kentucky comes to town. I looked back at the previous three seasons and the comparison between these two stats. How the chart works is based upon average attendance in all home games that weren’t against Kentucky. Note: You may have to scroll to see the entire chart.
|Team||2013/14 Average Attendance||2013/14 vs. Kentucky||2014/15 Average Attendance||2014/15 vs. Kentucky||2015/16 Average Attendance||2015/16 vs. Kentucky|
Now, here is a look at the averages over those three seasons:
|Team||Total Average Attendance||Average Kentucky Game Attendance|
What does all of this mean? Does it mean that the SEC schools only show up for games in which Kentucky plays in? Or does it show the impact of the Big Blue Nation always finding their way in? Sound off in the comments below or let me know on Twitter @GormleyKSR.
