This, as much as anything, is the reason very little is likely to change at the upper levels of the AD.

first, if true, that's incredible. But I'm calling BS.

second, the tweet doesn't state or provide a link to the source, but I'm assuming this is only considering home attendance and is accounting for non-conf games (quick check of CU's numbers confirms both of those points).

third, using numbers from wiki (which match the above for CU -- I didn't take steps to verify the others) for average home attendance this year, I'm seeing CU at 5th:
  1. Washington, 61041
  2. USC, 53886
  3. Utah, 51660
  4. Oregon, 48311
  5. CU, 47524
  6. UCLA, 47429
  7. ASU, 43405
we may be 2nd in terms of ratio of average attendance to stadium capacity, but we're not 2nd in attendance.

CU is 2nd as a percentage of occupancy, and further down the list when talking real numbers, as you rightly show. A lot of spin there.

I think the secret is in the attendance rate reference. If you torture numbers long enough, they’ll tell you everything you want to know.

True, but CU draws more fans than any other P12 team for games played in Boulder County.

90% of all shark attacks happen in less than 5 feet of water!

My CU computer stats professor led our discussion with that point in 1990 or so.

Parsing data matters in life. Too bad most people suck at it.
