We're starting to hit the meat of the 2013 spring football schedule, with another big crop of games coming up the weekend of April 20. Spring games are ultimately meaningless affairs, but they give people a chance to look at football during the offseason, so they are celebrated among the more devoted segments of college football fanbases.
Let's take a look at the attendance numbers from the early games, based on what each school has offered. These numbers are claimed attendance, so you should take them with one or more grains of salt.
- It's hardly a surprise that a lot of Nebraska fans showed up for the spring game. They were also treated to one of the better moments I've seen in a long time gosh darn it my allergies acting up again--
- Look at you, Kentucky!
- Ohio State still had a healthy number of people in attendance down in Cincinnati, but they had over 81,000 in the Horseshoe for Urban Meyer's sort-of first game in 2012. Here's why they chose Cincinnati.
- I'm sure Texas had exactly 46,000 people in attendance.
- I doubt there were actually that many people there, but over 10,000 at Colorado is a shock.
- Get it together, Stanford. You're a big boy now.
