Recap Of SEC Spring Games Attendance
Alabama's incredible 2007 A-Day Game attendance of 92,138 made spring football game numbers a part of this year's report. Here by team are 2008 spring football game attendance figurers:
Alabama – 78,200 (second highest in school history)
Arkansas – 40,200 (school record)
Auburn – 35,000
Florida – 61,000 (school record)
Georgia – 19,874
Kentucky – 8,500
LSU – 33,624
Ole Miss – 28,311 (school record)
Mississippi State – 6,000
South Carolina – 31,125
Tennessee – 28,898
Vanderbilt – 2,500
TOTAL – 373,232
Average – 31,103
It is interesting that a few schools had all-time attendance records the year following Alabama's national record.
Also interesting is that at least two schools -- Florida and Tennessee -- had been reported as scheming to break the Alabama record of 92,138.
So why does it matter? As Alabama Coach Nick Saban has said over and over, the turnout of Crimson Tide fans for the A-Day Game in 2007 was a major influence on prospects as Bama signed the nation's number one recruiting class in 2008.
