- Attendance. How much fan support is there? Obviously some stadiums are far bigger than others so this might not seem fair, but it's a good indication of interest in the program counting the average attendance for home dates from 2003 to 2005 and divided by 10,000 to get the score. For example, Iowa averaged 68,927 fans per game over the last three seasons, so the program gets a score of 6.89. 
Why this is important: Some stadiums are bigger than others and some teams get more support, but that's the point. It's a big deal to the bottom line of an athletic department, and the relevance of the football program to recruits and the national media, to get 100,000+ butts in the seats at places like Ohio State, Tennessee and Penn State. How can Eastern Michigan and its average of 11,000 fans per game compete when compared to Michigan and its average of 112,000 fans? Exactly.
