Default Home Field Advantage Ranking - 2012 FBS

Williams Brice ranked #5 .
The debate on which college football venue is the most intimidating for visiting teams is always intense and every major venue crowns their stadium as the undisputed champ. What has been missing from the debate, however, is some data to add to the discussion. Stadium Journey has developed the Home Field Advantage Ranking to compare the impact of stadiums on the home team based on several categories. The categories include home win/loss record, average attendance, the Stadium Journey "Fans" score, attendance based on percentage stadium capacity, and points scored vs points allowed.

as much as I like our ranking this system is BS. No way vanderbuilt stadium is ranked higher than Neyland in K'ville....no way.

Also LSU death valley so low, really?

Tiger Stadium at 9 and Autzen at 16. Lost credibility there.

Default Re: Home Field Advantage Ranking - 2012 FBS

why should attendance based on capacity be factored in? i'd rather have 80,000 in a 100,000 person stadium than 30,000 in a 30,000 person stadium. stupid rankings

I guess UT wasn't very intimidating last year and it seems like thats pretty much what the ratings were based on.

Only thing I can think of is if a home team only fills up it's stadium to 70-80% capacity, then that means the visiting team can fill it with it's fans?

This can't be right. Tennessee played 11 home games last year?

It's not they played 7.

Don't know why I said 4-7.

Meant they won 4 games of their 7 at home against those opponents.

Default Re: Home Field Advantage Ranking - 2012 FBS

these links crack me up...people come out of the woodworks to post their thoughts on preseason rankings, stadium rankings, prettiest uniforms, etc....

These are nothing more than someone's opinion, and there is no basis for this if it is based on just last year. At least do some research and base it on a few years.

Interesting idea, but the methodology is a bit off. They need to weight the wins and losses based on who they played and how tough the opponent is.

I think the key wrong assumption is that the wins are directly related to fan interaction. Fans are only one of many factors. While it is nice to think we are 5, I don't think our fans are that much different from when we beat MSU with the fade.
