You can't measure it and that is why this article means nothing.

You even bother to read?

Quote:
How We Did It
Fan engagement is evaluated in terms of the following metrics. The data is based on the 2012 season, excluding bowl games. Each metric was given a corresponding weight, listed in bold, which was determined based on how indicative the metric is of fan activity. For example, home attendance and ticket price are both weighted higher because they are a better direct reflection of home team behavior. Similarly, online metrics are not weighted as high as offline metrics because they reflect only the university-sanctioned social channel and do not account for other fan communities

Average total attendance, all games (5)
Average home attendance (10)
Average ticket price, all games (5)
Average home game ticket price (10)
Percentage of stadium capacity filled at home games (10)
Facebook likes & Facebook "talking about" (6)
Twitter following (3)

You know it is the dead of summer when these "stories" start popping up.

Just two weeks until fall camp starts...can't get here soon enough so we can actually have something to talk about...keeping in mind there is only so much you can get from practice.

Another good measure would be the number that attends away games. I know there's not really a way to track the exact number but that number would be pretty telling.

Default Re: 25 most hardcore fan bases

those metrics are retarded for trying to determine "college football's most engaged fans".

for example one of the criteria is the number of likes on facebook...UNC ranks 4th (according to their numbers), UNC has the least engaged football fan base I have ever been around. they have tons of "fans" (read people that are UNC basketball fans) who come out of the woodwork when they win a game or two.

another example: ticket price. In a way this can represent the demand for tickets, but I highly doubt that it takes into account the different economic situations that each school faces.

total attendance is also going to end up skewing the results as a school whose stadium only hold 80,000 is never going to be able to squeeze 100,000 into their stadium, no matter how engaged their fan bases are.

also their rankings do not take into account the number of games that are on TV and the number of viewers of those games, which in my opinion would also give some insight into the fan bases since there are many reasons why some people may not be able to attend every game.

This will always favor schools with large fanbases and large stadiums based on the metrics they used. How about average % occupancy of seats at games across the season as a factor?

I'm no mathematician, but even I would say a stadium can't be 110 percent full. If they fit more people in, then their original 100 percent full figure was incorrect.
