Don't confuse him with facts

You missed GT at #42.

But attendance does not explain why the B1G is so bad, seeing as they own #1, 2, 4 and 10.

But even if we go back to the original premise which was in fact, they care more and invest more, we can make an even more lucid argument with budgetary facts. Annual spending per football athlete in the conferences as follows:

SEC: $309,985
B1G: $287,154
ACC: $229,679

The SEC 'cares' $80K more per athlete per year about football than the ACC does. That's about a third more.

GT spends abut $155K per football athlete per year. Well below even the ACC average. History is just that.
