Among other data that Phil Steele embeds in his 328 pages of single spaced type is a rating for the strength of playing at each school’s home field. In essence, it’s the number of points that each home crowd is worth.
I’m glad the guys at RazorBloggers Network took the trouble to put the data in a handy chart:
|Rank||School||Home Field Edge||2007 Avg Attendance|
It would be nice to see a breakdown of LSU’s home edge during the day versus night. And I guess those Tennessee fans need to work a little harder. First in the conference in attendance (by a wide margin), but tied for fourth in home field edge isn’t that impressive.
At least Vandy’s number isn’t negative.
