“The atmosphere is not here.”

It will probably come as no surprise to you, but at its current pace, home field advantage is at its lowest level in fifteen years.

Home-field advantage has been altered — at least reduced — for sure in 2020. Four weeks into the season, home teams are winning only 59.5% of their games (47-32). If that number holds, it would mark the worst winning percentage by home teams since 2005 (59.3%).

Ironically, the year following that (2004) marked the best home winning mark of all-time (65.3%), according to the NCAA, which has kept the statistic since 1966. In fact, home-field advantage has improved this century with the top 10 all-time coming since 2000.

    My reading comprehension might be off, but wouldn’t “the year following that” be 2006 not 2004?

  2. I would think a lack of cupcakes is going to contribute greatly to a lower home winning percentage

    Mike Leach said the cardboard cutouts looked like something out of the Twilight Zone or The Outer Limits. Pretty good analysis.
