    ESPN: 12th Straight Year Bham #1 Most-Viewed Market for CFB

    Shows how hard-core we are about watching our football games around here considering the size of the area.

    Bham #1 Viewing Market

    For the 12th consecutive year, Birmingham was the highest-rated metered market for ESPN’s regular-season telecasts, averaging an 8.9 rating, 89 percent higher than second place Greenville’s 4.7 rating.

    We may not play games in Birmingham any more, but B'ham continues to be the College Football Capital of the South (or rather Nation)...

    If Birmingham has so many college football fans, how come UAB has such poor attendance?

    Gamble... which is, outside of the SEC, is a big factor as to why Birmingham has a big viewership number.

    Because they play garbage football. I am a big college football fan and I live in Mobile. I was given tickets to a South Alabama game, I was outside the stadium.

    I went home.

    These want to be cupcake conference extremely poor imitation football welfare programs are not fooling the fans.
