ESPN asks the question: which season are you most looking forward to (NFL vs College football)?
Here's a map showing the voting trends around the nation. Very stark contrast between the Northeast and the rest of the country.
- New England is the only region with a greater than 80-20 preference for NFL
- The Bible Belt is more excited for College than NFL (as you likely expected)
- Florida is 55-45 in favor of the NFL
- Alabama is the only state with 80-20 preference for College football (also expected)
Though not scientific, it is pretty interesting IMO.
The biggest question I see from this: why does the ACC covet the NYC market (evinced by Pitt and Syracuse additions) if merely 18% of respondents are more excited for College over the NFL?
