UNC: ONLY 93,722 FEWER SPRING FOOTBALL FANS THAN OHIO STATE

So, the Buckeyes set a record for the largest crowd at the Scarlet & Gray spring football game with 95,722 fans, while the University of North Carolina (the home of the 2009 NCAA Division 1 Men’s Basketball National Champions) draws 2,000.

That must of tickled Coach Butch somethin’ special!

Yike, even Duke drew more fans for their spring football game.

The Hokies came closest to drawing something that vaguely imitated a real game closing out spring football practice on Saturday with 41,000 showing up for a scrimmage. The Hokies topped Florida State's turnout of 36,000 for its spring game.

Attendance at a spring game indicates devotion, or a lack of alternatives. Either way, here's how the ACC schools fared in the spring:

Virginia Tech 40,000
Florida State 36,000
Clemson 24,000
N.C. State 21,075
Maryland 10,323
Georgia Tech 8,500
Virginia 8,000
Duke 4,162
UNC 2,000

Miami, Wake Forest and Boston College did not give attendance figures for their respective spring games.
