All I know is this...If a team such as Hofstra played in a small town/city here in FLorida...Those games would get sold out. High School and college Football is HUGE down here in the south, one of the reasons why teams such as Miami, FLorida, USF and FLorida State ALL have elite talent on the team, year in and year out. Those players on these FLorida teams are pretty much all from FLorida, some are H.S students from Georgia at times.
FL, GA, TX, AL...These southern states live and die for Football...You see little kids playing Football 24/7 when you leave the house, you really never see them playing Baseball. Basketball is pretty big down here, but NOTHING like Football.
Honestly, NY and other Northern States are huge on Baseball and Basketball, Football? Not so much.
As far as the NFL goes...Giants, Bills, Jets, Eagles and Steelers fans are as loyal as they come, as good as they get. Fan bases such as Bucs, Dolphins, Falcons, Saints and Jaguars cant compete with those up north fans but as far as H.S and College Football goes, it's not even close, the SOuth LOVES it.
