    another week without Robin Meade to start my day and I'm finding myself watching Morning Joe with my breakfast and coffee now.

    Today they had Steve Rattner, who did some data mining on college football. we've had posts similiar, but it's an off week, so it was either post this or start a thread on CS-Mines (which I might do also).


    anyway,

    1st slide: college football popularity by county/state. uses facebook likes of local college team as data source. 'Bama and Nebraska are the most passionate and yes, Colorado looks like the "pro sports state" most of us assume it to be. The contrast between Minnesota and Wisconsin is interesting (a testament of what winning will do for you).

    2nd slide: rate of change in HS football participation by red vs blue state (based on who they voted for in Presidential election in 2012). Overall decline in participation, mostly in blue states. Red states show an increase. Allbuffs speculation as to underlying reasons behind the correlation? I'm going with a theory of "liberal families have wussie dads who allow mom's concerns about the kids' potential football injuries rule the household" until someone presents data to the contrary.

    3rd slide: college team football spend by current AP ranking. my observation is that those Texas private religious-based schools like to throw money at their teams.

    Re slide 2: left leaning folk have higher priorities on art, academic achievement and international news, and less emphasis on sports. When they do participate in sports They tend to enjoy sports like soccer, individual sports (running/climbing) or lacrosse more than football.

    so basically, you're agreeing with my theory

    Short read: Red States still working to dumb down the electorate.

    Be interested to see the red state / blue state participation rates compared to population shifts. Many red states are in the south and southwest which have seen significant population growth.

    Pretty sure the public education machine has the market already corned. (That was a joke - this isn't the politics thread)

    I forgot driving Subarus as part of the profile. You can't fit shoulder pads in the back of a Subaru.

    As was mine. Although I don't get the 'corned' reference. Must be an Iowa thing.

    I think you're wrong. Snow has shoulder pads sewn into his power suit.

    VA and PA seem underrepresented. KY is carry-over from basketball, I'm sure. Same with NC.

    And, again, CO .. :huh:

    Edit: meant KY carry over from basketball

    Which one do you think he used? Facebook has three things come up that have only the words "college football" in them. The numbers where people clicked "like" are quite underwhelming in terms of a national sampling.

    Maybe I misread it, I was a bit tipsy. I thought it was clicking "like" for a local athletics program, i.e. "Penn State athletics" instead of "Penn State football" and so forth.
