A few days ago, we posted a Buckshot talking about declining football attendance across the board, and one of the more concerning points of data showed that non-OSU college football is struggling (at best) to keep up with big brother.

Cincinnati is the Ohio school that fares second best, bringing in an average of just over 29,000 fans per game in 2012, a 10% decrease from the following year. Other Ohio schools are as follows:

SCHOOL ATTENDANCE % CHANGE FROM 2011
Ohio U 21,844 +10
Toledo 20,552 -7
Kent State 17,880 +54
Bowling Green 15,632 +4
Miami (OH) 14,733 -9
Akron 9,275 -41

None of this is particularly encouraging, and it's food for thought about how the most powerful college football program in the Midwest (and maybe the country) effects its more local brethren.
