The seats are empty due to uninteresting games. The problem with the ACC is that only 1 or 2 home games is interesting.
In the SEC, especially in the beginning, every game except Vandy, and maybe Ole Miss, Miss State, would be packed to the edge of the stadium. I guarantee we'd be at capacity for Bama, Auburn, A&M, LSU, Arkansas, Georgia, Tennessess, South Carolina, and Florida. 60% of your possible league opponents are marquee draws. We'd still get UVa which is usually close to full. Lane would be full at 75k just as easily as 66k.
