Who’s Ready for Some College Football?

Please note that the chart below colors states based on their percentile rank of share of Twitter voice for college football (e.g. Alabama has the highest percent of tweets that are college football related, thus its percentile rank is 100).

The start of the college football season is less than two months away.  Fans have been waiting for the 2013 season to kickoff ever since the Alabama-Notre Dame game ended (which was in the 1st quarter).  The chart above is a Geo-based Twitter analysis of conversation about college football by state in the last six months.  We essentially rank states by the percentage of all Twitter conversations in that state that mention college football.  The top five states are: 1) Alabama, 2) Mississippi, 3) Tennessee, 4) South Carolina, and 5) West Virginia.
