Don't get me wrong, I just bought tickets to the UGA game, so I like going, but it does have a financial impact, which limits the people going and the advantage.
there are still plenty of people in that stadium on game days
it provides an advantage assuming the talent level is close
also you have to look at the other team - is it Cincy that won't play in front of 50K+ the rest of the year or is it Bama who will play in front of huge crowds every week - if it is Cincy you have an advantage, if Bama not so much
