Power Ranking College Football's Best Fan Bases: Post-Spring Game Ed.

One of the great debates in college football is one that isn't even about the teams taking the field every Saturday.

No, if there is one argument fans love to get into, it's about which schools have the best and most rabid fan bases.

But, how do you judge who has the best fan base?

Is it consecutive sellouts at home? Is it the number of tailgaters before a game? Is the decibel level in the stadium when the opposing team is facing a fourth-and-short?

Or, should the devotion level of fans be measured by looking at their attendance of what is pretty much a meaningless event: the spring football game?

Although the game itself doesn't really mean much, there's something to be said about fans coming to the stadium to watch their team despite the season not starting for months.

Is this best way of measuring the quality of college football's fan bases? Probably not. But it does help.

So, here are the top 10 fan bases in college football based on spring game attendance in 2010.

Note: Some schools, notably USC and Oregon, haven't yet played their spring games. Also, weather conditions for spring games weren't taken into account. For example, both Oklahoma and Notre Dame dealt with rainy conditions and this may have had an effect on their spring game attendance.
