Syracuse Is The Most Tournament-Obsessed College In The Nation

via www.csmonitor.com

But then again, you already knew that. This time, it's scientifically-proven.

Mike Dang over at Bundle decided to figure out which school is March Madness's most tournament-obsessed colleges. Check out their theorem below:

Bundle set out to determine how 25 colleges stacked up with their March Madness obsessions, and rather than blindly determining who's more bursting with pride (trust us, they're all equally spirited), we decided to put the money where their mouths are.

So: We dove into our data and examined which colleges were spending more at bars, restaurants, and travel (to possibly see the games live) during the first two weeks of the tournament, the amount the college spends on its basketball program and the amount of revenue the program hauled in last year per undergraduate student, and average attendance for each of the basketball games last year.

Wouldn't you know it, Syracuse comes in a No. 1 overall. Our key to victory seemed to be consistency across all the categories. The Orange only show up in the Top 5 of one category, attendance.

What does it all mean? I have no idea. But anytime we can beat UConn in the first round of a bracket, I'm all for it. Syracuse fans, just keep doing what you're doing. Cause you're doing it right.
