This is why there are always Packers, Yankees, Nebraska, etc at stadiums around the country.
Missouri has no fans outside of the state. That's just a fact. After the first trip to "Florida" you will see a huge dropoff in people actually getting on planes to go places for football games.
Just how it works.
Interesting theory. Why don't you try booking a hotel in Knoxville for 9/15/2012 and let me know how that works out. While you're at it, try booking one in Baton Rouge on 11\3\2012.
There should be plenty available since the Gator and Tide fans won't be making the trip.
