Some people just may not get the big deal.
Ohio State fans, however, do.
The Buckeyes’ annual spring game is quite the event at. No, it’s not a real game. But regardless, Ohio Stadium gets more packed than any other school for the game every single season.
This past year, leading into the 2017 campaign, Ohio State drew a crowd of 80,134 — setting the all-time record in spring game attendance. Going forward, Jimbo Fisher wants to change that.
Fisher, who has been the leader at Florida State for the past eight seasons, signed a 10-year, $75 million contract this offseason to become the new coach at Texas A&M. Now, he wants the Aggies to be the new leader in spring game attendance.

For what it’s worth, the Aggies had 21,000 fans come out for its game in 2017.
