I am guessing UK basketball is well above most of the football schools not in the SEC on that list. Coach Cal has over a million twitter followers and BBN is know for a level of loyalty only a Bama fan can appreciate.
Tennessee and Auburn are lower on the list due to the methodology and their ticket sales in the past 2 years.
Some might argue that a half-filled stadium shows that the fans aren't that hardcore. But, most who pay close attention to SEC football would probably agree that, considering the seasons Auburn and Tennessee had last year, the fact that there were even that many fans in attendance is a testament to those teams' fans.
