RE: OT Americas best college towns.
Z, do not know why the guy had to try and rain on a parade. But I guess when you have no parade????????
He said something about having done nothing and being nobody yet I seem to recall this:
2000 CWS, ECU came to the Tigue something about their stadium not ready. Yea, they lost that to us too. In fact the Cajuns owned the Carolinas that year, beating no. 1 South Carolina after ECU getting to the CWS, and then ending the Clemson run in the CWS.

Why because UT is there? I'm sure Austin is awesome, if I were a liberal. You spend anytime time in Lafayette, ever?

No because it is the live music capital of the world, has a legendary party scene, and has awesome places to eat that can cook more than one type of food. Don't get me wrong I spent a week in Lafayette had a lot of fun and got my cajun food fix, especially at johnson's something forgot the name, but it doesn't hold a candle to Austin.

If you think Lafayette only has one great type of food you should have asked some who lives here. That's like saying Austin only has good Barbecue.

Godzilla only knows Japanese food, men, women, children burned and squashed. She can't help not knowing good eating.

I just thought I'd share something I thought was pretty cool. Did not know it would bring on the whine fest.

Seriously, I am truly sorry that Monroe didnt make the list.

Bozeman is bigger than Moscow, by population at least. Bozeman has 39,000 while Moscow has 25,000 people. Unless you counting Pullman, Wa. as part of Moscow. Don't get me wrong, I love it in Moscow. It's in the prettiest part of the State.

Most people don't realize how pretty Idaho is if they have just been to Boise. 30 min out of Boise and it gets beautiful in the mountains.

I miss the swamps of Louisiana, but I love the Idaho mountains and whitewater.

I can't wait until the Cajuns play Idaho in Moscow. I will be there for sure. The Cajuns play Boise St. this year in Boise, while Boise is a pretty city, it's in the desert part of Idaho and it definitely isn't a college town, when they couldn't sellout there small stadium being ranked as high as they were. Boise is a pretty city to visit, definitely.

I just hope the fans that do make the trip up here to Boise this year will realize Boise is on the foothills of the Rockies in the high desert and that the rest of the State is alot different.

The point I'm trying to make is just north of Boise, once you get in the mountains, it is awesome. I just dont want them to think the Moscow area is like Boise and dont go to the Idaho games in Idaho.

I second this! And I actually spent some great drunken nights in Greenville when my brother was in school there. Great atmosphere on fall Saturdays too. Downtown is fun, but you definitely have to be careful what street you walk down afterwards.
Appfan was right, those really are the only three college towns in NC. Asheville is similar to a college town as far as culture goes, but with hipsters and aging hippies instead. If it was a list of best towns to hang out in, I'd definitely put it on there! But UNCA is a school of about 3,000 students, and not even on the radar in Asheville.

Of course we kind of got some easy teams to beat teams transitioning to the AAC, SDSU, ECU, and of course the never to be overlooked TOOlame GreenRipple.
We won our last bowls so losing our last 4 is a lie. And besides y'all our Bowl losses came to Arkansas Kentucky Maryland USF and Marshall. With wins over Ohio. Boise State and Texas Tech this century in bowls. But don't let facts get in the way of a good story.
