We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

Tuscaloosa is bigger than college station I believe. I do hate the lack of whataburger and don't understand it, but the town is around 100,000 people with 35,000 students added on. It's no metropolis, but neither is c-stat. Don't get me wrong, I love college station, but it's odd to say in reference to Tuscaloosa that "there's nothing there". What is in college station that qualifies as "something there" other than whataburger?
Edit - actually just checked college stations population and it's 97,000 so basically the same but y'all do have an extra 15,000 students. The two areas are also similar because we have Northport, which is basically our Bryan.

you also said you were biased when you put auburn first.
I label cities around colleges into three groups:
1. The "College Town": The city that lives 100% because of the school nearby.
2. The "College with a City": The city that thrives due to the college but would be a lot less large without it.
3. The "City with a College": The city that honestly is cool with or without the school. (e.g.: Atlanta to GA Tech)
Tuscaloosa is option 2 IMO.
To break it down further:
1. The city loves the college students.
2. The city hates the college students (IE: Tuscaloosa).
3. The city is indifferent towards the college students.

I see Waco, TX is underrated ITT.
I haven't been to a whole lot of college campus's. So I can't comment intelligently on the campus's I haven't been to:
1) Athens, GA
2) Clemson, SC
3) Auburn, AL
4) Blacksburg, VA
5) Knoxville, TN
This is all I can list for small town college's. I refuse to list Tuscaloosa and I'm not sure if Gainesville is considered a college town. I imagine there are some nice towns in Cali or in the Rockies, but I have never been out that way. Btw, I don't need to have a town full of bars to have a good time. Whether or not the town had a bunch of bars had nothing to do with my list.
Oh no he didn't
Don't forget about the uncomfortably short shorts and deck shoes.
1a. Ann Arbor
And are people serious about South Bend? ND's campus is nice, but that city is a dump.
Ann Arbor women are ugly. Therefore Ann Arbor cannot be in this discussion.

I cannot believe you guys do not have Norman, Ok on your lists. Hell, we have our very own casino...lol
George's Bar is the only thing worth visiting Waco for. Also, maybe a good Texas country music concert, here and there.
