    Today’s announcement ain’t gonna make DaveD or Larry’s day. Any idea either one has of “shutting down the borders” and stopping Dabo’s poaching of multi-starred semi-literates just got even tougher.

    Clemson – The Little Orange Village in The Upstate – was just named America’s #! College Football Town. Tuscaloosa was 2nd.

    Clemson

    Neither Raw-lee, “Chapelboro”, nor Derm made the Top 15, but Chapel Hill was #16.   The criteria was likely skewed involving how “into it” local citizenry get on GameDay…. AND how many mini-golf holes one has in one’s Football Palace.

    “Number of charging stations” was obviously NOT a factor. And despite Larry’s recent tout of “and get a World-Class Education too”, the voters did give an eye-roll and a giggle to Larry for “trying”.

    Anyone who has ever “done a GameDay” in Clemson would not argue it’s selection. ‘Dem folks DO take it pretty seriously but ARE very hospitable to visitors.

    With Princeton and Baton Rouge joining Clemson in the Top Five, a bias towards “Tigers” is obvious.

    Who says SEC football rules? According to a study by WalletHub.com, Clemson, S.C. is the top college football city in America.

    The study took into account a number of metrics:

    “In order to identify the best and worst cities for football fans, WalletHub’s analysts compared the 245 of the largest U.S. cities with at least one college or professional football team based on two key dimensions, ‘Teams & Performance’ and ‘Costs & Fan Engagement.’”

    To see a more detailed explanation, read about the study’s methodology here.

    Not surprisingly, Tuscaloosa, Ala., home of the Alabama Crimson Tide, was the No. 2-ranked college football city, with Michigan State’s East Lansing, Mich. coming in third, Princeton, N.J. coming in fourth and LSU’s Baton Rouge, La. rounding out the top five.

      CH at 16…Pretty cool. It is high time someone took note of 2 of my favorite football traditions:

      Parking Deck tailgates…And aluminum spectators.

        Apparently Millennials dig that stuff. I’m “old school” but then I don’t attend games ANYWHERE any more.

      Raleigh ranks #180. Sounds a little high to me. I guess the data was complete before the practice hangar was finished. Gonna need a bigger hanger now to inch up into that coveted #150 spot now held by West Lafayette In. But Chapel Hill at #16 above Tallahassee,,,Dang. #67 Morehead, KY…Double Dang, WOW!!. Even Buies Creek, NC ranked at #148 is ahead of Raleigh. Don’t worry because Davidson, NC, Blacksburg, Va, Boiling Springs, NC all rank below Raleigh. But Greenville is way ahead of you…and with no IPF. Crap!! “Just the facts mam.” I wouldn’t dare look at the methodology. Why spoil the fun?
