Not even honorable mention???

Kind of a slant towards the Big 10 and SEC. However I dispute Atlanta being on it. It is only good because of the SEC Championship game.

Yes they do. We were in Utah for the Winter Olympics. Not hard to find alcohol. Mormons are a large group there but it isn't  a third world country. They do have all the standard vices.

Pretty funny, considering almost half of the counties in Arkansas are dry counties

Agreed.  Should have been higher, plus they could have found some more attractive scenery at Ole Miss to include.

However, Ann Arbor at #1 = Poll Fatally Flawed.

It's Bleacher Report.  Why anyone would take their ridiculous "slideshows" seriously is beyond me.

Linking to Bleacher Report should result in user banned, account deleted.  lol

There are plenty more, but you get the point.

You're missing the point here. A distinct difference between college town, in general, and college football towns. Being this is a football message board and all.

There are 6 state capitals on that list (7 if you count Boise's honorable mention) and several other large cities that aren't even college towns. When y'all stop reading Bleacher Report articles, your blood pressure will decrease.

That List is a joke. Miami is an Honorable Mention??? I would love to heat the justification on that. I live on Fort Lauderdale and have been to several Miami games. I have never seen Sunlife full even for the Florida State games. And the area known as the "grove" where all the college student hangout is a joke. If Stillwater and Manhatten get Honorable mentions so should Fayetteville. Athens Ga is a pretty BA town though and spot on in this list.

Fayetteville not on the list boosts the accuracy of the article a tad.

I could be wrong, but I generally associate "college town" with the quality of their football gameday atmosphere. Obviously, there's more to it than that, but that seems like a major official. Perhaps they used a different set of factors. I do know that the tailgating in Fayetteville is lacking.

I have a sister that is Mormon and lives in Provo and have visited her many times.
