Schools just missing the cut, according to the account, were Michigan State (East Lansing), Alabama (Tuscaloosa) and Tulane (New Orleans).
Shockingly, schools like Michigan (Ann Arbor), Madison (Wisconsin), Chapel Hill (North Carolina), Boulder (Colorado), Tallahassee (Florida State) and Gainesville (Florida) were omitted from the list.
With that said, the list is just inaccurate. Clearly this is the opinion of this account and naming “best of anything” is entirely subjective, but how can one put Orlando, Florida as a “better college town” than Gainesville?
Ohio State, Arizona State, Tennessee, Nebraska, Georgia, LSU and Penn State all have incredible campuses and a rabid, passionate fanbase, but what exactly makes them a “better college town” than Morgantown, West Virginia?
Mountaineer fans know the truth, that there is no place better to be on a Saturday afternoon than Morgantown, West Virginia.
