Boulder best Pac-12 town according to Athlon Sports

I go to most football games. The guys choosing Boulder as their number 1 obviously come from cities like Dallas and Kansas City. 

 

1.  University of Utah. Great fans, great restaurants, bars, great stadium, easy access from the airport. I also love the fact that the train stops at the stadium. 

2. ASU: Close to the airport, great restaurants in the area and the weather is usually good.

3. Stanford: Great stadium. Easy to get a ticket to the game at the door. 

4. Cal: Easy access from Oakland airport. Beautiful area.

5. Oregon: Good fans, good tailgating.

6. Washington: I have not been to their new stadium yet but the old one rocked. Loved the location.Seattle has the worst parking in America.

7. Colorado: Nothing that exciting. Pretty place.

8. Arizona: Decent fans. Good access from airport

9. Pullman: Pullman sucks to find. The weather always sucks while I'm there. 

10. Corvallis: Corvallis sucks too.

11. USC: They are the rival.

12. UCLA: As a fan of the Bruins, I prefer to watch them anywhere but the Rose Bowl. Fans show up late, leave early, parking is a nightmare, sight lines are horrible. I hope we end up playing at the new stadium in L.A. but highly doubt it. We are also the only school that does not have their stadium on campus.

I would much rather go to Pullman than to Tucson or Tempe.  

 

And come on.  Grouping USC and UCLA under Los Angeles is a joke.  USC is in the downtown surrounded by South Central Los Angeles, aka, the place you don't want to be. UCLA is surrounded by Beverly Hills, Bell Air, and West Hollywood. HUUUGE difference. 

I agree with that assessment. However, UCLA's stadium is not on campus and is a nightmare place to play. Most people that come to see UCLA never get to see the campus unless it is for hoops.

Eugene has been called Berkeley North, home of the University of California at Eugene, since the late 60s. 

 

5 minutes in downtown Boulder, and you're reminded of Eugene, instantly. Boulder is Eugene's sister city.

Even though I hate them with passion, I'd say one of the best road trips to make is definitely Seattle, especially when there's nice weather. I'm biased since it's a rivalry game, but you cant go wrong with Lake Washington in the back drop playing against a team that has a bunch of pussies for a fan base.

Before I was married, Tempe was my favorite. Lot's of cute, easy girls. 

 

Yeah, and a shit ton of STD's, as well. You know ASU is like #1 for STD's in America, right? Little to no doubt that they have some of the most beautiful women on campus, but get outside of Tempe, and it's a wannabe Orange County.

If I was in my 20s, Tempe would get the nod.

 

 

From a college kids perspective, I agree.  I somewhat remember my trip to Tempe and the madness that is Mill Avenue.  I agree, some of the hottest, dumbest girls you will ever meet but as my friend used to say, 'You're probably gonna need to double wrap it tonight."

I think you've misinterpreted, or perhaps didn't read, the article linked by the OP.  The topic was, "best college towns" not best college venues.  Pasadena is not a college town, Westwood is and Westwood is a good time.

We drove out to Boulder for the last game.  Wasn't all that great. The fans acted the same as they do in Laramie. They hate Utah because they hate Mormons. They don't know why they hate Mormons, they just hate Mormons. 

 

I have not been to Tuscon and California for a road trip but I will some day.

 

1. Seattle is really beautiful and the fans were pretty nice. 

2. ASU is a great college atmosphere.

3. Stanford was one of my favorites.

4. Eugene was nice. The weather was horrible and foggy on game day. 

5. Pullman. I flew into Spokane and experienced the worst highway system in America. Apparently pot holes must be cool in Eastern Washington. Best Appleby's restaurant ever said nobody. 

6. Boulder is pretty.

7. I love Southern California. Enjoyed playing at USC and UCLA but the stadiums need help. 

9. Corvallis is ..... Corvallis. Wasn't a bad town. Don't see myself going back anytime soon. Nothing wrong, just nothing to write home about.

I know people getting turned away from Cal with a 4.0.

 

There's a close family friend of mine who works in the admissions department at Cal and said, "If the school went strictly off of merit, 99% of the students would be Asian females with a 4.3 GPA and perfect SAT/SAT2 scores ."

Sorry about that.  The people who created that South Park cartoon went to CU so that anti-Mormon attitude wouldn't have been a surprise.  I do wish my fellow Buff fans would realize that Ute fans have been treated by BYU fans as poorly as CU fans have been treated by Husker fans and called it even.

 

I even rooted for the Rams against Utah not because of the Mormon connection but I couldn't stand seeing an Utah team beat a Colorado team.  There's also the friendly rivalry of the ski resorts in both states.  When I see the Jazz on the Nuggets schedule that night or Real Salt Lake on the Rapids schedule that night, I'm snap into my anti-Utah hate.  You don't realize how much it is eating at me that the Buffs lost to the Utes in football and both times in MBB this recent season.  I hope CU pays the Utes back this upcoming season.  My dislike for Utah dates back to the Karl Malone-John Stockton days for the Jazz and as a Nuggets fan.

 

You can count me as one fan that really appreciates having Utah as CU's rival.  I thought the "Rumble in the Rockies" label was lame...I'd be happy with a ski boot as a rivalry trophy between the two schools in football.  I think people will really see the rivalry come around once CU comes around in football which might happen as soon as this year.  And without that Mormon hate since that is something that should be directed at BYU instead.

 

GO BUFFS!

UTAH SUX!
