I randomly came across this a few minutes ago on facebook and figured you guys would appreciate it as much as I do:
USA Today did a survey of 50,000+ readers and we got voted as the second best college football town in America! Obviously, I think we deserve #1 and wish we got it, but second place isn't bad at all.
Here's a summary article that facebook took me to: Blacksburg Named #2 Best College Football Town in America. Within that, there is a link that will take you to the USA Today article which highlights Wisconsin (the winner).
From (our nominator) Rece Davis "Nestled in the Appalachian Mountains in southwestern Virginia, Blacksburg is a beautiful college town setting. Tailgate parties dot virtually every open space around Lane Stadium, and there's a real sense of hospitality toward visitors - at least until the game starts. The Hokies roaring onto the field to the strains of Metallica's heavy metal song Enter Sandman makes kickoff seem almost anticlimactic. It is one of the best scenes in college football."
