I'll go with Boulder. Truly a beautiful city, but I didn't like the vibe, so to speak, of the place. It seemed to me that Boulder was (and presumably still is) mainly populated with "yippies"-- hippie/yuppie hybrids.

Given the choices, the choice is clear.

We should vote on the worst Big XII south college town. Plenty of competition there, with College Station, Lubbock, Stillwater, and Waco to choose from.

Socialist Boulder wins the vote of liberal Lawrence. Go figure!

does anyone know what publication ranked us in the top 10? I work with a lot of emaw's and it would be nice to have on my wall!

Norman, OK would be mine! But only if I had too, it's fun and all the Oklahoman's are nice peeps.

Can we get a link to the rankings?

Boulder was my favorite town until it burned down.

Cedar Falls, Iowa, as soon as the University of Northern Iowa takes Nebraska's spot in the Big 12 North.

And Fargo, North Dakota, home of North Dakota State University, would be a nice addition instead of Boulder.

Boulder, Colorado is absolutely beautiful! My favorite Big XII North town by far. Will have to find another one once they leave for the Pac-10.

Those who voted Columbia...please leave town in shame.
