    Athlon put together the following panel:


    Anthony Herron, ESPN/Pac-12 Network
    Pat Forde, Yahoo!
    Scott Wolf, LA Daily News
    Dennis Dodd, CBSSports
    Dan Rubenstein, SB Nation
    Stewart Mandel, Fox Sports
    George Schroeder, USA Today
    Ryan Abraham, USCFootball.com
    Bryan Fischer, NFL.com
    Braden Gall, Athlon Sports/SiriusXM

    and Boulder crushed it.

    Having Denver nearby probably helps. Most of the cities in the survey are either small towns located a long way from major urban areas, or are in major urban areas themselves. Boulder does a nice job of combining the two.

    The Pac 12 has some great locations.

    Having said that, why was this even a debate? Duh.

    I'm more interested in the panel's conclusions regarding the most morally casual coeds. Perhaps that can graph the towns on the "willingness/hotness" scale.

    This is much higher praise than being number one in the big 12. That was really just a two man race.

    ok. I've been there once and struggle a little with that, but it is a good college town. I agree it's better than any of the other original Big 8 schools.

    if Austin qualifies, what the fucjk is their definition of "town". by reckoning, calling Boulder a "town" is a stretch. Austin has close to a million bodies living there.

    Edit: well, screw it, apparently Seattle and LA are towns also. I guess in Anthalon's world, the only US city is New York.

    Don't get so hung up on the word town. Just use destination of it makes more sense in your head.

    Here this from the article:

    So we had some fun asking Pac-12 experts to rank their favorite Pac-12 LOCATIONS

    If publishing a piece related to institutions of higher education, basic understanding of vocabulary is not an unreasonable expectation.

    Considering these same "experts" said this
    when ranking our coaching job, I don't care for their opinions. I think they live in 2012..

    If we see the passion return in the student section, we could easily move up that list.

    Four voters didn't even have Boulder on their ballot? Assholes! And unlike the Pac 12 poll, LA got no love, haha.
