Hoping to see something that looks like basketball

I mostly agree. Ann Arbor would be pretty big without U Michigan, but it is still dominated by the university and college students. Minneapolis and Seattle aren't dominated by U Minnesota and UW respectively. Boston and Philly have so many colleges the do have a college culture in part, but still not like a college town.Portland, ME is a cool little city but how is it a college town?
To me a college town is a place that has lots of character and things to do but that wouldn't have any of that if the college wasn't located there. For example, would Ann Arbor or Chapel Hill be more than little hick towns without the state universities there? What would Amherst/Northampton, MA be without the colleges there? Boston and Philadelphia would still be very big cities without the colleges there.
