USA Today named Madison, Wisconsin the greatest college football town in America.

USA Today’s For The Win section wrote the following:

For college football fans, Madison, Wisconsin, is the perfect place to visit. During his successful gubernatorial campaign in 1978, Lee Sherman Dreyfus said, “Madison is 30 square miles surrounded by reality.” (The city is actually bigger than that.)

Dreyfus was being acerbic, but he as also correct. Madison is a fun place. There are great bars, restaurants, and a vibrant tailgating scene. It may be cold this time of year, but that shouldn’t stop you. Plus: the Badgers are undefeated this year.

Do I ever get tired of winning? Sometimes I think I might, but then I just get more news like this. It never gets old.

Of course Madison is the best football city in America. You can sling a football in any direction and hit a dozen bars and scores of hot Midwestern women. A Fall Saturday in Madison might be the closest we ever get to Heaven on this planet. The best people, an incredible team, plenty of booze, plenty of women and people who just want to win.

It doesn’t get much better than that. Shoutout to USA Today for knowing what’s up, and props to myself for helping to build the legendary culture that got us to where we are today.
