It seems the Carolina pairs are slightly ahead of the others. Way to go Carolina. If only that transferred to our football capabilities.

Slightly ahead of the TN cities, but significantly ahead of the GA cities.

Now if you're talking about college football, things aren't so bad.

That definitely would have been a great comparison. I would opt for the Birmingham and Huntsville. This pair would have been economically head and shoulders above the others. Birmingham alone is $50 billion.

^That's why it would have been an unfair comparison. Birmingham's metro by itself is 1.1 million. Now Mobile/Huntsville would have been a closer comparison, or perhaps Sarasota/Lakeland for some Florida representation.

I would like that Florida comparison. Outside of Florida's big 4, I don't know too much about the other metros.

Yeah, you don't hear too much about them, but they have lots to offer. You don't even really hear about the cities that play second fiddle within larger metro areas, like Fort Lauderdale and St. Petersburg, but they also hold their own.

WS/Greensboro. Hands down. Others are alright, second would be Chattanooga/Knoxville.

I don't think any of them win "hands down" over the others, although they all certainly have their strengths.

The Greensboro/Winston-Salem pairing works much better for NC than Greenville and Asheville. The Greenville metro is less than 200K, and Asheville's is just over 400K.

If the reference is to Greenville, SC, then it should be noted that only cities within the same state were paired up. That should have been obvious.
