What's so special about Ann Arbor for it to be mentioned over and over again? It's a small college town and everything revolves around UofM. I think the better option would be for you to live in royal oak or dt Detroit and commute to Ann Arbor for the games.

Louisville is the south, not the Midwest. Compared to the other cities you mentioned, and to mine as well, it's night and day culturally, demographically, and linguistically. Not to mention, Louisville has experienced the economic boom of the new south (benefited from the reverse migration). I always believed Louisville and Lexington had much more in common with Richmond, Charlotte, Nashville, and Knoxville than its neighboring cities to the north. Finally, most Louisvillians vehemently considers themselves southerners, and always seem to emphasize the differences, rather than similarities, to the Midwest.

What's interesting is that those cities that seem to be getting the most votes are also the cities losing population.

My exact top 5 as well. Ann Arbor, Columbus, and Milwaukee as honorable mentions.

Just visited Ann Arbor for the first time -- very impressed.

They are getting the most votes I think because those cities have the richest culture and are all on the upper end of mid-sized or large in terms of their metro areas. At least for me, being well developed as a metropolitan area greatly increases a city's appeal, especially in the midwest.
