A lot of hatin' on Columbus. I suspect that has more to do with people readily recognizing Ohio's other two major cities, Cleveland and Cincy, than anything else. Columbus is a great city and should be nowhere near the bottom of the list.

Columbus would be cool if it wasn't just a huge college town that just keeps annexing adjacent land to puff up its population numbers.

1. There is far more to Columbus than just OSU.
2. Annexation is actually smart. It prevents a city from getting boxed in. This has happened to many of the older cities in which exist on a relatively small area and have seen their growth stagnate. And Columbus has not been annexing nearly as much in the last decade as it has in the past. The focus has bee on rebuilding the downtown. And this is funny coming from someone from Minnesota. Your biggest city has a tiny downtown and miles and miles of sprawl.

Oh the delusional Columbus crowd.

As far as Minneapolis having a "tiny" downtown area, you do realize this information can be found online? That being said, I suggest you do a little research as to where downtown Minneapolis ranks in terms of office space and retail space. While your at it check out satellite images of downtown areas throughout the Midwest.

As far as ranking Midwest cities:
1. Chicago
2. Minneapolis
3. Detroit
4. St. Louis

Doesn't really matter after this.
