Shouldn't the headline be "Polls show UT ranked #1, Alabama #10"?

Knoxville is also a city in its own right apart from the university. Ball State is the only thing really holding Muncie together, not much else is there.

Its cheaper to live in Knoxville than Johnson City, including housing prices. And it is not nearly as much o a college town as the community support for the university is lacking.
