Somewhere out there right now high school athletes all across the United States of America are thinking about and trying to decide where to attend college.
They are asking themselves: "Where do I want to spend the next four years of my life going to college?"
They wonder: "Should I go to the University of Miami or would I be happier in Lincoln, Blacksburg, Norman, Auburn, Tallahassee, Gainesville, Clemson, Ann Arbor, Athens, Columbus, Tuscaloosa, South Bend or Happy Valley?"
Well before you decide to choose any of these other cities or towns somewhere in the middle of some State that is losing population due to mediocre job markets, aging infrastructure and miserable weather don't you think you should consider other options?
Why go to a place like Michigan, South Carolina, Indiana, Ohio or Nebraska when maybe you should be in a better place like South Florida? Maybe you should just watch this short video about beautiful, warm, tropical Miami:
Sure you could go cow tipping in Oklahoma or Nebraska. Or maybe freeze your butt off in South Bend, Columbus or Ann Arbor. Or maybe just do absolutely nothing in some God-forsaken place like Clemson, Gainesville or Tuscaloosa.
Or go to the Florida State Capitol and listen to some politicians talking nonsense in a town without a single professional sports franchise, no beach, bad weather and not even a sliver of diversity.
Or you could go to the University of Miami and find yourself in a seriously cool and happening place. A truly major international city with incredible diversity, hot women, a lot of exciting activities, major concerts and cultural festivals year-round.
The Florida Panthers play here on ice in spite of 80 degree weather year round.
The Miami Marlins play here too and in a brand new retractable roof stadium.
The Miami Dolphins play here in the very same stadium as the Miami Hurricanes.
So when making your choice of where to attend college why compromise if U don't have to?
