    Love how they used a picture of Iowa's ****** mascot holding a flag and for ours holding the Cy-Hawk Trophy. Great stuff.

    We all know it. Glad a little bit of the rest of the world is getting to read about it! Ames is one special place!

    Still looks like the picture for Lawrence, Kansas was also taken in Ames, Iowa.

    They really couldn't take a picture of Lawrence even though they were talking about Lawrence. Some Cyclone love twice in that I guess.

    Re: Yeah Ames....Ranked 2nd Best College Town in America

    Where are they getting these population numbers?

    Iowa City over 150,000? Yeah right.

    Ames around 90,000? I'm thinking no.

    My only guess would be that they are including a lot of the surrounding towns. Still misleading nonetheless.

    Those are MSA numbers. Not misleading at all.

    Wow, this is new on CF. Someone complaining about totally harmless population listings.

    ...and this isnt something new. Some one being a smart ***.

    Either way I just found it odd since I use to live in Ames and now close to the Iowa City area and never once thought of these areas having those population numbers.

    This is correct. You should not be surprised.
