July 19th UPDATE:
Well I decided on Nashville. Atlanta came in second but I just liked Tennessee a lot better. The more I looked into it my $$$ would go further, I liked the landscape better, and I liked the feel of the city better. All the others are still great cities, they just didn't appeal to me like Nashville did. So far I LOVE it up here. If any of y'all are ever in Nashville or Knoxville let me know.
I just accepted a new job offer and my company has offices in all 3 of these cities. I need to pick one to live in.
I've been to all 3 and I like all 3 for numerous personal reasons. On a personal note, if any of you guys live in one of these three or used to, please share your experiences, etc. I'm a suburbs guy so I need to find a suburb of one of these cities to live in, first renting, then buying in a year or 2.
But, which of these 3 cities would you pick IF you still wanted to be able to catch Gator games in person(I still think I should be able to catch most on TV since this is still SEC country). I have a ritual of attending one away game every year so driving a nice distance isn't out but I would like to cut back on that as possible. So if I lived in Nashville I wouldn't want to drive to Auburn but would drive to Knoxville.
