Football Hoosiers land top prospect

Gunnier Kiel, the #1 HS QB in the country, has chosen to taken his talents to Bloomington. Gunner Kiel Outsiders may see this as somewhat shocking, given that IU has never landed anyone near as good as Gunner. But it shouldn't be all that surprising to those who've been monitoring the process since Day 1. After receiving scholarship offers from Notre Dame, Michigan, Alabama, Oklahoma, USC and other elite programs, the Columbus, IN native decided to stay close to home (and play alongside his brother Dusty). The whole scenario is eerily familiar to another commitment the Hoosiers received a year ago: Cody Zeller. Both athletes were highly-rated, both are from southern Indiana, and both are the youngest of 3 brothers that all garnered much hype. After Cody's verbal, a domino effect was created that saw Indiana land multiple blue-chip prospects in basketball. Lets hope for the same result in football.

Indy ranked #1 in Jobs & Affordable Housing

Finding a city with affordable housing isn't too difficult, as long as you're willing to settle for low-income wages, high crime and high unemployment. Finding a booming city with a great job market is ideal, if you can afford to live there. Indianapolis combines both factors better than any other place in America.
With an average cost of living well below the national average, you can find a large but affordable home in any of the surrounding suburbs: Greenwood, Plainfield, Avon, Brownsburg, Zionsville, Carmel, Fishers, Noblesville, etc - all just a short commute to downtown Indy. Or if you prefer to live in the city - ranked by Forbes as one of the safest in America - Indy boasts the nation's longest and busiest greenway (Monon Trail) stretching from downtown to Westfield. Indy is also home of the nationally renowned Children's Museum, the largest sporting event in the world (500), the 2012 Superbowl, NCAA headquarters, Mens & Womens Final Fours, BigTen Championships, and also dubbed the Amateur Sports Capital of the World.
