I just think he wants to be closer to the Pacers. I don't blame him.

I would not suggest picking a college based on a pro sports team.

If I'm going to add anything, it's this: Don't take in-state schools lightly. Consider them. A lot.
Initially I never thought I'd end up at a state school - currently at UMass - but the costs you'll incur by going to a private school out of state (or even a state school that's out of state) are massive especially in this economic climate. Most good colleges are going to give you a quality education and price should be a key factor.
Are you planning on any post-undergrad pursuits either? If so, you'll definitely want to save as much money as possible. If you're going to get your Bachelor's and nothing further then you don't need to be as frugal but still just keep it in mind.
However, I want to go to graduate school at one of three relatively expensive programs, chances are that could add $80,000 to my debt when I am done if I don't get a great scholarship or something. That means after grad school I could be paying quite a lot of money per month to repay loans. And in this economic climate it is far from certain I'll be able to land a job that would allow me to pay off that kind of debt and maintain
my lifestyle, which at this point I am not even thinking about actually improving my lifestyle even with a grad degree and the money that can follow.
