According to this article by The Sports Examiner (http://www.thesportsexaminer.com/the-ticker-exclusive-u-s-to-try-for-world-univ-games-in-2027-drama-in-russia-over-drive-to-oust-rusada-head-usopc-bill-now-in-house/), the United States is thinking of bidding for the 2027 Summer Universiade. Nothing has been officially announced, but the Sports Examiner article proposed Raleigh-Durham, Houston, Indianapolis, and Austin as possible cities, each with their own unique pros and cons. Competition for this edition could come from Budapest and potentially other cities. Sandwiched between the 2026 World Cup set to take place across the US (and Canada and Mexico) and the 2028 Los Angeles Olympiad, an American 2027 Universiade would certainly be a very interesting prospect.

What do people think? Should the US go for it? Which of the four cities do you think has the best shot? Is there another American city you'd like to see host the Games?

Given these four cities, I'd probably put my faith in Indianapolis or Austin soonest because they would have to build the fewest things. They both have great university/major league sports infrastructure including track and field stadiums and swimming centers. A Universiade could also give the US a dry run for a potential Youth Olympics, most likely in the 2040's.
