If you're ever in Sarasota, you'll see way more Buckeyes license plates than Gators, Noles or Canes.

That's right -- a huge following in Sarasota/Manatee County. Talk about taking over places we have 3 game watch locations - Captain Curts on Siesta Key, Lee Roy Selmons on Cooper Creek in East County and Mannatee's Sports Grill in NW Bradenton. We get 250 - 300 people each week between the 3 locations. 
Not surprising at all that ABC would show the game in this area

I would say way more Gators first, then OSU and FSU tie, and finally Miami

This is entirely Urban Meyer's fault.

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

Florida = Ohio State Country

And when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of boooooooooze!! And we'll drink to old Ohio 'till we wobble in our shoes.

I wonder how that coverage map changes if the B1G adds a team from NC and a team from GA....

I see my fair share of Buckeye flags in Tampa and Clearwater. There were about 20 OSU fans in a local Buffalo Wild Wings for the FAMU game. We've invaded FL like we did for the Cal game. :)

Thank you TV Gods - We do not have to listen to the grating voice and Mehhh analysis of one Beth (Voice Like Nails on Chalkboard) Mowens.

Also spared from Take a Breath Beth here in Maryland.

My wife, who could give two sh!ts about the college game (but totally doesn't interfere with my insanity), even thinks she's horrible.

I cannot imagine what would happen if the Bucks beat the Miserable Muschamps for a NC.  Not that Will can get his bunch there but wow ... Urban versus his old team, beating the team that has made our lives miserable ... a state full of Ohio State transplants.  That would be some kind of fun!

When Urban Meyer was hired prior to the Gator Bowl, I was sooo hoping they'd let him coach against Florida...
In retrospect, the amazing recruiting work he was able to do during that time might make up for my disappointment...  just a little.

I live in Seminole, which is Pinellas county.
I see Ohio State plates, and logos on the back of cars everywhere down here.
There is a bar down the road from my house that shows every Ohio state game!

So true.  I live in the Southwest.  Ever heard of 'Buckeye, AZ?'   We ARE everywhere!

Sorry Alaska and Hawaii.  Apparently, you don't get to be part of Buckeye Nation.  :-(

Real fans stay for Carmen.
