So how does this work?  Your team is behind with seconds left on the clock, 4th and 20+, about to face a devastating, humiliating loss and you say to yourself "I think I need to record my embarrassing reaction to this so I can put it on the internet?"

They're complaining about pass interference but they're getting away with blatant holds every play and on the play they want pass interference the left tackle got away with a false start so the play should have been ruled dead! If they get away with so many holds and false starts in The Game I will come UNGLUED

They tend to be from southern Ohio where I lived for 7 years.  

They call them "Briars", as in from the briarpatch.  They came up from Kentucky and parts south in the early/mid 1900's to work in the now-defunct Ohio auto/components industry.

As 707oxford said, there's a ton of them in Dayton.  They never quite lost the accent.

Rednecks with southern accents saying stupid things about a college-in-name-only team they never attended.

Ohio State really is an SEC team trapped in the Big Ten.

Agree with many of the comments. However, I have lived in Ohio most of my life and almost every alum I know is the complete opposite of any stereotypical, "rub it in Buckeye" fan. They love their team, but usually are not dicks about it. Like anything else, the loudest fans set the tone. I still say the vast majority of OSU fans are pretty cool. All schools have a small percentage of asshole fans, including us. I do think OSU's is a little bigger percentage of their fan base, perhaps an effect of only having one FBS team in the state (with no Sparty, we would attract ALL of the state's die hard assholes instead of just some). In the end, I hesitate to paint with one brush. Now Beat State!

Nah. I'm from the area and there are plenty of people with terrible grammar and sort of a trashy dialect (e.g. use them instead of those) in Wayne County, but they have distinctly Inland Northern accents. Their speech has maybe a couple characteristics in common with Southern English, but they'd never be mistaken for having true Southern accents.
