This is an automatic indicator that someone is not even remotely sports savvy. I’ve heard several middle-aged women do this on a regular basis. It just really annoys me for some reason. It’s a pet peeve of mine. Get the damn school’s name right.

Ok. Rant over

People also say it thinking they are funny or cutting down OSU. Stupid.

It is to an extent. ULL prefers to be called Louisiana and leave off the rest of their name

It's not a thing for FSU, but it absolutely is for OSU. Their scoreboard in Ohio Stadium referred to them as simply Ohio for many, many, many years.

Lived in Florida 35 years, never once heard FSU referred to as Florida. Get your point though 100%.

You probably won’t hear it Florida because people there clearly know the difference between the two.

I heard it from several women in Louisiana.

It’s on the Ohio that Frank Solich coached for not being relevant enough to claim their own name…

People (mostly really stiff news outlets) referring to Ole Miss as Mississippi is both technically correct and an excellent way to rile up the douchebags.
