Lol. Missouri doesn’t have an SEC school.


While they are not competitive in the SEC, they get a share of what the others win.

I’d say until you go south of Lake City. Maybe Gainesville. I lived in southern Illinois and it was a lot more “southern” than anywhere I’ve lived in Central Florida.


I see you've never been to Polk County. It's pretty redneck, with a big dose of meth.

re: Texas and Florida are the South
Colin Woodward’s American Nations has a compelling split of North America into various “nation regions”. He agrees with you that Houston, Dallas and most of Florida are all Deep South. But San Antonio is El Norte and New Orleans and Lafayette are New France.

Most of Oklahoma goes Deep South and I believe Kentucky is Greater Appalachia.






Edit: looks like Dallas made Greater Appalacia too

A lot of central Florida up to the panhandle is more redneck than backwoods Livingston Parish.

re: Texas and Florida are the South
I grew up in South Fl and now live in the Jax area. IMO “the south” and having “southern” qualities are very different. Even Jax is not “the south”. Is it “southern”? Sure. Skynyrd is from here after all. But very few people from Florida have anything in common with most people from Mississippi or Alabama (“the south”).

Redneck and southern aren’t the same thing. If it was, Ohio would be southern as frick.

Fair enough. That part of Florida and Southern Georgia are fairly indistinguishable though. The northern half of Florida is very traditionally Southern.

Hmm. Maybe inland and the panhandle but that’s not where 80+% of the population lives. I live in northeast Florida and most people here don’t identify with the south in the sense you’ll find in the true Deep South states.

I'm assuming that you live in Jacksonville. Big cities in much of the South aren't really all that Southern anymore. Most are big melting pots now until you get a little ways out of the city center.

I actually live in the Green Swamp. Some of the necks there aren't very civilized. The necks go from GA down to the bottom of the Everglades. Orange County is an oasis, surrounded by necks.

If you want a rabbit hole to go down, read about The Green Swamp Ape, or Skunk Ape. Especially the sighting during one of the 2004 hurricanes.

re: Texas and Florida are the South
I agree but nowhere along the A1A / I 95 corridor is the south nor do people identify with it. Inland, yea it’s more southern but not the south. I’m telling you this as a lifelong Floridian.

Atlanta by contrast is the south geographically and way more culturally southern than anywhere in FL, urban or rural IMO. ATL has that old antebellum yet modern vibe we just don’t have in FL. The people are different too.

Kentucky is borderline.

Oklahoma, nah.

Virginia is debatable.

The south is defined by NC/TN to the north, east TX to the west, and Jacksonville to the south.

Louisiana 
Mississippi 
Georgia 
Tennessee 
South Carolina

I was about to argue this until i thought better of it. You could also include West Virginia, Arkansas and Kentucky but probably not North Carolina.

Whatever though. You're right and anyone who downvotes you is wrong.

Plenty of NC is the South. Anyone that doesn't think so has never spent a week in Wilson or Lexington, NC like I have.
