Other than that, no. OSU is not less popular than Bowling Green, even in Wood County, and Michigan is not more popular in those northwest counties shaded in maize (nor in Ashtabula County in the northeast corner of the state). I've been in those areas too much to think otherwise. OSU is immensely popular in those areas. Michigan fans can be found, more up northwest than in other areas, but they aren't as dominant as this map would suggest.
It's a user survey from Reddit not a scientific poll. There's even a disclaimer.

I am aware of that, but it sure doesn't hurt for people actually on the ground to provide feedback.
The New York Times map from a few years ago is far more accurate, IMO.

That's New Braunfels, one of the fastest-growing towns in the US. Has transplants from all over (like Midland), so it's not all that surprising that MSU would have the most respondents to the survey, being a P5 university with high enrollment, alumni base, and following. My guess is that UT would be the favorite in a scientific poll in Comal County, where the town is located.

There is no part of Ohio that is Michigan fan based sorry.

Granted TSUN has taken a few Ohio guys like Charles Woodson. Ohio despises everything Wolverines

^ Yes ... even in Toledo, ground zero for the OSU-Michigan rivalry, OSU is more popular by almost every metric. Not to the staggering extent it is in most of the rest of Ohio, but even Toledo definitely leans Buckeyes.
