Maryland, Temple.

Delaware, Northeastern, Maine, UNH, UVM, Nova, URI, Towson, Hofstra, UMass, Stony Brook, Brown, Harvard, Yale, Penn, Cornell, Dartmouth, Columbia, Princeton, Howard, Delaware State, etc., etc. for D I-AA.

Our facilities are fine and we're shedding our reputation for being a losing program. We were a hailmary knockdown away from playing Ball State in the MAC Championship.

Ohio may not be #1 in college football talent, but we've got the most/best coaches!

But what really separates Ohio from other states is an uncommonly high number of decent college football programs. Ohio's 36 NCAA football schools ranks second in the nation overall and includes eight schools that play in the NCAA's elite Football Bowl Subdivision (Pennsylvania, which has more programs overall, has only three in the FBS). These schools, which range from Ohio State in the Big Ten to Bowling Green, Toledo and Ohio University of the Ohio-centric Mid-American Conference, give Ohio kids more opportunities to play college football and, if inclined, to join a coaching staff.

Ohio actually has a lot of top tier football talent. In the Northeast, it's between New Jersey and Pennsylvania. New York might not have the numbers, but the quality of those that play D1 is usually good, if not very good. We are make some strides too.
