The entire state, perhaps the Cincinnati area to a lesser extent, worships Buckeye football. It's a great shared cultural value.

High school football and basketball are very important to many communities throughout Ohio.

My perception, perhaps incorrect, is that mainline Protestant affiliation is much stronger in southern Ohio than in the South, where there is a significantly higher percentage of evangelical (Baptist) Protestants.

This is from 2008, but southern Ohio likely remains much more Democratic than many white-dominated counties in the South.

Much of Ohio is in the Appalachian foothills. It's not mountainous, but it is not flat. The highest elevations in the state are northwest of Columbus.

Greater Cincinnati has much greater changes in elevation than likely any other major city in the Midwest, and Cleveland likely is a close second.

Southern Ohio is not part of "the south" but it has many attributes that are reminiscent of the Appalachian South.

Ie. Coal mining, rolling hills, conservative ideologies, relative poverty (outside of metro Cincinnati), racially homogeneous, country accents etc.

Yeah the Confederate flag is flown everywhere. You can find the thing in Rhode Island even.

Rhode Island is part southern, flagically and culturally.

Is western NY like OH which is midwest or is northeast OH like western NY which is north-eastern? Or are they great lakes? Or Mid-atlantic? Or Appalachian? Or southern? Who am I? I'm so confused.

At the airports. Ohio has a maritime border with Canada, so the poster us correct. And the air hop over Lake Erie is a very short one.

The southwest part of the state is dominated by large urban and suburban areas as well. Culturally it is very, very different from southeastern Ohio, even though large numbers of people, including my extended family, moved from southeastern Ohio to the southwestern part of the state in search of better economic opportunities.

Yes, but that southernmost part of Canada is one of the most heavily populated parts of the country, and contains it's capital city.

Southern Ohio has Southern influences but with the exception of the Southeastern Ohio I would not call it truly Southern. It's Midwestern first before anything else. Same with the vast majority of Missouri.
