I lived in texas for 3years it is one of my favorite states. I love the hunting and the women are nice to, right up there with florida and california girls. they do love there state
You need to become an adult and deal with reality. I don't live in Nebraska. My state has the best economy in the country, double digit surpluses every quarter, and has the lowest violent crime in the states. Maybe living in a more rural state is an advantage? Of course it is, look at the economies as compared to states that are bombarded by criminals.
We just moved back to Ohio from Round Rock. We lived there for a little over 3 years. The reason we came back was due to a family situation. With that being said I really thought I would retire in Texas it is a Great!! State. The summers are hot but not bad. I worked outside in Ohio for 25 years and really got accustom to the warm weather in Texas. Also the sunsets are spectular and you have South Padre Island which is also a great spot. Lord willing we will return to Texas one day soon. Oh and I forgot to mention the people of Texas are awesome. My best friend down there whom I watched most of the OSU games with this season asked me if I would get him a Ryan Shazier jersey for Christmas.
People are like that everywhere, man. Its not just Texas. Want to see Arrogance? Go to California. Those mental midgets not only think they know everything but they want to mandate their idiocy so everyone else has to follow them right off the edge of a cliff.
Regional arrogance is all over. Everyone thinks their shit don't stink. Cept for me. My shit really doesn't stink and my opinions are facts because I'm from Ohio and we do things right....except vote for Obama. We shit the bed there. Other than that......

Agree with all the shots at Husker. He's an embarrassment. Disagree with Texas about Texas, though. Lived there 13 years and could not wait to leave. Just a difference of opinion.
Welcome to the off-season folks! Aside from getting a little too personal, the thread has been a hoot. I'm a big fan of the State of Texas but I was impressed by Husker's plug for North Dakota ($15 jobs at McD's and $100K salaries galore!).
Btw, there's an ongoing thread debating the merits of "Sweet Caroline".
Why all the personal attacks? I simply stated I don't understand all of the arrogance about the state of Texas. If you like it, no big deal. I have never found it to be a great state. There are good people in every state.
Austin is awesome. One of the best cities in America. Not a fan of Houston at all. Traffic is ridiculous down there. Haven't spent enough time in Dallas/Fort Worth to have an opinion one way or the other. The bottom line is most people seem to love living in Texas and I can see why.
And Texas has arrogance? No way. Not the state that tried to form its own country. They are still dripping with pride of being the "Lone-Star State."
PS: The Longhorns will be a force every year once they get a good coach (i.e. not Mack Brown).
Wait, the suckiness (or non-suckiness) of Texas and the song Sweet Caroline were not on your mind on 3rd-and-7 against Michigan late in the fourth quarter? What about when OSU and Wisconsin were going to overtime? Certainly you were having internal debates on whether Texas was great or not. You also undoubtedly were singing Sweet Caroline, knowing that the Buckeyes were about to win. Don't try and act like these important topics are merely reserved for the offseason!

I lived in Houston, Texas for 4 years. My wife and I had a child and we moved back to Columbus. Houston is a great place to make money and buy a McMansion but it has absolutely no character. It is a sprawled out city encompassing over 590 square miles. I did not mind living there but I would choose Columbus over Houston any day of the week. Now that my wife and I call the beautiful tree lined streets of Grandview Heights home and spend no longer than 13 minutes in transit to work I cannot imagine going back to Houston where everything is flat, hot, and both my wife and I would spend 45-50 minutes to drive 10 miles to work. Before we moved we thought money was everything but we quickly realized we took for granted Midwestern values, ethics, and communities. Now that we are back I can say unequivocally that Columbus is the best place for us to raise our family.
First he made the sunshine, then he made the waters deeeeeeep...
Transplanted Ohioan living in the Austin area and I love it here. Sans the work commute, Longhorn and Cowboys fans, anyway. Having said that, Columbus is on a very short list of places I'd be willing to re-locate to..

But I have actually never been to Texas. Heard Austin and San Antonio are great cities, heard the rest of the cities are kindof overcrowded and meh. But most texans do have tons of state pride, so who knows. And they always say Austin is much different then the rest of the state, I guess because its a lot more liberal.
I live in Nashville, I like it a lot, but I miss Ohio, especially in the fall.
Nice article, thank you Dave.
a few more stats from ND...

No one had a choice as to where they were born. That being said, if you chose to live in the state you were born in most of your life, you are definitely going to love it probably. So why is everyone bickering about which state is best. The people, traditions, neighbors, resources, etc., make you happy. Why can't we all just be glad we were born in the USA!! And if you don't happen to like where you live, you have the freedom to move to any other state. There is one thing I do know: I'm a "Buckeye born and bred; Buckeye 'til I'm dead." GO BUCKS!!
But everything is bigger in Texas. I was in Dallas for over a year. There are many beautiful women throughout Texas. But for every hot chick, there is a bigger chick to even things out. Texas is the home of thick and plus size women.
Not that anything is wrong with that.
So, Everything is truly bigger in Texas
