Southern culture is not even remotely close to Texan culture...hell, even today. Texas was dominated by German immigrants. The Brits colonized all the way to the Mississippi river, had the bad teeth and preferred blacks over Mexican slave labor. Also everyone knows that the Clampets were from Tennessee and Granny was from Arkansas.
In all my travels, I can't tell you the number of times I've had people say: "Oh, Texas. So you're from the South?" I tell them, "No! I am not from the south--I am from TEXAS."

well, we are from the "South" you know. I don't think most people are referring to civil war era culture when coming and going. I'm talking about old school stereotypical culture from caricatures from the past.

Default Re: What if all NFL logos were British?

I have always considered Texas part of the South and myself a Southerner for being from Texas. Texas was one of the 13 Confederate states and most people that settled Texas (outside of Europeans) were from the Deep South. My ancestors migrated to Texas from Tennessee in 1840.

I had several relatives that served in Texas regiments during the Civil War. I have an ancestor on the Texas Confederate monument at Gettsyburg near the Round Tops where the Texas Brigade fought.

The Texas accent (especially east Texas) is a southern accent. Northern people can't tell a Texan from a Georgian when it comes to accents. We all say y'all, fixin', etc.

That said Texas is NOT part of what's considered the Deep South. Texas and Texans are different than the other Southern states. However they are also similar. State pride is still huge in most of the Southern states like Texas. That really doesn't exist outside of the South.

It's the offseason. Not a whole lot of football going on unless you're really into mock drafts and the combine.
