Kansas is in the Midwest. Missouri is a Southeastern state.

I wonder, as do many here, why we want to "NFL" college football.  I like disorder,  it's inevitable anyway.

I don't mind an even setup with x-number of teams in every conference and all that.  I do not want the postseason to be inclusive, though, like the NFL's is.

My first year in grad school, I overheard some other students from the northeast talking about how they considered Pennsylvania to be a southern state.  I was thinking North Carolina was a northern state.

Humans like tidy lists, and distinctions and categorizations.

This isn't one of those "perspective" things. I like having the Big Ten and the SEC divided along Civil War lines. Yes, I know that Kentucky and Missouri had a foot in each door, but I don't mind conceding them both to the south. 

That said, I know that no one else cares about that. So looking up some maps that divide up the regions, this is the one I find to be most sound. What I like most about it is that it separates the Left coast off as its own thing, whereas most of the others just lumped it all together as "The West."

To anyone on the Atlantic coast, everything west of the Appalachians is the frontier.

To anyone on the Pacific coast, everything east of the Rockies is "back east".

Mt Rushmore is a good example. 

Most people in the East think of it as being somewhere way out west. 

Nobody out west considers the Dakotas to be "out west."

Sounds like that space between the Mississippi river and the Rocky mountains is unclaimed.
Must be why it gets the short stick in major realignment talk.

There are reasonable debates as to which region states like Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, W Virginia, and Kentucky belong to.

Kansas up to N Dakota is clearly in the Midwest.

Aside from folks that can't find Canada or the Pacific Ocean on a map, I doubt there are many folks that would consider those states anything other than the Midwest. I mean they are flat, cold and covered in corn.

The folks who think My Rushmore is out west probably don't know what state it is in. They just know what it looks like, and assume that it must be "out west."
