It would be like Toledo honoring Michigan, which would never happen...it's the same concept
It's not the same concept at all. Michigan has their own professional sports franchises and always has. Kentucky doesn't. Most of the state of Kentucky has always been Reds country. I seriously doubt you could say the same thing for the state of Michigan. Southern Ohio is made up of many Kentuckians, and obviously many UK fans. The people you know and think of as Ohioans, are in many cases probably native Kentuckians and/or have parents/grandparents who are native Kentuckians.
