Buckeyes are people from Ohio, Hoosiers are people from Indiana.
Buckeye is our state tree in Ohio (and also even more specifically the name of people who attend Ohio State University and the name of our sports teams... and a really good candy meant to look like the nuts of the buckeye tree)
Hoosier, I think, started out as derogatory nickname but is now used as a term of endearment. I haven't the foggiest what it means though. Anyone?
