Depends on what part.  Southeast of DC and the Eastern Shore, most definitely yes.  It's main population centers.. no.

Maryland is a southern state. We are really a mix. Marylanders are weird. Some of us you run into have a southern accent like we grew up in Alabama. Others sound like they grew up in the Bronx.

I see at doctor at Johns Hopkins.  Some of the people have an accent similar to that of Philly, some are a Southern.  Very weird mix.

Funny the Philly area is worthless for college football.  Our only good schools are in I-AA and they are Lehigh and Villanova.  Our lone I-A school is Penn State and they blow.  A lof of people are Notre Dame fans.

PA is not a college football state and most of the Northeast corridor isn't either.  Most of us look to the midwest or South for teams we like.  You're rigth Penn State has to boot JoePa and move to the Big East and Temple (my alma mater) needs to drop to I-AA with Villanova.

Well, like I said, we are not a college football state.  In fact the Philly metro area is a college basketball area.  Our Big 5 schools (Temple, St.Joe's, LaSalle, U of Penn, and Villanova) are nationally recognized.  My brother went ot St. Joe's and graduated in 2003 (guess the keynote speaker?).
