Florida to Ohio

We always drive I75 back and forth while traveling to Florida. Just a change of pace, any ideas to avoid the mountains in Tennessee and Kentucky. We end up in North western ohio near I75

I really don't consider I-75 as a mountainous route, but I drive extensively in Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, etc. If you want to add more miles to the drive, you could detour over west at Chattanooga on I-24 to Nashville, then I-65 to Louisville. Continue north on I-65 to Indianapolis and either I-69 to Ft. Wayne or I-70 over to I-75 at Dayton. I've driven those roads, but I can't remember if it's much less 'mountainous' than I-75 around Knoxville.

Since the mtns run from the NE into northern GA and AL, they are hard to avoid, but you could swing west over to I-65 which looks to miss them. Like said above, after CO, the grades going over Jellico Mtn are just hills by comparison.
