It's always a joy to blow out old OSU, regardless of the sport. Buckeye fans are pretty full of themselves. Most seem to believe all things OSU are like Mary Poppins--practically perfect in every way. Talked to a couple other Bearcat fans in the stands and they were shocked to hear how much more highly ranked the AAC is as a college baseball conference than the B10.

So it's been a pretty exciting season and it would be great for folks to turn out this final weekend for a team that's showing a lot of promise. For the coming "August-like" weather; a cold beer and soft pretzel in Marge Schott Stadium sounds like a winner. Go 'Cats!

I spoke with a osu fan yesterday. He was high on osu baseball until he heard UC smoked them. The narrative then became who cares about baseball, only fball and basketball count. UC does very well against osu in baseball. Let's hope this carries over into basketball next season.

There's no sense arguing with guys like that. If/when UC wins next year, you'll hear that it was UC's "Superbowl" and OSU was not taking it seriously because it was the first game of the year. Ditto if/when UC beat s the Buckeyes in football someday.

I would bet 95% of OSU fans don't even know the two schools play in baseball. Nobody in my office over the last 5 years has once even mentioned OSU Baseball, but we talk Reds, and Indians all the time.

College baseball is a super niche sport in Ohio.

Bearcats roll #20 South Florida 10-7.

Schedule change with a doubleheader today; no game tomorrow. Not sure if this is weather related but I'm guessing both teams look forward to an extra day off before the AAC championship next week.

Go 'Cats!

Our guys have had hot bats of late, particularly Manny Rodriguez, Kyle Mottice, Connor McVey and Cole Murphy. We are going to need it today as I believe we will be facing their ace and 2nd best pitcher. USF has some power in their lineup as well.

And I suspect both teams may try to save their better pitchers for next week if they possibly can. So these could turn into slugfests (weather permitting).

Looks like you were right... currently 6-4 Bulls in the 4th. This one is turning into a beer softball league slugfest.

I think the USF pitcher is one of their regular starters. And he's only given up 3 hits. Luckily for UC they have all been HR's.
