I have been a Reds fan since I was old enough to follow baseball, I remeber the Reds when Jim maloney was the ace and Bobby Tolan was playing basketball in the off-season I consider myself a die-hard Reds fan; however I have to give the "dirty birds" their due, at this point in time they are the better team, I have little faith in this Reds team against the Cards. The Reds were playing good ball, move to within 2 1/2 games and "wham" they drop a series to the Braun-less Brewers and get smoked in St. louis. Yes I am Frustrated, because unless someone on this team steps it up, I sense a "bengalesqe" departure from the play-offs

tOSU and Michigan have been the only programs consistently holding up the conference nationally the past 40+ years. Nebraska is too new to count. OSU seemed down after the Tressel situation and then just went out and got the best college coach in the country not named Saban to fill the void to steamroll the rest of the conference for another decade. UW's meatball coach cried like a baby that the Urbanator was out SEC-recruiting him and then bolted to a second tier SEC school when he saw the writing on the wall.
Just for comedic value I looked it up and Wisconsin is 18-55-5 against tOSU all-time and 10-49-1 all-time against the school up North. Wisconsin also needs to thank Ohio HS football for any occassional national relevance.
I will say Camp Randall is an awesome venue and the 4th Quarter jump thing is kind of cool. Nice academic school, but just let the two big boys slug it out on the rivalry smack. It is a respect thing and we know how to handle it ourselves.
Now how 'bout those Reds?
I was also one of those late night radio under the pillow kids from the late 70s and 80s NL West days.
Kept the radio under the bed lol.
