    If the forecast is half right, they are not getting this game in.

    LSU will do everything to not get the game in. Supported by Espn as well. Why would they want to win it on the field?

    Real question is, why would they want to chance losing it on the field when the win is guaranteed?

    I know you guys don't really care about what I think, but looking at the radar, they need to get out there now and start playing. But when does the NCAA ever do anything that is smart.

    Whoever goes to the Super Regional needs to be determined on the field instead by some stupid NCAA tie breaker rule.

    I wouldn't have cared if we moved on without playing yesterday. Single elimination is more fair than allowing a team to advance based on seed. Thats why I said yesterday that I either want no more games played or all of them played. The odds of us getting screwed are too high.

    This is Upsetting Re: Cajuns and Tigers to Meet Once More in Baton Rouge

    Just got clarification from Yvette Girouard--

    Schedule is being set by NCAA "Head of Championships" and NOT by NCAA onsite rep!! She said they asked both yesterday and today to start earlier and were DENIED by NCAA office!!

    IDIOTS, or collusion to protect SEC--take your pick!!

    Yep, looks like 9:00 - 11:00 this morning was about the only open window for a while

    I'm going to resign myself to the fact that LSU is going to get every opportunity to move on without deciding it on the field. If we play, I'll be ecstatic, but I'm not getting my hopes up. We seem doomed at this point.

    NCAA rules state that they can't. I assume the intent of the rule is so teams have enough time to rest, and prepare to travel to the site for the super regional, but who knows.

    The NCAA does allow themselves an out. Will be interesting to see if they take it should it be necessary.

    Both teams are out of school. UL only has an hour bus ride back to Lafayette. The Super Regional in Tallahassee could start Friday. They could play this game tomorrow of they cannot play it today. Get an NCAA waiver.

    If LSU wins the regional if this if necessary game cannot be played I can guarantee you that if it does not rain enough to cancel the game, LSU will "accidentally" turn on the sprinklers.

    Florida Gators baseball played a midweek game against Stetson, in Gainesville April 4. Stetson's RPI was over 200 at the time.

    Stetson was leading 10-1 in the top of 5th inning when the game was delayed by rain. Rain stopped an hour later and the Gators refused to continue and the game is cancelled as if it never started. Gators preserve their RPI.

    I guess you could say it's just business, but it still sux. I hope the same thing doesn't happen today in BR.

    I mean you've gotta know the situation. Last night was the de facto championship game and the girls laid a big ole egg. They played like a team who knew they'd get one more shot. You gotta know there was slim to none chance we'd play today and LSU unfairly advances with a win.

    Let's just see what happens...both these teams want to earn it and I have a feeling the game will be played.

    If it could be played, we're in our window.

    This. At least let it be settled on the field, win or lose.

    My opinion only is that the NCAA is letting ESPN dictate this. I still call this the ESPN Invitational tournament. ESPN has a contract with the SEC and PAC 12. Every SEC team made it to the tournament. By delaying it, there is a better chance of rain and guaranteeing LSU advances. Look at who's in the Super Regionals, all SEC and PAC 12 schools that hosted, except Florida State and possibly Oklahoma, and UL (who didn't host). It is in ESPN's interest to get LSU in a Super Regional. If LSU is the better team, prove it on the field.
