Blame It On The Lightning

CHAPEL HILL, N.C.–We’re delayed here at the North Carolina-South Carolina super-regional, as lightning is flashing directly overhead. That means we’ll have a minimum 30-minute delay before play can resume. I don’t think I’m allowed to tell you the score, but if you check one of the NCAA’s official partners, I’m sure you can find out for yourself. I’ll just have to keep my observations to myself for now, because the NCAA doesn’t want you to decide to turn off your television and choose to read about the game here on the College Blog instead. I know that would have been a tempting option. Anyway, officials here say they’re prepared to wait long into the night to try to get this game in tonight, but if it needs to be resumed tomorrow, it will likely happen mid-afternoon some time.
