Weather could affect TCU-Air Force series

I can't believe the Weather Channel, who rolls out all of their technilogical bells & whistles for something as insignificant as a Hurricane, hasn't been producing wall-to-wall coverage of the weather's potential impact on this weekend's baseball series between TCU and Air Force. After all, the Frogs' magic number to clinch the MWC regular-season title is just one.

With a sizable chance of rain all weekend, including thunderstorms, there's a possibility that one or more games could be rescheduled, if not cancelled outright. A cancellation might not be the worst thing for TCU, as even victories against Air Force (with an RPI of 269) aren't going to improve the Frogs' postseason résumé. The exception to that, of course, is the suspended game. Game 3 of the TCU-Air Force series back in March up in Colorado Springs, you'll remember, was supsended in the Top of the 7th with the Falcons leading by a run. The Frogs have GOT to play the remainder of that game and HAVE to win it- if a win over a lowly-ranked team has the potential to harm your RPI, just think what a loss to them would do. Word on the street is that depending on the weather situation tomorrow, they may move the final 2 ½ innings of the suspended game (scheduled to begin at 5:30pm as of now) up to as early as noon.
