North Carolina vs. South Carolina: Weather Could Cause Shake Up

The 2013 College World Series has now taken center stage as we roll into the dog days of Summer.

The #1 overall seed North Carolina Tarheels vs the South Carolina Gamecocks has been one of the most compelling match-ups of the Super Regionals. A rivalry between the two schools, has reached a point, where the stakes are higher than they’ve ever been. The three game series between the two is tied at two. A game was expected to be played today, to decide who advances to the College World Series, however it was postponed because of inclement Weather.

Here’s where the real craziness comes about…

According to the NCAA, if the game can’t occur between the two tomorrow, a winner will simply be ‘picked’.

How’s that for unfair?

The game is scheduled for 12pm tomorrow but there appears to be one problem. According to the National Weather Service,  there is a 30% of T-Storms at 12pm at the North Carolina campus tomorrow.

Now hopefully, we can forget about this and this game can played, forcing a winner to be determined fair and square.

But, if it cannot, it is sure to cause a major conflict around the world of College Athletics. Can you imagine being a part of the losing team in game that was never played? It’s senseless.

What do you think about this bizarre rule? Sound off below.
