With two wins over Rutgers, Indiana’s lead over Nebraska is now 1-1/2 games.

Cade Povich has 6 strikeouts through 2 innings.

The Hoosiers are saving their Sunday starter until tomorrow, choosing to start a guy who has thrown 22 innings in 2021.

A win today is imperative.

I liked the hustle, but probably not the best decision by Cam.

Radio guy has cleared up a mystery. Ben Mclaughlin just said having a all turf field was required for hosting a pod.

He went on to say that it would allow play in the rain w/o worrying about any ground crew needed and causing delays.

But then I wonder why allowing pods at a park w/o lights. Rutgers got no lights.
If only the grounds crew had a giant sponge. I think that field is a major safety concern because of the water especially on the base paths.

Anyone remember what makes it an official game? 5 innings or 7 innings?
We only needed to get through the top of the 5th. I checked the radar and there were some pretty colors. According to Accuweather it's supposed to stop raining in about 30 minutes. We'll see. It's not a big storm.

It's 4:30 there and they have no field lighting. Hope this game gets finished.

This is what didn’t make sense why have a pod on a field that has no lights and the best facility in baseball in the conference didn’t get a pod..
Another brain fart by the higher ups in the B1G..

10 run rule is 7 innings, 5th inning to call a game if I remember correctly. I rember that Sunday NU/UT game at Haymarket in 05 when UT had to catch a plane to get back home and game was called in the 8th giving Texas the win and the series. Personally imo, UT chicken shitted their way out of it as we starting run on all cylinders and starting to hit the shit out of them.

Michigan State and Purdue have grass fields. And lights! Both host pods in 2021.

Penn State has grass. And lights! It does not host a pod. Not even one at a neutral site like Nebraska did.

? The Sunday game against Texas was called after 8 innings due to travel, and Nebraska had blown a 5-2 lead.

20 minutes expected to resume. This isn't good for us, gonna need to use the bullpen for extended innings in game 1. Maybe Povich will attempt to come back out, but I can't imagine the coaches allowing it.

The radar forecast shows rain clearing out about 6:00 Piscataway time. But it can always let up enough to play while rain is still falling. Sunset is at 8:00.

The game will probably get finished but I doubt Povich will be able to continue. Nebraska will need to use more bullpen than it should have. With its ace dealing it and in game one of a four-game weekend. Lovely.

Since most professional baseball games are nine innings long, the fifth inning is used as the threshold for an official game. If the visiting team is leading, or the game is tied, the end of the fifth inning marks this point.

There is your answer

Same rules apply to college.

One thing though, Indiana's bullpen is already in worse shape than ours.
