Reading comments on Twitter if those are to be believed, Maryland tried to play a doubleheader the prior days. Purdue said no.
Seems shady....but it is what it is. Nebraska doesn't deserve to be in the tournament when they were in the position they were in....they had plenty of opportunities to clinch a tournament berth. It's sad with it being in Omaha, but oh well.
I know that but that’s a bunch of Twitter talk the articles I’m reading makes no mention of it.the argument is that Purdue/Maryland/the B1G knew the weather was going to be bad today so they could have done what is normally done in that situation and schedule a double header for yesterday
They really, really drug their feet before making a decision......the game time could have been moved up.
From what I gather, it never even rained in West Lafayette today. The Boilers flat out refused to play a doubleheader on either of the first two days because they said there would be a window to play today. Well, there was a window all day, but they refused to move their tarp and start the game. Maryland packed up and left after waiting around a couple hours.
Purdue had 0 interest trying to play today after getting their ass kicked the first 2 games. Maryland was the outright champion and a win today did 0 for their resume and a loss would have been a disaster for their chance to host. Maryland would be just fine if the tournament is rained out this weekend.
