    Default Western Illinois and Rain

    It will rain 4 or 5 days between now and kickoff 6pm Saturday night in Macomb. Western Illinois will have a hard time practicing this week. The grass on the field may not be cut. Chance of rain during the game... Muddy, poor footing, slow field.
    The Bison have played all games so far this season on turf ... and inside.

    What effect do you think the weather and field conditions will have on the game at Macomb ..... a place and team that already gives the Bison fits. ??

    Better question is how will the conditions effect WIU if they cant practice? the other question is why dont you think they will find a place to practice?.

    It is characteristic of the unlearned that they are forever proposing something which is old, and because it has recently come to their own attention, supposing it to be new.

    WIU has turf. The rain is a non factor.

    We all live in stories... It seems to me that a definition of any living vibrant society is that you constantly question those stories... The argument itself is freedom. It's not that you come to a conclusion about it. Through that argument you change your mind sometimes... That's how societies grow. When you can't retell for yourself the stories of your life then you live in a prison... Somebody else controls the story. - S. Rushdie

    I believe it's none now. SDSU was the last to go to turf IIRC.

    I'm more concerned with it being a night game. It's really dark at that place.
