W&L's turf field handles the water pretty well. It's an advantage for W&L to some small degree, but I expected Guilford to play a balanced offense anyway. Wind would be better for W&L than rain because I think W&L is more susceptible defensively to the pass, so if the weather shifts Guilford's play calling a little bit that might be the most help the Generals can hope for. Offensively, as was pointed out, W&L is as likely to slip on wet turf or mishandle on option pitch as any other offense slipping and dropping passes. Rain might lead to seeing how good Guilford's front 7 is against the non-stop pounding of Marshall Hollerith. But that only works if W&L can stay close going into the second half when the pounding starts to take its toll.How much rain is forecast for the Lexington area ... and will it be raining from 1-4 pm?
