in the Georgia Dome with no place to go, and nothing to do.

No game tonight, folks.  No word on when the game will be played, but it will be tomorrow.

Worse, Kentucky can't even go back to the hotel yet.  They have to wait at least 40 minutes for the weather to clear.

This is intolerable.  I think the final must be rescheduled for Monday.  Forcing a team to play two games in one day because of an act of God is simply not right for either Georgia or Kentucky.  This is NCAA tournament life or death for at least half of these teams.

To be honest, there need not be a final game on Sunday.  there simply needs to be two finalists by Sunday.  The winner of the SEC championship always happens after the selection committee makes their decision, so that outcome is only relevant to the two teams fighting for the automatic berth.

More when it becomes available.

Update [2008-3-14 23:54:26 by Truzenzuzex]:  The SEC website, at this moment, is absolutely slammed. I can't get anything but the favicon to load.  I'm thinking they weren't prepared for this.

Update [2008-3-14 23:59:19 by Truzenzuzex]:  CNN appears to be confirming a tornado.  I believe them.

Update [2008-3-15 0:32:36 by Truzenzuzex]:  Both ADs are in a closed-door meeting.  They are not sure the arena is sound to host.  No options disclosed so far. Ga. Tech arena doesn't appear to meet requirements.  More as it becomes available.

Update [2008-3-15 0:55:2 by Truzenzuzex]:  Rumor has it that Felton is down for extending the tourney to Monday, saying anything else is unfair.  I think he is right.  To be continued ...

Update [2008-3-15 1:2:2 by Truzenzuzex]:  All three games for tomorrow have been rescheduled as "TBA".  More as I get it.

Update [2008-3-15 1:22:36 by Truzenzuzex]:  OK, this is it. They are not making a decision until early tomorrow morning.  I am done.  If anyone hears anything meaningful between now and then. please do post it.  I am running on fumes.
