The match was delayed to around 1.45pm with a 2.06pm kick-off time although there was no inclement weather in the area. It is believed that the delay in the game was due to his unwillingness to start the game and stop it after a short game.
The first game of the Baton Rouge Super Regional between LSU and Kentucky is currently on a weather delay due to increased storm chances in the afternoon.
Jay Johnson addressed the issue yesterday in his press conference, saying he was concerned about the possibility of starting LSU pitcher Paul Skeens and throwing only to waste his outing due to a rain delay.
“We’ll be watching the weather until game time,” Johnson said. We don’t start the game until we have a window to play the game.
