100 Percent Chance of Rain!


That's the weather forecast – heavy rain – for Friday night's Pac-12 championship contest between Stanford and UCLA in Palo Alto, Calif.

Whenever rain is forecasted for a football game it always brings the question of which team is better equipped to handle the wet conditions. Ordinarily, we agree the team with the best running attack has the edge in rain, and passing can dominate in the snow.

UCLA coach Jim Mora has this take on the rain factor:

"You could look at it two ways. They're kind of a physical, pound-it, grind-it-out team. On the one hand, you can say that might be an advantage.

"But I've also been in games where a team that spreads it out a little more, gets playmakers in the open field and creates those one-on-one matchups sometimes has the advantage. If you make a guy miss on a slippery field, you've got some ground you can gain."

In the regular season finale Saturday, Stanford handed UCLA a 35-17 defeat.

T.J. Simers is questioning whether clouds that night held back any potential rainfall that may or may not have provided an advantage to one team over the other.

This design is spectacular! You certainly know how to keep a reader
entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start
my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Wonderful job.
I really loved what you had to say, and more than that,
