"My gut doesn't work that way, no sir,'' he said. "I can't back in [to the playoffs]. I'm not going to lie to you.
"There are big implications for both teams in the playoffs - I know that. They beat us, they have a chance of making it. We win, we're in; we lose, we're out. We know that.''
Interestingly, George Washington AD Shawn Wheeler said if he knew Laidley Field was available tonight, he would have moved his home game against Parkersburg into that time slot. Thinking it was already filled, GW settled on a 1 p.m. Saturday game time at Laidley because its own home field was waterlogged.
"We were willing to play Thursday night [at Laidley] - without practice,'' Wheeler said, "but Parkersburg wouldn't play Thursday night. We definitely would like to have played [tonight].''
Because classes were called off in Kanawha County on Tuesday and Wednesday, teams were not permitted to practice.
At least a dozen games around the state have been moved, delayed or canceled entirely. (See revised state schedule, Page 2B.)
