PAIN for the home team.

Rainy with a high of 89
I am who I am, said he who is. 15,235
That means it'll be closer to 200 degrees inside Cardinal Stadium. That synthetic turf just radiates heat. It's literally like a pizza oven in there.
Your team. All the time.
One thing to watch now is the path of tropical storm Isaac. It could very well cause the whole weather pattern in this area to be disrupted about next weekend.
Computer model projections show it being over Kentucky on Friday the 31st. May clear out by game time on Sunday. Maybe.
Speaking of pizza, if any of you will be in Louisville for the game get a pie from Papilinos. There is one on U of L's campus and on Baxter Ave. Excellent pizza.
The latest projection for Louisville on Sunday for Isaac per the NWS:
A 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Partly sunny, with a high near 85.
Isolated T-storms 84 degrees.
No rain; 91 degrees
Overcast with a chance of a thunderstorm. High of 84F with a heat index of 93F. Winds from the SSW at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 50%.
I do not do the Weather channel - bunch of pinheads.

Per the NOAA model they're showing, we'll start getting the residual stuff from Isaac on Sunday morning. Going to be real interesting if that continues to shift.

I'd also like to think rain benefits us because we may be better suited to control the ground game with our backs. If they're going to run no huddle as rumoured it could make things difficult for them.
They are also predicting 1.50 to 1.75 inches of rain for Louisville until 8:00 AM Sunday
Rick Minter's dry sense of humor always makes me laugh, which is why I got a kick out of his answer about the possibility of heavy rain changing their plan:
"Nah, I've got to be there either way," Minter said. "I don't think it matters. We wear helmets. If it rains, it rains. As long as there is no electricity in the air we'll play it rain or shine."
I prefer spinellis.
More and more it looks like bulk of the rain will be throughout the day Sunday. Going to make for an interesting game, and maybe more interesting parking situations. If you're going I'd be careful where you park because that area suffers from flash flooding.

UPDATE: midday model runs still aiming at Sunday afternoon-Monday as highest rain chance. Only spotty activity until then. Verbatim - models give most of us 1" but due to the high moisture content--we will continue the range of 1-3" for now with most areas on that lower end. Dry air is doing a number on Isaac today, but the data continues to support some enhancement Sunday pm/Monday. -bgoode
According to that the heavy rain may miss the game and start afterwards.
