Rain Rain Go Away & Northern State Controversy?

Rainout

12 games were scheduled that involved Northern Sun teams yesterday.  10 of them were cancelled due to the weather and Northern State wishes the other 2 were as well.  This goes along with the 5 that were cancelled on Thursday. 3 on Wednesday and 3 on Tuesday.  Most of the games lost were in Florida where teams scraped together money to get away from the bad weather.  The Florida forecast is supposed to be much improved today.

Northern State Controversy

Northern State may have hit a new low yesterday after getting swept in a doubleheader by NAIA’s Minot State by a combined score of 29-0.  Minot State had a record of 10-19 last year so they are a weaker team in a lower division of baseball.  The team was outhit 32-6, committed 6 errors and their pitchers hit 6 batters over the 2 games.

So what’s the controversy?

So I’m reading the press release and looking at the box scores – Minot State Grabs 2 From Wolves  Do you notice anything from the Minot State box scores?

The players listed who kicked Northern State’s butts all play for Minnesota State, not Minot State.   Northern State is playing in Arizona while Minnesota State is supposed to be playing in Florida.  So what happened?

  • Minnesota State’s games were cancelled the last 2 days – did they get on a plane and go to Arizona where they pretended to be Minot State Beavers?
  • Did the Northern State Sports Information Director have a massive screw up?
  • Did the games even really take place?

Minot State’s entire school website is down so I can’t even check what they have to say about it – maybe that’s part of the evil plan? 

I may have to ping the Minnesota State SID for a comment.
