D1Baseball with some insight as to why game was continued

[quote]But Arkansas head coach Dave Van Horn blew a gasket and insisted the game go on. Missouri State head coach Keith Guttin was in favor of doing the sane thing and putting the tarp out. Well apparently, from what I could gather after some snooping, NCAA site representative Gene McArtor, a hall of fame coach from the University of Missouri ages ago, overruled the umpiring crew and decided that play should continue.

The key is that Gene had radar data and the rain was slowing down.
