The hole in ceiling at the St. Pete Times Forum looks to not present a problem. It's a pre0exisiting condition that typically rears its ugly face during Tampa Bay Lightning ice hockey games. Since droplets of water aren't a big deal with ice as a playing surface, no harm, no foul has been the approach.
The question is, if the arena and its management knew of the problem, why didn't they fix it?
You have to imagine that the NCAA had no knowledge of that because it could have easily told the folks here to correct the matter or else.
Instead, the word is that a last-minute attempt to stop the leak -- or at least keep water off the court -- is in the works and no delay is expected.
