    FAMU vs UCF and Boise State vs FSU look in danger of being cancelled. Southern Florida looks more likely to be spared. Thankfully we have no game this weekend.
    Hopefully Mother Nature will be kind to us this year.

    Name and town if you wish to opine.

        Nah. If the latest cone map is accurate, the storm's effects will not be significant until Sunday midday.

        At worst, move the games to a noon Saturday kickoff.

            These days, they cancel a game if there’s a lightning strike in China. They’ll cancel a ton of games no matter what the damn cone says.

                All the more reason that the hurricanes suck.

                    I don’t know how this would’ve impacted the Miami game, had it not been moved to a week sooner, but am I so glad it was now. I could only imagine the crap I would hear if we had to postpone the Miami game due to a hurricane threat. Miami fans would never shut up with their claims were afraid to play them.

                      I love how those spaghetti models always have one projected path way different than the rest. Like the pink one on this link, they believe it's just going to pull a 90 degree left turn in the middle of the ocean and go fck up Cuba.:lol:

                          I'm willing to bet Willlllllie is praying they cancel the Boise game.

                            I'm hoping they move up the Boise/FSU game to earlier in the day Saturday so we can hopefully see Boise thrash FSU.

                              And if FSU refuses, Boise can call them chickens and mock and ridicule them.
                              You know, steal a page out of the Joe Alleva "How to be the worst AD in America" book.

                                Issue is FEMA and first responders want the hotels for workers and evacuees so they tend to push to cancel big events...not that FSU is a big event.
