Mayor in BR is having a news conference at 10 this morning.
Rumor on game is false at this point.

From The Advocate:
quote:

LSU athletics officials are working closely with university and state personnel to monitor the progression of Hurricane Gustav, but there is no anticipated impact on the LSU vs. Appalachian State football game at this time.

LSU is scheduled to open its 2008 football season at 4 p.m. on Saturday against Appalachian State at 4 p.m.

LSU will update fans on any changes via the news media and LSUsports.net should conditions warrant it.

i think any contraflow would start Sunday anyway. it has slowed down. I still think this is being blown waaaaay out of porportion. And yes, i know about hurricanes, stupidly, I rode out Katrina at home in metairie.

Premature imo. There would be plenty of time to get out on Sunday and Monday for those who want to leave.Might as well cancel all home games in September.

Failed to see how a hurricane expected to hit land on Tuesday has anything to do with a Saturday game being played or not. Yeah it might affect the fans, but the game must go on.

Just read the threads man. If contraflow starts Saturday it would be a logistical nightmare.

HUH?? the storm will be by Cuba late Saturday. There is no fricking way it makes landfall on Sunday, Late monday is very doubtful.. GFDL was fast everybody already knew that and its correcting itself.
