They should move the game to Tiger Stadium. There, I called it. Will anyone listen to me? Probably not.

"If the hurricane stays on its current track..." That's a pretty big "if"...stands to reason that if they are evacuating, the game will be postponed.

Frustrating, bought tickets to South Carolina last year and the same thing happened. Looking forward to the 3:00 announcement.

We are flying in Thursday and I really don't know what the airlines are going to do yet. I may get there and not be able to get for a few days!

Though the storm is devastating when it hits, but it is always the aftermath that is where the real issues arise. Power, Housing, Roads, Transportation. It will be interesting with a State of Emergency in place whether they play or not.

What's up with the font choices in his statement?

It makes absolutely no sense. Someone in their communications office has a shitty understanding of "trendy" typesets.

The fact that Gainesville will not be directly hit means nothing. LSU still has to fly in and emergency responders may also be needed in other parts of the state. I think they are being very optimistic here.

I read it as someone yelling at the beginning and calming down a little and then yelling again and finishing off calm.

Florida is in denial like South Carolina was last season

I think the best thing that can happen for LSU is to play this game at its original site, date and time. This football team is ready to go into the Swamp and come away with a win.

As big of an LSU fan as I am, I will not celebrate people going through a potentially devastating storm so we get an extra home game.

Models are going nuts and continue to trend westerly... the Euro (the most dependable of the models) even shows this storm doing a loop after making a landfall in Florida and curving back for a second landfall and subsequent path into the Gulf as a weak tropical storm. I would say that there is a 95% chance that this game will be moved/ canceled.

Those of you going to GNV check your reservations, State of FL is likely to commandeer Hotel rooms for 1st Responders and Utility Crews

Florida will decide to cancel so they can get more time to prepare.

Nash Roberts? How old are you BobABooey? I use to watch Mel and Nash in New Orleans back in the 50's. Good times. Jax, Regal and Falstaff: where did all the good times go. I'm over here in Palm C ity, FL putting up shudders and getting ready for Matthew. Hope he passes offshore.

Mel Levitt? Didn't he host Varsity Quiz Bowl too? Jimmy Steele doing the sports on channel 6 (I think). He had a coffee cup with who knows what in it and would "raise the victory cup" to a team that won and take a drink. Hap doing the Fairgrounds results on 4....good times.

The last 2 updates on Intellicast have brought the Hurricane closer to Florida. Where Gainesvlle wasn't even in the yellow, it's now in the orange which says 60 mph winds. Don't blame me, blame the hurricane trackers.

Mostly, let's hope those in Gainesville (especially in areas of the more direct path) come out clean. Then let's play some ball.
