This really is fricking comical now. State is under an evacuation and UF is still trying to play the game in The Swamp.

UF is really showing its true colors on this. The game should have been moved, but not UF, by God this game will be played in the swamp. Huntley Johnson, Ryan Lochte and the rest of the yahoos can kiss my

Even if Gainesville is bone dry with no winds of concern, the Governor of Florida has essentially said the entire eastern half of the state and many states to its north are going to have widespread power outages. The Swamp must have one hell of a big generator to host a game.

I remember Hurricane Issac hitting a few years back. I had no power, cancelled school, cancelled work, was taking cold showers, yet I was glad to be at the LSU vs North Texas football game 2-3 days after it made landfall. Helps the fans escape reality at home...

I remember driving 40 miles to a bar to see LSU/ Arizona after Katrina. It was so wonderful to forget about that bitch for a few hours. To bad the people of Florida will be denied the escape by short sighted fools.

Everyone. It states a decision will be MADE BY 2pm central on the game Time. It does not say the game is moved to 2 on.

Lsu came to Florida on Monday about talks of relocating the game.. we was gonna provide everything possible to play this game out.. Florida said no!! To everything! Point blank florida had all the positives.. especially the fans to get da he'll out of that mess for the weekend! But Florida has its whole starting d-line hurt and their starting quaterback! They postponed to buy time smh! This game could have been played anywhere! And I'm not buying this bullshite Florida is throwing in the air! Money and time wasn't da problem Florida was so frick ingredients stubborn it makes me sick! They didn't wanna play us anyway!

For the safety of the players and fans cancel the game. Neither school should be penalized if game cancelled. If LSU wins out they should have the edge over all SEC west teams except Auburn. Auburn will have at least 2 losses.

It was a good idea to push it back to 2 pm. The storm appears to be shifting east according to all the latest models. Although this is still a logistical nightmare, Florida once had 4 hurricanes in 2 months time and was still fine so I don't see this being as bad as most fear. Hope I'm right.

Don't know where you are getting that info because the track has not shifted east. All the models still showing the eye riding basically on the coast until it gets to Jacksonville, then it turns northeast.

I don't think most of you idiots know what it takes to prepare and put on an event of this magnitude. You can't just grab a random location overnight.
user avatar
BILLFISHER2293 months
You are missing it "idiot"!!! They had ample time to move venues and have failed to do so. I think for the Gators personal gains at that!

They have not had ample time

Really? Agree to disagree. It's been done numerous times. Problem is, they have drug their feet for days now. The storm has been coming their way for days and they have done zip as of now.

I don't understand why LSU fans are mad on this one? What do you want Florida or the SEC to do? Move the game to Baton Rouge? That's convenient... for LSU.

Stfu. It's about player safety. If this is the other way around, we would also urge LSU AD to move the game to the Swamp. In fact, LSU did it three times in 2005. Were that also to LSU 's convenience?

Not only player safety, but you fans taking up hotels and creating traffic that gets in the way of evacuees and possible emergency response efforts. It creates unnecessary logistical complications. I heard on the radio this morning that evacuees in South Carolina are having trouble finding hotels because of the game in Columbia. Why make the same mistake in Florida?

Move the damn game anywhere out of the storm path.

No move the game to Mobile Alabama for all we care. Get it out of a damn Hurricane.

don't be that guy. We(as concerned parents of players) want our kids to be safe. What if you had a kid on LSU's team? Would you want him traveling TOWARDS this disaster? Play this game anywhere safer than in the Swamp
