Written by the Southeastern Conference

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama (October 6, 2016) – The LSU-Florida football game scheduled for Saturday in Gainesville has been postponed due to Hurricane Matthew, it was announced Thursday. The universities and the SEC Office will work to reschedule the game later in the 2016 season if possible.

“We had a very productive phone call today with a great spirit of cooperation between the universities’ presidents and athletics directors and it became clear that the University of Florida could neither host nor travel to a game this weekend considering the circumstances,” said SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey. “The developments of the hurricane in the last 24 hours, the projected magnitude of its impact and the unknown aftermath of this storm have resulted in this decision to seek another date to play the LSU-Florida game. We have to be sensitive to the possible imminent disruption to the state of Florida and in particular the Gainesville and surrounding area.”

At this time the schools do not have a common open date on which to reschedule the game, so the schools and SEC Office will make every effort to find a scheduling solution with the possible movement of other games on the schools’ schedules. Read more.

They knew they were missing 4 dlineman and were looking for a way out the whole time. So they delay delay delay unti the only option is to cancel and it's not even the only option now. It's Thursday. It can still be moved. Take to Tampa, Atlanta or whatever.

With the delay in making a decision they should forfeit this match. Puts us a game behind because Florida admins wouldn't make the obvious decision to move the game. State of Emergency should dictate a schools ability to hold games. SEC did a poor job of stepping here.

Disgraceful on the part of UF. Could have easily found a neutral site with some foresight and planning. Cost all these kids a game after a lot of hard work. Pitiful.

Sankey and the SEC can go f--k themselves. Their solution is have LSU cancel a game with a non conference opponent and play in November 19th and then turn around and play A&M on Thanksgiving Day in a damn stupid game the SEC wanted LSU to play in to accomodate the damn Aggies. I just wish the SEC gave as much consideration to LSU and our scheduling as it seems to about everone else. It is absolute crap.

We know they are lying because of the announcement earlier this week that The game Will not be Moved from Gainsville. Pecker necks
