This and flights out of Florida are booked solid with folks fleeing. Bad optics for a plane leaving out with a football team going to play a game while everyone is running for their lives....

So usf cant charter a private plane and evacuate the players and their families?

At this point is there anything left to charter? Hell I don't know. And I'd bet the good'ole NCAA would find something illegal about that and hammer USF (just kidding...sort of....)

Ya thats how it works when their is no hurricane coming. If thats the excuse that tells me they where not planning some way to get them out sooner due to the hurricane. Which is not a good sign at all.

Ncaa granted fsu the ability to charter the players families out. No reason usf shouldn't get the same treatment.

Stupid comments ahead of a cat 5 hurricane about to impact entire state and some of you are wondering how can you charter planes to play a football game and take along families.
As I said stupid comments

No we are wondering how they can charter planes to get families to safety. But if thats a stupid comment then I can't help you.

USF is going to charter planes just for families of football players - not for any other student's parents - just so a football game can be played? We're going to expend time and energy on that while a massive Cane is threatening the whole USF community? That's really a mind-boggling idea.

USF did the right thing in canceling the game. I support our administrators. 04-cheers

So please explain how they are handling it is any better than what im saying.

Why on earth would USF evacuate families to Connecticut? 01-wingedeagle

Because thats where the team is.... plus its 2,000 miles away.

But apparently usf thinks its better to send the kids back to Florida where they wont be able to get out. All the while claiming they where doing a good thing.

That's where the team is? Why on earth would a USF team be in Connecticut when there's a hurricane in Tampa?

This notion of prioritizing games is just mind-boggling.

Because there's not a hurricane in Connecticut?

... and there's not a hurricane in 5,000 other places as well. Sheesh. 07-coffee3
