RE: Irma schedule moves
Miami not playing is a joke. Miami has the resources to travel with the whole team to get them out of the hurricane path. They can also take the coaching staffs family up to arkansas as well and everyone hang out in Arkansas for a few days

They would have received $300,000 that would have covered many of the expenses. Hotels in Jonesboro were offering lodging and meals were offered as well.

In Jonesboro Saturday (or Friday) or not in Jonesboro, the storm is going to do what the storm is going to do, which right now can be anything from utter devastation in Miami to light damage depending on the actual track.

Actually, Miami currently has some budget issues with sports. They are not at a G5 level but the are not as rich as you think.

Well, to take great pictures & videos though. I'm sure many will want to sell them to the Weather Channel. Plus, pretty adventurous!

I know! Far more risk on the field than just wind & water! This pic is obviously just Fake News! 03-wink

And according to weather reports, it's going down to Category 4 by the time it his Florida, possibly 3! Sheesh, what are people worried about!

UAB's AD finally did something right and made this happen. FIU will move into UAB's new practice facility (UAB is on the road), game is 6 pm Friday with free admission and parking. I plan to be there.

Are those pictures taken in Arkansas? You know, the location where the game is going to be?

The "risk" is.... what exactly? That they won't be able to get back to Miami? So instead they're going to STAY in Miami during that monster storm. Brilliant move, Einstein. Instead of getting their players out of harm's way on the school's dime, they stranded them in Florida (if they're too poor to evacuate, well, tough luck for them).

USF @ UConn moved from 12 noon to 10:30 AM to allow USF more travel time back to Florida before Irma arrives.

I still don't see the logic in that, as the weather will be pretty nasty in Tampa for an extended period of time, even if the eyewall never actually makes landfall on the Rast Coast of Florida.
