Timing on this pretty good for games to not get cancelled. 1 day later and yeah huge issues.

If that's the situation, I expect more cancels and moves. Fans far away from danger may be frustrated, but no decision maker will ever get fired for erring on side of caution and moving or canceling a game. But if he counts on a hurricane arriving one day later and it arrives one day sooner and there is a massive mess or worse, people get injured because game wasn't canceled, his head will roll immediately plus be pilloried in the media, etc.

This is a huge problem in America today. Decision makers SHOULD get fired for "erring on the side of caution" when the risk is practically non-existent. They waste a huge amount of time and money and oftentimes they actually put more people in danger. Case in point: Miami's decision to cancel their game at Arkansas State.

Players board an airplane. Fly 1000 miles to Memphis. Spend the night. Play a game. Add a night in Memphis or Jonesboro.
Hurricane does or doesn't make landfall on Sunday. Miami assesses the situation and makes a decision about what to do next, but in the meantime they are 1000 miles away from danger.

Not catching your logic.

The logic is, the players families homes are about to be destroyed in another potential Hurricane Andrew. And we are worried about a football game? Priorities.........

So I guess we should just cancel football altogether this weekend because you know the players from Florida that playing for non-Florida schools are worried about their families too!

FIU- game vs Alcorn St ppd. Not sure of makeup date

FAU plays at Wisconsin
Florida hosts Northern Colorado
Miami plays at Arkansas St

Given the choice of staying in the direct path of the hurricane or going to Wisconsin for the duration, I'm sure most are choosing to head north.

And if they get delayed a couple days, there's a lot worse places to stay than Madison.

I know that Arkansas State is getting it rough. It's not fair. With that said, what Miami might go through is far worse. They might have 300 million in campus damage depending on if/how it hits them.

Football is so beyond secondary it's not even funny.

Charleston Southern-South Carolina State is postponed; both athletic departments say they'll try to reschedule for later in the season.

The Presbyterian-Citadel game is now at Presby, instead of El Cid.

Yes, the FL governor has closed all state campuses until Tuesday, so all campus events are canceled, including athletics.
