Miami at Arkansas St canceled: won't be made up
Miami not only won't be making up the Arkansas St road game this year...but ever I hear. Sucks for Arky St who was primed for a huge crowd.

Will they be compensating ASU?

Compensation is they don't have to pay Miami. Have to figure there is AOG clause in the contract.

It will be a nominal amount. Sorry you lose the game, would have been good exposure.

AState saves the $300,000 we owed Miami for the guarantee
They owe $650,000 unless it is impossible to play. ESPN and AState offered to move it to Friday.

If a hurricane is coming your way, doesn't it make more sense to go in the opposite direction? They could prepare to evacuate now.

This is a ploy just to get out of playing the game at a G5 school. But I guess since they're the Hurricanes, with a mascot that's the last to stay before the surge comes in, I guess they want to live up to that billing.

its 650K, but the real loss is to the city of Jonesboro economically.

RE: Miami at Arkansas St canceled: won't be made up
What I don't get is that the other Florida schools are still playing their games. If this game was played in Miami then yes, it should be cancelled and hope everyone is safe. But they are playing in Arkansas and this is a weak excuse when FIU, FAU and USF still have to go back to Florida also. So, the Miami AD said they were concerned about the team not being able to make it back to Miami....so does that mean they are staying in Miami or are they going to evacuate? If they are going to evacuate, they still have concerns about not make it back home so where are they going to go?
