RE: USF @ UConn cancelled
I think if Miami hadn't canceled yesterday, they'd have stuck with the original plan to play it.

And I think the game should be played. The game is 2000 miles away from the storm. Its the safest place to be. The AAC should have a contingency fund to pay for accommodations for coaches and players wives and kids to get to Connecticut, and then to stay several more days as needed.

What is the alternative? You ride out the storm in Tampa? How is that better? You evacuate somewhere else?

Maybe I'm missing something, but don't come at me with "players have more important things to worry about." Players always have more important things to worry about. Tulane played an entire season on the road after Katrina when the school shut down. I bet you they had a lot more things to worry about. I bet Houston players and coaches have a lot to worry about this weekend but they're still going to Arizona. Again, treat the game as an evacuation. It seemed like this WAS the plan until Miami canceled a road game yesterday and provided a precedent for this. I think a bigger issue is that they don't want their week thrown off with travel delays right before a Friday game with Illinois next week that might determine whether or not they go to the Peach Bowl. And I understand that, but let's not act like this is some kind of unplayable game for safety reasons and it's so gauche of us to scrutinize these decisions.

I agree.
I also agree Miami canceling at Arkansas St game made this possible
I believe Miami shouldn't of canceled; it was selfish, cowardly and they won't make up the Arky St game.

I think canceling games in Arkansas and CT are unusual, but I'm not going to second guess the decisions.

I think the fun from this decision will be had later in the year...

Will the USF @ Uconn game be made up since they are in the same division of the AAC? The AAC CCG could hypothetically depend on the results of the game.

No mutual bye week this year for UConn and USF (until now), so the game can't be rescheduled.

Cancelling a division game that cant be rescheduled is stupid. No excuse for this.

It hurts our team, as it creates a situation where us and a division rival can each have 1 conference loss, and we would lose the division even if we won head to head.

Nevertheless, football isn't the important thing here, and i totally trust our admins, who are on the ground and have all the facts, so I support the decision.

It would be one thing if the game was in Florida buts 2,000 miles away. Do i get to not show up to work this weekend because my uncle lives in Florida and will be affected? Does my dad not have to show up to court because his brother lives in Florida and will be affected by the hurricane?

While we're at it why doesn't have of college football cancel their games since they have team members with family in Florida?

I mean come on the hurricane is going to hit either way and cancelling a game changes nothing except to hurt the schools. It literally does more harm than good. Where does it end?

Interesting. There may be a way to salvage this game.

The USF-UConn Game Can Be Rescheduled. Here’s How.

No mutual bye weeks for these teams, so would need rescheduling help from ECU and Houston.

I completely agree with this, its stupid and there is no good reason to do it.
