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.

No the notion of sending the team back to Florida then saying good luck to you is mind boggling.

I cant believe you ok with forcing them to go back to Florida where the might die vs evacuating them to a place where they already have hotels and such reserved.

You seriously think you know what's safer for USF players and family than USF administrators? 01-wingedeagle

Never claimed i did. But it doesn't take a genius to see sending people to a disaster zone they wont be able to get out of is a bad idea.

Especially considering Tampa is now directly in the path of the hurricane.

Also blindly believing that administrators know whats best is stupid notion. They are people too not some infallible intelligence beyond our own.

So going by this logic the judge requiring my dad to go to court while his brother is being hit by a hurricane is a bit much and my dad should be allowed to skip going?

I don't think you know what logic means.

No i do just because you don't like it doesn't change it. My cousin was fighting in Afghanistan when and getting shot at the week i had to take a final, should i have been allowed to be exempt from it? Because going by that logic i feel its asking to much of me to try and take a test when my cousin may die.

I don't live in Florida and I'm not privy to the discussions leading up to the decision, so I am not going to trash the officials who made it. I'm just saying that from what I know (which isn't much), I disagree with it.

I honestly think usf was afraid of losing so they saw the perfect excuse to avoid it by canceling the game.

Please stop the BS
I just evacuated from Miami to Atlanta on Thursday it took me 7 hours to get to Orlando a trip you can do in 3.5 hours normally, 6 hours from Orlando to Gainesville normally a two hour trip and 23 hours to get to Atlanta the entire trip the highways and sideways were gridlock and at least 45 minutes to an hour to get gas. Now we expect the entire state to feel hurricane winds and you are talking about USF scared to play UConn. Shut the hell up man that's one dumbest comments I heard on this board. People are going to die in this storm and we don't know if we will have homes to get to

How low can IQs on this forum drop? Florida is facing massive hurricane and posters are whining about canceled ball games? 01-wingedeagle
Looks like we're hitting new depths

My only problem with this is they decided it's better to cancel the football game and force the students to have to go through what you just had to. Rather than just evacuate their families to Connecticut.

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?

USF was never IN Connecticut. It's clear you have no idea how travel works for college football. The majority of teams leave the day before a game and travel home directly after the game is over.

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....
