RE: GT @ UCF cancelled.
At least they need to get more specific on what other options were looked at, such at why the Citrus Bowl was not used for the game considering the next event at the Citrus Bowl is Nov 10th.

I also cannot understand why Rick Scott specifically went for the UCF stadium when there are so many other staging areas that could have been used including the Citrus Bowl (next event Nov 10th), Central Florida Fairgrounds, Orange County Convention Center (next event Sept 25th), Silver Spurs Arena, Stetson Stadium, Lakeland, Florida State Fairgrounds, etc etc. All these other options are in Central Florida and did not have events which would have been affected.

As far as the rumor that the students were with their families, how is it that all the other FBS teams in the state are playing?

Lastly, as far as the condition of the community to host a game, I would like to point out that Tampa, Gainesville, and Boca Raton are all hosting games and they were affected equally or worse than Orlando.

Just my two cents for what it is worth, but by all means, feel free to shout from your soapboxes how bad of a human being I am........ I just don't see why these other options were explored by UCF (or at least give us that info on what "alternatives" were looked at) or Rick Scott's decision when there were many other perfectly good options for him that did not require adversely affecting a University's event and the peanuts they make from their event.

Nobody thinks you are a bad human being. But you don't seem to take incoming very well. E.g., I noted in my last post that Aresco affirmed that other options were looked at but that nothing viable was found.

I'm not sure why that's not good enough for you? Do you really think Aresco and UCF didn't consider the Citrus Bowl?

As for Governor Scott's decision, do you really think the governor owes an explanation to football fans as to why the stadium was the best place to base the National Guard?

Seriously?

It would go a long way if the AD and Aresco were more specific.

We need a contingency plan in place where the players can stay together in a safe place. Have a few different hotels ready to go. I went to the ucf area yesterday. There is literally no damage that I could see.

Yes he does, you are assuming a lot. The government in all its forms has proven to be incompetent from time to time. While the football game is not a priority, the questions should be asked and answered. It is quite possible that he chose ucf's because it was the first one he thought of, not because it worked best.

The questions are legit. The ansers should be too. If the answers arent legit then it should be gone over to see what mistakes were made and what could be done better. A football game is a little thing, being organized and gettinh the best out of your resources durring a natural disastor is a big thing.

They are, but only when we hold them to account. Blind acceptance of their assertions is the second biggest issue after not having publicly funded campaigns.

Answering questions pertaining to canceled football is unlikely to tease out inefficiencies in how national guard resources are being deployed. And so far, OTown and others have only expressed concern about football.

Usually, that kind of useful feedback is derived when the logistics employed fail to meet the needs of those in distress efficiently and effectively.

Failure to meet needs of hurricane victims give rise to legit questions about resource use, those about football are a waste of time. If putting the national guard in UCF stadium is hindering their mission, we will know it without answering questions about canceling the Tech game.
