GT @ UCF cancelled.
What a shitshow. Waste of a season entirely.

7 home games, now down to 5 with 2 of the top 3 cancelled.

At this rate ucf isn't going to have a strong enough schedule to even have the possibility of being ranked.

RE: GT @ UCF cancelled.
Why is it being cancelled? From what I've seen thus far, is that damage reports have been relatively weak. Did a 10 foot storm surge hit Orlando that I'm not aware of?

Apparently Rick "Lord Voldemort" Scott volunteered our campus to host 1,000+ National Guard troops and their entire armada.

This is getting out of control. I understand safety and all, but NC gets hit by hurricanes a lot and we have no issues. We had major flooding last year during our hurricane. All we had to do was move the game against Navy to our bye week, no issue. We did not have to cancel two games. We also were able to play our game at USF while the hurricane hit.

That's an honorable thing to do. I'm not sure why this upsets you given what just happened in Florida.

You're right. One size fits all when you're talking about hurricanes and football games.

Or maybe UCF doesn't have a bye week in common with Memphis or GT.

Seriously this blows, but there's not really anything that can be done. The campus has been shut down and classes won't even resume until Thursday. With nearly the whole team off campus and spread out all over the place getting everyone back to put on a football game is just not possible, especially while the stadium and practice fields are being used as a staging center for the National Guard.

Why didn't he offer UF's campus? There's an empty stadium in Downtown Orlando with more than enough space to use.

Lakeland has plenty of open space, much closer to easy interstate access? Why UCF? Rick Scott has done ZERO favors for UCF, why should we do anything for him?

I understand the Memphis situation however Georgia Tech game should have been played.
