When App hosted Miami in 2016, the Canes were really paranoid about hotels. Everyone who plays at App State stays at the same hotel, with the exception of NMSU who took a cheaper, but further away, option in Hickory. That hotel has its own catering, enough rooms, meeting space and is basically locked down for the team. Never had an issue . No fire alarms at 3 a.m. or anything like that. When Wake came up in 2017, there was a sign out front saying "Welcome Wake Forest Football!" Nothing happened. It was well know some stAte assistant coaches went out drinking on a Wednesday night in 2015 before the Thursday night game. Nothing happened. Worst thing to happen to a visiting team at that hotel was that some App State co-eds swiped right on several GaSo FB players Tinder accounts in 2015 to talk trash to them.

For Da U, they were so paranoid, they told the media they were staying in Hickory. Didn't say where, though. In reality, they stayed at the same hotel that every other team does, but they didn't allow the welcoming sign or any hints they were going to be there. And guess what? Nothing happened.

So yeah, not surprising they try to take the side door out of the contract.

I'd heard the stories of a few coaches going out drinking the night before. We had a Football ops guy get in trouble soon after that for a public intox. That staff had some interesting characters who had this weird ability to be as unfocused as possible the night before a game, yet turn around the next day and be completely on point.

Anyway, back to Miami.

About a year before they were to visit Jonesboro, they sent a couple football ops guys on a scouting trip to figure out what the lay of the land looks like.

Story goes that they left town convinced that our facilities were terrible, we had no hotel space, and they were too good to play here.

Miami scouts and plans trips like they are Alabama visiting Auburn. They are paranoid about anything that isn't perfect. I'm fairly confident its a Mark Richt thing.

To go along with that story, supposedly they told us that because our visitors locker room was so poor, they would use our home locker room and we were to use the visitors.

After our new ops building is done won't the old home dressing room becomes for the visitors? Maybe they would lower themselves to visit then. Nahhh...just take their money!!

From the UGA alums in my family, Richt's MO is to always stay out of town. The reasoning is that they're away from all the game day atmosphere and partying. Supposedly he learned this from Bobby Bowden (apparently FSU even went to Thomasville, GA for home games.) I can't confirm or deny it, but I've heard that pretty often.

It's not about the hurricane, it's about their complete unwillingness to either schedule within a reasonable time frame, or pay the buyout.

I mean, everyone else has either paid the buyout or rescheduled. I'm not sure why Miami can't do either.

Yeah, hurricane had zero to do with it. It was used as an excuse.
Not many hurricanes around Jonesboro except at JHS
