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

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

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?

You know, sometimes being a good human is about more than just scratching each other's backs.

I'm sure you'd be saying exactly the same thing if Houston cancelled the Texas Tech and Rice games because of Harvey and an incompetent governor.

RE: GT @ UCF cancelled.
I know UCF fans are pissed, but it is probably a good thing that the game is cancelled since the players wouldnt have been able to practice. GT's offense is not something you see every week. It would have been really unfair to the defensive players. With a full week of practice, this is probably a great game.

Wow...so now UCF will have only 10 game this season? Count them out of any access bowl race.

Is USF going to be cancelled also? That would put USF in a bind also.

Just burn your bye week to play an 11th game.

I wouldn't hold your admin to the fire. There are millions without power. Putting football first this fall actually shows a serious lack of priorities.

Has the power gone out in Orlando? This would be an issue if there isn't any certainty if the power will be on by Saturday.

I don't know anyone who considered us a real contender for an access bowl. But if we go unbeaten and win the AAC at 11-0 we're obviously in. Not that I think this is a team that can do that.

I'm sorry guys, we are going to be no help to the conference this season. Our fans really could've used this game as a distraction from everything too..

For Georgia Tech, I speculate that the team is unable to practice this week and prepare for the game.

Are we the only team 1-0 and feel like our season is toast? Hopefully the Ncaa gives us a waiver for a 13th game next year.

While Norvell led the charge to cancel the Memphis @ UCF game (likely to avoid 0-10), this one was entirely on Rick Scott.
