Already Rescheduled Once UM vs FSU Again Under Weather Watch
There is NOTHING better then a good College Rivalry Game and University of Miami and Florida State University has always been a good one. But Mother Nature does NOT like this game this year. Already rescheduled from September 16, 2017 due to Hurricane Irma, the game set for October 7, 207 is now again under a Weather watch from Tropical Storm Nate.
Another tropical depression has formed in the southern Caribbean that could become Hurricane Nate by the weekend and threaten the Florida panhandle – including Tallahassee, site of the nationally televised game at 3:30 p.m. Saturday.
Tropical Storm Nate could become Hurricane Nate possibly by Sunday, the National Hurricane Center said late Wednesday morning, and the five-day cone of uncertainty includes Tallahassee.
Defensive coordinator Manny Diaz said this about the newest weather situation: “Why not, right? Remember in Apollo 13, when they’re trying to land the ship and the guy comes and says, ‘There’s a hurricane in the landing spot.’ And the guy says, ‘Well, should we even tell them? Can they do anything about it? No.’
“That’s kind of the point we’re at right now. It doesn’t affect anything in our preparation. We’ll go play if they let us play.’’
