Games Postponed?

Postby edavis3 on Sun Aug 27, 2017 8:37 am

Heard on local radio this morning that there are several games, including Texas vs Maryland in danger of being postponed this weekend due to Harvey. Any local Austinites hearing this?

Seems like there is precedent if fans from Houston aren't able to get here.

Today's scheduled game between Sam Houston State and Richmond has been postponed. #neverforget #wewillrebuild

If Harvey is an issue still on Friday/Saturday, we're gonna' have bigger fish to fry than a football game....Americas fourth largest city(way bigger than Dallas ;) ) will literally be washed away if that's the case.

Byu/LSU probably moving to Baton Rouge. If Harvey moves back out over the Gulf and makes landfall as a hurricane again Houston is straight fucked.

I would assume it will be postponed or cancelled.

When they postponed in 2008 it was because they thought a tropical storm would be happening in Austin at game time. It ended up barely raining that day.

I thought I remembered that it didn't rain that day.

If there was any plan at all to postpone or cancel you'd think there would be some mention with six days to go.

It was Ike, which ended up hitting Galveston.

Austin got nothing.

But Deloss said at the time that a consideration was Houston area fans being able to travel, state resources, etc.

If they don't play Saturday, would they be able to reschedule ? How would that be handled ?

I don't see an easy or obvious place on schedule to do it.

If the current forecast holds it sounds like Houston will escape with only 5-10 more inches. While way more than they need or want, it's a way better outlook than when 20+ more were expected.

I'd suspect the game goes on if it doesn't get any worse down there.

Unless they postponed to Sunday/Monday there is no way it gets played. Maryland has a game during Texas' only bye week. You'd have to play it after the Big 12 CCG in December.

Not even remotely mentioned in Hermans press conference today. This game is happening.
