We get the TV coverage. Period.

Easy solution is to move the Miami Toledo game to 3:30

If they simply swap the start times of our game and the Miami game TV coverage issues go away as ESPN2 can carry both...

Chance of rain forecast for Sat night. Idk I guess this thing has been just too uncertain for them to roll the dice. I despise noon games though

No, I'm pretty certain it was based on giving the fans, teams and everyone else enough to time to travel safely throughout the day instead of the late evening and night. 3 1/2 hours is 3 1/2 hours, I think its a good move.

I agree. Clemson certainly worries about its fans!!!

But it will affect those traveling. I think it’s a good move.

You guys are causing people to think we are delusional. It serves absolutely no purpose beyond that.

If this were Monken or Fritz coached Southern then it would be a different story. But GSU is still in recovery mode from the worst coach of all time.

Well I think that all the Up Roar about the weather is so the coots can avoid a beating from the Marshall Thundering Herd, and they are hoping the game will be cancelled!!!

Speaking of buying water, the Bi Lo on 321 in cootlumbia is the first I've seen so far that is price gouging, they was selling 16 Oz bottle water cases of no name for $10 bucks a case. The IGA had 16.9 Oz bottle cases Nestle' for $6.95!!!

74TIGER, you are 100% right. It irks me to no end to see what a bunch of namby-pambies our country is becoming, and the lawyers and the government are the two biggest reasons. We’re raising kids who are going to look for every excuse in the book to not do something when it looks like there is a chance that the weather might make it a little more difficult or chancy. Would the ESPN Gameday and the Notre Dame game in 2015 go off today like they did then, if we were looking at the same circumstances now? I bet not, and that’s a shame.


It will be better for people traveling back to eastern parts

the weather AFTER the game to give people time to get home and keep people off the interstates when the storm is rolling in. We use a lot of state troopers etc to manage traffic, and I'm sure the state & locals will want to have all their law enforcement available once the storm rolls in this way.

Most of their fans will be gone by 9:00pm so it's a low risk decision.

We can't even release balloons anymore and straws are being need everywhere. No way we will get approval to spray the southeast in flex seal.

More important things then playing football imo. Those troopers that will be there Saturday could be used for helping people from the storms. The playoff committee wouldn’t keep us out at 12-1 or 13-0 because we didn’t play ga southern.

Those troopers from the upstate are going to be in Myrtle Beach helping people before the storm even hits?

Oh yeah, and the storm will only hit SC as a Tropical Storm. Stop watching the mainstream hype media dude.


You mean the ones under mandatory evacuation orders?


Posted: Sep 12, 2018 5:39 PM
 

let the troopers do as they must. We can survive without them.


I long for the good old days

let’s kick it off at 1:00, tv or no tv. The #### with ESPN, Nike and.....whom I leaving out?


Personally this doesn't really help much.

The problem is going to be driving home after the game. Saturday at about 6 PM there is supposed to be a Tropical Storm sitting either on top of Charleston or somewhere between here and Santee. So it's not the wisest idea to take a drive through that on the way home, especially considering governor Foghorn Leghorn has 26-E shutdown.

Not that it matters, but a lot of folks from the coast are probably going to sit this one out.

Clemson area is not going to have that much of a problem. Many people in the upstate can be home in an hour.

However, many Tiger fans travel greater distances for the game. I haven't missed a home game in I don't know when. I made Norte Dame, but couldn't get home for two days because all of the roads washed out.

I wish the game was played Friday because I would have made it.

Now, I'm looking at missing the game. In Sumter, they are predicting 75 plus winds by 2pm on Saturday and not getting any better until late Sunday. I cannot imagine having to drive through those conditions and take the risk of a tree falling or not being able to get home again. This time, there are not many hotel rooms available because of coastal evacuations.

Noon is a wise decision and those blessed to be in the upstate and able to go to the came should be thankful. I don't miss Tiger home games and I make a good many away games.

For those going, be loud and proud for the Tigers.

The biggest issue for those at the game will be the traffic. There will no be limited to no trooper support due to the storm.

So should we cancel a game when there's a hurricane in Florida since it might impact a few Clemson fans in Florida. Of course not. It will be fine in Clemson. Play the game.

What does Florida have to do with South Carolina? Some people have no consideration for their fellow Tigers.

Jacksonville FL has as much to do with Clemson as Myrtle Beach.

Which is basically none.

In Columbia, the Fighting Chickens are going to have an uphill battle to improve on last year's record, since they have just cancelled their home game vs Marshall.

Florence is a serious storm.

Let's hope it only goes down in history as the Coots' primary excuse for their lousy 2018 record, and nothing of consequence to the rest of us.

I thought that the excuse to not lose to the herd they would chicken out. What if it rains when we were to play them?

The point is that it won't be fine in 2/3rds of the rest of the state Saturday where probably 2/3rds of the fans live and would have to travel from and back to...you seem rather selfish; get your head out your ####


1/3 of the state is under mandatory evacuation so they


Posted: Sep 12, 2018 5:47 PM
 

shouldn’t be there now and shouldn’t be going back on Saturday. Many of the Clemson fans I know in the lowcountry evacuated to the upstate anyway. If people don’t want to travel they don’t have to. It will probably be a beautiful afternoon in Clemson.

If the weather doesn't ruin your than Georgia Southern will. Prepare for a miserable day.


Re: Agree that it should be a nice day in Tigertown and noon


Posted: Sep 12, 2018 6:08 PM
 

kickoff is probably the best option for playing the game under the circumstances (USuC apparently has now cancelled theirs) but it's too bad that thousands of Tiger fans won't be there in their tailgate spots and seats because of the various impacts of Flo.


I’ll take overreactions for $500, Alex.***

not good optics to be playing a ball game while folks in the other part of the state are getting smashed by a hurricane


Re: should have moved it to friday..


Posted: Sep 12, 2018 10:44 PM
 

A weak Hurricane and by Saturday it'll be nothing more than a tropical storm. Will it make people without power in Myrtle Beach feel better to know Clemson football isn't playing 350 miles away? I don't get it.

The bad optics would be canceling a game and inflicting serious economic pain to the Clemson region when Saturday will be sunny. Canceling would be a terrible decision.
