Title: TN State/Hampton, 9/15 in Hampton CANCELED!
Post by: Strike79 on September 11, 2018, 05:19:38 PM
It was just announced that TSU's game at Hampton this upcoming weekend canceled due to the approaching hurricane expected to impact the Carolinas coast.  Perhaps not unexpected for most of you reading this, but it will be the SECOND WEEKEND IN A ROW that TSU's game was canceled due to bad weather.  Their game last Saturday nite against Jackson State, Southern Heritage Classic, was canceled due to lightning and driving rainstorms in Memphis.  The officials did not call the cancellation of that game until three hours past the 6pm scheduled kickoff.

This is shaping up to be QUITE a season for the Big Blue.  In my 37 years residency in Nashville, have NEVER observed two games canceled in a single season due to weather or anything else..........WOW!!  :(

I was wondering why they did not play this weeks game in Nashville?

Teams aren't just willing to give up home games.

^^^^good question, n’fan.

And, interestingly enough, it was announced either last nite or early this morning that Univ of VA’s game against Ohio U this upcoming weekend HAS, in fact, been moved to Nashville. They’re playing in Vandy’s stadium.

White folks don’t mess around.  :nod:

WOW...that's interesting. A hot topic here in NC yesterday was ECU cancelling it's game at VT. VT's AD caught some heat for his comments on the issue. What makes it worse is ECU is now flying to ORLANDO this morning for a game against UCF....NEXT SATURDAY

Strike -

Y’all know some of them folks will sit in the stands, Hurricane be damned, to watch their team play. They moved it for the safety of their own fan base. Yet, if there is a slight chance of a drizzle, our attendance drops faster than a mug....and don’t even mention if it’s below 54.99 degrees Fahrenheit.

Alum^^^unless it’s televised and I’m somewhere near a tv if it IS televised, I doubt if i’ll see the Ohio U band.

But I HAVE heard over the years that they have “swag” and really rock for a  PWC band.  :lol:

Btw, Mrs. Strike has several friends who are OU alums. Am told their yard is one of the most beautiful college campuses in the country.  ;)
