Texting this morning with coaches at Tobacco Road ACC schools. UNC, NC State & Duke all played on during Hurricane Matthew one year ago. They can't believe people are complaining about games being moved/cancelled today for Irma, a much bigger storm. Said one coach: "Playing those games was one of the stupidest things I've ever seen. The next day the weather was perfect. We could've killed someone who came to that on Saturday."

Arkansas State athletic director Terry Mohajir said moving the Miami game to Friday was an option but that Miami's administration decided not to have the team make the trip. Mohajir had numerous conversations with Miami AD Blake James before the game was ultimately cancelled. "We are currently working through all the variables associated with the game not being played," Mohajir said in a statement.

Miami athletic director Blake James said it was a difficult decision to cancel all weekend games, including the football team's contest at Arkansas State, but safety was most important. "We made the collective decision that we simply cannot put our student-athletes, coaches and staff in danger travelling to and from contests," James said in a statement. "As we have seen from the tragic impact of Hurricane Harvey—and from South Florida's own experiences—the impacts of hurricanes can be devastating and long-lasting, and can make travel extremely difficult and dangerous."
