Weather or Not: Florida Gators Face Costly Decision



Updated 5:16 p.m., Sept. 3

Game declared no contest:

Social media provided another news gem early Sunday (Aug. 31).

It was then I noticed on my Twitter feed that the previous night’s college football game between Florida and Idaho in Gainesville, Fla., had ended just after it began, shortly before 10 p.m. Severe weather was to blame. The scheduled 7 p.m. start never happened, and the game was deemed unplayable after just one play, a Gators kickoff return.

But the real story is, what next? And the fact that there has been no announcement as of this posting (9/3/14) shows that there is no easy decision. Money? Of course it’s an issue.


However, a Facebook friend of mine commented that if Florida cancels the game, it might end the season with five victories, one short of bowl eligibility. After all, Idaho was chosen supposedly because it would go into the “W” column.

So it would appear that replaying the game in December would make more sense. Then again, the Gators and Idaho have the final say. Stay tuned.
