It is currently 86 degrees and partly cloudy in Gainesville, Fla. Nice football weather, no?
If not for Hurricane Matthew’s thought to be inevitable landfall on the Florida coast, there could be football. Right there! Right now! But in the name of safety, the University of Florida canceled its game against LSU, with no makeup date in mind.
And the Tigers aren’t too pleased not to be playing football, especially a game that could be crucial in deciding the SEC standings.

LSU VS UF needs to be reschedule I don't care if we play in somebody back yard.

Junior defensive lineman Greg Gilmore:
Makes me sick we aren't playing right now.

Apparently running back Derrius Guice had some second thoughts about letting the world know his displeasure. Not to worry, we captured his tweet before it was deleted.
Sophomore receiver Jazz Ferguson:
Should be playing football right now. @LSUfootball

Freshman cornerback Saivon Smith:

Junior receiver D.J. Chark had a more positive outlook:
Gotta learn to accept the things you can't change… we got a home game Saturday.. be excited for that
