Hurricane Nate converges on Tallahassee ahead of Miami-FSU

There’s a hurricane headed up to Tallahassee this weekend. And no, that’s not a cheesy pun. After the original Miami-FSU game scheduled in mid-September was moved back due to Hurricane Irma, it seems yet another hurricane is threatening UM’s biggest game of the year. Tropical Depression #16, projected to grow into Category 1 Hurricane Nate by Saturday, is expected to make landfall in the Florida panhandle on Sunday morning. While no decision has been made on changing the gametime as of yet, UM officials say there will be a verdict sometime Thursday morning, per Barry Jackson.

There will be Tropical Storm conditions hitting the gulf and the panhandle by Saturday night, causing the ACC and program officials to consider moving the game to Saturday morning or even Friday night.

Take a look at some of the weather coverage Cam has already provided and stay tuned to SOTU as we have more on this developing situation.

Thread Choice for Saturday is in

If Hurricane Nate doesn’t take away our rivalry weekend and everything holds up, Miami will head into Doak Campbell Stadium wearing...*drumroll please*... the pure white “Stormtroopers”! I, for one, am a fan of this kit and I think they look clean, maybe even angelic. Call us the “Angels of Death” descending on Tallahassee.

Other Chatter

Matt Porter wrote up a great profile on the 25 year anniversary of Michael Barrow’s hit on FSU’s Tamarick Vanover in the Canes-Noles game back in 1992.

For their part, the importance of the rivalry with FSU is not lost on the players and they are ready to end the seven game slide against the Noles.

Big fan of this graphic, for obvious reasons. While we have to throw numbers out to an extent for this rivalry and anything can happen, it still brings a smile to my face that Miami comes into this game leading FSU in every major category.

That’s about it for me, Canes fans. I’ll be heading up north today to be a part of the Tally Takeover this weekend. It’s our time! I’m ready for the streak to finally fall and can’t wait to be a part of that in person!

Go Canes!
