The decision to move the SEC matchup between the South Carolina Gamecocks and the Georgia Bulldogs appears to have been a wise one.

The game was rescheduled for Sunday, and while there hasn’t been any talk as of yet, it’s hard to imagine them being able to get the game ready to be played by tomorrow. Currently, the weather at kickoff is expected to sunny and a beautiful 75 degrees. You’d never guess if you looked out a window in South Carolina right now.
With hurricanes comes the threat of collateral damage. Downed trees, loose power lines and flooding. Officials are urging everyone in South Carolina to stay off the road unless it is absolutely necessary.
Please stay off the roads unless it is necessary. If you must travel beware of trees and power lines that may be down.

Often times when attempting to drive in this kind of storm, water can cause the car to stall, leaving you stranded for the duration of the storm. That’s certainly something to avoid if possible.
The groundscrew at Williams Brice stadium will surely be getting time and a half this week, as they’ll be working overtime to get the field ready for tomorrow.
