Recommended Posts

Brian Woodson @bdtwoodson 

West Virginia football will not be traveling to N.C. State this weekend due to weather issues related to Hurricane Florence. No decision on whether to play the game later in the season has been made.

Babcock is taking some heat on social media for the lack of empathy in the statement.  

As well he should.  Pretty tone deaf to be critical of a team when Fayetteville is about to get jackhammered by a major hurricane.  I can’t particularly fault ECU for declining to come when they may well not be able to get back for a week plus.

And then the VT Football program just compounds it.  One, to think that Matthew (a minimal hurricane at that time that was 80 Miles offshore) is comparable to a direct hit from a Category 4 hurricane.  Two, to add gasoline to the already hot flames Babcock created.

If what I've read is accurate, ECU is planning on going to Florida because they play USF next week.  They can go down there to practice and stay out of dodge from the hurricane.  I don't blame them if that's true.  I wish they still were able to play Saturday but in situations like this it's kind of hard to be too upset.

That was a scheduled tweet that the social media guy had made days ago to be posted and he forgot to take it off the scheduled tweets. He’s since apologized.

ECU is in Greenville, not Fayetteville.  However, ECU announced their decision before contacting VT to let them know they were cancelling.  Both parties agreed on Monday to wait until Wednesday to make an announcement.  ECU jumped the gun and headed south to Disney World for a few days before prepping for their game @ USF next week.

Haysi did something similar to this once if I'm not mistaken?

I cant remember the year, but Haysi did host Sullivan North on a Saturday after North played Happy Valley on Thursday I believe it was. Man that was a cold game to do in short sleeves.
