It was the right thing to do. Hope it can be rescheduled.

Really questionable decision. Should have moved game up and played. No weather will be in Boone until Sunday at earliest.

As disappointing as it feels, it is the right move. A decision has to be made before Southern Miss starts to travel. The good news is that it looks like they are still trying to get it re-scheduled. I'm guessing the option mentioned previously of 10/6 with a re-scheduled Arkansas State game will be our best bet.

Sort of surprised. Last Ray’s Weather I saw sounded like Boone may not get wet until Sunday. Florence must keep changing her mind.

NOAA supports the decision.

Was playing in Hattiesburg not an option? I'd rather give up a home game than drop a game entirely or try to squeeze one in during the critical conference portion of our season.

There isn't an open date for us to play.

We were not going to play in Hattiesburg due to travel costs.

20% chance of rain Saturday. I get that MUCH more important things are happening in the state, but...

Southern Miss couldn't sell enough tickets to an extra game to cover our travel? Just surprises me unless there's some re-shuffling of other games that is what admin is planning on.

Remember it's not just the weather at the game site. It's also the availability of resources (security, medical, emergency), too. Surely many of those will be on standby for the eastern part of the state.

Next thing you know we’ll be calling off games because of snow in the forecast 😬

I may be in the minority, but this storm will have minimal impact on the high country and seems like a PR motivated move.

Oh well.

Or forced by our chancellor who panicked yesterday and cancelled classes for 2 days.

This I imagine has as much to do with the cancellation as anything. It's not simply game day weather in Boone.

Something tells me USM was quick to pull the trigger as well. Can't lose if they don't play.
