Because of Ike...


The Longhorn athletic department is keeping a close eye on the path of Hurricane Ike, which could hit the Texas coast about the same time the Arkansas game is scheduled to kick off Saturday afternoon.

“We’re trying to look at all our options,” UT athletics director DeLoss Dodds told the American-Statesman this morning.

Weather conditions will play a factor, as will any mandatory evacuation plans. Dodds said he’d have to consider contingency plans if the state “locks down all our roads and the campus is used for an evacuation spot.”

If the game is postponed, it could be scheduled Sept. 27, when both the Longhorns and Razorbacks have a bye week. But that date presents another set of difficulties since it conflicts with the Austin City Limits Festival, which brings music fans to the city. Hotel rooms could be in short supply, and other travel arrangements undoubtedly would be problematic.

In related news, officials from the University Co-Ops in Austin, San Antonio and Houston are traveling to College Station to learn how not to board up windows.

Godless swine? When did UT start scheduling A&M Kingsville?

Seriously, it is the height of dumb to cancel a game in Austin for fear of a hurricane.

I-35 is major evacuation route and many locals in Austin, including many on the UT campus, are designated shelters. So if a major storm strikes the Texas coast within 48 hours of kickoff, it makes perfect sense to keep a crowd of 100,000+ away so as not to clog up those valuable evacuation routes and shelters.

I agree, if this thing keeps on the projected path, I-37 out of Corpus, 59 North and I-35 North will be a parking lot. This could really cause problems for the Coastal Bend. We may need prayers by Thursday or Friday.

I-35 is a parking lot anyway. The last thing we need are a bunch of drunks and Satan-worshiping, sister-plowing Arkiesaws inbreds trying to navigate their way to a football game via said parking lot.

I totally agree, I remember being snot slingin drunk in The End Zone Club back in 96 against Mizzery, when Hurricane Bevo blew in from the North. Dropped about 8 inches of rain in less than an hour. Nobody melted, lightning was avoided and the game was completed. Ok, Ok, not snot slingin, but a light buzzz, for sure. Besides, me and my posse are drinkin and eatin with Fred Noe on the 27th. Forget about a reschedule.

see Baton Rouge on over to Mobile, Al with Gustav. Not only did they get the rain but tornadoes out the :Censor:.

For someone that has lived in the Valley, I can't believe you wrote that. People have to be able to get in and out of Austin and the rain will be a comin if the storm hits at Matagorda Bay.

The last projection I saw put the heart of the storm right over the Austin/San Antonio region Saturday afternoon. No way this game goes on with what is likely to be a tropical storm hanging over the city limits. If the storm continues to project as it is now, I wouldn't be surprised if DeLoss announces the games postponement within the next 24 hours. Maybe the hillbilly chicken-:Censor:ers can use the extra time to develop something resembling a football team.

I-35 runs from Laredo to San Antonio to Austin. The closest is gets to the coast is 140 miles, at SA. What kind of moron evacuates Laredo or SA because of a hurricane, except the new breed of panic babies ushered in by Katrina? By the time any hurricane hits SA, it is at most a bad rainstorm. Seriously, people from the valley evacuate TO SA.

Whiny panic babies. No one should evacuate SA or Austin for a storm. Have you looked at a map? Baton Rouge and Mobile are much closer to the coast, than either SA or Austin. Tell me the last time you heard about catastrophic hurricane damage to Austin? The worst that ever happens is bad flash flooding in the hill country near rivers.

Shelters in Austin? Seriously? Who are they sheltering?

People that are evacuating from the Gulf Coast. Here in SA we had 400 buses arrive to help evacuate people, with "Hundreds more" on the way.

for someone so "smart..." you leave a lot to be desired when it comes to common sense.

Why do you think the Lufkin/ Longview/ Tyler area was jam packed two weekends ago with Gustav folks from La? People want to get out of the path of the storm and they are going to do whatever it takes to keep their families safe, even if it is overkill.

Plenty of folks from Corpus/ Rockport, and even Victoria will be headed north, unless the storm turns today.

i don't know why anyone would prioritize real life before a :Censor:ing football game?????????????????????

If you do not live by a river or within the area affected by a storm surge, you will not be on the roof waving for a helicopter.

Ever heard of this thing called wind and rain? It's something special if you have never seen it. The rain comes down hard and makes everything slick and if it comes down long enough it starts to puddle up, called flooding. The wind is like a cool breeze except a lot harder. It blows the football around really hard and sometimes if it is hard enough you can go outside and fly a really big kite.

If there was wind and rain, but it didn't have a scary name attached to it, would you still play a football game? (We do every fall across the country).

Lightning should cancel a game, beyond that, play ball. No need to delay until you know what is happening.

If someone told me that there was going to be non-stop pouring rain and 65+ mph winds I would probably go ahead and cancel it.

Are you serious? The evacuation route for the Corpus Christi area is I-37 to San Antonio and then I-35 North from there. Usually the Frank Erwin Center and Gregory Gym on the UT campus are set up as shelters.

BTW, nobody is talking about evacuating Austin. Surely you're not that dumb. We're talking about keeping the streets and highways as clear as possible for coastal residents who are evacuating and the best way to do that, is to not have 100,000 people watching a football game less than a quarter of a mile from one of the state's primary coastal evacuation routes. This is called common sense.
