The Florida State Seminoles are scorching. With the ‘Noles soccer staff undefeated and leading ESPN’s Strength of Record ratings, it’s clear now isn’t the perfect time to face FSU. Wake Forest head coach Dave Clawson apparently agrees.
“You actually hope that the ACC will make the proper choice,” he mentioned on Tuesday. ”In the event that they don’t, we’ll. We’re not going to journey down there and put anybody in danger.
We’re monitoring the climate. Clearly this within the league’s palms and Florida State’s palms. You’ll hope they make the proper choice, but when we really feel there’s any hazard to our gamers, we’re not going to go.”
Clawson introduced up the chance of journey with the strategy of Hurricane Ian on the Florida peninsula. However Wake Forest isn’t taking part in USF (who has relocated), the Demon Deacons are scheduled to play FSU. In Tallahassee.
Present modeling predicts Ian will make landfall someplace between Tampa and Venice on Florida’s west coast. Tallahassee faces a 30-40% likelihood of tropical storm power winds, per NOAA’s most up-to-date predictions, and a 0% likelihood of hurricane power winds.
Leon County Colleges are open tomorrow, Wednesday, September twenty eighth. FSU and the ACC haven’t introduced any change to the sport time, and a location change appears not possible.
After Ian continues its path by means of Florida into the southeast, the remnants of the storm are at the moment poised to cross into western North Carolina in a single day Saturday.
“When this stuff occur, everyone seems to be a climate skilled — there’s a serious storm hitting Florida. It’s not simply the flight. It’s the resort — does it have electrical energy? Are they going to have the ability to feed us? You may’t go down there and never meals. If all these issues are checked, we really feel it’s secure, the ACC determines it’s secure and we decide it’s secure, there’ll be a sport.”
“If they are saying they really feel they will host the sport and it’s secure, then it’s in our palms to say if touring is secure.”
“We wish to play — we completely wish to play. If it’s secure and acceptable.”
Clawson discusses flying and journey through the storm (starting at 7:30 of above embedded video), which is comprehensible. However contemplating the placement of the storm and its path, that is about as unsafe as any late summer season afternoon flight in or out of Tallahassee. Clawson says “we are able to’t go down there and never have meals” in his press convention, which is patently ludicrous.
If Wake Forest needs to forfeit, they will forfeit. We will probably be consuming good heat meals right here in Tallahassee both method.
