    Without reading the article....I bet they’re citing the weather.

    ****just read....they did not mention weather as a factor.

    So now both teams have an extra bye week. No big deal. It could hurt Miami the most as their players will have extra time now to steal.

    Now all 3 big Florida teams play each other. This is good for college football.

    What will be funny is if the hurricane(not the team) still messes this game up.

    It sounds like it's more about raising the profile of the game and getting more TV attention, but you might be right about weather being a bonus factor. If there is a hurricane that week, they can move it back to the original date and not have to cancel or try to reschedule later in the season.

    Better be a night game. A stadium in Orlando on August 24 sounds horrible for daytime.

    Wasn’t GT/Clemson the start of college football this year? I was looking forward to beating their ass in prime time

    Watching Florida kick Miami's ass will be worth it

    Nah, just the kickoff of the ACC network. The article linked above mentions another game being played in “Week 0.”

    It'll be great if Miami loses that one and then loses their 2nd game @UNC. They'll be ready to burn Diaz in effigy.

    I honestly think chances of that happening are about 90%

    I don't like Miami, but öööö the sec. I hope Miami beats Florida and goes on to lose all of their ACC games and Florida goes on to destroy the SEC East

    Me too, but realistically Miami ööööting the bed to open the season against the SEC seems inevitable.

    100% chance. also, diaz doesn't last two years. in 2021, they dig up the remains of schellenberger as a replacement. and not surprisingly, he'll have less stench on him than the Miami program has on it.

    Miami beats UF, we beat Miami, UF wins SEC, GT is SEC Champions, uga cancels season after it’s discovered that Kirby has been running a prostitution ring of current players to recruit prospects.

    These are my rooting interests.

    One way or another, a hurricane is going to screw up this game.
