Mark Richt lost his last 3 games at South Carolina.
At 3:30 a.m. Sunday game 11 hours away there is no traffic on the roads in Columbia SC at all. I am looking at the cameras. 7 of the 12 state of South Carolina cameras are out :
There are 170 road closures all the way to Georgia with all lanes blocked due to flooding.
Columbia would be accessed from the North and I-85 NE expressway is moving slowly but steadily.
State of South Carolina road resources are very limited in number and they will awake this morning and head to the coast from their reports to assess what the 8 crews I count do there. That is one mighty small state of South Carolina road crew total.
If I were going I would take I-85 NE and come down. I would however not want to be driving back after dark as would be the case with limited gas due to no electricity for the pumps to operate nor on side streets trying to find one open nor dealing with the traffic Sunday night. There were 25 million hit by Hurricane Matthew. And they are all out there driving around and at some point next week trying to get home. In the meantime you have no rooms to sleep.
My firm belief is that this game is in contradiction to prudent decisions to play it there this afternoon impacting all the victims. That is all we are doing. And acting like a game is more important than them.
It’s like a 3rd world South Carolina this morning. If you have an emergency their resources have to be at the coast.
1-3 SEC team vs 1-2 SEC team.
