Since I last checked "they" are calling for a hi of 66 and windy (according to weather.com).
What were the odds of THAT?
EDIT: I'll just paste my post below, and the Mods can delete mine.
So, according to weather.com, we're looking at a new wrinkle in the gameday forecast:
Not sure who this would favor; obviously, we wouldn't be able to throw the ball down field as effectively, but they also wouldn't be able to exploit our corners as easily.
And now we go back to Ollie Williams for an update on how scared we should be of the Huskies:
Maybe if it is windy enough we will just keep going for it on 4th down. One can hope, right?
UConn runs the ball a lot, and our QB's only throw short passes anyway.
Anything to keep our DB's from having to face the dreaded "defend in space".
That isn't wind. That is Denard running by you.
Meteorologists are a joke. Four days ago it was supposed to be sunny and 80 at game time, three days ago it was supposed to be sunny and 75, two days ago partly cloudy and 72, yesterday it was 69, and today it's windy and 66 with rain today, Thursday, and Friday.
What are the odds that by Saturday they're predicting rain for the game?
Forecasting the weather is as useless as pre-season polls.
That is one of the few professions where someone can be wrong almost 50% of the time and still have a job... The other job that I can think of that is similar is working for the freep
(insert any pre-season sports show here) color commentator predicting how many wins or losses we will have this year.....
At this rate they will be predicting snow once Saturday morning rolls around.
would like a word with you.
for football. Not sure about that wind, but I'll take 66 degrees anyday.
for new kickers & punters, but may also help our DBs on long balls.
well maybe depending on what qb they start and which formation they use for denard and if he can play corner, they will most likely mic the band which will drown out the RAWK music, causing discussion as to our w-l prediction for the year leading to RR's job status and the questionable relevance of random MSU fan, thus will most likely throw off uconns entire gameplan in preparation for the wind factor.
Coming from Tampa, I might be bringing my winter jacket.
You live in Tampa... Winter Jacket = Long Sleeve T-shirt.
Yep, +1 to you.
These forecasts are getting better by the hour. Now we're starting to talk a little football weather.
