Fan Day Success While Eyes Watch The Tropics

August 27, 2012 · By · Filed Under Football 

The coaches and players set up in the Mitchell Center for the annual South Alabama Fan Day. The players were set up at tables that lined the edge of the Mitchell Center floor with the USA Bookstore, Ticket Office and USA National Alumni Association in the center. The bookstore had a limited setup with tumblers, Nike game jersey’s, hats, seat cushions, autograph footballs and a new design t-shirt.

The lines were long as fans lined up to get autographs of the Jaguar’s student-athletes. But the impending storm in the tropics has everyone wondering if the Thursday night game is going to go on as scheduled or if it will need to be rescheduled.

The weekend forecasts kept inching the projected path further west with each update going from Panama City to Mobile itself then to the Biloxi area and now it is projected for New Orleans. However, there is a cone where they predict it to make landfall within. As of the 6am CDT update, Mobile is not currently within that cone, but Mobile does not need to be in the cone to drastically affected. The strongest winds and storm surge are on the eastern side of the eye of a hurricane.

Currently classes are going to meet as normal on Monday and a decision will be made by noon as to further class schedules this week. Any decision on the South Alabama versus Texas-San Antonio game will probably be made by 5pm on Monday. The current options look to be rescheduling the game for a Saturday evening or Sunday evening game. This depends on when UTSA would be able to fly into Mobile for the game.

As soon as any official decision is made, Thunderjags will post it online on the website, twitter and facebook.
