So what do football players do when they would otherwise be playing a game? They take to social media just like the rest of us to complain about the circumstances. LSU-Florida got cancelled, and the players involved certainly had quite a bit of displeasure about it.

U can call it what you want but I'm here to tell you I'm not scared to play against anybody lol— Quincy Wilson (@dc_wilson954) October 8, 2016
There was no way to see this coming earlier in the week, but the weather ended up being absolutely perfect in Gainesville. We’re glad Hurricane Matthew steered a little bit wider out into the Atlantic Ocean and didn’t have quite the impact it was expected to. But the weather certainly makes you wonder what could have been.
Put it on ABC and look at what Notre Dame and NC State are playing thru...then realize this is what Gainesville looks like pic.twitter.com/l3XhlXQ5Po— Aslan Hodges (@AslanHodges) October 8, 2016
Especially when you lump in the fact that Florida State and Miami are carrying on with their game in South Florida.
On the flip side, things in Raleigh are about what we anticipated in Gainesville.
Sometimes things work out in a weird ways and massive hurricanes end up not going where you expected them to go.
