College GameDay analysts weigh in on Florida-LSU cancellation
On ESPN’s College GameDay, analysts weighed in on the cancellation of the LSU-Florida game.
No makeup date has been scheduled yet, which drew the ire of everyone on the set.
“The idea that you won’t play it is preposterous,” Rece Davis said. “SEC, get this done!”
“The SEC’s national reputation is at stake,” Lee Corso added. “There’s no excuse for not playing this game sometime.”
Paul Finebaum highlighted a date that could work for a rescheduled game between the two schools.
“Sadly, not much has happened,” Finebaum said. “I think what has to happen is the conference has to get together and say the only option is Nov. 19.”
Florida plays Presbyterian on Nov. 19 and LSU has a game scheduled against South Alabama. Both of those tuneup games could be cancelled to allow LSU and Florida to play an important conference game.
Overall, analyst Desmond Howard said he believes the game will get played at some point this year.
“When things calm down, they’ll figure it out,” he said.
