Of all the reasons the Miami Hurricanes would have to cancel practice, this seems most appropriate.
Tropical Storm Isaac is rapidly approaching South Florida, and UM had to practice inside 35 miles north to the Miami Dolphins’ indoor facility. The team will not practice on Sunday either because of the storm, which is already causing problems for other Florida programs.
The storm is expected to hit Florida with rain and heavy winds Sunday and Monday. Practice for UM is scheduled to resume again on Tuesday, just four days before the Hurricanes open the season against Boston College.
As of now, there shouldn’t be much practice time missed for the ‘Canes, but coaches want to squeeze every last hour of practice out of their players that they can. I bet Al Golden isn’t too pleased.
