For the Sunday A.M. readers

I'm deviating (sort of) from the normal CFB talk here.

Thanks to the expert coverage by fellow CFB blogger Brendan Loy, who knows a thing or two about weather issues, I've become convinced that hurricane Katrina is a monster likely to alter the early college football landscape as well as the lives of many, many, many Americans.

The college football angle is this: several D-1 programs are in the storm's projected path.  Particuarly worrisome is Tulane, a school that has indefinitely shut down, as well as Southern Miss, LSU and Louisiana-Lafayette.  Tulane is scheduled to play at Southern Miss's campus in Hattiesberg, MS on Sunday.  That game may be rendered meaningless or outright canceled depending on how grumpy Katrina gets.

In the meantime, please continue to watch the Weather Channel, (paying particular attention to reporter Jim Cantore), read Brendan's blog, and whatever he links to.  We'll also provide updates.

Be sure and check out my earlier updates to get an idea of my frame of mind on this, as well as an opportunity to take a look at some pictures I took of Ivan's aftermath on Pensacola, FL in December of last year.

The hurricane briefly swamped Miami and south Florida earlier this week, as a "mere" Category I storm.  That said, it is being reported that the storm was still powerful enough to do some of the most expensive damage ever caused by a Category I hurricane.  Miami Hurricanes practice was cancelled Friday but resumed on Saturday with little fanfare.

The disruption could be much greater for Miami's peers in Louisiana and Mississippi.
