Hurricane Rita watch?


The hurricane, swirling out in the balmy Gulf of Mexico waters, is now reported to be a Category Five hurricane.  Ouch.

It appears the storm is headed towards the central to east coast of southern Texas,with future destination unknown but know predicted to settle back southwest, swirling in the state's middle for 1-3 days before sweeping upward through the eastern portion of the state.  Projected landfall is early Saturday.  Yeah, Saturday.

Luckily for Texas, most of the coastal areas aren't underwater, as New Orleans was.  BUT... this thing could do some unbelievable damage to places like Galveston (some of the murkiest but warmest waters I've ever been in).

Inclement weather is certain to threaten the postponement of several CFB games in the area (think Southern Miss @ Houston, Navy @ Rice, Texas State @Texas A&M, Tulane @ SMU).  UPDATE:  Per ESPN story, Houston game postponed until Nov. 12 or Nov. 13, Rice game postponed until Oct. 22, Texas A&M still deciding what to do.  Update #2-Per Rivals.com story, Texas A&M game moved to Thursday.  Update #3-Per FanBlogs story, LSU/Tennessee game moved to Monday on ESPN2, and GameDay moved to the VaTech game.

As an aside, how bad are things for Tulane and Southern Miss that having already lost games to Hurricane Katrina, they may also have another game, road games no less, postponed due to Hurricane Rita?

Anyway, that's the latest.  As usual, USC/ND blogger BrendanLoy is on top of all things hurricane, as well as  The Weather Channel.  University athletic department websites, pre-Katrina, were of little help before a storm in explaining what they'd be doing.  So I'd suggest just emailing one of their administrators if you're curious what their preparations are, or checking the ESPN.com CFB headlines to see if they're reporting on anything.

Post-storm, I found that FanBlogs and PalmReadings (by BCS guru Jerry Palm!) were continuing to report on what had gone on in relation to CFB.

My great hometown of Houston will probably be completely evacuated by Thu night or Fri.

isn't Houston the fattest city in the U.S.?
