LSU and Florida made rescheduling their game cancelled by Hurricane Matthew way harder than it had to be. Not sure why they didn't take the stance that South Carolina and Georgia took and played the game on Sunday instead of Saturday. While not ideal, Florida would have kept their home game instead of now having to travel to Baton Rouge. Essentially these teams decided to play chicken on rescheduling until really, the bad press forced them to resolve and the SEC being powerless to handle it themselves which of course they will now get around to fixing and giving the commissioner the power to handle such matter. I guess you could say the big winners were Presbyterian and South Alabama who will get their payouts for being non-conference sacrifices without the on field onslaught.
