Hurricane Isaac proving to be nemisis for travel plans
Louisiana College Football head coach Dennis Dunn likes to stress the importance of "focus" when his team is met with adversity.
And, while it may prove to be a small issue in the long run of the season, right now, the impact of Hurricane Isaac is being felt on the Wildcats as they prepare for their season opener this Saturday, Sept. 1, at Babson Park, Fla., against NAIA school Webber International witch kickoff set for 11 a.m. Central Time.
That Cats were scheduled to leave Thursday at 8 a.m., but Dunn told his players Tuesday that the bus will likely not hit the road until later that evening after the storm has had time to pass through the area and the rest of the Gulf Coast.
LC squeezed two full practices into their schedule Tuesday not knowing what exactly their travel plans might be. They will have one more full practice Wednesday morning.
The Wildcats are coming off a successful scrimmage last week against Blinn College in which the Cats scored a 28-12 victory. The Wildcats have been anxious to get the 2012 season underway after an off-season of workouts and more recently, two weeks of fall camp.
LC is looking to improve on four straight seasons of 7-3 records and will return its largest returning senior class since the return of football in 2000.
