ATHENS — When the clock strikes 7:30 p.m. on Thursday night, it will be 48 hours until Georgia’s game at South Carolina was scheduled to start. Emphasis on “scheduled.”
Hurricane Matthew is now a Category 4 storm, barreling down the southern East Coast. President Obama has declared a state of emergency for the state of South Carolina, and the state’s governor Nikki Haley pleaded at a press conference for people to “please take this storm seriously.”
But even with the Florida-LSU game being canceled earlier in the day, there was no resolution on Georgia-South Carolina.
“(We are) still in a holding pattern,” Georgia head coach Kirby Smart said on his radio show Thursday night. “Been a lot of conversations but nothing definitive.”
Speaking simultaneously on his radio show, South Carolina head coach Will Muschamp said they still planned on playing the game, they just didn’t know when.

Muschamp: “We are prepared for both situations. Right now, I’ve got a schedule for a Saturday and a Sunday game.”

Georgia officials have remained silent. So has the SEC office, which earlier in the afternoon announced the postponement of the Florida-LSU game, scheduled for Saturday in Gainesville.
Adding to the intrigue, Smart did not show up for the start of his scheduled radio show at 7 p.m. He showed up about 20 minutes late.
