Evacuees Raid Tallahassee...

...looking for hotel rooms during a doubleheader weekend [AP Wire].

Florida State vice president Lee Hinkle said Wednesday that the school
believed there was no shortage of rooms. She said the school spoke with the Tallahassee Area Convention and Visitors Bureau and called all types of hotels, "and all had some room availability.''


"It is not Florida State's intent to displace any refugees who are in town for hurricane relief,'' Hinkle said, noting the school has been in touch with state agencies and Gov. Jeb Bush's office.


Just a recommendation. Don't stay at the Prince Murat hotel. By no means. Believe me, I've been there and I....well I've been there.

Citron said the pressure on rooms reminded him of the 2000 presidential recount when Tallahassee was swamped with journalists from the around the world and hundreds of lawyers as well.


"If we can manage that, I'm confident we can get through this weekend as well,'' he said.


As a reporter on the scene for that event, I'm wondering how they would describe manage? If manage means "one big clusterfuck" than yes, they managed the situation quite well.

Meanwhile with the option of USC vs. the field, Bill Curry takes the field [ESPN.com] Bold move there Bill...bold move.
