RE: Time to expand Williams Stadium
I'm hardly questioning LU's desire to be FBS. If anything it's so desirous it's unseemly. We all know LU has financial resources ODU can never approach, and thank God we don't have your leadership. But that doesn't really speak to desire on the part of ODU, nor its leadership. if LU were a state school you'd be hampered by the Cox bill just like us.
Be grateful Jr is willing to spend the big bucks. It still seems a little antithetical to a Christian university. You know, money being the root of all evil and all.

This is just stupid. Liberty isn't spending more money than everyone else in football. Liberty spent just over $10 million on football in the 2015-2016 school year while JMU spent $9 million, ODU $9.6 million, VT $31.2 million, and Virginia $20.3 million. Go the Department of Education and check out their Equity in Athletics for their numbers. Liberty won't be paying Saban-level money for a coach if they are in the G5. So, what are these big bucks that Liberty is paying? It's just a big scary myth that everyone worries about to throw shade at Liberty.

And for the record, Liberty is a non-profit school. They get a lot of revenue through their online programs which they use to reinvest into the school. Yes, sports is a percentage of that (not even a large percentage) but the school is in the process of building many academic buildings, adding programs, and more because they are choosing not to just sit on the money. Wouldn't it be a bigger deal if they weren't spending the money they were bringing in? Isn't it their job as a Christian school to be good stewards of their money? But I guess that doesn't fit in with the narrative.

You won't find ODU or many other G5's paying another G5 1 million dollars to play at their school, like LU is doing. To me that's throwing around money. Not sure how many other million dollar pay days LU is obligated for.
Why specify Christian? Don't all schools have the same obligation?

Liberty is paying ODU $1 million because they received that and more for a money game at Auburn. Liberty moved up to FBS on very short notice and had to get a schedule ASAP. Most FBS schools were nearly completed with their 2018 schedules so they would have had to rearrange things to fit in LU, a very big inconvenience. Liberty helped persuade ODU with a paycheck, the only one that large to my knowledge.

And why specify Christian? Because YOU brought it up! Now you can stop hijacking the thread and get it back on topic.

Sounds like good pre game hype and smack talk before a game to kick start the program in FBS.
