RE: General Expansion Talk
I do think it's becoming abundantly clear that Liberty has no chance of being added to a conference. You think the GLTB community has come out against BYU, can you imagine thev push back against Liberty?

Honestly I don't think it would be bad because

1. Y'all being considered to join the Sun Belt wouldn't make headlines, even if y'all did join the only people that would notice are G5 fans, Liberty fans, and butthurt FCS fans that get upset because no good program truly wants to be FCS. SJW only go against things that will get them noticed.

2. Most of the country that has actually heard of y'all just knows you as an online college if at all. Honestly before these boards the only reason I knew of y'all was because of your TV ads for online classes. Y'all are not as famous or infamous as you like to believe. Probably for the best since y'all seem to think that everyone is against y'all.

FWIW y'all would be a great add.

Bobcat, I think it depends on the circles you run in. I've traveled all over the country and anytime I wear a Liberty hat or sweatshirt I typically get stopped and the person has some connection to Liberty. Two years ago I was fly fishing in Yellowstone with my brother. I passed a guy and he saw my visor and struck up a conversation. I'm not saying we're a household name across the country, but I'm sure you've seen the comments made towards Liberty on the Sunbelt board.

One other thing, the Sunbelt was vetting EKU last year instead of us. If you know anything about EKU, you know they have no business even considering going FBS. If given the opportunity the SB will select them over us.

RE: General Expansion Talk
You have to remember though. Most us SBC fans are fans of teams that were FCS so they were at least familiar with y'all. Idk why they dislike y'all so much, but I also don't know why it bothers y'all either. No one on these boards has any power over who gets selected.

Also you're right about EKU. They're not in the SBC for a reason.

Ga State has to be on the short list if Conf USA needs to fill a spot or two. They've shown in the past that market size is a key factor for them. Ga State would be number one on that list.

I saw the Turner Field purchase. That's huge, but you've got to get fan support and win. I know you went to a bowl game last year, but you can't go backwards this year. Having a smaller, more intimate stadium should help draw some fans. I have no ill will towards Ga State. Panama, you still owe me an adult beverage for you guys losing to us last year.
