RE: FBS talk
Maybe we're offering some conference $25,000,000 per team to let us join them. 03-lmfao

I understand if we did a lump buy in for a reasonable amount but not anything crazy.

Ok, I'll bite. What would be a reasonable amount?

RE: FBS talk
Here's an example of how the sports reporting buzz spreads. Channel 12 ABC in NC says 'Liberty gets chance for signature win as FBS rumors pick up". My guess is a sports reporter read the wire and saw the JFJr. FBS mention. No new news, just another re-report. Here's the link: http://www.wcti12.com/sports/liberty-get...p/92775992

RE: FBS talk
It may be coincidence but I was thinking earlier that maybe the Big South Conference and A-Sun football merger could be related with Liberty's potentially pending FBS move. Losing Liberty (or any other school) would lose the Big South's autobid to the playoffs so now may have been the time to act on the merger which would take effect sooner than a call-up would.

I would think paying the FBS conferences exit fee amount as the entry fee would be reasonable.

Entrance and Exit Fees for SBC and C-USA
Curtis brings up a good point on the exit fees SBC and C-USA teams will be required to pay. I did a quick Google search and here's the entrance and exit costs.

Exit Fees:
For C-USA, Chuck Landon, sports reporter for the Herald-Dispatch newspaper in Huntington, WVA reports on August 2, 2016 that those teams have to pay 2 years of revenue with a 14 month minimum notice. The precise article explained the various revenue streams that total the 2 years. At present C-USA departing teams will be required to pay $5.67 million dollars to the league. Landon's article is worth reading. Here's the link: http://www.herald-dispatch.com/sports/ma...7762a.html

The SBC exit fee is $2.5 million if less than 12-15 months and $2 million is more than 15 months. The SBC website is the source: http://sunbeltsports.org/news/2015/5/19/...aspx?path=

With these being the exit fees, if openings occur in the SBC and C-USA, what will LU, and others, pay in entrance fees?

Entrance Fees:
A SB Nation report of May 19 2015, at http://www.underdogdynasty.com/2015/9/10...ation-for, said Coastal paid $2 million in entrance fees and that NMSU offered $4.4 million package with $2.4 being an offer to help offset travel cost for visiting teams in an attempt to sweeten the pot for membership. It must not have been sweet enough.

In April 2013 WKU paid a $2 million dollar entrance for the C-USA.

RE: FBS talk
I thought Liberty made an offer to the Sun Belt to pay each member to "buy" their way into the conference and that was very negatively received. The Sun Belt schools thought that we were flaunting our money and cemented the perception that we'd buy our way to championships and we were very different from the rest of the conference at our cores.

LU may have made that offer. The reply was simply a statement of financial details move up and moving on teams would likely incur.

RE: FBS talk
I remember Jr saying they had made an offer that was very generous. I believe it was in the range of 8 million. Don't quite me in that, but that number comes to mind. If the right opportunity came along I could see Liberty offering 20 million.
