I run into LU Alumni or folks that know about LU all the time. I don't even live on the east coast anymore so it is surprising. Right now I'm in Baghdad and I still run into folks that know about LU. I think our fan base is larger than you think. We aren't getting 16k+ attendance in FB because we have a tiny fan base. Some FBS schools don't even have that.

My wife runs into alumni all the time in Columbia SC.

Are they sports fans though? Do they support the school in any way, i.e. - Flames Club, LU clothing, attendance at games, watching games?

The most recent couple we met was decked out in LU memorabilia and said they planned on going to homecoming. So overall, from what I've seen, I would say yes. I'm going to try to go to the baseball tourney since it's like 15 minutes from my house.

Does watching LU games on ESPN3 or the BSC Network have any tangible benefits for LU?

I try and get friends, family, LU Online students to watch LU and join the Flames Club.

I know family will pay much more attention when I return from Korea and my daughter and son are attending LU. I hope my son walks on to the LU football team and my daughter will be on the archery team.

Yes it has benefits. Not being invisible to the world is the number one benefit. And it's like a 2-3 hour university promotional video on game day.

I agree with this for the most part. The only thing is that if nobody watches then what is the real benefit? That's why it is important to watch and get others to watch as well so that the networks keep moving Liberty up to better programming.
