Exactly. Liberty isn't another BYU or Baylor. Liberty is another Grand Canyon University. They just beat Grand Canyon in the race to be first to extend their online-education branding to include an FBS football team.

Think what you want about Liberty but they are a regionally accredited university which is the same as any other major university in the country. They are considered "not for profit" and they do have a substantial on campus presence. They are NOT Grand Canyon University.

nah.....none of those can afford to make a move w/o SOME revenue and regional opponent.

NCAA just basically gave Liberty a waiver because they can afford to lose millions/year.

GCU also has a physical campus with students in attendance. Look 'em up. And every online college that feasts on student loan money has regional accreditation, because that is a prerequisite for those student loans.

No, there's a dozen or more other accreditations that can get you eligible for Federal aid. Most for-profits are not regionally accredited.

much more likely that Witchita will replace UConn in the AAC.

NDSU does not have unlimited pockets. They are landlocked until a conference invites them.

RE: Liberty to FBS
Just because Liberty has a strong online program, doesn't mean it's a sub-par university. And we should especially avoid negative comments because it is a university that teaches religious-based values/traditions. When recruiting, I think they might be able to draw from the large U.S. Evangelical community -- which includes many fine athletes. And those fans may be very loyal to the team. Best of luck to them! Maybe they will defeat ND and BYU some day!!
