Hoping your success (and it will come) inspires our leaders. BEST OF LUCK

bcp_jmu, I've been reading the posts on the JMU board and it has been very active talking about LU. Most have been supportive and rational in their response, and a few, as always had just as soon as smack their little sister as give LU any credit.

Hahah..agreed...seems a number of us Dukes don't remember the Ron Carrier years... playoffs are cool but it's delusional to think it will ever rival big boy football

Maybe there is a chance that we follow your lead (learn from challenges you will face too) and leave CAA football ...we can stay for rest of sports

Hard to say - but we are still playing in 2019 so get ready 03-wink

Hijack over

"@ FAU . . . . . Building a bridge to FL recruiting

Fiu instead of FAU because of it being in Miami."

Boca Raton being right in the middle of Palm Beach and broward county is a better recruiting area for liberty than Miami. Liberty has 15% african american students which would make it easier for recruiting in african-american areas in Palm Beach and broward county. Miami with its large hispanic population is not necessarily the easiest recruiting for a school like liberty with very few hispanic students.

Realistic Dream Schedule:

ODU . . . . . In state Rival
Army . . . . . Independent w/ National Following
@ BYU . . . . . One of three schools we strive to excel like (Too early for ND)
@ Virginia . . . . . Just up the road
New Mexico St. . . . . . Fellow Indy in need of scheduling
@ UMass . . . . . See note above
@ Duke . . . . . Easy drive for our fan base
Coastal Carolina . . . . . Old rival and a game we could likely schedule
@ San Jose St. . . . . . West coast exposure
@ Western Kentucky . . . . . Just because it's my home state
@ FAU . . . . . Building a bridge to FL recruiting
UTSA . . . . . Texas exposure

I know there should (and will be) an FCS team on the schedule, but I don't want there to be. I say we leave FCS behind and schedule winnable FBS schools.

Was not really think about having Liberty at UMass for Nov 24th but at Liberty. Don't like the idea of having only 5 home games, but it's hard to get excited about an FCS game in late November. Don't see a good argument of pushing for Liberty verses a local FCS team.

If Liberty still needed a 5th FBS home game would be neutral on the idea of us getting a big pay check and only have 5 home games. The caveat is that that money would go towards our stadiums improvements.

Did post my thoughts on UMassHoops.com recently, but no comments.

Footnote as you may realize that Ian McCaw was the AD @ UMass for 2002-3

Would love a game with FAU. I lived in Boca from 1980 to 1992 about a mile from the campus. Having retired to Florida in March, I'm about 4 hours away driving. A huge thumbs up for FAU.

In both scenarios it sounds like a win-win for both programs, even with the payment, if needed to UMass.

New Times. We could be holding out on the Nov 24, 2018 game, which could be played at Fenway Park, like this year.

A poster, NJUMASS08 posted this on our other board:

Fenway would be the draw for my crew to make the trip.
