There really needs to be a new division for schools like this. No business playing FBS.

Earlier there were mentions of Liberty being a rich AD. Can anyone shed some light on that claim?

Being a private school, it's going to be difficult to find an article on their athletic finances. However, I've been driving by Lynchburg from Richmond to Blacksburg for 30 years and for the last 15 Liberty had always had cranes up building something new every time we've passed by there. I did read an article a while back that Gill asked for a second indoor football practice facility and they built one no questions asked. They seem to have all the money they need to compete. We'll find out if they have enough money when we see who Liberty has coming to play football in Lynchburg.

I didn't even know they were a non-profit until recently. Apparently they are, and even have a billion dollar endowment. How that is possible, I don't know.
Cheers!

I hope it is either South Alabama, Minnesota, or Coastal Carolina if they are FBS schools. That would be awesome! I would also be pumped for Marshall and pretty much any Sun Belt school as the first to schedule Liberty.

Realistically, I expect the poorer schools like Louisiana Monroe and Eastern Michigan to accept a payday. Old Dominion wants another Virginia school in CUSA so maybe they will want to schedule Liberty as the next best thing.

I want our first game to be BYU, Army, Navy, ODU, or Notre Dame. I expect of that list maybe Army or ODU may be feasable.

I have no doubt ODU will be willing to schedule a H&H but our first opening isn't until 2021 I think.
