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

Why be a stuck up sourpuss, I would love to see Houston to be the first football team to play liberty in FBS H&H mybe even invite them into the AAC

You honestly would like to see Liberty in the AAC?

Cheers!

If they are paying I Hope Charlotte's playing. Just show me the money! All I care about is sports. If there was every anything called a safe space it ought to be sports.

I would love to play Liberty. Like I said earlier, it is better playing them than Directional U.

I read Army has three open dates in November 2018 and another on December 1st. In 2019 four open dates including three between November & December?

Is that true?

Cheers!

They're expanding their stadium. At their news conference, they said about 35,000.

RE: Who is the first school to schedule a game at Liberty?
My Prediction BYU will be first doing what they did for UMASS. Followed by the other UMASS and NMSU. Army will sign to get away from playing to FCS teams. They should beat Liberty to start. G5's I think UAB and Coastal would make great sense since both programs are essentially at the same location. All the established teams should be favored but provide Liberty with a chance to win. They will try to get Hawaii to get extra home game, even if it would be FCS. Teams I would be targeting the following for H/H

CUSA Teams to target
Marshall
FIU
FAU
WKU

MAC
Kent
Bowling Green
Ohio
Emu
wmu
cmu
Ball St
Akron

SB
ULM
GSU
Ga So
Tx St

MWC
UNLV
San Jose

If Liberty does a proper business plan, they can make it work. If they truly have the money, the can offer poorer SB, MAC and CUSA teams decent money to play them at Lynchburg. We will soon see if it can be down. I hope Liberty can make it work. Always like routing for the underdog.

One thing, would it not make sense for Army getting rid of a 2nd FCS game? With Liberty being FBS, that helps getting to bowl eligibility.
