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 hope it's USA so Tom loses his sh*t...LOL

We have no away openings until 2023.07-coffee3

Don't worry! I'm sure Liberty can buyout one of those schools so that we can play. I can't wait!

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

Liberty to evangelicals is setting itself to be what BYU is to Mormons. Think- Notre Dame. Liberty is going to be a very powerful school. I am blown away by the number of people I know whose children are attending Liberty.

I don't know why you are laughing. Baylor, the largest Baptist university, is the type of school that may schedule Liberty and visit. Baylor is not known for their challenging out of conference scheduling.

UCF had Texas open their stadium. I would not be surprised if a school like North Carolina opens Liberty's stadium.

I'm laughing at Baylor playing at Liberty. Sure Baylor will schedule home games. You are half right. Baylor is known to schedule cupcakes at home, how often do they play at the cupcake's stadium? I didn't know you liked Liberty?

Cheers!

Actually Baylor has played at 2 Sun Belt schools in the last 10 years. They even went to Monroe. Unfortunately for LU, Baylor is booked up through 2023. Big XII teams are somewhat willing (outside of Texas, WV and Oklahoma) but they only have 3 games OOC to work with.

There's a few elements here

1) Is there an opening
2) Is the school willing to travel to a G5
3) Is the school willing to travel to Liberty
4) Does the school WANT to travel to Liberty, even over just about every other G5, who would also enjoy playing them at home

Could LU replace a FCS team scheduled to play a FBS team, if LU made a payment to the FCS team greater than the FBS guarantee, and the FBS team agreed to the LU replacement?

Yea, that could happen, but you'd be playing AT another team in that case. Remember that (with one exception) FBS teams do not ever schedule games at FCS teams.

Of course the FBS team would have to agree to that.

Seriously, LU is planning on PAYING to play AWAY games????

Okay.

Maybe I don't understand your question.

Yes, it was a confusing question and I was distracted when writing it. Let me re-state using an example. On 8/31/2019 Gardnew Webb plays Charlotte. Could GW be paid by LU to terminate their contract and take their place vs. Charlotte, with of course Charlotte agreeing? It would be a road game for LU but a FBS game.

Sure, they could, and Charlotte would have to agree to it. But seriously, if you guys want LU to be seen as a 'real FBS team' paying to play Charlotte on the road is going to raise more than a few eyebrows.

But what's in it for Charlotte? They already have a game scheduled, with an easy win program, that will count towards bowl eligibility. Why switch it to LU? What's in it for them?
