The Butt Hurt is Real
After the news broke we are going FBS I stayed quite just to see how folks would react on CSN, AGS and Coastalfans. It's clear to me based off of posters opinions is going FBS had nothing to do with sports and more to do with us being a large Christian University. The AGS thread got so bad it was deleted, the CSN was bad enough it was locked. The butt hurt is real. I'm happy that some posters on the forums I mentioned were supportive of us. Its comforting to know they exist.

In the end I'm happy the NCAA gave us the waiver it was the right thing to do. Let me put it into perspective on why it was. Last time a Private school went FBS was 1978 and that was really because D1 split into FCS and FBS and the privates landed on the FBS side. No private has ever gone from FCS to FBS till we got the waiver this week. So folks can be upset or whatever but there clearly was no path for LU to go FBS.

As has been stated on this forum for years, LU's only option was to be indy. Most of us believed it was only going to be accomplished via the courts with litigation. Everyone was surprised with the speed and ease of the waiver.

I'll admit here I was wrong in my assertion that JFJr had overstepped his political involvement as to deny LU FBS membership. Seems like the reality of LU being FBS ready, and LU's strong case for meeting the membership criteria, overrode admin rhetoric and political involvement. I am pleased LU received the FB waiver. I look forward to watching the FB team play quality P5 and G5 teams on the road and at Williams Stadium. I'll let others decry and defend LU stances and political/social/moral positions as I have defended them in the past. I share the excitement of LU becoming FBS as what happens between lines and on the field is my interest.

Jesus said that we would be persecuted.

I looked for a thread on AGS, I didn't realize that it got deleted.

Yeah dude when the news broke the thread on AGS got started. The AGS one was actually the worse thread I've read yet. Maybe it was caused by a combination of hate for LU and us moving to a higher football classification others thought they deserved more.

RE: The Butt Hurt is Real
I LOVE to see all the whining and complaining. I am eating it up like candy on Halloween. If it wasn't such great news for Liberty then I'd probably be avoiding the negativity but they can't bring me down. I wish I wasn't traveling for the weekend and was able to respond more but alas, life and Liberty are not cooperating with my schedule.

RE: The Butt Hurt is Real
Regarding Butt Hurt, it has been amazing some much buzz has been generated on the board regarding LU's waiver and entry into FBS. I thought it would have subsided after 4 days but it is still very strong. One still has to wade through the usual low brow comments but it is very encouraging the number of rational and logical posters who are okay and supportive of the decision.
