Scheduling agreements made for multiple FBS games
Quote:Liberty has come to terms on scheduling agreements for multiple FBS games in both 2018 and 2019, according to sources. No word yet on who those scheduled games are with. Liberty plans to release the entire 2018 schedule at once as opposed to releasing individual games as they are signed ...... A scheduling alliance with another G5 conference moving forward could also be a possibility.

Well that's a step in a positive direction. Can't wait to find out who we're playing.

This is good news! I really hate Liberty's policy on this though. I want to get excited about future opponents but Liberty doesn't give us time to get excited.

I think Liberty is smart in handling the initial schedules. I think it looks more impressive to have the 2018 and 19 schedules already done. Hopefully for you all, there will also be numerous 2020+ games showing deals. I think it is important for Liberty lock down meeting the FBS minimum home games for the first five years. Showing they will be a like BYU and a stable independent.

Unfortunately I agree with your point and wish like GTandMTS that as teams were signed announcements would follow. It would generate more BBS interest.

RE: Scheduling agreements made for multiple FBS games
Obviously certain contracts were easy to sign with other indies. My guess is that we aren't revealing the contracts because there remains some fluidity to them allowing for both parties to slide them into a suitable slot based on booking other FBS games.

I suspect that word will leak out once other contracts start falling into place on multiple-year deals.

Someone needs to explain to me why any conference would get into a scheduling agreement with us. I just am not sure of the benefit. I guess there are some teams that have a hard time scheduling home games, but why would they rely on the conference office to help. I'd think coming straight to Liberty and cutting the middle man eould be a better way. I also can't see anyone other than Sun Belt and the bottom C-USA teams needing this type of agreement.

I believe there are very few G5's who would not make a deal with you. The problem is their fitting LU in when you would prefer. The month of Sept shouldn't be difficult at all and you can do your payday games with the SEC and ACC (ACC wants to start moving some OOC games to later in the season) in the month of Nov., so it will be Oct. dates that are tough to schedule and this is where UMass and NMSU should be.

I agree. I think a lot of the general apathy that most fans have towards Liberty's football program is not as big a concern to the athletic directors who will want a home game. They'll assume that fans will come to the games regardless, want a hopefully easy win against a fresh move-up, and potentially get paid for an away game.
