I thinking we'll see something soon, after all they need to start it in 8 months?

Just curious, why do you say that it needs to be started in 8 months? Have you signed a deal to have a big time team come to Lynchburg? I was guessing that it will take until about the 2021 season before you have someone coming that will bust your capacity into a whole new atmosphere.

Along the same line, do we still have a deal to play you guys in 2019? If so, I suspect that will be one of your better crowds for that particular season even with our being FCS. Once you start getting Appy, ECU, and a few P5's to show up in Lynchburg, you'll need an expansion for sure, but I don't see having a "GA State type" come to town requiring more than your current capacity.

It's an exciting time for you guys and I'm sure immediately following your two transition seasons, you'll get a nice bump, but I'm guessing that will settle down after some of the newness of being fully FBS wears off. Then you'll get another nice bump once some good programs play in Williams Stadium.

Impressive! But I thought LU was just online?

On another note, I think I remember hearing the plan for the football stadium is to expand a little soon, and then when demand requires to expand to 35,000. I could be, and probably am, mis-remembering though.

I believe the goal is to be at 25,000ish, give or take 1K, by the 2019 season. That will include a tower added to the student side with luxury suites, box seating, and the rest bleachers.

I am anticipating LU getting a couple decent early home games the first few years..... just a gut feeling.

Whoo! That is quite a jump. It's gonna take a decade of winning to 35,000 to attend. However, I am ever hopeful. With that many seats tickets should be pretty cheap.
