RE: How long before Liberty becomes surpasses JMU and ODU?
Y'all are past JMU already imo. ODU is still ahead but I don't think it will take long to pass them either. Y'all being private will pull national fans as opposed to a regional school like ODU. I doubt y'all will ever be perceived with VT or even UVA. The only way that happens is if you get a P5 bid, I don't see that happening ask BYU. Y'all have potential but I think y'all will get a BYU feel and nothing wrong with that it's just a lot different than how UVA and VT are perceived. You can be a better team or program but people will still lump you as not a P5. It's just how college football works. Like ECU vs Kansas it's the conference that pulls the weight.

I think we might be getting a little ahead of ourselves.

How so AM? One could state that JMU with their FCS success has far exceeded LU prior to LU receiving indy status. With LU's indy announcement, one could also state that LU and JMU are near equal or that JMU still has the edge. Lastly, when LU announces it FB schedule and quality G5 and P5 teams come to LU, that will definately shift the lever towards LU. If LU gets blown out in home field loses by wide, disparate margins, JMU will have a case they are equal or have the edge. Either way, LU will or exceed JMU simply because of FCS vs. FBS.

Regarding ODU, with them being FBS for several years, they clearly have the advantage now. How that shifts and changes in the future will simply be determined by who winds on the field. With the positive mentions by admins at ODU towards scheduling LU in the past, that bodes very well for LU, and hopefully can create a lasting rivalry.

There just seems to be a lot of "when" and "if." I am excited too and see great potential. I am just pulling my reins a bit. I'm gonna see how things play out. I'm not trying to discredit anybody's opinion. I share them as well.

It's April spring practice has finished and we're 120+ days away from games that count. Content now is light to discuss as most LU fans are clinging to at least an announcement of upcoming FBS games and schedules.

RE: How long before Liberty becomes surpasses JMU and ODU?
I just had to update this thread from months ago. Contrary to a fairly large number of JMU fans, LU now has officially smoked JMU with achieving FBS. To those, in mostly desperation, who want to disparage LU because of their resources, and creative means to a) achieve FBS and b) to create an outstanding FB schedule in a very short time, man up. You had your chance and you blew it with the SBC debacle. And your best, past FCS rivals have all passed you by. Enjoy your FCS games. It's what many of you want and what you will receive. To those JMU fans who commend LU for the FBS move, good luck. It seems you will need it. And to those who do not, enjoy Hampton, that killer ETSU, Norfolk State, and Elon. Hey, they are close games you drive to.

I would trade our football past with JMU's, but I wouldn't trade our football future with them. They can stay in FCS if that's what they want. I'd rather be FBS and we're passing them by whether they believe it or not.

What prompted me to revise this old thread is much of the current diatribe on the JMU board about how great things are where they are. Well enjoy it guys. I'll take Army, ODU, UVA, Auburn, any day as an indy over being FCS and bet that LU will continue to schedule aggressively in the future. Just wait until the stadium expansion of LU is announced and LU bypasses JMU again with their 1/2 stadium.
