Trump"s LU commencement speech
I'm not gonna count my chickens yet. But, thanks for the kind words and well wishes. LU still has a steep uphill road to tread. Liberty will recruit student athletes that align themselves with the values and expectations of the university. The pool of players will be much much smaller, but that is a result of out own selectivity..... thankfully.

Don't count on it. Now that Falwell has green lighted paying obscene amounts of money for football games and he hired the disgraceful Mc Caw as AD, he'll expect big time results. This pressure will eventually result in recruiting less than pristine character players.

Just like how Old Dominion is feeling more pressure to win now that they are FBS and so they are recruiting less than pristine character players? Or does this silly logic only go against Liberty?

Of course it applies to ODU as well. A little research will show you Wider has had to dismiss any number of low character players. It comes with a higher number of scholarships and a coach trying to keep fans, Ad's and Presidents happy, not to mention his own job.

Time will tell if you can be truly competitive at the FBS level with choir boys. It looks on the surface you have not really dominated the Big South, so why do you think things will be different now?

Don't let reality upset you

There is no question it is a challenge. But playing at the FBS level instead of the Big South helps widen our pool of prospects. It is a tough sell to get Texas and California Christian kids to come to play in the Big South if they have other quality options. This is another step toward opening up more of a national talent pool. But the challenge is what intrigues some of us the most.

OD, sounds like you are looking forward to the LU game. Choir boys. Can't wait until one of those goody two shoes rings the bell of an ODU player and stomps some ODU backside. Let's see where the two programs are in 5 years. You got the FBS head start. Can you maintain it?

Not. A higher source does not micro manage our lives to that point. Free will and skill determines wins and loses, not a divine intervention.

Thank you Times for restoring my faith in some LU grads. Immature, low level religion believes in a sugar daddy God.

Being a LU fan, who many times goes up stream with positions rather than with the LU fan flow, does provide me multiple opportunities for dialogue and discussion with those LU followers who tend to less blend free will with divine direction. Hey it's what makes a board lively and helps shed the conception that all LU fans are purely followers drinking the cool-aid blindly. This is hard to fathom for many that a fan can follow a team without endorsing all it's policies and practices. I just don't think my position is all that unique as others may want it to be. Because it's LU it just amps things up. Oh, and I am not a grad, am not connected with LU or TRBC in any way, have never attended the church or participated in any events other than attending sporting events. Just a fan who enjoys college athletics.
