Let's wait and see how much LU is paying us to play at Lynchburg before you suggest it's a favor.

Ahhh, smack has already started with ODU 15 months before kickoff. Favor, what favor?

Also Liberty at some point would be an obvious 2nd choice addition
to C-USA to give ODU a rival if CUSA loses a few teams to the American.
I love Boca and 04-clap2 for playing a game there and a return to LU.

Dont count on it yet we dont have an ooc opening until 2020

If we do a 1-1 that may not happen for 4 or 5 years.

From Daytona, it's a shade under a 4 hour drive. I'll take it when and if it comes. And Boca is one very unique city.

Will take the two hour trip from Richmond, go to a terrific football venue, stay overnight at the Craddock-Terry with the family after enjoying a great postgame meal at Waterstone . Nothing about this trip, including the matchup, is bad. Liberty gave us a heck of a game in Norfolk that we were lucky to win. That your move up, combined with this terrific schedule you have crafted, will literally explode heads in Harrisonburg is the icing on the cake.

Congratulations!

RE: ODU will open as LU's first FBS home game
The UVA deal includes:
-500k from UVA for the game at UVA 2018
-700k in 2019
-Liberty pays 150k for the game in Lynchburg
-And there is a 1 million dollar buyout to change the contract. So I think it's safe to say UVA will play that game in Lynchburg.

I was thinking there was no way they would play the game in Lynchburg till I read about the million dollar cancel fee.

Contracts are broken all the time. If they want out they'll negotiate an escape fee and Liberty will go along, cause you'll want to play them in the future. Works both ways.

I doubt they'll budge that much. The contract is set up like that to avoid canceling.
