I'm Envious of Liberty's Endowment
I am green with envy With Liberty's endowment, they could buy 12 games a year at one million dollars each for the next 83 years (that's right the next century 2100).

They will thrive and survive. Time is on their side. And I want to play them every year. I want to beat the stuffings out of them and them beat the stuffings out of us. It will be the saints against the "Greedy Green Gold Niners."

Rice has a nice endowment. But I didn't think it's allowed to pay for sports. In fact, i don't know of a single case where a school used its endowment to pay for sports.

Liberty thrown down money like a P5! They will have schools lined up to play at their home field with the amount of cash they are offering.

More money than a P5 program, if they want to spend it. They have so much they could spend on football, it's like sitting at the poker table with a full house of 3 Phil Knights and 2 T. Boone Pickenses.

I think it's only a matter of time before we get a repeat of the SMU payola at Liberty

If you ain't cheating, you ain't trying hard enough. Ask UNC.

Except that it is pretty much OK now with the FCOA. So...no big deal anymore.

I read liberty has a billion in cash so plenty of money to buy games.
Schools can't use their endowment's for athletics only academics.

I doubt they get into an FBS conference but maybe they upgrade to a better olympic sports confdrence.

RE: I'm Envious of Liberty's Endowment
Liberty University's Endowment in 2015 was $1.1 Billion. By comparison, Virginia Tech's was $850 million. Liberty's endowment is large and growing fast. It is likely a $100 million higher today.

Miami's endowment, which I believe is the largest in the MAC, was $620 million in 2015.

Other G5 comparison.

UConn - $370 million
Ohio U - $500 million
Marshall - $120 million
Old Dominion - $194 million
U of Central Fl - $148 million
Colorado State - $294 million
