It matters because we can be booted out anytime. And I bet we lose voting rights within the conference. It's a ****** thing to do.

Not a football member.

Pretty sure that's not how it works. Campbell was never an associate member. Are we getting shafted in a conference we helped found?
Purely speculation and hunch. Maybe it's because LU is the only school in this position of being FBS FB while most of it's remaining sports stay in the BS, and that LU can expect to increase their sports budgets, giving an economic, unfair advantage. Sort of like being the rich kid in the neighborhood who has all the toys while the other kids only have a few. Smells of economic unbalance.

But what's keeping other schools from spending all the money they want? The only difference is that Liberty has the money to spend while the other schools don't. It would be punishing LU for being rich which doesn't make sense. I don't think that is the reason for LU's affiliate status. After all, Campbell had football but didn't play it in the Big South but wasn't considered affiliate which is exactly the same situation as LU finds itself in now but is considered affiliate.

Sorry to reply to an aged post but I just now read it....Liberty did not "help found" the Big South. It was added several years later after the original Georgia schools moved back to D-II.
