Frankly, we need a rival that is close by. With the disdain some of our fans apparently have for Liberty, the opportunity seems to be there if they can build their program. God knows they have the money to do it (oops that punny). I'm all for games against FBS teams in our state. Its a hell of a lot better than playing Hampton, NSU, and Albany, or traveling to Eastern Michigan Buffalo IMO.

What does any of that have to do with us taking a buy game from a school that has yet to play a game as an FBS team? Selig said we wouldn't take buy games. And yet, here we are.
Good, maybe we can upgrade some positions now 05-stirthepot

RE: ODU will open 2018 Football at Liberty
I love this as an away game that we can travel to via a day trip. Liberty gave us a heck of a game in Norfolk, and their fans will be amped. Religion and politics will always be controversial, but their fans traveled well to Norfolk, and their safety picked off two Heinicke passes in the end zone to kill drives.

As for the comments about disagreeing on emotional issues with respect, I could not agree more. Let's hope Wood is getting a big payday for this game, as we are getting a driveable away game. All good in my book.

ODU will open 2018 Football at Liberty
I am very thankful and excited ODU will be LU's first FBS game. In my opinion it is good for both schools, and at least is an easy road game to attend. I am very impressed with the rise of ODU in it's first few years of FBS and can only hope Liberty can emulate that success. I went to an ODU game while stationed at Ft. Eustis and have followed the program for years. It is exciting football under Wilder. I even had my kids take some private baseball lessons with an old assistant ODU baseball coach and went to a couple basketball games. ODU is a great place. I hope I'll be able to attend the ODU game in 18 as it corresponds witht my return from Korea and my daughter will be attending her first year at LU.

As far as the Catholic poster who has had a poor experience with Protestants, we don't all hate Catholics. I am sorry you have been treated poorly. Folks I know neither treat Catholics, atheists, people of other faiths or beliefs poorly or disrespectfully.

I hope we can continue to play ODU in the future. It can be a good game for both schools. May you go 13-0 this year and 12-1 next.

See ya'll next year! We desperately need a rival but I hope it ends up being VT and you guys go down in Flames!

Never too early to start the smack talk.

Good luck this season!

Posted from mobile device. Hopefully it's coherent.

But it ruins the away/home sequence we had with UVA and VTech. Now we're playing then both away in the same year, making it harder to win either of those games. As far as I can see, this move is a lose/lose/lose for us.

I think our team will be approved by then. 2017 will be a measuring stick for ODU football.

RE: ODU will open 2018 Football at Liberty
Drive times via Map quest from ODU's campus:

1. VT 4:57
2. Liberty 3:49
3. JMU 3:32
4. UNC 3:31
5. NC State 3:07
6. UVA 2:44
7. ECU 2:24

For me, it's hard to be enthusiastic about traveling to Lynchburg for a game against an FCS squad (albeit moving up to FBS in '19).

You could have just stopped after "our fans complain."

I'm one of the chronic complainers but I'm with Giles on this one.

My bad. I read your post wrong. Didn't notice the h/h had a question mark after it. I thought you were proclaiming that there should be no home and home against a team like Liberty.

All I will say is that these look like fun games to attend. However, These types of schedules are what get coaches fired if they don't start recruiting better. We have not done well against mid level FBS programs in the past.

Liberty's a mid-level FBS now?
