My first thoughts were:
1) Good chance at an FBS win
2) Fairly nice pay day (400k for a bus ride isn’t too bad)
3) A win in recruiting when we win. Kids who are on the fence between us and them or will see who is the stronger program.

Heck, I say we schedule UMass also in 2026 if possible and just start knocking out G5’s who offer the same caliber of kids as us. Leave no question where they should choose to go.

Great idea! Chalk up the FBS wins.

By the way, I think we are going to beat Carolina, depending on who is under center. That will mark a big coming-out moment.

This is the one I use on my lockscreen on my phone:

But there have been additions since this one was taken. I think you guys will enjoy the experience and it is ridiculously close to home.

Looks like a very nice stadium. It will look so much better in 70% purple. Bridgeforth South!

That’s just not true. I know you want to feel like you’re in an exclusive FBS club and are held to a higher standard, but the NCAA hasn’t cared about the attendance figures in awhile and enforcing it is nonexistent.

I agree. That should have been a home and home.


Guys - we are not FBS ...why on earth would we get a home and home?

A person living on planet JMU can think a FBS team, g5 or not, would come to BFS.

RE: @ Liberty 2026
I'm wondering where are all the posters who believe we can't find FBS teams to play, even more so any G5 who are willing to give us a paycheck? Can we please stop this nonsense. In addition, NDSU can get games they simply must be willing to travel further than they'd prefer. Their pool of FBS schools, a bus ride away, is much smaller than ours.

Thinking it and believing we deserve more respect is well and good...but does not change a thing - we are a rung down the ladder...still, excited about this and think we will win.

It would be cool if we won on a Hail Mary but I think we’ll be ahead but too much for that.

I see what you did there. As a recovering Catholic, I applaud.

Epic Applause

Good game to play. Liberty has really nice athletic facilities all around. I do like their football stadium. I will buy a ticket if I am able to do so.

Because we are not chump change. It's not like Liberty is playing STFU. We deserve more respect than that.

Y’all aren’t chump change but the FCS is. Birds of a feather flock together. You’ll never get an FBS team to do a H&H until you move up.

Yes, his attempt to spin a false narrative is just sad... but given the school, also not remotely surprising.

Looks at schedule thread:

2021 and 2023 have no FBS opponents.

Reads press release on Weber State scheduling in 2021 where Jeff Bourne all but says FBS schools wouldn't schedule us that year.

Hmmm.... no clue. Definitely no evidence of FBS teams not playing us...

No Hyper. It's a free country and they're allowed to have a differing opinion on arithmetic.

2+2=3

Embarrassing that Liberty is FBS and we get a big payday to go play them. So belittling.

Thoughts?

Wow, that's an awful lot to pay for an ass-whipping!

Liberty admin should have hired Jussie Smollett. He knows how to get it done much cheaper.

I don't get it, can you explain?
