I get the relevance, but FFS let's at least contain it to one thread.
Unfortunately, everything is political these days. Going to get worse. People don't want to associate with Liberty for political and/or religious reasons and that's fine. I couldn't care less personally, from a business standpoint, you couldn't ask for a better conference mate. They are close by, have nice facilities, and all their games have a nice broadcast. And you don't turn into a born again Christian or white supremacist after kickoff/tip off.

Anybody on your side aware of if the phone is ringing in Norfolk? A JMU/ODU put up or shut up game would be great.

JMU has never beaten ODU.

Great answer

All I meant was that both sides claim to be the better football team. This crazy year may provide an opportunity to leave it on the field.

After JMU's admin measures the distance from the Bridgforth Stadium parking lot to Foreman Field's visitor's parking spaces with a yardstick to verify the game is close enough ODU gets a home game that would be well attended and fun for both sides.





The "put up or shut up" statement didn't fly, unless you were referring to JMU.

I assumed that was all that you meant. In responding to that thought, all I was saying is that JMU felt similarly about that the times in the past that the two teams met on the field to settle things. JMU came up short each time. I agree that isn't proof that the same results would be guaranteed if the teams played this season - who knows.

As for the possibility of JMU playing one or more games against ODU to fill out each other's schedule - I'd be in favor of it if ODU has a scheduling vacancy or two to fill.

I believe in diversity and inclusion. Therefore let’s put Liberty on the schedule ASAP!

Yeah ......NO.

Why not? Liberty introduces problems. Why associate yourself with baggage?

Go back and read the part that I responded to (the bold print part). When comparing Philly to Lynchburg, it is an easy pick. Philly is a cesspool and loaded with all the problems that many big cities have, Lynchburg is not any of that.

I love the beauty of Southwest Virginia, but I'm also choosing Philadelphia over Lynchburg everyday and twice on Sundays. Tons to do and see, multiple ways to get there, cool riverfront, and an awesome citizenry.

I might choose to live in Lynchburg, but to visit for a trip and a football game, I’d take Philly ever time.

Since I don't live in either Lynchburg or Philadelphia, where I live is irrelevant to those two locations that are being compared here. The reasons they are being compared is because some people have mentioned Temple and Liberty Universities which brought their locals into the discussion.

Big cities such as Philadelphia aren't for everybody, but they certainly are for some. Same can be said for smaller cities like Lynchburg and more rural areas as well. Some people like the hustle and bustle, and some don't. I don't think anyone prefers higher crime, higher prices, heavy traffic, etc., but some are more willing to put up with that than others just to experience some of the things that the biggest cities often provide (i.e. major sports teams, museums, fine dining, big name hotels, etc.).

I've had a lot of experience with big cities across the country and in different parts of the world. I've spent weeks at a time for work in big cities such as (Charleston; Los Angeles; Long Beach; New Orleans; San Diego; San Francisco; Sasebo, Japan; Seattle area; Singapore; and Yokosuka, Japan) since the mid 80's - and most of them I've been to multiple times. During the same time period I've spent up to a week at a time in big cities such as (Baltimore; Cleveland; Fukuoka, Japan; Las Vegas; Philadelphia; Providence; and Washington DC). Without getting specific, some of those were much more enjoyable to be in than others for a variety of reasons. Those more enjoyable places were the ones I always looked forward to visiting again when work necessitated me going there. My favorite work destination was a smaller city on the Mississippi Gulf Coast which I have been to at least a dozen times. Now that I am retired we get to go there just for the fun of it, and as soon as things get back to normal we plan on going back for another visit.

So every woman from Liberty would make a man miserable? Not getting your point? Or the convocation requirement? That is actually a "positive" in some people's perspective.

I am not in favor of the liberal indoctrination that has taken over most college campuses, but if that is where someone wants to fit in, not my place to discourage them.
Sorry, in the current environment, the hive and me are at odds and not seeing things the same way, so I choose otherwise. That does not make me right and you wrong, nor does that make either of us horrible people. We just disagree, and that used to be respected with dignity and class not too long ago.
