We have simply not monitored the situation long enough. We need another decade or two of monitoring before making the jump.

What are the odds that Bridgewater will be playing Clemson before we finally don a pair of big boy britches?

I laughed at that. The Liberty at VA Tech game in 2 weeks will be big, especially if Liberty beats Southern Miss on Saturday as expected and is undefeated and in the Top 25 or just about there.

If Liberty can do this, there is no doubt that we can do it too. Will be interesting to see if they build off this for the next few years and if they get into the Sun Belt.

They just beat ACC Syracuse easily.

The poll that I saw today had them ranked about 30.

I want JMU to go FBS as much as anyone, but Liberty really sold its soul when it hired Hugh Freeze. Clearly, he knows football. But he brings some serious off field baggage and I am not sure even a top 25 ranking is worth that.

I personally thought the person they hired as AD was far worse. He helped cover up some terrible things at Baylor...but hey, top 25 votes and exposure!!!

I forgot liberty hired the former AD from Baylor who covered up for Art Briles. These are two pretty icky hires. Liberty is clearly on a win at all costs approach. I want big time sports and exposure for JMU but not at this heavy price.

Seems there might be a little more to that story.
Baylor & Art Briles
