RE: We All Knew It Was Coming
Given the strength of upcoming Liberty schedules (Auburn, Ole Miss, Duke, Wake, Va Tech, Virginia, Army) it looks like Liberty is doing Georgia Southern a favor.

That's one of the most misguided things I've ever read on this board. You're nuts if you think before scheduling a game the AD's calls around to different campus groups to get their feel on it. It's a stinking ballgame. They're not coming to campus to hold a revival. Although given the state of the world we live in today that probably wouldn't be such a bad idea.

The AD should at least understand the views of the people who fund their program. I'd agree with you that schools that schedule Liberty either don't think that they should consult or even understand the views of groups opposed to endorsing Liberty University, or have decided to completely ignore/troll those groups.

It might be different if these groups aren't funding the athletic department. This has the potential for nothing but problems. Telling people 'f-u, we're scheduling Liberty and you, personally, get to pay for it' isn't a good plan.

A smart AD would be meeting with his funders and would understand their views. He or she would see each student population as someone that he or she would want to support FBS athletics.

Wonder if the same folks railing against Liberty for their belief system would have the same reaction if their school scheduled BYU or Notre Dame? I never heard any App person utter one peep of dissatisfaction with playing Furman or Samford. Two schools deeply rooted in Christian beliefs. Nor did they have a problem supporting a coach who was as deeply religious as you can get. Liberty is a convienent whipping boy for the left and some people just like to pound their chests.

Yeah I brought this up some time ago. If you want to go with religion I would rather play Liberty than ND or BYU. The thing is I wouldn't care to play any of them. None of them will convert me.

If we didn’t interact with any one with opposing views we’d be pretty lonely and boring.

It’s a football game - seems we’re taking this too seriously.

Trying to compare Furman and Samford with liberty is arguing in bad faith. Those two outclass liberty in both education and their faith. Liberty is embarrassing on both subjects

Yea, I'd have much less of an issue if USA scheduled Furman or Samford for a payday game.

It might be different if you weren't paying for a party you can't attend or that you are most definitely NOT welcome at. LGBT athletes and coaches are effectively locked out of the high salaries and multiple scholarships that we are paying significant amounts for. Scheduling Liberty is insulting and humiliating to our fans. And a clear sign that our ADs are going to further that discrimination rather than combat it.

If it wasn't serious money, you might have a point. But it is about serious money.

Lets make a deal...strip out the student fee and the taxpayer subsidy for athletics and make it voluntary...make the program completely revenue neutral for the University....then I'll STFU.

Doesn't bother me. If you don't like something don't go there. It's really simple. It's a big country. There are places that I am not comfortable at but I just stay away. I am not going to holler and scream t o make them agree with me. Amazed at the arrogance. I am American enough that it gets my goat when someone tries to ram something down my throat telling I have to agree with anything. If that hurts anyone's feelings...get a life live it and leave mine alone.

Oh BTW go APP beat Toledo. This is a sports page right?

Liberty is a private university and for home and homes no money is exchanged at the G5 level. Actually in some cases Liberty is paying G5 programs for these.

Signing these home and home isn’t an attack on any group of people, claiming such is quite stretch even by today’s standards.
