    But, to be honest, I am not surprised in the least. I saw it coming and even joked in other threads about when it would (inevitably) happen.
    Don't we have Kent State on our future schedule?

    It might not wear well 'today' but by 2025 & 2026 Liberty will be a FBS team with nearly a decade under their belt (no pun intended) in the division.

    I'm not a fan of this one either, but I'll withhold judgement until the next year or two and the rest of those years get filled out on the schedule for OOC.

    +1, in 10 years we may be very surprised regarding the status of Liberty and its position within the "G5 world". We all mocked GagState and we see where there headed. Let's gather some humility please before we belittle certain programs. Last time I checked we've gone 5-7 and 2-10 and border on being the laughing stocks of G5 football.

    Meh on this one. Just ... meh.

    Their coach the last time they came to Paulson was former Cleveland Browns coach Sam Rutigliano IIRC.

    I would rather play liberty than kent state or ball state any day.

    In a perfect world I would prefer we schedule any CUSA or AAC school excluding the F_U schools over any MAC school.

    I’ll wait until the year we play them to pass any sort of judgement. Time and perspective is always important to factor in.

    I will not be surprised in the least... they can print their own money, they will be a solid program by the time we see them on the field.

    Frankly, I am not sure what the people who are assuming these games to just be another win toward bowl eligibility are thinking.

    Yeah, I respect that, personally I just cannot get excited about Liberty, Kent St., Ball St. or the like.

    IMO it is obvious what TK's scheduling strategy is now... primary target is programs that have their own scheduling challenges. Not to say that is a bad thing, but that appears to be the plan

    +1, heck, by then Liberty could be challenging for a Access Bowl spot. We have all witnessed what can happen in a few quick years in FBS/G5 football and I'm not just talking about us, Bowling Green for example is in the same boat as us.
