Will be moving up as an independent.
We should schedule a them maybe an easy W.
Still the smallest FBS stadium.
Liberty could even pay Charlotte to do it. And if Liberty is really desperate for a 2019 opponent maybe the school could get Liberty to buy out the gardner webb game for us and have them as an opening opponent.
At the press conference they announced they are expanding their stadium to 35,000. I’d love to play them, only a 3.5 hour drive.
They have a beautiful stadium and campus. Would love to make the drive up there if we ever got to play them.
Drive through Lynchburg regularly. Not a bad drive. But not a fan of this so-called “university”.
Tailgating at their stadium would be lame. Same problem when we played at Charleston Southern.

clt says they are dumb to do this. So arrogant to jump to fbs. Who do they think they are?
clt responds like an appy.
Guess they’ll have to rely on on-field performance, marketing, and cultivating a fan base to sell tickets then.

How stupid is that. And their stadium is already 4,000 seats larger than ours and they are going to expand it even more? Are they crazy? CHP and WBBJ need to go up there and straighten them out. I’m sure this move is nothing but a FANTASY.
Correct, and I can’t imagine what it would be like to watch 49er sports without alcohol.
They have pretty nice facilities…

Found two bars within .5 miles of the University, we’ll be fine
My family drove up to DC via Lynchburg the Sunday before Election Day in 2008. We ate brunch at Chili’s or Friday’s across from the campus and Thomas Road Baptist Church. They started serving alcohol to many people dressed in church clothes at noon.
Liberty has a large skating/hockey rink.
Maybe I missed it, but I thought there was a rule that you had to have a conference invite to move up?
They were given a waiver.

Why and how?
