But I was only naming teams I thought might take part in a new league. I can't see anyone leaving the AAC.MUsince96 wrote:I'd toss in ECU, Coastal and maybe a MTSU in the mix.

You join the Sun Belt or Conference USA, most of them only get to play 1. I would think that can help us in recruiting against G5's. Sure I'd like a conference title game and rivalries, but I don't think joining those two conferences really enhances Liberty football much. I'd join the AAC or better also. Clearly, in terms of the other sports, especially basketball, we need to get out of the A-Sun into a better conference.You could schedule 3 P5's a year playing in a conference. You're in charge of your OOC schedule. Not the league. Plus you'd be eligible for the NY6 Access Bowl.
With Jerry looking like he's on his way out I'd love for you all to be looked at as a more acceptable conference addition.
I think a league based around Marshall, Liberty, JMU, ODU, App State, and Charlotte could be really fun.
Don't care much for Coastal or Middle personally but I could see Coastal being included.
