Sunbelt eventually, although with the athletic budget they have, they could grab our spot in the AAC.

Not sure how I feel about this one.

Not much to gain from this game and a lot to lose.  Seeing that we're more established, we could have pushed for a 2 for 1 deal instead of just a straight up 1 for 1.  I think Liberty got the better end of the deal unless we're getting paid more.

UB may be more established, but Liberty is the "Evangelical Notre Dame". They likely have much deeper pockets.

You can say that again. Their endowment puts UB to shame and they are determined to become an athletic power. They will leave UB in the dust in a few years.

They have been trying to do that for 30 years.  Liberty does not exactly cause other to fear them.

They have tons of money to burn, but will not get a major conference invite because their academics are a joke.
So, thunder through, Go Blue! Give a Cheer, never fear!

I was not aware that all conferences were thinking that academics are too important.  It seems like maybe only the Big 10 is one that cares.
