Would Memphis try to go P5 if they got an invite?
Haha. Umm, yeah, like everyone. Example was the school's effort four years ago with that farce phony "expansion" public consideration by the Big 8+4-2-2+2, oops, Big 12.

Since the ACC lost DC when Maryland departed, I think VCU might even be considered for non-football in the ACC. But I think if located 100 miles farther north would be required. For scheduling of non-revenue sports, I don't like odd number of teams in a league and 16 is better than 15.

The hoops to TE thing is a very unique and limited phenomonon. Its really only recently that TEs became a serious parts of the recieving strategy. And it just fits well with basketball players who are on the big side but quick and strong because they can jump and have good hands.
Its a shame that a guy like Mo who was such a good player for us had no career in basketball but thats the nature of mid major hoops.

Mo absolutely could've played basketball overseas. I'm not sure what that comment is supposed to mean. The NFL was a slightly more lucrative proposition.

Maybe odui should get Liberty to tell them how to be successful at the FBS level in football without other sports programs suffering.

Complelty abandon moraility, like being a Christian school and hiring a guy who got fired for calling escorts on a school phone And then top it off by having a billion a year in income so they have plenty of moeny to throw at it.

The big plan is to become, nationwide, to evangelical Christians, what Notre Dame was to catholics. So they ahve way more moeny to place this bet, and a much bigger payoff than jsut having a successfull football program. Liberty is basically a for profit school like DeVry, wiht a cross slapped on it to avoid paying the taxes a for profit school does.

TLDR: Liberty is in a unique situation, its not like it's a well run repeatable model.
