This Weekend

This weekend, we headed down to Lynchburg (Virginia, not Tennessee) for Homecoming at LU. Highlight of the weekend was the football game against Presbyterian College -- a PC-USA school that's just making the jump to Div. I (FCS) football. At the beginning of the season, this looked like a turkey shoot for LU -- the Flames are favored to win the Big South conference this year, and Presby is just making the jump, after all.

But Liberty has dropped a few close games (48-41 in 2 OT vs. William and Mary and a 35-34 heartbreaker to Toledo) and one they should have won (42-14 against Elon College, of all places). And Presby beat VMI and Coastal Carolina in pretty convincing fashion. So the results of this game were in doubt.

Up until about 2PM on Saturday. Liberty led 20-0 at the half, and went on to win 48-14.

All in all, this looks to be a promising rivalry (especially if Ergun Caner gets into it. I can hear the "Remember Servetus" chants now ...). We play them on the road next year, and fans of both teams are already looking forward to it.

EDIT: And I almost forgot -- BEAT COASTAL
