I'm generally anti-Liberty, but if they really offered to pay $24 million for their entry fee, I'd take them. If split evenly, that's something like $1.6-1.7 million more for each CUSA school. … 7fa70.html

Liberty even offered to open its checkbook. Sources told me that in 2016, Liberty offered Conference USA millions of dollars more than the usual $2 million admission fee for an invitation.

How many millions more? One source pegged the offer at $24 million. The offer coincidentally came at about the same time C-USA was learning its TV revenue would soon crater, going from paying $1.1 million per school annually to about $200,000.

But C-USA presidents, who had the final call, were unwilling to invite a private, evangelical school with conservative values and a sometimes controversial chancellor. That left the Flames to chart their own course.

Take it. They will be in CUSA soon enough might as well give them and JMU bids now.
