I'm said it before but I think this is the most realistic of all the fantasy conferences. Everyone gets a few nearby schools and/or rivals. It has a pretty good recruiting footprint. It is a pretty clean conference.

IMO LU's natural home is independent but this could be a fun conference. This is a possible division breakdown.

North Division
Marshall
WKU
MTSU
Liberty
ODU
App State

South Division
Charlotte
CCU
Georgia St.
Georgia So.
FAU
FIU

Protected crossovers: Liberty/CCU & ASU/Charlotte.

I'd flip App and Charlotte. The north would be way too strong like that.

I just think App State would rather be in the south as their top rival is Georgia Southern.

RE: New conference idea
Forget about the state and position of our program right.
Would you rather LU remain Independent or play in a conference?

I’d rather be a conference member.

For football I'd rather be Indy. For all sports I'd prefer a conference. I would like to be in a conference but I'm happy with Indy unless the conference is a big step up like AAC.

I want a P5 as our final destination. I'm not particularly picky about which one as long as we get into a Power conference. Until then, I want us in the position that helps us achieve that goal. I think independence is best for that, though the American is also good. However, we aren't getting into the American as it currently stands, so joining a future AAC would mean it lost key members.

I want a conference in order to play for a conference championship, have bowl tie-ins, have conference awards, etc. Independence allows us more scheduling freedom which lets us get more P5 opponents than being in a G5 conference would allow. If we're only going to schedule two or so P5, we might as well join a G5 conference when we can as we can schedule two P5 in a conference. I would rather play five give or take so that we look more like a P5 than a G5 and we get our brand out there where the bigger fan bases see it.

My dream for LU athletics would look something like this...
Indy - football
Hockey East - M/W hockey
Big East - All other sports

More realistic...
Indy - football
Club hockey
A10 - all other sports
