On your statement and blood alcohol level, bravo! One of the best posts of the year!

On the Gil-thread point, I think it's natural to discuss the exploits of coaches past whenever things come up, from Gill to Hofher, to a Brian Polian or a Jim Haslett, no matter how they did during their time here.

To clarify my point in a more sober state. 

I order to grow and move on as growing Sports Program in D1, we all need to start looking forward. Its nice to bring up what our former alum are doing now but at some point it get ridiculous.  Right now UB is Coach Quinn, Reggie, Watt, Mack, etc. Let's focus on them and not 6 pages on Gill

What has Turner Gill done for UB this season? Nothing, not a single darn thing. Why, because he is not part of UB anymore.

Everlast they are talking about this on the Nebraska Boards... Gill was a QB in the 80's and an assistant coach in the 90's... do they need to stop talking about it so they can grow ;)

Maybe the program is also trying to move up.

From the Lynchburg News & Advance;

"Liberty also plans “a special announcement concerning the football program” at today’s news conference. Last October, Liberty hired Carr Sports Associates to begin an evaluation of the Flames’ overall athletic program. With the continued shifting of conference alignments nationwide, Liberty wanted to make itself as attractive as possible should the chance to move from the Big South present itself."

I think some of us should go over to the Liberty message boards to tell them exactly what they just got in their hire of Turner. Their message board is being overridden by rednecks from Kansas that are bashing the $hit out of Gill and I for one plan on giving them the other side of the story.

I understand this hire for Liberty.  Turner has always been front and center with his faith so this is a great hire for Liberty.  For Turner, this is a big gamble.  If he flames out with this team, he is done forever as a head coach.  I do think he will get more than two years to create a program but after two years, Turner was itching to leave Buffalo for greener pastures.  This is going to be interesting to watch unfold.  Good Luck Tuner.  We will be watching.

I like Turner Gill and I know he's a man who takes his faith seriously. I hoped he would do well at Kansas

However I've lost respect for him for going to Liberty and there is NO WAY I'd ever root for that team.

Here's why

Democratic Student association can't use the Liberty name.
http://www.thedailybeast.com/newsweek/blogs/the-gaggle/2009/05/22/liberty-university-bans-democrat-club.html

Quote
Liberty University's Democratic students club received notice last week that it would no longer be able to associate the University's name with any of its activities. According to a Lynchburg VA paper, the club's leadership was told "

“There is absolutely no animosity at all toward any of these kids," Falwell said. “They are good, Christian kids who sit with me at ball games. I just hope they find a pro-life family organization to affiliate with so they can be endorsed by Liberty again."



They are anti- gay and spread falsehoods
http://thinkprogress.org/lgbt/2011/09/02/311604/liberty-university-professors-all-gays-are-part-of-the-pedophile-movement/
Quote
Matt Barber of the Liberty Counsel and Liberty University School of Law had a chat today with fellow Liberty University law professor Judith Reisman about how GLSEN’s anti-bullying efforts are “sexualing children” and “running interference for the pedophile movement.” They agreed that all of the efforts of the LGBT movement (the “sexual anarchy” movement) are geared toward supporting “the pedophile movement.”


... and as one could predict.... one of their married professors is a sexual abuser.

Quote
Moon, 45, who taught at Liberty University for 13 years, commuted two days a week from Durham and taught statistics and mathematics.

Virginia newspapers reported that the student who brought the charges against Moon had gone to his office to take a test and complained of having chronic headaches and back aches after a car accident. He offered to give her a pressure point massage and during the massage she fell asleep. When she awakened, she alleged that he was touching her genitals.

Press release mentions that Liberty is looking to move up to FBS. But is the picture really of Gill? It doesn't look like him to me?

Always had the same problem at Buffalo.  Web sites were always putting up pics of Danny Barrett in articles about Gill.   One black man is the same as another, I guess.

Same old turner gill speech.. Interesting choice for him. If Liberty does move into the direction of FBS then im thinking Gill is right man for the job and he will be able to bring in recruits and he seems to think they have the facilities... He did it a Buffalo with NO facilities. But if they stay in the fcs for a few years then i dont know what he was thinking.. You go from  Head coach at UB to Kansas( didnt have enough time) to a 1AA school? I thought he would get a shot in the MAC or C-USA or something...

Shoulda stay at Buffalo Turner!

Also count me out for rooting for Gill @ Liberty. 

Not happening.  When he leaves there I might get back on the bandwagon.

I didn't know anything about that school until this whole Gill thing and now after reading about their "3,000 year old dinosaur fossils" and their ban of a student Democrat Club, I think I'll jump off of the Turner Gill support bandwagon as well.

liberty at a glace.

I am truly shocked they hired a black head coach in a multiracial marriage. 

After all they shut down the democratic club there for having liberal social views and being in line for an unltra conserative mindset it doesn't make sense.

Can't say I can root for Gill at Liberty either for the same reasons others were posting earlier. I wish him luck, and hope he can find a better coaching job soon.

Just love the tolerance...
