No Turkeys Here...

Happy Thanksgiving, one and all!

Here's a SHOUT-out to you, dear readers, for a pleasant holiday weekend (and safe travels if you're out and about on family visits). We are thankful for the fun and the pride that comes from being involved with the Big South Conference--and hopeful that you feel the same way as you follow the Conference through its athletic adventures!

The Flames of Liberty have certainly been burning up the news this week:
  • LU repeated as Big South Volleyball Champions (pictured), knocking off Coastal Carolina at UNC Asheville on Sunday.
  • Liberty men's basketball pulled off an upset over ACC foe Virginia Tuesday night!
  • Unfortunately for both LU and the Big South, the Flames were snuffed out of an at-large bid to the FCS playoffs again...keep your countdown clocks running to the automatic bid in 2010 so we can take at least some of the mystery out of selection day.

SHAMELESS PLUG TIME: Looking for a good holiday gift idea? Try the Big South Conference Online Store for gear customized with Big South and school logos. Do it now, so you can get your made-to-order item finished and sent before Christmas!!!

Plug, Part II: if you don't want something to wear, how about something to display--like a great souvenir photo from action in the Big South Championships? Pictures for viewing and for sale are available right now--go to and click the PHOTOS box on the left side under the menu!

Now it's time to talk about what's "On The EDGE" this week--and it's all hoops, all the time: 20 basketball games (11 men, 9 women) from tonight through next Thursday. It's all in this week's video update...

Catch you later, my friends...
